Manicare® NOVA FIT™ Frequently Asked Questions
How does EMS work?
Electronic Muscle Stimulation technology stimulates facial muscles through gentle contractions creating a mini work out for the face; to improve tone, firmness and support skin rejuvenation for a healthy glow.
Trouble shooting: Why can I not feel the pulses?
There are 2 main reasons you may not be able to feel the pulses:
- The Manicare® NOVA FIT™ may not be switched onto EMS Fitness mode. Ensure the indicators are highlighted in red.
- There isn’t enough moisture on your skin. Apply a moisture rich lotion, serum or sheet mask to skin prior to use.
Can I use the Manicare® NOVA FIT™ with a face mask?
Yes – it is recommended that you use a mask with high moisture content, such as a sheet mask. Clay masks that dry into the skin will not have the same effect.
I feel strange shocks on my skin, is this normal?
Yes – this means the Manicare® NOVA FIT™ is on EMS Fitness mode. The electric-like tingling sensation stimulates the muscles in the skin.

How to choose the right product to use with the Manicare® NOVA FIT™?
- When using the Manicare® NOVA FIT™ without the EMS function, you can use any product alongside it. Whether that be oil-based or water-based. It could be a moisturiser, serum, mask, cream or any other product. Manicare® NOVA FIT™ will assist in circulation and absorption of the product into your skin.
- When using the Manicare® NOVA FIT™ with the Electronic Muscle Stimulation (EMS) function, it is best practise to use a water-based product. Water-based or Aqua-based products are better conductors, and so will interact with the Manicare® NOVA FIT™ and provide great electronic muscle stimulation.
To find out whether your product is water-based, you will need to look at the ingredient listing. This is located on either the back of the product or the packaging/carton.
Be sure that Water/Aqua is the first ingredient listed. This is the key indicator that your product is in fact, water-based.
