You've heard of home electrical muscle stimulation treatments. Do they really work? Here is what I think that you need to know about EMS home therapy systems, from safety to effectiveness.
Electrical muscle stimulation: the lowdown
Electrical impulses are generated naturally in our bodies, causing our muscles to contract. Essentially, this is how we move. If we lose the ability to contract a muscle, it can lead to atrophy and loss of function in that body part.
By using EMS equipment, we can mimic these impulses to condition the muscles.
EMS - also known as myoelectric stimulation or neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) - is a method of stimulating muscle contraction using electrical impulses. It is mainly used as physical therapy for the strength training of athletes and as a rehabilitation instrument for people with mobility problems. What's more? EMS is also used in cosmetics as electrotherapy.
Electric muscle stimulation: the right facial workout for you.
We specialize in the EMS department of cosmetic electrotherapy. Our EMS devices use gentle, low-level microcurrent pulses to stimulate the facial nerves.
When the nerves are activated, they send messages to the brain. The neurons in the brain then return the message to the surrounding muscle fibres, causing them to expand and contract.
This expansion and contraction are exactly what your body does when you exercise. When you use EMS equipment on your face, think of it as each muscle group doing tiny sit-ups. The result is a toned look with firmer, smoother skin. One of our favourite parts is that the benefits are immediate, with no recovery time.
How EMS Facials Work?
You have 43 muscles in your face. In order for them to stay fit, they need to be active - and that's where EMS comes in. As your facial muscles get a workout from the EMS machine, your body responds by increasing the output of adenosine triphosphate (ATP).
ATP is the primary chemical energy source for muscle function and increases overall strength and flexibility. Your body also gets ATP to perform cellular functions that promote skin cell renewal and rejuvenation, resulting in a firm and supple skin.
Consistent use of EMS results in a more contoured and defined jaw and cheeks. EMS also boosts your overall cellular metabolism, increases blood circulation for a healthy glow, and supports your natural lymphatic system processes to flush toxins out of your body.
In addition, the tightening and lifting of each muscle group reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while restoring the skin's youthful elasticity.
Basically, as your collagen production accelerates, you will benefit from all the benefits it brings.
Cooseon, the multifunctional tool
The COOSEON® RF EMS LED Vibration 4-in-1 Photorejuvenation Treatment Wand is a small handheld 4-in-1 tool that combines EMS technology with therapeutic warming, ultrasonic vibration and red light therapy. It is applied around the eyes as well as the face and neck to help reverse the visible effects of ageing and sun damage.
One of the best parts? The COOSEON® RF EMS LED Vibration 4-in-1 Photorejuvenation Treatment Wand is small enough to fit in your clutch bag and can be carried around for on-demand facial refreshment.
Therapeutic warming delivers stimulation deep into the skin layers to improve blood circulation. Activating your lymphatic system helps to naturally remove dead and dying skin cells from your body. But rest assured, the device is not too hot to the touch, making your experience comfortable and soothing.
The EMS function gently lifts and tones your skin, increasing collagen and elastin production. Your body uses these building blocks to reorganize the scaffolding beneath the skin's surface, remodelling from within. The result is more elastin fibres and collagen thickness.
Red Light Therapy
Medical-grade LED lights send safe, warm, non-UV light directly to the skin's layers to promote cell renewal and rejuvenation. Over time, your body will rejuvenate from the inside out, revealing new skin cells that look youthful and smooth. Minor skin imperfections will fade away and be replaced by soft facial skin.
The gentle ultrasound setting gently relaxes and opens the pores to maximize the absorption of your chosen serum. The extra depth reached by the serum provides long-lasting results, keeping your skin nourished and soft for hours. The vibrations also stimulate blood circulation, giving your face a healthy glow.
How safe is home EMS?
Electronic muscle stimulation at home with a handheld device is safe as long as the device you use is developed, manufactured and tested with safety as a priority.
The COOSEON® RF EMS LED Vibration 4-in-1 Photorejuvenation Treatment Wand has a smart touch sensor that turns the device on when it comes in contact with your skin.
You should only avoid using your home EMS if you.
1.Have a skin disease, medical condition, malignancy or cut
2.Have another serious medical condition (if you are unsure, consult your doctor)
3.Are you pregnant or trying to become pregnant
4.Have an increased sensory response or epilepsy
5.Use a pacemaker or other active implant
The COOSEON® RF EMS LED Vibration 4-in-1 Photorejuvenation Treatment Wand is available as a stand-alone treatment that combines all four treatments into one step, bringing you closer to your best skin. You can also use it with your favourite serum for enhanced absorption. This compact, handheld device is safe enough to use several times a day to maintain a youthful, healthy glow, keeping your skin soft and radiant.
