Emsella™ Q & A
What is 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.
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.
Statistics show that approximately 35% of women worldwide are affected by urinary incontinence, which presents itself in three forms: stress (leakage during physical activity), urge (strong & sudden), and mixed (combination of stress and urge). Incontinence is often a result of child birth and/or the natural aging process, and can have a dramatic effect on a woman’s quality of life. Women often report having to give up exercise and a decrease in self-confidence and intimacy as a result of incontinence.
BTL EMSELLA™ is a great option for women of any age who desire a non-invasive solution for urinary incontinence and improvement in their quality of life. Due to factors such as the body’s normal aging, childbirth or menopause, the pelvic floor muscles decondition and insufficiently support the pelvic organs. These factors directly correlate with urinary incontinence.
How does BTL Emsella work?
BTL EMSELLA uses electromagnetic energy to cause deep pelvic floor muscle stimulation without getting undressed! A single BTL EMSELLA session brings thousands of Kegel-like contractions which help you train your muscles without any effort. Scientific research shows that 95% of treated patients have reported significant improvement in their quality of life.
BTL EMSELLA is the HIFEM® procedure that 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.
What to expect during the treatment?
During BTL EMSELLA treatment you will be completely clothed yet, we recommended 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. If not, please let your healthcare provider know and they will adjust accordingly. Take this 28-minute session to relax, read a magazine, or watch television. You will be able to return to normal activities after the treatment.
When can I expect results?
A recent clinical study demonstrated that 95% of patients reported satisfaction and significant improvement in their quality of life following six treatments with BTL EMSELLA™. Additionally, 67% of treated patients totally eliminated or decreased the use of hygienic pads in day-to-day life.
For optimal results with BTL EMSELLA™, Huntington Urology Specialists recommends 6 series of 28 minute treatments twice a week.
