Emsella helps improve urinary incontinence

Summer 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. She says incontinence and the self-consciousness it causes are more common than most people realize.

“I talk to patients about incontinence daily. 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,” she says.

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.

The full six-session treatment is done over three weeks. After that, Emily advises periodic single sessions to keep your pelvic floor strong.

Emsculpt NeoThe Emsculpt Neo – a belt-like device that uses electromagnetic and radiofrequency energy to stimulate muscle contractions – is Face First’s latest in-house treatment option, targeting and strengthening patients’ specific muscle groups.

“You can use it on your biceps, triceps, and glutes,” says Emily. “But when used on your core muscles, in conjunction with the Emsella, it is an extremely effective treatment for incontinence and diastasis in postpartum patients.”

While these treatments are game-changers for new mothers, they are not exclusively for women. In men, the Emsella increases blood flow to the pelvic area, helping with erectile dysfunction and incontinence. And the EmSculpt Neo, when used with a healthy exercise regime, can tone stubborn muscle groups.

“It’s also wonderful for those with mobility issues, to strengthen core muscles that help with balance and stability,” says Emily.

“These treatments are available to locals and cottagers alike. We want you to look and feel your best. You deserve to enjoy life confidently.”
