Electromagnetic and electronic muscle stimulation (EMS) are techniques used to activate and strengthen muscles through the application of electrical impulses. While both methods involve the use of electrical currents, they differ in their mechanisms of action.
Why Electromagnetic Muscle Stimulation?
Electromagnetic muscle stimulation utilizes electromagnetic energy to stimulate muscle contractions. It involves the use of a specialized device that emits electromagnetic waves, which penetrate the skin and target the underlying muscle fibers. The electromagnetic pulses cause involuntary muscle contractions, similar to what occurs during physical exercise. This helps to strengthen and tone the muscles, improve muscle definition, and enhance overall muscle performance.
Benefits of EMS
Electronic muscle stimulation, also known as neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) or electric muscle stimulation (EMS), involves the application of low-level electrical currents directly to the muscles. The electrical impulses are delivered through electrodes placed on the skin, targeting specific muscle groups or areas. The electrical stimulation causes the muscles to contract, simulating the natural muscle activation that occurs during voluntary movements. This can help to improve muscle strength, increase muscle endurance, and enhance muscle recovery.

Electromagnetic and Electronic Muscle Stimulation are techniques that use electrical impulses to stimulate muscle contractions. Electromagnetic Muscle Stimulation utilizes electromagnetic energy, while Electronic Muscle Stimulation involves the use of low-level electrical currents applied directly to the muscles.
Both methods work by delivering electrical impulses to the muscles, causing them to contract. Electromagnetic Muscle Stimulation uses electromagnetic waves to induce muscle contractions, while Electronic Muscle Stimulation delivers low-level electrical currents through electrodes placed on the skin, targeting specific muscle groups.
When performed correctly and under the guidance of a trained professional, Electromagnetic and Electronic Muscle Stimulation is generally considered safe. However, it’s important to follow proper protocols and use appropriate settings to prevent any potential risks or discomfort.
Be sure to shave the target area the morning of or the day before your treatment, leaving the hair no longer than 2 millimetres. Shaving removes the majority of hair but leaves a small portion in the follicle to absorb the laser energy. Cleanse your skin with soap and water, and do not use any lotion, deodorant or perfume on the area.
Electromagnetic and Electronic Muscle Stimulation can be used as a complement to regular exercise but should not be considered a substitute for physical activity. These techniques can enhance muscle activation and provide additional benefits, but a well-rounded exercise routine that includes strength training, cardiovascular exercise, and flexibility training is still essential for overall fitness.
The duration of a session can vary depending on the specific treatment and individual needs. Typically, a session can range from 20 to 45 minutes. Your healthcare or fitness professional will determine the appropriate session length for your goals and condition.
However, this should not be confused with permanent hair removal, as we cannot guarantee that all of your hair follicles will never produce hair again. The majority of the follicles will be damaged and unable to grow new hair, but a small number of them may still produce fine hairs.
The number of sessions required to see results can vary depending on factors such as your current muscle condition, fitness goals, and individual response. Generally, a series of sessions is recommended, typically scheduled over several weeks, to achieve optimal results.
