If you’re looking for a way to tone your muscles without lifting weights, faradic wave technology is the answer. Faradic is a form of electrical stimulation and because it uses a higher intensity current than a micro-current stimulation, it is ideal for toning and firming body muscles. Electrically conductive pads will be positioned over specific muscle groups to deliver the current in a series of short pulses that are a few milliseconds in length.

The current will stimulate the motor points of the muscle as it passes through the conductive pads, which will trigger a visible muscle contraction. Faradic treatments can be customized to the needs of each person because you can adjust the intensity of the current, the pulse length, the wavelength and the rest period between each muscle contraction, which can be based on the needs of every individual. This technology can be used to tone wasted muscles and to stimulate blood supply in wasted limbs. It will also help prevent muscle atrophy and fibrosis in the muscle tissue while improving the venous and lymphatic circulation.

This technology can also be used for aesthetic purposes and is often used for body contouring, slimming and toning. Every treatment session will provide a form of passive muscle exercise and because it is an alternating current, it will stimulate muscles through nervous excitement because it can change its polarity at pre-set times. Each stimulus will cause a contraction, which will be followed by a period of rest.

A low frequency faradic current can produce muscle contractions that increase muscle tone and is applied for muscular sagging and hypertonia cases. In addition to stimulating the muscles, the application of the faradic current will also promote optimal metabolism and blood circulation of the muscle tissue. Since muscular contractions act on the circulatory system, they cause the stimulation of blood and lymphatic circulation to return. This treatment is so advanced that it can even break down hard and stubborn cellulite because the machine has different wavelengths, so the treatments can be tailored based on your personal needs.

The faradic current has a generator and electrical stimuli cables that have current conducting plates and these can be tailored to the body in the areas that need muscle stimulation. Such areas can include the arms, buttocks, abdomen and the inner and outer thighs. The muscle contractions that are performed by faradic currents can be compared to active isometric exercises that aim to stimulate muscle metabolism. The number of sessions you require will depend on your desired effects.
