Urinary incontinence, the loss of bladder control, is an embarrassing natural condition that affects women of all ages. It is usually caused by childbirth, body aging, or menopause.
There are two types of urinary incontinence: stress incontinence and urge incontinence. 1 in 3 women suffers from urinary incontinence, and if not treated or addressed early on, it can lead to more permanent effects.
Typically symptoms include leaking induced by laughing, coughing, or sneezing. Also, getting up several times nightly can be attributed to stress incontinence. Stress incontinence is usually the result of weakening or damage to the muscles used to prevent urination, such as the pelvic floor muscles and the urethral sphincter. Urge incontinence exists when patients have an increased urge to go more frequently than usual.
Though common, this condition can be improved! At Aesthetic Medicine, we offer BTL Emsella, a unique, breakthrough treatment for urinary incontinence that revolutionizes the women’s intimate health and wellness category by providing those suffering from incontinence with a completely non-invasive option.
BTL Emsella is intended to provide entirely non-invasive electromagnetic stimulation of pelvic floor musculature to rehabilitate weak pelvic muscles and restore neuromuscular control for the treatment of urinary incontinence in women.
The device treats the entire pelvic floor, effectively stimulating pelvic floor muscles with thousands of contractions per session. The stimulation leads to regained control over pelvic floor muscles and bladder. One treatment is equivalent to 11,000 Kegels in 30 minutes!
The recommended number of treatments is 6. The treatment is typically about 30 minutes per session, with sessions separated by at least two days, depending on your needs. Completing an entire treatment series is necessary to maximize treatment efficacy. The results will typically continue to improve over the next few weeks.
There is no pain associated with your treatment, and no anesthetic is required. You will experience gradually increasing tingling feelings and muscle contractions. These sensations in the pelvic area are normal and expected. On the day of the treatment, you are advised to wear comfortable clothes which allow flexibility for correct positioning and increased comfort during the treatment. As shown in the photo, you will be wearing your clothing during the treatment and sitting in the Emsella chair.
Our center is dedicated to providing you with the least invasive treatment options that provide excellent results. For urinary incontinence, Emsella does just that.
