What is the Difference Between EMS & Microcurrent?

EMS and microcurrent technology are both used in skincare devices and treatments to improve the appearance and health of the skin. While our Essential Mask uses innovative EMS technology, we also recommend Microcurrent technology as a complementary treatment to our micro-spicule products. But how do they differ?

Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS)

Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) involves the use of low-level electrical currents to stimulate and contract muscles. It has primarily been used in physical therapy and sports medicine to rehabilitate muscles, enhance muscle strength and improve muscle performance.

In skin care, EMS devices are designed to target facial muscles. Some benefits associated with EMS in skincare include improved circulation, enhanced lymphatic drainage and potentially increased absorption of skincare products.

Microcurrent Technology

Microcurrent technology utilizes low-level electrical currents and is often referred to as "facial toning" or "non-surgical facelift" technology. Microcurrent devices work by mimicking the body's natural electrical currents, which are involved in cellular communication and muscle contractions. The electrical impulses are believed to stimulate collagen and elastin production, promote cell regeneration, improve circulation and increase ATP (adenosine triphosphate) levels, which are essential for cellular energy.

Microcurrent technology is primarily used for facial rejuvenation purposes, aiming to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin tone and texture, and provide a lifting effect.
