Emsella Kegel Chair
A breakthrough for incontinence and sexual health and urinary incontinence
What is Emsella?
According to scientific research1, over 200 million people are affected by incontinence world wide. BTL’s Emsella is a Health Canada approved non-invasive, electromagnetic stimulation of the pelvic floor musculature to treat urinary incontinence and sexual confidence. Emsella serves to engage, rehabilitate and strengthen weak pelvic muscles, and restore neuromuscular bladder control. It’s a long awaited medical breakthrough for effectively addressing female and male urinary incontinence and sexual wellbeing. Captivating is proud to offer our all patients, of all ages the treatments and tools to take back control of their confidence and intimate health.
How does Emsella work?
BTL Emsella uses electromagnetic stimulation to effectively engage the pelvic floor muscles, generating thousands of supra-maximal contractions in a single treatment session while remaining fully clothed. The muscle stimulation serves to involve the entire pelvic floor, leading to effective recruitment and therefore outstanding improvement in pelvic floor and bladder health, and ultimately quality of life.
The treatment is described as “comfortable”, and is fully customizable to your level of comfort, and different treatment regimens are available to target specific concerns. Scientific research shows that 95% of treated patients have reported a significant improvement in the quality of their life1.
Am I a candidate? Take this short questionnaire:
- Do you leak urine when you cough, sneeze or engage in sports and physical activities
- Do you need to go the bathroom often?
- Do you wake up multiple times a night to go to the bathroom?
- Have you refrained from certain pleasurable physical activities, or intimacy out of fear of insecurity and lack of confidence?
Emsella is a non-invasive, no-downtime procedure that improves:
- All types of urinary incontinence by up to 65%.
- Improved nocturia (getting up at night to urinate).
- Bladder function and pelvic muscle control without ineffective and often time-consuming exercises.
- Patients reported a significant pad use reduction2. This provided not only physical and psychological relief, but also financial relief.
- Increased blood flow and sensitivity leading to improved sexual function, sexual desire and sexual pleasure.
- Strengthening of the pelvic floor muscles leading to decrease in leaking and overall increase in sexual function.
Process & Treatment
The number of sessions depends on our treatment concerns, personal goals and the use of combination therapies to achieve these goals. Typically 6-8 sessions over 3-4 weeks are indicated, Most patients will notice a difference after the first treatment. The exact treatment schedule will be determined during your initial consultation.
In males and females with hormonal related changes, we recommend considering combination therapies for exceptional results. Treatments aimed at genital wellness and sexual health include BHRT (Bio-identical Hormone replacement therapy) and Sexual wellbeing shots ( PRP injection) and in our female patients Votiva-Plus90.
At Captivating Aesthetics we recommend a consultation with one of our team experts, although this is not a prerequisite for treatment. The consultation consist of a medical history and review of all previous special investigations. You will have the chance to discuss your specific symptoms, your treatment concerns, your treatment goals and your fears and questions in regards to the actual treatment itself. At the consultation, best combination therapy for your specific case will be established, and a customized treatment plan, along with expected maintenance will then be formulated.
Relevant medical questionnaires will be completed at each visit to monitory progress.
In males and females with less complex medical concerns, such as seeking improved sexual function and sensitivity, we do not specifically require a full consultation, and a concise complimentary consultation can be done on the day of treatment.
The actual treatment duration is 28 minutes. Patients are required to empty their bladders before treatment. A pair of disposable shorts will be included in your treatment package. Be sure to bring this with you to every treatment. Additional pairs will be available for purchase at the office.
A trained staff member will enter the room once you have changed into your disposable shorts. They will ensure you are correctly positioned on the chair in effort to maximize the energy being delivered, and to provide consistent results.
Although the treatment is completely pain free, you may expect to feel slight tingling and vibration in your pelvic floor muscles, which will turn into full contractions. The process is completely comfortable and tolerable, and if you feel the need, the treatment can be paused and one of our helpful team members will customize our treatment based on your experience.
There is no recovery period or downtime. It is a quick and effective treatment that enables you to add it into your day and returning to life as normal after the procedure.
Captivating offers Health Canada approved at home maintenance devices that can be ordered through our clinic.
As each individual has very specific goals and needs, every treatment plan differs. This will be thoroughly discussed during your consultation. Single treatment pricing is $300. Membership and Combination Package pricing is available. Best results are seen with multiple and combination treatments. Please speak to our team about insurance coverage and tax benefits.
