Emsella Results: Here’s What to Expect

Emsella is a non-invasive treatment used to manage incontinence by strengthening the pelvic floor. Weakening of the pelvic floor muscles is mainly associated with decreased ability to control the release of urine. However, it is also associated with erectile dysfunction in men and difficulty achieving orgasms in women.

Emsella therapy strengthens the pelvic muscles and improves neuromuscular responses, reducing incontinence symptoms. Additionally, it may offer other benefits, such as improved intimacy and desire. Emsella significantly improves continence in men and women. Here is what to expect from emsella results.

When Do I See the Benefits?

Individuals seeking Emsella treatment begin to observe results after a few sessions. It is not unexpected to not observe any results immediately after the first treatment. However, some men might notice improved continence. Regardless, most patients must have three to six sessions to observe significant benefits.

One scientific study noted over 80% of patients saw significant improvements in their UI symptoms after six sessions. For both men and women to view improved sexual satisfaction, they may require at least six 30-minute sessions of treatment over three weeks.

The benefits are temporary for the first month. However, long-term benefits require around 3 to 6 months of continuous treatment.

The exact duration to view positive changes in patients differs from patient to patient, depending on the severity of their situation. Additionally, some patients may get worse before getting better immediately after treatment. Despite reducing symptoms of UI, patients may view results after different durations.

Emsella Results to Expect

Emsella significantly improves the quality of life (QoL) in all patients that undergo the procedure. Scientific studies have noted a reduction in all metrics used to gauge UI, such as the frequency of leakage, the amount of urine leaked, and the level of interference with daily life.

One study showed that the procedure improved around 50% of the metrics used to gauge the symptoms of UI after six sessions and 65% after three months. They also reported that over 50% of the patients reported a few cases of experiencing leakage before reaching the restroom, while asleep, and during physical exercise.

The results are likely linked to the thickening of pelvic muscles after emsella therapy. The study noted that muscle density could improve by over 20% after just one month of treatment, with additional improvement expected for the duration of treatment.

Additionally, the therapy increased the patient’s perception of the contraction and relaxation of the muscles involved in controlling the bladder during the procedure.

Patients have also reported significantly reduced usage of absorbent pads. A scientific study noted that absorbent pad usage was reduced by over 50%, with around 35% of the patients not requiring their usage after the 6th session. Reducing pad usage was one of the significant causes of increased satisfaction with the treatment.

Despite the impressive results, only around 35% of patients will attain complete continence. However, most patients will experience an over 65% improvement in their UI metrics. Therefore, patients should have informed expectations of the treatment to avoid dissatisfaction after the procedure.

How Improvements Occur

Emsella has significantly improved physical, social, and psychological aspects of quality of life. Emsella therapy targets the neuromuscular tissue triggering intense pelvic floor muscle (PFM) contractions by inducing electric currents.

Repeat exposure to the therapy causes physical changes to the muscle structure by stimulating the growth of protein filaments and muscle fibers.

Additionally, repeated activation of the nerves and muscles builds muscle strength and endurance, allowing better control of the urinary bladder, urethra, vaginal wall, rectum, and pelvic floor muscles. This is also assisted by restoring neuromuscular control through continuous stimulation of the nerves in the pelvic floor.

The Short-Term or Long-Term Solution?

The results of emsella are only a long-term solution with continuous maintenance. The results from emsella may start reverting between 6 to 12 months after the last treatment despite the physical changes to the muscles and nerves in the pelvic region. Similar to all muscles in the body, muscles deteriorate with continuous exercise.

Patients must regularly exercise the pelvic muscles to fight against the natural aging of muscles and maintain the Emsella results. Patients with more severe incontinence may have varying results as their results may revert faster than those with less severe incontinence.

Alternative surgical treatment may offer a permanent solution. However, it is associated with increased invasiveness and complications during and after the surgery.

Additionally, some patients may still have symptoms of UI and require pads despite surgical intervention. But it will be to a lesser extent. Therefore, emsella is still a viable long treatment for incontinence.

Maintaining The Benefits of Emsella

Though Emsella can significantly alleviate incontinence symptoms, individuals can boost and maintain the benefits further through:

  • Performing Kegels regularly, if possible, daily, to increase control over the bladder. Kegel exercises allow patients to exercise their pelvic muscles regularly, maintaining their physical changes and neurostimulation, allowing better bladder control.
  • Eat a balanced diet daily as nutrients boost healthy bodily functions, including healthier elastic pelvic muscles. Like all parts of the body, nutrients are required for the proper functioning of body organs. A healthy diet allows the pelvic muscles to receive enough nutrients to thicken, restore their function, and reduce aging effects.
  • Avoid or reduce intake of alcohol and caffeine as they are known to affect the operation of the bladder. These substances have been associated with reduced muscle control and coordination and reduced muscle formation.


Patients receiving Emsella treatment can expect improved continence that significantly reduces the symptoms of urinary incontinence. After roughly six treatment sessions, patients have been shown to have significantly improved continence with significantly improved bladder control.

Despite the significant benefits of Emsella, patients should know what to expect after treatment. Around 35% may restore continence. However, most patients with less severe incontinence can expect an over 65% improvement in incontinence measurements.
