Weak pelvic floor can cause more troubles than you would think! It affects intimate health, can cause incontinence with leaks and also psychological problems. Don’t underestimate its influence on your quality of life. The good news is that there is a solution to improve overall quality of life - it is called Emsella. 

What is Emsella?

Emsella is a US-FDA approved treatment solution that improves weak pelvic floor muscles, reduces urinary incontinence and improves female intimate health via a non-invasive, and no downtime option. The device utilizes High Intensity Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology, and is safe for both men and women.

Urinary Incontinence

What is urinary incontinence?
Urinary incontinence is when urine is passed unintentionally. The pelvic floor muscles hold these organs in place - the bladder, rectum and womb. Due to aging, heavy lifting or after childbirth and the menopause, the muscles weaken resulting in involuntary urine loss. As the muscles are unable to hold up these organs, and can relax during inconvenient times, leading to embarrassing leaks.

There are several types of urinary incontinence, including:

  • Stress incontinence – the most common type of incontinence when urine leaks out when the bladder is under pressure e.g. coughing or laughing
  • Urge incontinence – urine leaks when there is an urge to pee, or leakage after peeing.
  • Overflow incontinence (chronic urinary retention) – frequent leakage occurs due to inability to fully empty the bladder.
  • Total incontinence – bladder is unable to store urine causing constant peeing and leaking.

It is possible to have a mixture of both stress and urge urinary incontinence.

What the treatments for urinary incontinence?
Urinary incontinence can be reduced with Kegel exercises by regularly contracting and relaxing the pelvic floor muscles. It can be an effective method but it can be difficult to identify the correct muscles and at times, it may not work due to the weakened muscle strength. There are also certain risks when done incorrectly and it could lead to further weakening of the pelvic floor muscles. Emsella is a good alternative that surpasses the amount of muscle contractions achieved with Kegel exercises.

How does Emsella work?

Emsella is a US-FDA approved device based on HIFEM (High Intensity Electromagnetic) technology. In one sitting, Emsella induces over 11,000 of supra-maximal pelvic floor muscle contractions, essential in strengthening pelvic floor muscles especially for those who are incontinent. The electromagnetic wave triggers muscular contractions just like ‘working out’ the muscles like Kegels do, but at a higher speed and intensity with less effort.

The HIFEM technology creates a magnetic field around the pelvic floor, triggering the contractions that give the muscles an intense workout. Muscles are strengthened and tighter with each session. Emsella targets the muscle without conscious effort on your end - this is known as the supramaximal level of contraction, delivering over 11,000 Kegel muscle contractions in 1 session. This treatment increases the strength of the pelvic floor muscles in order to help prevent leaks. 

Supramaximal Contractions With Emsella

With Emsella, contractions with higher intensity than MVC are known as supramaximal. The HIFEM technology creates supramaximal pelvic floor muscle contractions and hold them for a couple of seconds. The key to the effectiveness of Emsella's HIFEM technology is in the gradually increasing intensity of the focused electromagnetic fields and frequency of pulses. Each session induces over 11,000 supramaximal contractions on the pelvic floor muscles. This is essential for patients with urinary incontinence who need to strengthen pelvic floor muscles but are unable to achieve this much contractions via Kegel exercises.

Can Emsella be combined with other body treatments?

Emsella can be combined with Exilis Femme for an improved feminine health.

It can also be combined with Emsculpt Neo for a core to floor therapy, to address the entire core which can improve stamina, muscle strength and incontinence.

How does the treatment feel like and is there downtime?

Patients will be fully clothed during the treatment, seated on the Emsella chair in a relaxed and comfortable environment. Patients may experience tingling and pelvic floor muscle contractions during the procedure. There is no downtime, you may resume daily activities immediately after the treatment.

Who is a suitable candidate?

Emsella is suitable for both women and men of all ages seeking to improve urinary incontinence, strengthen pelvic floor muscles and for women - improve intimate wellness. 

However, Emsella is not for women who are pregnant, people with a pacemaker, metal plates - such as hip replacements or a copper coil or IUD. Emsella is also not for conditions such as pelvic organ prolapse. 

How many sessions are needed?

We recommend twice a week for the first 3 weeks. Maintenance sessions to be done once every 1-2 weeks.

When will I see results?

There will be an improvement after 1 session and results will continue to improve over the next few weeks, and results vary within individuals. Clinical studies show that majority of patients are able to maintain results 6 months after treatment.
