Emsella for Urinary Incontinence

People may not like to talk about urinary incontinence, but it is a very real—and common—problem. While anyone can deal with leakage and loss of bladder control, patients who truly wish for a solution are typically women who find that a sneeze, laugh, or even a simple activity like getting up and down or jogging can trigger an embarrassing or uncomfortable little “accident.” While everything from childbirth to hormone shifts can contribute to the development of urinary incontinence, Portland’s Aesthetic Medicine often recommends a single solution: Emsella. This energy-based device is ideal for a wide range of patients because it is entirely non-invasive, it is highly effective, and it can provide numerous benefits—including an improvement in self-image and confidence.

Why Choose Aesthetic Medicine for Emsella Urinary Incontinence Treatments in Portland?

The Aesthetic Medicine team is devoted to benefitting patients’ lives by providing advanced technology that safely provides consistent results in a welcoming setting. Everything we do is focused on making the journey to your desired results as comfortable and empowering as possible—and that includes urinary incontinence treatments with Emsella. These are the least-invasive treatments available for addressing stress incontinence, allowing you to avoid surgery while improving the strength of your pelvic floor. The results can even potentially help to improve sexual dysfunction related to age-related laxity!

What Causes Urinary Incontinence?

There are several different types of urinary incontinence, which is the medical term for the involuntary release of urine from the bladder. One very common type is stress incontinence, which is related to increased “stress” or pressure put on the bladder due to weakened pelvic floor muscles.

A typically strong pelvic floor supports the bladder and its healthy functioning. Over time, however, the pelvic floor muscles can weaken. They can also be strained by pregnancy and weight gain, as well as be damaged by trauma during the childbirth process. Hormone shifts may also contribute to increased pelvic floor laxity and urinary incontinence.

Without its steady support, a bladder is more likely to leak urine when “jostled” by common activities. Anything that suddenly jars the body—from exercises to coughing—can be a problem for patients with stress-based urinary incontinence.

Another type of urinary incontinence is urge incontinence, which is defined by frequently feeling the need to urinate.

An estimated one in three women experience some type of urinary incontinence, so if you are dealing with the problem, you should know that you are not alone. You should also know that you can do something about it!

Happily, re-strengthening the pelvic floor can be a tremendous help for both types of urinary incontinence. Stronger muscles mean more bladder support, which means less concern over losing control throughout the day. Emsella focuses on building up pelvic floor muscles to reduce and prevent against urinary incontinence.

How Does Emsella Work to Address Urinary Incontinence?

Everyone knows that exercising your biceps, abs, or glutes with repetitive contractions strengthens these muscles. The same goes for your pelvic floor! While there are exercises you can do to build up this area—such as “Kegels,” which flex your pelvic floor muscles to help with urinary incontinence and more—Emsella is a device that serves as a “super charged” workout for more dramatic results.

Delivering electromagnetic energy to a muscle can cause it to involuntarily contract. The Emsella urinary incontinence treatment device emits electromagnetic energy that triggers thousands of what are known as supramaximal contractions in the pelvic floor. These supramaximal contractions are more powerful and rapid than would ever be possible with exercise alone.

The intensity of this workout strengthens the targeted muscles, as well as “re-educates” them on their proper function when it comes to providing support for the bladder and more.

Over time, the pelvic floor regains its ability to help the bladder maintain its proper function. Studies have shown that 95 percent of patients say the treatment improves their quality of life, and 75 percent say they have been able to reduce the wearing of pads to deal with urinary incontinence.

What Happens Before an Emsella Session for Urinary Incontinence?

The Aesthetic Medicine team understands that talking about urinary incontinence can be embarrassing. We want you to be as comfortable as possible—and for you to be able to get relief from the problem!—which is why we hold private, discreet, and personalized consultations. Each patient is treated with compassion and dignity, and we focus on finding solutions that are safe, effective, and intended to improve your quality of life.

At your consultation, we will listen to your concerns and goals, as well as explain more about how Emsella works to address urinary incontinence and provide other benefits. We will also thoroughly answer any questions you have. Our goal is not just for you to get the help you need with a safe and effective treatment, but also for you to feel totally comfortable and confident in your decision.

Together, we will discuss all of the necessary details, including possible side effects of urinary incontinence treatments (you may be a little sore for a brief while), Emsella cost, payment specifics, and more. With these topics discussed ahead of time, you can focus on the treatments—and your improved quality of life—when it’s time.

What Happens During an Emsella Session for Urinary Incontinence?

The Emsella device is designed as a seat. You sit directly on it—fully clothed, since the electromagnetic energy passes through clothing on its way to stimulate the pelvic floor muscles. We advise that you dress comfortably so that you have good range of motion and can easily sit in the ideal position.

When the device is activated, patients typically report feeling a gradually building “tingling” sensation, as well as being aware of their pelvic floor muscle contractions. Remember that these contractions will be rapid and intense. A single 30-minute session is the same as about 11,000 Kegels. The point is to give the muscles a powerful workout!

There is no pain associated with these treatments, so no anesthetic will be required to maintain your comfort.

What Happens After an Emsella Session for Urinary Incontinence?

Most patients say that they experience some muscle soreness in the days after their urinary incontinence treatment, and this is to be expected. After all, your pelvic floor muscles just had the most intense workout ever!

There is no need for any healing or down time after a treatment session. Patients can return to any and all of their regular activities as soon as they’d like.

Some improvement in muscle control may be noticed shortly after the first treatment, but results take time. The stimulated muscles will continue to strengthen over the following weeks. Ideal results typically take about six sessions, each scheduled at least two days apart. Your initial consultation will include a discussion about how many urinary incontinence treatments may be needed, as well as what you can expect during and after the process.

Ultimately, the improved muscles in the pelvic floor can help to reduce urinary leaks and “dribbles,” as well as provide better control over bowel function. The strengthening can even help tampons or period cups stay in place better. Overall, the main goal is to improve your wellness and confidence.

What Other Energy-Based Treatments Are Available at Aesthetic Medicine?

Electromagnetism is not the only energy used for improving patients’ lives at Aesthetic Medicine. Radiofrequency energy also has numerous benefits, able to accomplish everything from skin tightening with Exilis or Morpheus8 microneedling to contouring via FaceTite or the MiniFaceLift™, available exclusively at our practice. Laser and light energy also have a range of uses, helping to remove unwanted veins and hair, treat acne, and improve the look of skin that has freckles, spots, or general redness. Talk to us about your options and get started with a customized plan, whether that includes urinary incontinence treatment, skin tightening, or a combination of options!

What is Emsella?

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!

What to Expect from Emsella

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.
