EMSELLA is an advanced, noninvasive treatment that can effectively treat urinary incontinence by strengthening the pelvic floor muscles.
Stress urinary incontinence affects many of us after a certain age—it’s a normal part of life! Many who suffer from this frustrating problem also experience strong urges, which can be equally difficult to manage. But as common as these problems are, you do not have to live with them. Here’s how treatment with Emsella can help.
The pelvic floor is the bowl shaped group of muscles in the pelvis that supports the pelvic organs, including the bladder. The pelvic floor muscles can weaken over time, due to trauma, or with childbirth, leading to leakage of urine in response to pressure on the bladder. This leakage is known as stress urinary incontinence.
There are two kinds of urinary incontinence, both of which can compromise your quality of life:
And for many of our patients, there is a third kind of incontinence: a combination of both stress and urge incontinence. Emsella treatments help with stress, urge, and mixed incontinence.
Emsella is an FDA-cleared, non-invasive treatment for urinary incontinence that utilizes high intensity focused electromagnetic stimulation (HIFEM) to strengthen the pelvic floor. Magnetic stimulation has been shown to improve muscle function, and it works by stimulating the muscle to contract deeply and repeatedly. This is the same technology used in Emsculpt. But while Emsculpt strengthens your abdomen or glutes, Emsella strengthens your pelvic floor, simulating the effects of thousands of Kegel exercises.
Emsella treatments are non-invasive and have no downtime. Each treatment session lasts for 28 minutes, and we typically recommend a series of 6 treatments performed over the course of 3 weeks for best results.
When you visit our office, you will be seated fully clothed on the Emsella chair. Positioning on the Emsella chair is very important in order to effectively target the pelvic floor muscles, so the staff at PureLee Redefined will assist you with proper positioning during the treatment sessions.
A strong pelvic floor, particularly when combined with a strong core, has benefits above and beyond improving urinary incontinence. Our unique Core to Floor approach to strengthening the entire lower abdomen helps to enhance your athletic performance, quality of life, and sexual health. We will discuss your options for combining Emsella with abdominal and gluteal muscle strengthening when we meet with you about your Emsella treatment in your initial appointment.
You are likely a good candidate for Emsella if you struggle with mild urinary incontinence and/or urgency, whether or not you have already tried other solutions.
You may have heard of laser treatments, such as MonaLisa Touch, FemiLift, or FemTouch for tightening the vaginal area and improving stress incontinence. Here are the reasons why we prefer Emsella, which uses electromagnetic waves instead of lasers:
