Female incontinence is a common concern among older women and those who have experienced trauma through childbirth. Additionally, conditions such as multiple sclerosis, diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, and stroke can lead to the development of incontinence. These diseases, among others, disrupt nerve function and lead to urge incontinence. Bladder problems, such as infections and bladder stones, and certain medications can also have an impact on bladder control. Though it can’t be use to treat the aforementioned disease, BTL Emsella can effectively reduce symptoms of female incontinence without the need for complicated procedures.
What Is BTL Emsella?
BTL Emsella is a treatment designed to improve female urinary incontinence by improving muscular strength and control. This non-invasive device functions as a high-tech throne that strengthens the pelvic floor muscles through targeted stimulation. The result is an improvement in the neuromuscular function that allows for bladder and overall muscular control. The benefits of Emsella over other invasive and non-invasive options is that the procedure can be performed quickly and there is no downtime after treatment.
How Does Emsella Work?
Incontinence occurs as a result of weakened pelvic floor muscles stemming from body aging, childbirth, menopause and other diseases. Patients who have severely weakened pelvic floor muscles are not able to support their pelvic organs. During BTL Emsella treatment sessions, the patient’s pelvic floor muscles are effectively stimulated with thousands of contractions per session. This stimulation facilitates greater strength, improves neuromuscular control, and results in the decline of incontinence incidences.
Emsella Treatment Results
Treatment sessions with BTL Emsella take roughly 30 minutes. During that time, the patient is seated, fully clothed, and free to relax with their phone, tablet, or a book. As the device stimulates the pelvic floor muscles, patients tend to experience tingling and muscle contractions. Most describe this treatment process as feeling comfortable or even pleasant. Improvements may be experienced after a single session and results generally continue to improve over the course of several weeks.
