Emsella is a new and innovative treatment that uses electromagnetic technology to help improve bladder control for men and women of all ages. It’s a non-invasive treatment that doesn’t require any surgery or anesthesia. Because just like it is crucial we maintain muscle strength throughout our body as we age, it is also essential to keep the pelvic floor muscles strong. The pelvic floor muscles support the bladder and help keep it in check so that urine doesn’t leak at the worst possible moment.
This blog post will discuss what Emsella is and how it works!

How Does Emsella Work?
Emsella is a wonderful new option for patients who want to improve their pelvic floor health. The therapy also helps women improve sexual function without surgery. In addition, it is an excellent option for patients who have tried Kegel exercises but haven’t seen the results for which they were hoping.
But, the confidence boost is possibly the most significant improvement to the lives of the people who choose Emsella. Think about it:
- How much of your life do you spend worrying about leaks?
- How many hours have you spent stressing about what you might do that will cause a leak?
- How much money have you spent on bladder control undergarments?
Won’t it be nice to put these worries to bed? Isn’t it time to try something new?
The Best Seat in the House
The Emsella Chair is exactly what it sounds like: a flat chair. Patients sit in the chair, fully clothed, and the treatment begins. The treatment itself is pain-free and takes about 30 minutes. And because it’s non-invasive, there’s no need for any recovery time. You can go about your day as usual after the treatment.
The Emsella Chair delivers high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy (HIFEM) to stimulate the pelvic floor muscles. This stimulation causes the muscles to contract and relax. The contraction and relaxation of the muscles help to improve muscle tone and strength. Emsella can also help to enhance sexual function because it tightens the vaginal walls.
The Emsella contractions are deeper and more focused than anything you could do on your own, and because of that, in just a few short sessions, you’ll start to see results.
Your life is about to change for the better!
What is Electromagnetic Energy?
Electromagnetic energy is a type of energy that travels through the air and is used to power things like cell phones, computers, and TVs.  This energy is also used in medical treatments like Emsella. The Emsella technology has been proven to be a safe and effective (and FDA-cleared!) treatment for incontinence and pelvic floor weakness. 
When electromagnetic energy passes through the body, it produces a magnetic field. This magnetic field causes the pelvic floor muscles to ‘supramaximallys’ contract. (That’s a good thing.) These contractions help improve your strength, just like a barbell for your pelvic floor. And when your pelvic floor is strong, you’ll be able to pick up that heavy barbell without fear of a leak at the gym!
The Emsella Chair uses this electromagnetic energy to stimulate the pelvic floor muscles, including the deep muscles that are impossible to reach on your own; this provides a much more complete and effective workout for your pelvic floor. Plus, the treatments can be done while you are fully clothed, and all that’s required of you is that you sit down.
One of the great things about Emsella is that it’s a quick and easy treatment. Essssssssach session lasts about 30 minutes, and you can have up to six sessions per week. There’s no downtime so you can go about your normal activities after each session.
So check your email, watch your favorite show, and before you know it, the treatment is done! You can easily schedule an Emsella session on your lunch break.
What’s the Best Way to Treat Urinary Incontinence?
If you have urinary incontinence, you know how frustrating and embarrassing it can be. You may feel like you can’t do the things you love or that you have to limit your activities. But you are not alone. Between 4-8% of the entire human population suffers from urinary incontinence (UI).  Who knows which celebrities and foreign dignitaries might be counted among that number?
Patients who suffer from UI may experience bladder leaks when they:
- Exercise or Jump
- Lift Something Heavy
But you don’t have to live this way! Emsella can help improve your bladder control so you can live without worrying about leaks.
What is the Pelvic Floor?
A pelvic floor is a group of muscles and tissues that support the bladder, uterus, and rectum. These muscles and tissues form a bowl-shaped structure at the bottom of the pelvis.  The pelvic floor muscles help to control urination and bowel movements. Without this control, a person may experience incontinence or leakage of urine, or decreased sexual function.
Patients may experience weakened pelvic floors because of the following:
Pregnancy and Childbirth
After pregnancy, and especially after vaginal childbirth, the pelvic floor muscles may become stretched out and weak; this can lead to incontinence or the feeling that you need to go to the bathroom more often than usual.
Overweight or Obese
When patients are overweight, the added pressure on the pelvic floor can also cause these muscles to weaken.
Chronic coughing can put a lot of strain on the pelvic floor muscles, causing them to weaken with repeated stress over time.
As the body ages, the pelvic floor muscles can become weaker and less able to support the bladder because of decreased muscle tone and elasticity.
After a hysterectomy, the pelvic floor muscles may also become weak due to the loss of support from the uterus.
Parkinson’s Disease or Multiple Sclerosis
With medical conditions that affect the nervous system, patients may also experience weakened pelvic floor muscles. 
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, don’t hesitate to contact Dr. Mylissa’s Medical Boutique for help! We can discuss Emsella and any other skin, face, or body concerns Dr. Mylissa can help address. Call (561) 330-9944 or fill out this form to get started!
Emsella vs. Kegels
One main thing many women have probably tried to do on their own to improve their pelvic floor health is Kegel exercises. These exercises are one of the most popular ways to strengthen your pelvic floor on your own, but these contractions only go so deep.
Paging Dr. Kegel
Did you know that the name for these exercises comes from Dr. Arnold Kegel, the first person to write about the pelvic floor muscle?  Dr. Kegel knew many of his patients could benefit from understanding how to strengthen this vital muscle.
Kegel exercises are great but only work the muscles closest to the surface. Emsella works all of the pelvic floor muscles, even deep down, that you may not be able to reach with Kegels. In fact, even though we call the Emsella Chair the “Kegal throne,” because of HIFEM’s ability to create thousands of rapid, complete muscle contractions, your progress during a single session would be practically impossible to achieve by performing traditional Kegal exercises on your own!
What Does Emsella Feel Like?
Most patients report feeling a tingling sensation during the treatment. Some patients feel like they need to go to the bathroom, but this is just a sensation, not an actual need. The treatments are completely painless and have no side effects.
What Are the Results of Emsella?
The results of Emsella can be seen in as little as one treatment, but most patients need a series of treatments to see the full effect. The number of treatments you need will depend on the severity of your incontinence and your goals for treatment.
It is important to understand that results may vary from person to person. Some patients may need additional treatments to maintain their results, while others may only need occasional “touch-up” treatments. No matter what, the team at Dr. Mylissa’s Medical Boutique will work with you to create a treatment plan that meets your individual needs.
If you’re struggling with incontinence or other pelvic floor problems, Emsella may be a promising treatment option. Call Dr. Mylissa’s Medical Boutique at (561) 330-9944.
