Discover the Emsella Chair Treatment

 

HOW EMSELLA WORKS

Experience the revolutionary Emsella Chair treatment for Stress Urinary Incontinence in Calgary—an external therapy that requires only sitting on a chair, fully clothed.

Using High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology, the Emsella Chair employs a powerful 2.5 Tesla magnet (MRI strength) to stimulate pelvic floor muscles.

Through non-invasive electromagnetic energy, it triggers high-frequency contractions, similar to Kegel exercises, (but much more powerful!) while targeting internal muscle groups beyond voluntary control.

This method effectively penetrates and stimulates the entire pelvic floor area, providing thousands of intense contractions (Approximately 11,000 in a single session), surpassing what’s achievable through individual efforts. These contractions aid in muscle strengthening and re-education.

HOW DOES EMSELLA FEEL?

The treatment is comfortably painless, causing only a unique, slightly strange sensation of contractions in the pelvic floor area. Notably, it’s also highly beneficial for men dealing with urinary incontinence.

STATISTICS & PEER REVIEWED STUDIES

  • Nearly 75% of patients reported significantly reduced urinary leakage or achieved complete dryness, sustaining these results six months post-treatment.
  • The majority witnessed a drastic reduction in pad usage or ceased it altogether.
  • At 1 year post treatments, 86% of patients reported less urine leakage and frequency
  • 34% of participants in the studies reported that urine urgency symptoms were reduced considerably
  • Even for women with pelvic organ prolapse and previous urinary incontinence surgeries, there was a significant improvement in filling, voiding, and incontinence domains regardless of the severity of prolapse
  • Emsella can also help with intimate health concerns!

TREATMENT LENGTH AND OVERVIEW

Duration: 30 minutes per session

Clients are advised to wear comfortable clothing and not to wear any jewelry below their neck for the treatment.

How Long Do Results Last?

If muscles are not engaged on a regular basis, the muscle tissue will continue to slowly weaken, just like with any other area of the body. Muscles also need to be maintained otherwise they will slowly lose strength.

Touch up treatments may be required for some clients who are post-menopausal or had more severe stress incontinence. The frequency of touch-up treatments will depend on many factors, such as age, genetics, and lifestyle. On average for mild to moderate Stress Urinary Incontinence clients, 1-2 touch-up sessions per year may be required.

Revive Laser offers a 3 in 1 Treatment Package for Moderate Urinary Incontinence, involving internal treatments which strengthen and thicken the vaginal canal.

TYPES OF INCONTINENCE

STRESS INCONTINENCE

When some urine leaks if you jump, cough, or sneeze, you may have stress incontinence. Anything that increases abdominal pressure can also put pressure on the bladder.
Many experts think that women who’ve given birth vaginally are more likely to deal with stress incontinence. This is because childbirth can stretch and possibly harm the muscles and nerves in the pelvic floor. Basically, if the baby is bigger, labor takes longer, the mom is older, or there have been more births, the chances of experiencing incontinence will go up. This type of incontinence typically responds best to the laser treatments.

OVER ACTIVE BLADDER OR URGE INCONTINENCE 

If you find yourself really needing to pee even when your bladder isn’t full, it might be due to overactive bladder, also known as urge incontinence. This can happen to both men and women and involves a sudden and intense urge to pee, often leading to unintentional leakage before you make it to a bathroom. Even if you manage to avoid any accidents, the constant urgency and frequent bathroom trips can mess with your work and social life. This urgency kicks in when the bladder muscle (called the detrusor) starts contracting and sends out signals that it’s time to pee, even if your bladder isn’t packed to the brim. This is more common in post-menopausal or older women. This type of issue is more difficult to treat and is less likely to respond to laser treatments, although some clients do still see an improvement.

MIXED INCONTINENCE

If you have symptoms of stress incontinence as well as overactive bladder then this is typically mixed incontinence. Most women with incontinence have both stress and urge symptoms which is more challenging and may be less likely to respond as well to the different options for treatment.
