Everything You Need to Know About Emsella Chair Side Effects

Emsella Chair Side Effects2

If you’re worried about incontinence, then you may have come across the Emsella Chair during your search for treatment.

The Emsella Chair uses electromagnetic technology to strengthen your pelvic floor while you sit in a comfortable chair. This incredible technology has made noninvasive treatment for incontinence possible, and the Emsella Chair can be used fully clothed, making it a comfortable experience too. 

We know that people considering new treatments often have concerns about side effects, so this blog aims to provide clear information about any potential Emsella Chair side effects, benefits, and suitability.

What is the Emsella Chair?

The Emsella chair offers a revolutionary, non-invasive solution for strengthening your pelvic floor muscles. Suitable for both men and women, this FDA-approved treatment comfortably and effectively exercises your pelvic floor, often providing relief from incontinence and other related issues.

Each 28-minute session on the Emsella Chair delivers the equivalent of 11,000 Kegel exercises (pelvic floor contractions), far exceeding what’s achievable through manual effort alone. While most individuals see optimal results with a series of six treatments, the benefits can last up to a year or longer with occasional maintenance sessions.

The Emsella Chair utilises electromagnetic technology to stimulate and strengthen the pelvic floor muscles. During the treatment, you simply sit fully clothed on the chair-like device while the technology works its magic.

What Can The Emsella Chair Help With?

For women, one of the side effects of Emsella Chair is that it creates a tighter vaginal canal and even improves sensation for vaginal tissues, including the vaginal opening and clitoris. You may also experience increased sexual pleasure that boosts your overall sex drive and can make it easier to achieve orgasm. 

But the Emsella Chair is not just for women; it’s a highly effective urinary incontinence treatment for men too. Men receiving Emsella Chair treatments can enjoy improvements in bladder control, sexual health and sexual performance for up to 12 months after treatment.

The Emsella Chair also helps treat the following conditions:

  • Stress Incontinence: Addresses those embarrassing leaks brought on by coughing, sneezing, exercise, or laughter.
  • Urge Incontinence: Helps gain control over the sudden, overwhelming need to urinate, reducing frequent loo trips!
  • Weak Pelvic Floor: Strengthening the entire network of muscles supporting your bladder and other organs offers long-term benefits.
  • Post-Childbirth Recovery: Rebuilds pelvic floor strength after the strain of pregnancy and delivery.
  • Improved Intimacy: For both men and women, a stronger pelvic floor can contribute to enhanced sexual experiences.

The Truth About Emsella Chair Side Effects

The Emsella Chair is generally considered safe with minimal side effects. It’s natural to have questions about the treatment and what to expect afterwards.

Emsella side effects are minimal, and the treatment is generally considered very safe. 

You might experience:

  • Temporary muscle soreness (similar to a workout)
  • Slight tingling or contractions during treatment
  • Potential temporary redness or tenderness in the treatment area

However, if you do experience any of these side effects of the Emsella Chair they should resolve quickly.

Emsella Chair: The Procedure

The first step in having a procedure with Elite Aesthetics is a thorough consultation. Here, your doctor can establish exactly what you want to achieve with your treatment and how many sessions will be suitable for you. 

It’s not just a chance for your doctor to ask you questions, though. This is your chance to ask any questions or talk through any concerns, especially if you are concerned about any potential Emsella Chair side effects. 

Once you’ve had your consultation and booked your treatment, you’ll be invited into the clinic for your treatment. You will arrive on the day and be taken into a relaxing, peaceful treatment room for the procedure. 

The procedure involves you sitting on the Emsella Chair fully clothed while the chair does all the work. You can even read a book or magazine while it’s happening. You can’t use technology while undergoing this treatment because it interferes with the electromagnetic waves. So it is best to turn your phone off while the procedure is happening, but that does mean that screen downtime will be one of the Emsella side effects that is perhaps quite welcome!

The treatment lasts 30 minutes, and you won’t feel any discomfort. You’ll be able to resume your daily activities straight away. That being said, you might feel like you’ve had a bit of a workout, but this is one of the Emsella Chair side effects that you’ll want to feel, as it just means that your muscles are reacting in the right way. 

The Emsella Chair is one of our most simple but effective treatments for the treatment of intimate issues.

Next Steps

As you can see, the Emsella treatment side effects are minimal and the benefits are enormous. The procedure isn’t just about fixing a medical issue; it’s about reclaiming your freedom and rediscovering the joy of living without limits.

Read How I Improved My Lichen Sclerosus

Had a consultation with Elite yesterday, I must say I was a bit nervous, but Dr Shirin was so friendly and helpful.
I was given lots of advice and was given treatment options that were within my budget.
A few weeks after the P Shot I've really started to see a difference and have gained my confidence back.

Thank You!



Elite is an outstanding professional clinic with high standard treatments. All the staff members are friendly and offer you honest opinions when it comes to products and treatments. This is a welcoming clinic that I can 100% recommend. Treatments are spoken through and explained in detail, also aftercare. I have been going nearly a year now and am happy with all the treatments I’ve had, wouldn't go anywhere else. The Bocox treatment started to work within a few days, which I was surprised about. So glad I went to Elite for treatment.



Thank you Dr Shirin, the O Shot has really helped me with my Lichen Sclerosus. I'd heard about the treatment on the LS Facebook Groups and message a few people that had treatment with Dr Shirin. I was like many in the group who had run out of treatment options and using creams on a daily basis. I have to say a few months after treatment, I can see a real positive change and I'm hoping my LS will continue to improve. Dr Shirin did say that I might have to have a second treatment given how severe my case is.




A great discovery in the neighbourhood ! There is no need to go up to London for a beauty treatment of any kind. You'll find a whole range of different treatments suiting all age groups and concerns. Welcoming, reassuring, friendly, professional, high tech. I shall be back for more. I love the results of the Thread Lift I had.


Great service as always, skin is glowing very happy


Very happy with the result of my recent visit. For sure will continue with Elite in future

Hi, Alex here,Just had my Lichen treatment today with Dr Shirin,The whole team at elite are very friendly, comforting and understanding, and did everything they could to give me a wonderful and welcoming experience. They are all so kind, friendly and knowledgeable, world experts at what they do. I am lucky to have them near London. They are also super responsive on the phone and email, so I know they care about thier patients, and I'm very well taken care of, (as with other clinics I have been to, its often difficult to get them to respond to questions), but this clinic is the most responsive I have ever seen!This is a beautiful and wonderful place and I highly recommend it, and I will be recommending it to all my friends as well. They definitely deserve the super high reviews they are getting, so I'm happy to add another one! A Big thank you from me and my family for all you have done for us during this journey!

Yesterday I had a 'body sculpt' session, to help lymphatic drainage. I was zipped into a suit up to my waist. This massaged and lightly squeezed my feet, ankles, calves, thighs and abdomen. I was breathing oxygen rich air via nasal tubes. It was very relaxing and I slept really well last night. Thank you Elite Aesthetics.
