Do you leak when you cough, sneeze, or engage in sports activities? Do you feel the sudden urge to go the bathroom often? Have you refrained from intimate life in the last months out of fear of insecurity? If you answered yes, you could be suffering from urinary incontinence. There are three different types of urinary incontinence: stress, urge, and mixed incontinence. Stress incontinence occurs when there is exerted pressure on the bladder causing leakage such as coughing, laughing, sneezing, or exercising. Often, stress incontinence can occur after childbirth. Urge incontinence is the sudden and intense urge to urinate frequently. Mixed incontinence is a combination of both stress and urge incontinence.
Dr. Petropoulos and the Center for Classic Beauty now offers EmSella® as a non-invasive option for strengthening and restoring the pelvic floor muscles to improve incontinence and sexual wellness. This innovative treatment uses electromagnetic energy to cause deep pelvic floor muscle stimulation without downtime!
How Does EmSella® Work?
After a consultation with Dr. Petropoulos and our staff, you will be escorted to our treatment room to begin your first session. EmSella® is a pain free treatment, so there is no need for any local anesthetics or other pain relievers. Next, you will remove your shoes and jewelry, remain clothed (comfortable legging type clothing preferred) and have a seat in the EmSella® treatment chair. Once in the correct positioning, your treatment will begin. EmSella® uses electromagnetic energy to cause deep pelvic floor muscle stimulation by doing 11,000 kegels for you in 30 minutes. During treatment you will feel slight tingling and vibrations in your pelvic floor muscles that eventually turn into full contractions. This is a comfortable treatment, and you should experience no pain and no downtime. During your EmSella® treatment you could read or just relax and be able to go back to regular daily activities immediately!
Candidates For EmSella®
EmSella® is a wonderful treatment option for women of all ages who desire a solution for urinary incontinence, recovery after childbirth, and improved intimate wellness. However, you cannot receive an EmSella® treatment if you have metal implants or metal IUD’s, heart disorders, a tumor, or during pregnancy. EmSella® is FDA approved for both men and women!
How Many EmSella® Treatments Do I Need?
Depending on your needs, Dr. Petropoulos will create a customized treatment plan for you. Typically, we recommend 2 sessions a week for 3 weeks for a total of 6 sessions.
Recovery For EmSella®
EmSella® is a quick and easy noninvasive treatment for incontinence. There is no downtime after treatments.

Are There Any Side Effects With EmSella®?
EmSella® has no side effects after treatment. During treatment you may feel tingling and be able to feel the contractions, but it is a pain free and easy treatment with no downtime!
