Studies show that incontinence affects roughly 200 million people worldwide. It’s difficult to estimate the number of individuals suffering from this issue, since intimate health is seldom discussed, and people rarely see their doctors regarding treatment. With only half of individuals seeking professional help, it’s time to normalize conversation surrounding incontinence. The sooner we discuss it, the quicker we can fix it.
Weak pelvic floor muscles attribute to the involuntary leakage of urine, known as Urinary Incontinence.
There Are The 3 Types of Urinary Incontinence:
- Stress Incontinence: (most common) Exerted pressure on the bladder caused by coughing, laughing, sneezing or exercising, resulting in embarrassing leaks
- Urge Incontinence: Intense urge to pee/urinate
- Mixed Incontinence: Combination of both stress and urge
Contributing Factors to Urinary Incontinence:
- Post Childbirth Issues
These factors weaken the pelvic floor muscles, which are the muscles supporting the uterus, bladder and rectum. Strengthening these muscles help improve urinary incontinence as well as increasing sexual satisfaction.
How Does BTL Emsella Work?
BTL Emsella uses High Intensity Focused ElectroMagnetic Energy (HIFEM) to cause deep pelvic floor muscle stimulation. It penetrates and stimulates the entire pelvic floor area by causing thousands of contractions that could not be achieved otherwise. These contractions restore pelvic floor strength and alignment.
What to Expect
This is a 28-minute non-invasive procedure that can be done fully clothed. Once the treatment starts, you will feel a slight tingle in your pelvic floor muscles that will turn into full contractions. This is a completely comfortable sensation. As soon as the session is complete, you can immediately return to normal activities, as there is no down time/recovery period.
The majority of individuals need a course of six sessions over a period of three weeks for optimal results, however, some patients observed improvements after a single session, with continued results over the next few weeks.
Please note, this treatment is not for you if you have metal implants, tumors, heart disorders, or are pregnant.
