Incontinence is something many women of all ages and backgrounds experience, yet many feel embarrassed to discuss it. Pregnancy and aging are two of the leading causes of incontinence, so it is far from uncommon. We want you to know first that you are not alone and that there is a solution! With the revolutionary Emsella treatment, you can experience a completely non-invasive, low-risk, no downtime, fully clothed treatment that’s as easy as sitting down. The Emsella chair offers a way to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles and improve incontinence symptoms during a few short office visits.
At Skin Canvas Aesthetics in Irvine, CA, we pride ourselves in offering innovative solutions with highly skilled professionals as well as a beautiful and comfortable environment. Many of our patients feel vibrant and energetic, and we want to help their body function in a way that matches their outlook. We would be thrilled to walk you through the entire Emsella process and help you achieve outstanding results.
The pelvic floor muscles are responsible for stabilizing your bladder; when they become weak, incontinence can occur, which is the inability to withhold urine effectively. This can be in the form of leaking urine during actions like sneezing, coughing, or exercising, which is referred to as stress incontinence. It can also present itself as a frequent and urgent need to urinate, which is called urge incontinence. Weak pelvic floor muscles resulting in incontinence can be caused by pregnancy and childbirth, aging or weight gain, or even chronic coughing.
The Emsella technology utilizes electromagnetic energy in the form of HIFEM (High Intensity Electromagnetic Therapy) to retrain and strengthen the muscles in the pelvic floor. The HIFEM stimulates the pelvic floor muscles causing them to contract thousands of times during a single session. These contractions are like a workout for the pelvic floor muscles, which enables them to stabilize the pelvic area providing support for your bladder and thus improving incontinence and other concerns caused by a weak pelvic floor. The HIFEM is delivered via the seat of the Emsella chair and can be used fully clothed in a comfortable, seated position.
Struggling with incontinence can be a constant discomfort and hassle. With Emsella treatments, you can stop worrying about sneezing and coughing, start adding in new exercise routines and even take pads off of your shopping list. With Emsella, you could enjoy:
The muscles of the pelvic floor are also vital for supporting pelvic organs and contributing to sexual function in both men and women.
The pelvic floor consists of several muscle layers, including a superficial layer responsible for clitoral and penile engorgement during sexual arousal. These muscles can be voluntarily contracted to enhance sexual arousal, and they contract rhythmically during orgasm.
Deeper pelvic floor muscles are responsible for vaginal sensation during intercourse and can affect the sexual experience of male partners as well. Stronger and firmer pelvic floor muscles can increase vaginal sensation and improve the ability to achieve orgasm.
Because the Emsella treatment is completely non-invasive and simple, almost any woman looking to reduce incontinence and strengthen pelvic floor muscles is a great candidate. Whether you need to address stress incontinence or urge incontinence, Emsella might be the solution for you. Great candidates are those wanting to improve:
At your consultation for Emsella Irvine health & wellness provider, nurse Devina, will discuss your medical history and talk about whether this treatment is the best fit for your particular concerns. Emsella treatments are typically performed twice a week for a few weeks, and we will go over a detailed session plan. There is virtually no preparation involved with the procedure, but our office will give you information on what to expect for the appointment and afterward.
During the procedure, you will be fully clothed and seated for about 30 minutes on the Emsella chair. The treatment feels like mild tingling as the pelvic floor activates, and most patients read or just relax throughout the procedure. After the session, you can go about your day with no downtime and no recovery period.
Typically, Emsella treatments are most effective with a course of 6 sessions, twice a week, for three weeks. Many Irvine Emsella patients experience results after just 1-2 treatments, but full results can be expected after all sessions are completed and beyond. The effects of Emsella last about 4-12 months, and with maintenance treatments every 3-6 months, along with at-home pelvic floor exercises, you can get the most out of your results.
We understand that health, aesthetics, and quality of life are often interconnected, and our goal is to get to know every patient and their specific situation and needs. Founded by Devina Pacis, RN, with a passion for excellence and care, the entire team at Skin Canvas Aesthetics is excited to help you take the first step toward a new kind of wellness.
