What is EMSELLA treatment?
EMSELLA is a chair that stimulates the pelvic floor by encouraging thousands of supramaximal muscle contractions. These contractions are a workout for a weak pelvis floor and allow you to strengthen this area in a short time with no effort on your part. Patients simply sit on the chair without undressing.
EMSELLA uses High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology to stimulate pelvic muscles. This is particularly helpful for those suffering from incontinence issues related to a weak pelvic floor after childbirth or menopause.
In just 28 minutes of relaxing on the chair, your pelvic floor will contract 11,000 times. Patients report no discomfort and are free to relax, read, or watch TV during private treatment.
What are the benefits of EMSELLA treatment?
EMSELLA is an excellent alternative to uncomfortable urinary inconvenience pads or invasive surgery that requires downtime and carries its own set of risks.
The contractions retrain your body to help you regain control of your pelvic floor muscles and bladder. This enhanced strength leads to reduced urinary incontinence and improved sexual health without any downtime following treatment.
Who is a good candidate for EMSELLA?
EMSELLA treatment is helpful for both men and women. In addition to treating urinary incontinence, it can help improve orgasms, tighten vaginal walls for women, and treat erectile dysfunction in men.
EMSELLA is suitable for almost anyone experiencing pelvic floor or relevant sexual dysfunction as a result of normal aging, childbirth, during or after menopause, or following prostate surgery.
Perimenopausal, menopausal, and post-menopausal women may all benefit from EMSELLA if they are experiencing issues with their pelvic floor or vaginal wall.
EMSELLA is not suitable for people who are pregnant or have metal in their bodies (such as plates, pacemakers, copper IUDs, etc.).
How many EMSELLA treatments are needed?
Some patients may need up to six treatments in order to achieve optimal results. Strengthening the pelvic floor or vaginal walls requires building muscle, which takes time. It can take 9 – 12 months to see the full effects of EMSELLA treatment.
Most patients require multiple treatments to receive the full benefits. It's common to have a total of six sessions twice a week when you begin EMSELLA. But when you're done, your results can last 6– 12 months. After that, only maintenance treatments are needed.
Your final results will be unique to you and often depend on your age and the severity of your condition, such as the level of your urinary incontinence. That means the sooner you start EMESLLA treatments, the better.
In some cases, patients experience a temporary increase in incontinence symptoms after the first treatment.
