Most patients with premature ejaculation have a low ejaculatory threshold due to an oversensitive glans penis or head of the penis. Men with this issue require very little stimulation to ejaculate.

HOW LONG DO EMSELLA RESULTS LAST? DO I HAVE TO REPEAT THE PROCEDURE REGULARLY?

Clinical studies show that the majority of patients are able to maintain the results 6 months or longer after their treatment series. The pelvic floor is a series of muscles though. If these muscles are not maintained, they can lose some of their strength and can affect the progress you have achieved.

We always do a 4-week follow up after you have completed your 6-session protocol. This is an important appointment to assess your progress and discuss maintenance session recommendations. Keeping a healthy lifestyle, maintaining muscular strength through exercise recommendations or doing single maintenance sessions on the Emsella chair is key to maintaining your results in the longer term.

Our team will review your progress and make several recommendations, including important lifestyle changes if needed. Everything we do is to ensure your best result.

WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS FROM MY EMSELLA TREATMENT?

This may vary depending on your age, physical condition, and many other aspects. Studies have shown that 6 sessions is usually sufficient to strengthen pelvic floor muscles. This can vary with the extent of your specific medical condition or history. Some patients begin to feel tangible results right after the first treatment, but everyone responds differently. Positive results typically continue to improve over the next few weeks.

IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME OR PRE/POST EMSELLA TREATMENT PREPARATION?

It is possible to feel some brief soreness as though you did a workout. In general, this is extremely well tolerated. You can get back to any daily activity immediately following the procedure. This is a safe and tolerated well treatment for the elderly as well.

Men can benefit as well. This Includes those with erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation or those who suffer with prostate issues or have had invasive prostate surgery.

Those with certain metals in their body need to be screen carefully prior to starting treatment. This will be discussed in the free consultation.

HOW DOES THE EMSELLA CHAIR COMPARE TO THE OTHER SERVICES THAT ARE OUT THERE?

The Kegel Throne Emsella Treatment is the only procedure that targets pelvic floor muscles involuntarily and causes almost 12, 000 deep pelvic floor contractions due to HIFEM®* technology. These contractions are much stronger than you could induce on your own if doing a kegel exercise.

Comparing to Kegel exercises, patients are often not able to properly contract pelvic floor muscles when they are very weak, this causes clients to not maintain the consistency required because they don’t feel like much is happening or improving.

Procedures such as intravaginal electrostimulation have a risk of burns and lack the effect as the electrical current treats tissue only superficially, plus the need to insert the disposable vaginal probe is very invasive by nature.

Pelvic floor physiotherapy is another proven method of strengthening pelvic floor muscles. It has been studied and proven effective. However, due to the invasive nature of the exam and exercises, many clients choose not to participate or fail to remain consistent in their therapy

HOW CAN PATIENTS BENEFIT FROM THE EMSELLA PROCEDURE?

The Kegel Throne Emsella Treatment helps patients to restore bowel, bladder and sexual control by strengthening their pelvic floor muscles. This series of muscles is very important to the overall support of your bowels, bladder and sexual function. So when the muscles are weak, you can start to develop issues in any or all of those affected areas. Strengthening these muscles improves your symptoms.

The Kegel Throne Emsella Treatment is a truly non-invasive, painless procedure where patients remain fully clothed.
