Emsella® Q & A

What is urinary incontinence?

Urinary incontinence is common among adults, especially women. Symptoms of incontinence include leaking urine when you jump, cough, sneeze, or laugh. You may also experience extreme, sudden urges to urinate.

How does Emsella®® address urinary incontinence?

An FDA-cleared treatment, the Emsella® urinary incontinence chair applies electromagnetic technology and in-depth penetration to stimulate your pelvic floor muscles and restore muscle strength. During one Emsella® session, your pelvic floor muscles go through thousands of contractions. This re-educates them so they’re able to contract on their own and prevent the urine leakage associated with incontinence.

Emsella® effectively strengthens your pelvic muscles so you experience reduced urinary incontinence and overall better quality of life.

Why should I consider treatment with Emsella®?

Treatment with Emsella® can improve your quality of life — 95% of people who go through treatment with the technology report this improvement. Plus 75% of Emsella® patients say they reduce pad usage as a result of treatment.

Emsella® is more effective than Kegel exercises, and it’s noninvasive. You don’t need to schedule downtime following treatment. Emsella® is nonsurgical and nonpharmacological.

Who benefits from Emsella® treatments?

Patients of all ages can benefit from Emsella® treatment for urinary incontinence. Women with symptoms of urinary incontinence should consider the benefits. Potential patients include:

  • Weightlifters
  • Marathon runners
  • Perimenopausal or postmenopausal women
  • New moms

Talk to Dr. Kim about your urinary incontinence symptoms, and he’ll advise you on how Emsella® can help.

What happens during Emsella® sessions?

Your Emsella® treatment plan is tailored just for you. You remain clothed during the session and sit on the Emsella® chair. As the electromagnetic energy stimulates your pelvic muscles, you feel the contractions and a tingling sensation. Emsella® treatment is not painful.

How many Emsella® sessions will I need?

Dr. Kim develops an individualized plan to address your symptoms and urinary incontinence severity. You may need up to six 28-minute sessions in total. Usually, these are scheduled twice per week for three weeks total.

Results are evident after just a single session, but you see optimal improvements in urinary incontinence symptoms over the course of several weeks.

To reduce symptoms of urinary incontinence without medications, surgery or downtime, call the office of Jamie E. Kim, MD, FACOG or schedule an appointment using the online tool.
