BTL Emsella is a non-invasive device used to treat urinary incontinence and improve pelvic floor muscles. It utilizes electromagnetic stimulation (EMS) technology to stimulate the pelvic floor muscles, leading to strengthening and toning.
Urinary incontinence is a condition characterized by the involuntary loss of urine, often caused by weakened pelvic floor muscles. It commonly affects women who have experienced childbirth, menopause, or hormonal changes, but it can also occur in men due to prostate issues or other factors. Emsella offers a non-surgical, non-invasive option for addressing this issue.
The benefits of Emsella include:
- Improved bladder control: By strengthening the pelvic floor muscles, the treatment can help reduce or eliminate episodes of urinary incontinence.
- Non-invasive: Emsella is a non-surgical procedure, which means it does not require any incisions or anesthesia. It is considered safe and comfortable for patients. Fun fact: Patients stay fully clothed!
- Time-efficient: Each session typically lasts about 30 minutes, and several sessions are usually recommended for optimal results. The treatment is convenient and does not require downtime, allowing patients to resume their daily activities immediately.
- Improve sexual wellness: Strong pelvic floor muscles are important for sexual function, as they support the organs involved in sexual activity and contribute to sensations and orgasms. By enhancing the tone and strength of these muscles, Emsella can potentially lead to improved sexual experiences for some individuals.
The BTL Emsella treatment involves sitting fully clothed on a specialized chair that emits electromagnetic energy. These electromagnetic waves stimulate the pelvic floor muscles, causing deep contractions that engage and strengthen the muscles. The contractions achieved with BTL Emsella are typically more intense than what we can be achieved through voluntary exercises alone. Sitting on the chair for 28 minutes can equal up to 20,000 kegel exercises.
During the treatment, patients may experience a tingling sensation and a feeling of muscle contractions in the pelvic region. However, the procedure is generally well-tolerated and not considered painful.
It is important to note that while BTL Emsella can be an effective solution for many individuals with urinary incontinence of pelvic floor muscle weakness, it may not be suitable for everyone.
