FAQs About Electrical Muscle Stimulation
How many treatments do I need?
A typical program would be to do 4-6 treatments in your first month, followed by one session a month for maintenance purposes.
What does an EMS session feel like?
The session can feel like a vigorous workout for your muscles, though you will be sitting or laying down comfortably the whole time. Typically there is no pain associated with electromyostimulation.
What side effects are there with EMS?
EMS is non-invasive and there are no major side effects aside from muscle soreness (similar to after an intensive workout).
How much downtime is needed?
There is no visible downtime after the procedure and normal activity can be resumed immediately.
When will I see results?
Some patients will notice an improvement after a single session, with full results visible after 4-6 treatments within one month.
Are the results permanent?
EMS results can last up to 6 months, however much like working out, the results are not permanent. Your muscles need regular stimulation to stay toned and strong. We recommend a once a month session for maintenance after your first month of 4-6 treatments.
