Emsella™: A Revolutionary Non-Invasive Treatment for Urinary Incontinence

Story by Courtney Burwell

Urinary incontinence is a common condition affecting both men and women, many women who have given birth, those experiencing menopause, and older adults. Traditional treatments include pelvic floor exercises, lifestyle changes, and in some cases, surgery. Dan Margolin, MD owner of Physician Aesthetic Specialists offers a newer, non-invasive option called Emsella™ that is proving to be an effective solution for many people.

What is Emsella™, how does it work and how can it help me with urinary incontinence?

Emsella™ is a breakthrough treatment for urinary incontinence that uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology. It is designed to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles, which play a crucial role in bladder control. The treatment involves sitting fully clothed on a specialized chair that emits electromagnetic waves to stimulate muscle contractions.

Emsella™ works by delivering HIFEM energy to the pelvic floor muscles. This energy induces 11,200 of supramaximal pelvic floor muscle contractions in a single 28 minute session, which are much more intense than voluntary contractions (such as those performed during Kegel exercises). These contractions lead to muscle strengthening and improved neuromuscular control.

Benefits of Emsella™
1. Non-Invasive: Unlike surgical treatments, Emsella™ is entirely non-invasive, involving no needles, incisions, or anesthesia.

2. Convenient: Each Emsella™ session lasts about 30 minutes, and patients remain fully clothed during the treatment. It requires no downtime, allowing individuals to resume their daily activities immediately.

3. Effective: Clinical studies have shown that Emsella can significantly reduce urinary incontinence symptoms, erectile dysfunction and improves other symptoms of sexual dysfunction. Many patients experience noticeable improvements after just one session.

The Emsella™ Treatment Process
1. Consultation: The process begins with a free consultation at our office. Both men and women struggling with urinary incontinence or sexual dysfunction are candidates for treatment.
2. Sessions: The typical course involves six sessions over a three-six week period. Each session lasts around 30 minutes.

3. Maintenance: Since the pelvis is a muscle, we typically recommend 1 maintenance session per quarter or 1-2 maintenance sessions per year to keep the muscle strength dependent on the individual.

Emsella™ is suitable for a wide range of individuals, particularly those experiencing:
– Stress incontinence (leakage during activities that increase abdominal pressure like sneezing, coughing, or exercising)
– Urge incontinence (a sudden, intense urge to urinate followed by involuntary leakage)
– Mixed incontinence (a combination of stress and urge incontinence)
It is especially beneficial for women who have weakened pelvic floor muscles due to childbirth, menopause, or aging. And for men who have undergone prostate surgery experiencing erectile dysfunction and incontinence, or aging.
During an Emsella™ session, you will sit comfortably on the Emsella™ chair. You might feel a tingling sensation and intense pelvic floor muscle contractions. The treatment is generally well-tolerated, and you can read, listen to music, or relax during the session.
Emsella™ offers a promising, non-invasive solution for those struggling with urinary incontinence.
By strengthening the pelvic floor muscles through high-intensity electromagnetic stimulation, Emsella™ can help reduce leakage and improve bladder control, enhancing the overall quality of life which also has studies improving ED & Sexual health for both men & women.
