The first, second, and the fourth ones come in different grades, or magnetic strength levels. The third one comes with "natural skin color" adhesive so that they don't stand out on your neck, for example. And the larger one at the bottom is for use on back and legs, to work on larger areas with pain.

They are not reusable. Price is, for example, for the second one from the top (medium strength, I'd say), it's 1,260 yen for 24 of those "buttons," or 2,310 yen for 48. You can get them at almost any drugstores, and you can try buying a small pack first to see it they work on you.

They say they are good for stiff muscles - shoulders, arms, back, lower back, legs, etc.

They say that the magnetism from those little magnets work on the stiff muscles that is pressing on the blood vesels and blocking the blood flow (which further makes it easy for the stiffness/pain to accumulate) to loosen them up and to help the blood flow better.

They say you can wear them (you use at least something like six or so at once, three on each side - the trial pack has six in them) for two to three days. If you don't put them on immediately after shower when you are still sweating, or scrub too hard on your body when taking shower/bath, they should last that long.
