According to the British Association of Beauty Therapy and Cosmetology, faradic muscle toning is a form of electrical muscle stimulation that tightens and tones muscles. The treatment works by delivering a current into the muscles in order to stimulate nerve endings. This leads to muscle contraction.
Faradic muscle toning allows clients to exercise while lying down, according to the British Association of Beauty Therapy and Cosmetology. The treatment stimulates muscles in a way that simulates exercise. Faradic muscle toning can also be effective in treating one specific area of the body. This treatment is very popular with people who don't enjoy cardiovascular exercise but want the benefits of exercise.
The British Association of Beauty Therapy and Cosmetology states that faradic muscle toning involves pads, which are strapped to the treatment area. The current is then delivered to the muscles. The muscles contract, and an exercise-like effect is achieved. Many clients find the process to be comfortable. To achieve maximum results, the treatment needs to be performed regularly. The British Association of Beauty Therapy and Cosmetology suggests that regular exercise is a useful way to supplement the results of the treatment.
Individuals who see results using faradic muscle toning may also be interested in trying microcurrent muscle toning. According to the British Association of Beauty Therapy and Cosmetology, microcurrent muscle toning is a faster and more pleasurable muscle toning system.
