What to Expect After Emsella Treatments

Leaking urine throughout the day is embarrassing, but it’s a problem many women deal with as they age. Menopause and childbirth both affect your pelvic floor muscles, making it harder to control urinary leakage and leading to incontinence.

If you're tired of struggling with urinary incontinence, some treatments can help, including the revolutionary Emsella™ treatments. Emsella is a noninvasive treatment that helps strengthen your pelvic floor for long-lasting urinary incontinence prevention.

At Flushing Medical Spa in Queens, New York, Dr. QiLi Li and her team offer treatments to help you look and feel your best, including Emsella. Dr. Li provides all the information you need before your treatments so you know what to expect after Emsella.

What is urinary incontinence?

Urinary incontinence is a problem that affects millions of men and women worldwide, but most don't admit to it or talk about it and choose to suffer in silence. Incontinence causes embarrassment, social anxiety, and affects your emotional well-being.

The true definition of urinary incontinence is the involuntary leakage of urine from your bladder. It's usually uncontrollable and happens at the most inopportune times.

Urinary incontinence can range from mild leaking when you cough or laugh to intense urges to urinate where you're unable to make it to the bathroom in time. Aging is one of the main culprits behind urinary incontinence, but other causes include:

  • Neurological problems
  • Childbirth
  • Menopause
  • Enlarged prostate
  • Prostate cancer
  • Urinary obstructions
  • Pregnancy

Incontinence can be temporary, caused by caffeine, alcohol, and certain medications. You can typically resolve this incontinence through lifestyle changes. Chronic urinary incontinence happens through aging and other issues with your genitourinary system.

Emsella for urinary incontinence

Emsella is a breakthrough, noninvasive treatment that helps women improve pelvic floor strength to reduce urinary incontinence. It improves urinary leakage and provides an option to increase overall confidence and emotional well-being.

The high-intensity electromagnetic stimulation Emsella provides quickly strengthens your pelvic floor muscles for better urinary control. It gives the strength of thousands of kegel exercises in a short session without downtime.

Added benefits to Emsella treatments are that it's not painful and doesn't require a great deal of time. After Emsella treatments, you can expect improved confidence, a more robust pelvic floor, and reduced leakage.

When home therapy and other treatments fail, or you're looking for a noninvasive mediation alternative, Emsella is an excellent option. It's a simple procedure that takes about a half hour per treatment. All you have to do is sit on the Emsella chair. You don't have to get undressed and can read a book during treatment.

What to expect after each treatment

One of the most significant aspects of Emsella is the recovery — there is none. It's a revolutionary, noninvasive option allowing you to return to your day without restrictions.

Although Emsella is an excellent option for urinary incontinence, you must still work to maintain your results. Dr. Li often recommends exercises to help with that. Kegels, abdominal strengthening, and gluteal fitness can all help keep your pelvic floor muscles strong.

There needs to be more than one treatment, though. For optimal results, Dr. Li recommends two weekly treatments for three weeks. Each treatment is the same; you can go about your day afterward without pain or restrictions.

How long does Emsella last?

After six treatments, you can expect better pelvic floor muscle control, less urinary leakage, and a boost in confidence. But how long does it last? The results of Emsella are long-term, but you have to put in a little work too.

Daily Kegel exercises are the best way to keep your pelvic floor muscles strong and working well. These exercises keep the Emsella results lasting throughout your lifetime.

Dr. Li also suggests follow-up Emsella treatments every so often to prevent urinary leakage from coming back, especially with age. Regular maintenance treatments and exercises allow you to keep your results like new.
