The Cerave lotion I like:

High frequency devices are used primarily for antimicrobial purposes. For some reason I didn’t explicitly state this in the video. 🤷‍♀️They’re fantastic to use post-extraction, and on inflamed acne, inflamed ingrown hairs, or anything else that has caused a microbe-related immune response in the skin.

The high frequency device I’m using is not available on Amazon, but here is an option:

Sometimes the same version of the same electronic device will be sold at different price points or in different outer packaging with different company names. It’s weird. So just look for one that the reviews say works reliably.

Whether you get red or violet doesn’t seem to matter much. High frequency devices have been around for a very long time, so people aren’t writing much new about them these days. But here’s some stuff to get you acquainted:

Silicone scrubber thingy is from the dollar store. Don’t buy those at Sephora, just fyi. Same shit, huge markup.

Hi, I’m Veronica, a CIDESCO certified, medically trained esthetician. As of 2018, I have been an esthetician for 15 years! My resume includes a famous LA plastic surgery center’s medical spa, a five-star hotel, two of the most famous waxing institutions in Beverly Hills, and I have spent four years consulting with brands on R&D and marketing. My skin care philosophy may be a bit different than a lot of what you hear about on the internet, but it’s based on many years of professional and personal experience and study. And my cats are cute.

If anything that I say is helpful to you, I would sincerely appreciate if you take a moment to like and share my videos!
