Urinary incontinence is a major problem that affects both men and women. It is estimated that about 20 million women suffer from urinary incontinence and 45% of women with urinary incontinence report decreased quality of life and loss of intimacy. So what exactly is urinary incontinence? As it says in the name, urinary incontinence is the involuntary leakage of urine when coughing, sneezing, or laughing making it a bit difficult to not run into the occasional accident. No fun, right?

Previously the only options that were available to treat urinary incontinence were kegel exercises, biofeedback training, physical therapy, or surgery. With technological advances, A New You Wellness now offers Emsella, a first-of-its-kind treatment for urinary continence. The treatment is patented with high intensity focused electromagnetic field (HIFEM) which is able to provide supramaximal contractions to the pelvic floor muscles, almost like a super Kegel exercise.

The pelvic floor muscles are a set of muscles in the pelvic floor that form a sling to support internal organs like the bladder, the vagina, and the rectum. One session of Emsella is able to deliver the equivalent of 12,000 focused Supra Kegel exercises in 30 minutes. With the strengthening of the pelvic floor comes many benefits: as per reported studies, there is a 95% satisfaction rate of patients using Emsella, and urinary incontinence decreases by 60% after six treatments. Other benefits include better sexual wellness and a stronger anal sphincter tone for better control of mild constipation.

More importantly, there are no side effects or downtime associated with the procedure and it is very private. The patient does not have to disrobe and just sits on the Emsella chair with their legs shoulder-width apart. It is absolutely painless and you may feel a slight tingling sensation in the perineum area. We usually recommend two 30-minute sessions per week for three weeks for a total of six sessions.

Some people may observe an improvement in urinary incontinence after a single session. However, the results will typically continue to improve over the next few weeks. Depending on the degree of urinary incontinence, the patient may need further treatments to better control the urinary incontinence or for maintenance. Although it has mostly been studied for women, Emsella treatment can also benefit men, especially men who had prostate surgery and are suffering from urinary incontinence.
