EMS vs Microcurrent: What's the best option?

Like the experts say, for areas that need firming and lifting, the use of microcurrent with electrical muscle stimulation, or EMS, is the best option. EMS is different from microcurrent. I’s deeper stimulation, and exercises your facial muscles by contracting them. You can even see your facial muscles contract. It’s totally weird! It’s kind of like waking up your muscles, and it tells them to produce more ATP. Here at Venus Glam, we like to use EMS more for the lower parts of the face where there might be more sagging, and microcurrents for the eyes and forehead.

What Are The Benefits Of A Microcurrent Facial?

Microcurrent facials deliver a variety of benefits to patients who wish to maintain a more youthful looking appearance and is an extremely safe and gentle non-invasive alternative to dramatic plastic surgery procedures, laser resurfacing, chemical peels, Collagen and Botox injections and other invasive treatments. The results can vary by individual and skin type, are gradual, and will not just "happen" over night. Although microcurrent facials are known to produce an immediate and temporary rejuvenating effect, continued daily application will provide more cumulative long-term, lasting results!

What is an EMS unit used for?

EMS stands for electro-muscle stimulation. An EMS unit causes the muscles to contract, by mimicking the action potential that comes from the central nervous system. 

EMS units are used for a number of different functions, examples include:

  • Muscle strengthening
  • Rehabilitation purposes
  • Preventing disuse muscle atrophy
  • Increasing local blood circulation
  • Relaxation of muscles
  • Cosmetic muscle toning




For lower parts of the face, we recommend our best-selling beauty device Power V Lifting. The technology behind this device is EMS electronic pulse technology, with micro-vibration. It has been developed to stimulate specific muscles in the face, allowing the face to become firmer by lifting and tightening the skin.

It produces micro-currents via the electrodes. It impulses the motor nerves so that the targeted muscle groups have to exercise passively in the way of expanding and contracting. The EMS therapy also improves blood circulation, enhances muscle strength, endurance, and reduces fat.
