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 spoon electrode is used for the massage of the small areas, like under the eyes, crow feet area, around nose or lips. The part with a metal cup is to be inserted into high frequency device handpiece.
The mushroom electrode is the one used for a general high frequency massager 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.
The rod electrode is used to treat small spots, like blemishes or other areas of concern of the face. It produces strong high frequency charge and should be applied only for a few seconds at each spot. Hold it a bit away from the skin to create an electric arch. Do not apply at the same spot more than 15 seconds.
The comb electrode is a low glowing electrode and does not produce a strong spark. It is used to comb the hair to deliver the high frequency charge to the scalp. Before use, make sure your hair is combed well and not tangled. It is not a real comb and not a substitution for combing hair
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.
