Currently, body myostimulation is becoming one of the most popular medical procedures. It is used not only for beauty but also for improving muscle tone.
Myostimulation is the exposure on muscle tissue with impulses of electric current. For this purpose, special devices called myostimulators are used. They are able to generate electrical impulses that stimulate muscle fiber contraction. The fact is that the impulse method of exposure has the maximum similarity with the passage of signals sent by the nervous system. This approach makes stimulation a more natural way to achieve the desired results.
Under the effect of an electric current, muscles contract while they actively consume nutrients. However, this does not mean that this methodology completely replaces conventional physical exercises.
This method was originally developed for medical purposes rather than equipping treatment rooms in beauty salons. The primary goal of muscle myostimulation is to increase the tone when they are weakened, flabby, paralyzed and lethargic. After passing through a number of procedures, partial recovery of working capacity is achieved, for example, after prolonged illnesses accompanied by reduced physical activity or its complete absence.
With the development of cosmetology, the myostimulation effect has found application for restoring body aesthetics. Regular myostimulation has proven efficiency in cleansing muscle tissue from toxins followed by saturation with nutrients and oxygen. As a result, an increase in skin elasticity is achieved, the skin acquires a healthy structure and color. The body's ability to regenerate is improved. Muscles lose excess fat which accumulates in the form of deposits. Thus, it is obvious that myostimulation for weight loss will effectively fight cellulite.

Next, a suitable program is selected and current is applied. The average duration of the procedure is usually 15 minutes. Painful sensations can be experienced, especially during the first session.
Upon completion of the procedure, the electrodes are removed, the gel is washed off.
The standard course of treatment involves the passage of at least 10 procedures after which they take a break of at least six months. The interval between sessions is chosen so that the muscles have time to recover after exercise. Usually it is 2-3 days.
The effectiveness of myostimulation depends not only on how often the procedure has to be done. The type of equipment used also plays a significant role.
