Because Micro Current Therapy works at the cellular level using only micro-currents it works slowly. Patience is the key to getting great results. For some people the results are apparent in a few hours, for others a few days treatment initially may be required to establish if the therapy is effective.
Important: It’s important to understand not every pain treatment type works for everyone. A trial will establish whether Painmaster works for you. If you have continuing pain please consult your doctor immediately.
No. The micro current generated by the Painmaster MCT Patch is too low to be felt by the vast majority of people.
Micro Current Therapy is quite different to TENS. Whilst they are both Electrotherapy devices, they use very different levels of current to provide different kinds of relief. Painmaster Micro-Current therapy isn't simply a pain blocker. It may help to reduce inflammation caused by the underlying condition causing pain so it's ideal for longer term pain conditions and pain management, but not for short term relief. The current cannot be felt by the user.
No, each Painmaster pack contains one set of patches. If used carefully and on clean skin the patches generally last as long as the battery, however replacement patches are also available in packs of 2 sets (4 patches).
No, the units workable lifespan is the same as the battery. The battery is hard wired to ensure the current remains exactly as required. When the battery is exhausted you will need to purchase another Painmaster.
Yes, the plastic has a special coating on 1 side which helps to improve the life of the pads by allowing them to be removed and re-applied more often. Please read carefully which side to stick the pads on. Sticking the pads on other surfaces when not in use will reduce the pads life.

When this light goes out the patch is no longer effective.

The battery will last for up to 300 hours of total use. Battery life depends on individual usage of the product and the conductivity of the skin.
The patches can be applied daily over an extended period. The amount of times depends on the cleanliness of the skin as every person is different. Factors such as body hair and sweat may reduce the number of applications. Spare patches are available in packs of 2 sets (4 patches).
Attached to one of the patches is a small red light. As long as this light is illuminated the patch is working. Both patches must be in contact with the skin in order to transmit the therapeutic current. The battery can also be tested by gripping each electrode with your fingers as shown below to demonstrate if the unit is still working.
There is no specific evidence for or against using Micro Current Therapy over metal implants, however some users have reported pain or discomfort when doing so.
