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, Micro Current Therapy is quite different to TENS. Both MCT and TENS are Electrotherapy devices, however they use different levels of current and may provide different kinds of relief depending on each person’s needs. Painmaster operates on one frequency only at all times and the current cannot be felt by the user.
Painmaster MCT for Women uses the same technology as regular Painmaster and can be used just like regular Painmaster for the same conditions. Painmaster for Women has been re-engineered for more discreet and feminine use with changes to patches, electrodes and battery indicator light (now light green for use under sheer clothing).
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.
We suggest that the user wear the unit for no longer than 3-5 days and then remove it to avoid irritation to the skin from the adhesive. If there are no signs of irritation, it can be reapplied for additional 3-5 days or until irritation appears. Also, as part of the patch, a small red indicator light is attached. When this light goes out the patch is no longer effective.
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.
Yes, Painmaster is a TGA listed Class II medical device, ARTG ID 220278. Medsafe (New Zealand) registration 160908-WAND-6MOEYJ.
