Do you experience a sudden, strong need to urinate that is not the result of a urinary tract infection? Likewise, do you ever find yourself leaking a little urine when you laugh, cough, sneeze, or exercise? If yes, you are likely struggling with urinary incontinence. Urinary incontinence, or the uncontrolled trickle of urine, is not at all unusual. It happens when the pelvic muscles are weak and not able to control your bladder.
Urinary incontinence affects both men and women of all ages, but it is more common in women mostly because of hormonal changes during pregnancy and menopause. These hormonal changes can cause the pelvic floor muscles to become weak. EMSELLA can help you recover urine control and boost the quality of your life without pain, surgery, or medications.
EMSELLA® is the first treatment of its kind and is FDA-approved to cure urinary incontinence in both men and women. The treatment uses a vibrating chair that releases high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy to restore and strengthen your pelvic floor. The treatment is painless, non-surgical, and requires no recovery time.
During EMSELLA treatment, you stay fully clothed. You sit restfully on the EMSELLA chair as the electromagnetic energy contracts your pelvic muscles more than 11,000 times in 30 minutes. The success of the treatment comes from the intense electromagnetic energy that targets feeble muscles in the pelvic floor.
The result is increased growth of muscle cells to make the pelvic floor stronger and allow for better bladder control. Typical Kegel exercises can bring good results with time. But 30 minutes on the EMSELLA chair is equal to doing more than 11,000 Kegels.
EMSELLA treatment may look too good to be true for people suffering from urinary incontinence. However, studies show that the treatment improves bladder control by 95 percent. Restored pelvic floors after EMSELLA treatment are raised, pulling the urinary bladder back in place. This helps patients regain bladder control and the confidence they had before urine leakage.
Normally, you have a series of six EMSELLA treatments for three weeks. That is a 30-minute treatment session two times a week for three weeks. Your specialist may then recommend more or fewer sessions depending on your situation and needs.
Although the results vary, many patients notice improvement after their first session, while it may take a few other sessions for other patients to see results. It all depends on how severe your situation is. You will see more improvements after every treatment.
The results of the first six treatments can last anywhere between nine to 12 months. In some cases, specialists may suggest touch-up treatments three or six months after the first EMSELLA session.
