The Glass Electrode is a part of the High Frequency Device. It is used to transmit the static electricity from a handpiece. The electrode is a glass tube filled with Neon or Argon gas.
The gas used determines the color of the electrode. Neon glows bright orange, when Argon glows faint violet, sometimes not even visible in a daylight. The color of the electrode does not affect the output of the high frequency – the static charge.
The mushroom electrode is the one used for a general high frequency massage over larger areas, like face, arms, legs or décolleté zone. It produces steady stream of the static charge and glides smoothly due to its disk like shape of the end of electrode.
Do not insert or remove the electrode when the device is turned on.
Remove and insert the electrodes with care as glass products are fragile and there is a laceration hazard present. Excessive force must not be used or force in a direction which will make the glass snap. Thought should be given as to where the sharp edge of the glass might go if it does break and the grip arranged accordingly. The glass may be wrapped in a towel or thick layers of paper tissue to reduce the hazard in case the glass got damaged.
Inspect the electrode before and after use for cracks or scratches. Exercise reasonable caution associated with the use of glass products.
Glass “sharps” must be disposed of in the proper containers and not in the ordinary waste-bins.
