Urinary incontinence means a person leaks urine by accident. While it can happen to anyone, urinary incontinence, also known as overactive bladder, is more common in older people, especially women. Bladder control issues can be embarrassing and cause people to avoid their normal activities. But incontinence can often be stopped or controlled.

Read on to learn everything that you need to know about Emsella as a treatment option for urinary incontinence.

What is Emsella?

A completely non-invasive way to treat urinary incontinence and sexual heath disorders. The unique technology will strengthen the weakened pelvic floor muscles and restore neuromuscular control of the bladder. A single Emsella session stimulates over 11,000 muscular contractions.

How does Emsella work?

Emsella is a unique form of pelvic muscle treatment. It utilizes High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology to stimulate the entire pelvic floor area and create deep and intense pelvic floor muscles contractions, helping to restore neuromuscular control. A single Emsella session brings thousands of supramaximal pelvic floor muscle contractions, which are the key in muscle re-training in incontinent patients. All this is done without any effort on your part and without getting undressed. Scientific research shows that 95% of treated patients have reported significant improvement in the quality of life.

How to prepare for your Emsella session?

No preparation needed.

What to expect during your Emsella session?

When you arrive, you will meet Dr. Ward and will be comfortably seated on the specially designed Emsella chair. The Emsella will deliver electromagnetic energy to your pelvic floor muscles, forcing them to contract. Not only is it a comfortable experience, but you will remain seated in an ergonomic chair, fully clothed, and at ease during your session. The unique technology will strengthen the weakened muscles and restore neuromuscular control of the bladder.

Can Emsella help men as well?

Incontinence can be a real issue for men of all ages and can have a serious effect on their daily lives. Incontinence in men typically presents as a small amount of dribbling during workouts or at the end of the day. Chronic cough and obesity can put pressure on the bladder and lead to stress incontinence. Some men suffer from urge incontinence – a need to urinate frequently or dribbling when the bladder is full and Emsella can help improve symptoms.

Does Emsella work for erectile dysfunction?

Emsella has recently been approved to treat erectile dysfunction. This is great news for men who are struggling with maintaining an erection and are looking for a discrete option to help deal with this issue. By targeting the pelvic floor muscles with High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology, Esmella stimulates the muscles, tightens the pelvic floor, and allows you to regain control to achieve and maintain an erection.

What is the difference between Emsella and other treatments?

Emsella is completely non-invasive. Other treatments such as the Viveve or MonaLisa are invasive procedures.

How long does an Emsella session last?

Generally, a complete treatment consists of six sessions, each of which takes about thirty minutes and are scheduled twice a week. Results depend on your condition, the number of sessions, and the area treated. Dr. Ward will provide you with complete information about the post-treatment care and results.

How long is the recovery, and are there any risks or side effects to Emsella?

There is no downtime for recovery with Emsella, and the treatment is virtually pain-free. Come in for your quick appointment, and then go about your day. Side effects in the treated area may include:

  • muscular pain
  • temporary muscle spasm
  • temporary joint or tendon pain
  • local erythema or skin redness

Can Emsella be combined with any other treatments to enhance results?

Yes. Emsella works even better when paired with the O-shot® treatment.
