What is the difference between microcurrent and EMS electro-stimulation?

EMS and microcurrents: two stimulation technologies not to be confused! They are used in the fields of health, body and facial aesthetics. Although they may seem similar, there are major differences between these two approaches. Are you familiar with them?

Electrostimulation, also known as electrical muscle stimulation (EMS), is a technique involving the use of an electric current to stimulate the muscle.


This technique is commonly used to improve muscular strength and endurance. It also inhibits pain and muscular effort. Its intensity is measured in milliamperes, which makes it possible to contract a muscle at rest. Generally speaking, sessions are limited in duration and supervised, whether in a gym or a medical environment.

Microcurrents, on the other hand, are low-intensity electrical currents. Measured in micro Amperes, they stimulate the skin and subcutaneous tissues. They use the same frequency as the body.

In the 2000s, doctors and engineers combined their expertise in electro-neurophysiology and micro-current to develop the patented MCAA or MCRP programme.

This MCAA program, used in face, helps to improve skin quality, strengthen the skin barrier, improve the appearance of the complexion and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

Under the action of the microcurrent, the stimulated cell produces up to 500% more ATP: cellular energy essential for growth.

Cell division is encouraged and new cells are formed: is cell regeneration.

MCRP programmed regenerative microcurrent is used in SkeenPatch devices Body. This programme is the fruit of 20 years of clinical research and laboratory tests.

MCRP promotes cell regeneration and follows the nerve pathway to restore the body's proper functioning. This programme enables treat pain, restore normal organ function, stimulate blood circulation and accelerate tissue healing. 

The main difference between electrostimulation and microcurrent lies in the way these 2 techniques stimulate the body.

The other important differences are their intensity, but also their application and use. Electrostimulation is often used to target specific muscles, improve muscle strength or inhibit chronic pain.

The current microphone is used to treat inflammation and accelerate tissue regeneration, and has very few contraindications, with its gentle intensity. With the exception of people with pacemakers and pregnant women, this technology can be used on sensitive areas such as the face and neck.

Depending on your needs and wishes, don't confuse these 2 techniques and choose the one that suits you best!
