Let Emsella™ Do Your Kegel Exercises for You

Dr. Arnold Kegel first introduced his now-famous exercises back in 1948, and ever since, they’ve remained the gold standard in pelvic floor rehabilitation — that is until modern science provided alternatives. 

Now, women don’t have to count and squeeze their way to a stronger and healthier pelvic floor — they have technology that does the work for them. At Flushing Medical Spa, we proudly offer the industry’s best and most advanced pelvic floor rehabilitation system: Emsella™.

Here’s everything you should know about this revolutionary treatment. 

Getting to know Emsella

Emsella is an FDA-approved, noninvasive treatment for pelvic floor issues due to vaginal atrophy. 

During an Emsella treatment, we use high-intensity focused electromagnetic stimulation (HIFEM) to rebuild your pelvic floor muscles from the inside out. The electromagnetic stimulation targets specific muscles, causing them to contract deeply and repeatedly. 

Simply put, an Emsella can replace thousands of Kegels. 

We’re not saying Kegels don’t have their place, but even if you’re diligent and perform them perfectly, you’ll still have difficulty targeting the deepest portions of your pelvic floor muscles. 

The ideal candidate

We recommend Emsella for anyone struggling with pelvic floor challenges, such as urinary incontinence. Urinary incontinence is a condition that develops when weak pelvic floor muscles make it difficult (or impossible) to keep urine from leaking. Weakened pelvic floor muscles can cause other problems, including sexual dysfunction. 

Your pelvic muscles weaken due to the following:

  • Pregnancy and childbirth
  • Straining too hard when going to the bathroom
  • Previous pelvic surgery
  • Weight challenges
  • The natural aging process
  • Trauma

Fortunately, Emsella can repair and rehabilitate your muscles and help them function properly. 

What to expect from your treatments

Emsella doesn’t stop at total restoration of your pelvic floor — it also provides fast, noninvasive, and virtually painless treatments. 

When you arrive, you sit on the Emsella machine, fully clothed and comfortable. When we turn on the device, the electromagnetic stimulation targets your pelvic floor, triggering muscle contractions deep within your body while you relax. 

Your treatment typically lasts around 30 minutes. You shouldn't feel any pain besides some tingling or buzzing sensations. 

Since it’s noninvasive, you can return to your routine immediately after treatment. For the best results, we usually recommend a series of treatments. Many of our patients benefit from six sessions every three weeks.  

Though Emsella can replace Kegels, that doesn’t mean you should stop doing them. In fact, we encourage you to continue your Kegel routines and focus on strengthening your gluteal and abdominal muscles as well.
