Face First Aesthetics

Non-invasive treatment can improve urinary incontinence

Holiday parties and family get-togethers offer a chance to let loose and have fun with those we love. However, for those who suffer from urinary incontinence, these events can also be a source of anxiety.

“What if I dance or laugh too hard?”

“What if I need to get up suddenly to use the restroom?”

Emily Greb is a Nurse Practitioner, and Medical Director and owner of Face First Medical Aesthetics and Wellness. She says incontinence and the self-consciousness it causes are more common than most women realize.

“I talk to patients about incontinence daily, not only in my aesthetic practice, but in my family practice. Some plan their road trips around stops at the ‘nicest’ rest stops. Some wake frequently throughout the night or avoid physical activity to avoid bladder leaks. Others are embarrassed about the potential of odour that can come with urinary incontinence.”

As a mother and a running enthusiast, Emily says she suffered with this as well, until she discovered the Emsella Chair.

“As soon as I tried it, I knew I wanted to offer it to our patients,” says Emily.

The Emsella Chair works by using electromagnetic energy to stimulate the muscles deep in the pelvic floor, without an intimate exam. Each session, patients experience over 11,000 Kegel-like contractions that train the muscles without any effort.

“It has helped me feel secure when I am active or enjoying a good belly laugh with my family.”

The full six-session treatment is done over three weeks. If you’ve used the Emsella Chair in the past, Emily suggests considering periodic single sessions to keep your pelvic floor strong.

“This treatment is available to locals and cottagers alike,” says Emily. “No matter how much time you’re here, you deserve to look and feel your best.”

Emily’s desire to help others feel their best is what drove her to open Face First Medical Aesthetics and Wellness – Orillia’s only nurse practitioner-led medical aesthetics and wellness clinic. Emily and her team of trained and regulated health care professionals provide cosmetic injections, along with the PRF injections for hair restoration, joint injections for arthritic pain management, and the treatments of fine lines, wrinkles and scar reduction. They also have a laser that provides IPL, pixel, and laser hair removal treatments.

“Botox is always a popular choice,” says Emily. “The great thing about it is there’s no downtime. It’s a treatment that can be done during your lunch hour and results last about three months.”

This is also a popular season for laser treatments, as we are less exposed to the sun.

“Whether you book a consultation or buy a gift card for someone you love, we’re here to help you feel better and regain your confidence.”

Get dirty for clean water

You may have a water treatment system, but is it doing its job? Regular maintenance is vital to keeping your water clean and safe.

Demand still high, but buyers taking their time

The real estate market is normalizing, and despite what some panicky naysayers may think, the idea that cottage prices will be plummeting is farfetched.

Tried and true collection makes an architectural statement

Revamping your style isn’t always about looking forward. Sometimes, it’s a matter of reaching into the past. After all, as the saying goes, “the
