Do you have to take frequent trips to the bathroom at night, just to be able to fall asleep in peace? Or perhaps, sexual intimacy doesn’t feel like it once did. If your bladder and pelvic muscles don’t feel as strong as before, despite your young age, there are solutions. One of them is just 28 minutes on the Emsella machine.
Incontinence is a very common condition, more so among women who have gone through pregnancy and childbirth. The loss of bladder control results in the occasional leakage of urine when there’s a push, such as with a cough or sneeze. The severity of urinary incontinence varies — some people may experience a frequent need to go to the bathroom, especially at night, while others may experience more panic around having strong and sudden urges to urinate. Those who experience incontinence may also find that it is hard to enjoy sex.
Doctors recommend daily kegel exercises to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles, the easiest method available to women of all ages. In extreme cases, those with severe urinary incontinence might look into surgeries to solve the problem of weakened or atrophied pelvic floor muscles. Of course, as with any surgery, there are risks and shortfalls.
If you’re looking for a non-invasive solution, there’s the Emsella treatment offered by Beauty & Co, a beauty co-working space that provides treatments targeting sexual health, weight loss, pigmentation and anti-ageing. The centre’s menu of services ranges from luxury facials to hair removal, and even niche treatments such as body contouring with EmSculpt Neo. Beauty & Co have invested over RM4 million in FDA-approved machinery to bring the very best and latest technology to its clients, which includes Dato Siti Nurhaliza.
My vision for Beauty & Co is for it to be a platform to encourage self-love for all and part of practising self-love is through making sure that one takes care of themselves. Beyond it being about aesthetics, self-care promotes confidence and results in empowerment which is the core of this centre and what we aim to drive here. We want every single customer to walk out not just looking their best but also feeling their very best,” says Yann, founder of Beauty & Co with over 20 years of experience in the beauty and aesthetics industry.
Emsella is offered at Beauty & Co to provide a solution to incontinence, an often neglected or taboo issue. The treatment is unlike any other spa day or body treatment you’d have tried in the past. Expect relaxation to only come from your choice of entertainment on the smart TV in front of you. The benefits however are impressive and plenty — a single 28-minute-long session claims to deliver the equivalent of 12,000 kegel exercises.
What Emsella does, is provide electromagnetic stimulation of the pelvic floor. The tech is infused into a chair-like structure for clients to sit on, quite comfortably in fact, where a coil generates pulsed electromagnetic fields that penetrate deep into the pelvic floor muscles to induce stimulation and rehabilitate weakened pelvic floor muscles. The sensation can vary, but most who have tried it will agree that the Emsella treatment feels like rapid, intense, tingling pulses. Don’t worry, there’s nothing to fear here.
Each session is completely non-surgical, private, painless, and clients can remain fully clothed. With zero downtime, you can walk out of Beauty & Co feeling more confident. While a single session may improve the strength of pelvic muscles, Beauty & Co recommends at least eight sessions for more severe incontinence issues.
