Emsella by Mirror Mirror Med Spa Orange Grove Rd Tucson AZ

Emsella is a revolutionary approach to pelvic floor strengthening, offering a non-surgical solution for urinary incontinence and related pelvic issues. Emsella strengthens the pelvic floor muscles, supporting the pelvic organs and improving bladder control. Patients report significant improvements in daily comfort and quality of life with a series of sessions.

What is Emsella? 

Emsella is an innovative treatment designed to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles, a key component in addressing urinary incontinence and improving pelvic health. Unlike traditional methods that require physical exercises or invasive procedures, Emsella uses electromagnetic energy to stimulate the pelvic floor muscles with thousands of contractions per session. This process, which is both non-invasive and requires no downtime, allows patients to remain fully clothed during treatment, offering a convenient and comfortable solution for both men and women. 

The technology behind Emsella is focused on re-educating and restoring the muscles’ strength and control, significantly improving daily life for those suffering from incontinence. Its simplicity and effectiveness make it a valuable option for enhancing intimate health and wellness without surgical intervention.

How Does Emsella Work?

The core of its operation lies in delivering high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy, which penetrates the pelvic region to induce supramaximal pelvic floor muscle contractions. These intense contractions occur rapidly, far exceeding what is achievable through voluntary exercises like Kegels.

The science behind Emsella’s effectiveness is grounded in its ability to stimulate the entire pelvic floor region uniformly, ensuring that all muscles are engaged and strengthened over time. This stimulation leads to a re-education of the muscle tissue, helping to restore the pelvic floor’s strength and functionality. The process not only aids in tightening these muscles but also improves neuromuscular control. As a result, patients experience a significant reduction in urinary incontinence symptoms and an overall improvement in the quality of life.

What sets Emsella apart is its non-invasive approach, allowing patients to undergo treatment without the need to undress or experience any discomfort. Each session lasts about 30 minutes, during which patients can sit comfortably on the Emsella chair, fully clothed, while the device does its work. The treatment plan typically includes multiple sessions over a few weeks, tailored to each individual’s needs.

Benefits of Emsella Treatment

The Emsella treatment offers several benefits for individuals experiencing urinary incontinence and seeking to improve pelvic floor strength:

  • Non-Invasive Approach: Emsella provides a significant advantage by being completely non-invasive. Patients can remain fully clothed during treatment, avoiding the discomfort and privacy concerns associated with traditional therapies.
  • Efficiency: A single Emsella session induces thousands of supramaximal pelvic floor muscle contractions, equivalent to performing many Kegel exercises. This efficiency in strengthening the pelvic floor is unmatched by voluntary exercises alone.
  • Improvement in Urinary Incontinence: Emsella has been shown to significantly reduce the symptoms of urinary incontinence, helping patients regain control over their bladder functions and reducing the inconvenience and embarrassment associated with incontinence.
  • Enhanced Sexual Function: By strengthening the pelvic floor muscles, Emsella can also contribute to improved sexual wellness and satisfaction for both men and women, enhancing intimacy and confidence.
  • No Downtime: The treatment allows patients to immediately return to their daily activities without any recovery period, making it a convenient option for those with busy schedules.
  • Accessibility: Emsella is suitable for a wide range of patients, including men and women of various ages who are looking to address urinary incontinence or simply improve pelvic floor health.
  • Quality of Life: By addressing pelvic floor weakness and associated symptoms, Emsella helps improve patients’ overall quality of life, allowing for more confidence and freedom in daily activities.

The Emsella Treatment Experience

When patients arrive for an Emsella session, they are greeted by a setup resembling a chair designed to target the pelvic floor muscles with electromagnetic energy. What makes this experience particularly distinctive is the need for more preparation. Patients can walk in, sit on the Emsella chair fully clothed, and relax as the device begins its work.

The session typically lasts about 30 minutes, during which the Emsella device emits high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy. This energy stimulates the pelvic floor muscles to contract at a supramaximal level, far beyond what traditional exercises can achieve. Despite the intensity of these contractions, the process is painless. Patients often describe feeling a tingling sensation or the muscles contracting but without discomfort. This makes the Emsella treatment not only effective but also a surprisingly comfortable experience.

One of the most appreciated aspects of the Emsella treatment experience is the ability to return to daily activities post-session immediately. There’s no downtime required, nor are there any specific aftercare instructions to follow. The recommended treatment plan usually consists of multiple sessions over a few weeks. The exact number of sessions varies depending on the individual’s needs and the severity of their symptoms. 

Results and Longevity

Patients typically start noticing improvements after their first few sessions, with the full benefits becoming more apparent upon completing the recommended treatment plan.

The longevity of Emsella’s results can vary from person to person, depending on several factors, including the initial severity of incontinence, age, and overall health. On average, the improvements can last for several months and, in some cases, even longer. Patients may be advised to undergo periodic maintenance sessions to maintain the benefits. These follow-up treatments can help sustain muscle strength and function over time, ensuring the lasting impact of the initial treatment series.

Additionally, incorporating lifestyle changes and pelvic floor exercises into one’s routine can prolong the results of Emsella treatment. Regularly engaging in targeted exercises can help maintain muscle strength and further support urinary continence and pelvic health.
