EMSELLA, a revolutionary non-invasive, no downtime procedure that takes all the work and time out of strengthening the pelvic floor muscles. The EMSELLA chair strengthens the pelvic floor muscles by focusing electromagnetic waves causing the muscles to contract and relax, exercising them in a similar way to Kegel exercises. Unlike Kegel exercises, EMSELLA does the work for you and exercises your pelvic floor muscles much more completely and intensely than you could do on your own. Each 28-minute session will provoke contractions equivalent to performing 11,200 Kegel exercises!

What is EMSELLA?
EMSELLA is a chair that uses high-intensity electromagnetic field to activate motor neurons in the pelvic floor. This is similar to an MRI. The technology is known as High Intensity Focused Electromagnetic Technology (HIFEM) and it causes deep pelvic floor muscles stimulation.
Who does EMSELLA work for?
The treatment is indicated for women with stress incontinence (leak with cough or movement), urge incontinence (leak after you cannot suppress the urge to urinate), or mixed incontinence. Stress incontinence is most commonly caused by vaginal childbirth and hormonal changes due to age. The stretching and increased laxity of the tissues causes the bladder to sag over the anterior wall of the vagina, which can interfere with the proper function of the bladder when it is full.
How effective is EMSELLA for incontinence?
In as few as 3 weeks, patients strongly agree their quality of life improved by 95%. Two-thirds of treated patients totally eliminated or decreased the use of pads for leakage and the results were maintained at a 6-month follow-up.
How does the treatment work?
EMSELLA is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment for stress or urge urinary incontinence. Patients sit comfortably in a chair in their regular clothes. The chair focuses on targeted tissue in the pelvis. Muscles are strengthened, restoring the support for the pelvic organs. The vaginal walls are tightened. Incontinence decreases. In addition, sexual satisfaction is increased.
Can Kegel exercises do the same thing as EMSELLA?
EMSELLA is powerful. In fact, during one short 28-minute treatment, EMSELLA will provoke contractions equivalent to performing 11,200 Kegel exercises!
Is EMSELLA painful?
The treatment is not painful. You can feel a sensation during the procedure. There is no downtime afterwards. You can come during lunch break, eat, read a book, and have a treatment!
How long does it take for EMSELLA to produce results?
There are some immediate results. The treatment protocol is 2 treatments per week for 3 weeks, for a total of 6 treatments.
Is EMSELLA covered by insurance?
The treatment is FDA-approved. We believe EMSELLA is an investment in you. Insurance does not cover the procedure. We have set up reasonable packages for our patients.
