About Urinary Incontinence:
Urinary incontinence is defined as the involuntary leakage of urine. This might be a result of weak pelvic floor muscles since pelvic floor muscles play an important role in supporting pelvic organs and controlling continence.
There are three different types of urinary incontinence:
Stress Incontinence: is when there is exerted pressure on the bladder causing leakage. This can be caused by coughing, laughing, sneezing, or exercising.
Urge: is the sudden, intense urge to urinate frequently.
Mixed incontinence: is a combination of both stress and urge incontinence.
Physiological changes can contribute to the development of urinary incontinence; changes such as vaginal delivery, menopause, and aging can decondition pelvic floor muscles. In order to improve symptoms, it is important to strengthen these muscles. Possible ways to improve your condition may include lifestyle changes and Kegel exercises.
Mechanism of Action:
BTL Emsella utilizes electromagnetic energy, at a high frequency, to cause pelvic floor muscle stimulation completely non-invasively. Similar to the contractions you perform when doing a Kegel exercise. What makes this treatment effective is the in-depth penetration and stimulation of the entire pelvic floor area. A single session brings you thousands of intense contractions that you would not be able to do on your own. These contractions are very helpful when it comes to muscle strengthening and re-education.
Benefits of BTL Emsella:
A non-invasive procedure with no recovery time.
Remain fully clothed during treatment.
Restores bladder and pelvic muscle control without time-consuming exercises.
A comfortable procedure that lets you relax during the 28-minute treatment.
You may observe improvement after a single session. Results will typically continue improving over the next few weeks.
Results after about six sessions, scheduled twice a week.
Patients have reported a significant pad reduction.
What to Expect During the Treatment?
During BTL Emsella treatment you will be completely clothed yet, we recommend loosely fitted clothing to help achieve best positioning during treatment. When the treatment starts you will feel slight tingling and vibrations in your pelvic floor muscles that will then turn into full contractions. This will be completely comfortable and tolerable. This 28-minute session allows you to relax. You will be able to return to normal activities after the treatment.
