Electronic muscle stimulation was recently one of the options marketed for the reduction of cellulite. Often these devices are used to relax muscles, increase blood circulation, prevent blood clots and rejuvenate muscles after a stroke. The use of the electronic muscle stimulation machine for all these procedures are approved by the FDA. However, while the machines for electronic muscle stimulation was effective when it comes to procedures that have just been mentioned, it remains to see if they have the same efficiency when it comes to removing cellulite.
How does it work?
Electronic muscle stimulation works by causing muscle contraction without the need to signals sent by the brain. This simply means that contract your muscles and relax through electrical impulses sent out by the electronic muscle stimulation to your body. Muscle groups are activated and triggered by the skin. It is actually “the exercise brainless” because the brain is not necessary to do anything. Normally, when we exercise our brain is sending these electrical impulses controlling a muscle to move, to bend or relaxing depending on what we want that muscle does. With electronic muscle stimulation, one may be asleep, and not have to exert any effort, while the machine does all the work by sending electrical signals from your body.
When used in the treatment of cellulite, most electrical pulses will be directed to the problem areas affected by cellulite. Demand often used for improving blood circulation in the area below the cellulite that electronic muscle stimulation is marketed as a dissolving of cellulite, a reason to apply in the first place.
Is the treatment viable?
The viable of Electronic muscle stimulation as a treatment for cellulite is doubtful. No detailed studies have been made regarding the electronic muscle stimulation used in this way, and all you have to rely on are the manufacturer claims that are often selfish and have little foundation. In addition, there was no FDA approval for the electronic muscle stimulation as a treatment of the viable cellulite. The FDA also prohibits any marketing electronic muscle stimulation devices for carving or sculpting the body. The treatment of cellulite seems to fall into these categories.
Exercise is always the best way you want to choose
Looking at all the requests being made, electronic muscle stimulation can be easily replaced by regular physical training. Why pay for an electronic muscle stimulation treatment when you can get out and walk, jogging, aerobics, weight training, or do any physical activity that catches your fancy. Electronic muscle stimulation is sedentary, and promotes laziness. With the exercises for cellulite, you can get real results.
Marketing gurus have found another way to tweak the electronic muscle stimulation as another way of eliminating cellulite. This was done for different products so many times, it’s not surprising. A perfectly viable machine for other treatment approved by the FDA, electronic muscle stimulation can not be actively marketed as a tool for removing cellulite. This is very irresponsible, and should not be tolerated. To recall, the FDA banned the marketing of electronic muscle stimulation devices for carving and sculpting the body. This prohibition on the FDA should be sufficient to clients interested in the treatment of electronic muscle stimulation for cellulite on their toes. Undergo and pay electronic muscle stimulation treatments would be unfair to the customer because they will not get the promised results.
