Moms joke about how they can’t sneeze or do jumping jacks anymore after having babies, but for the approximately 25 million American women and men who are afflicted with urinary incontinence, it is no joking matter. If you are tired of worrying about when incontinence will strike or dealing with cumbersome leak protection pads, BTL Emsella® may be the perfect choice for you! At The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute, Dr. Christine Lee provides this treatment for women in the Walnut Creek, CA area so they can get their lives and confidence back.
How Emsella works
This non-invasive therapy is truly a breakthrough in urinary incontinence treatment. Previously, doctors could only recommend doing pelvic floor exercises that may or may not produce results, and the only alternatives were invasive surgical procedures. With Emsella, high intensity focused electromagnetic technology (HIFEM®) is used to stimulate the muscles in your entire pelvic floor to help rehabilitate them and restore neuromuscular control. In each 30-minute session, Emsella generates thousands of muscular contractions in the pelvic floor muscles that are stronger and more effective than Kegel exercises that you can do on your own. It has several other benefits, too:
- It is completely non-invasive and requires no downtime
- You can remain fully clothed during your treatment
- It is safe and has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for treating stress and urge urinary incontinence in men and women
- Emsella reviews by both patients and providers alike praise Emsella for its benefits
- Some patients have also reported positive side effects, such as increased orgasm strength
What to expect with Emsella treatment
The first step in taking control of urinary incontinence with Emsella is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Lee to determine if Emsella is the best choice for you. It can be a great option for men and women of all ages who are suffering from urinary incontinence and want to take steps to improve their quality of life.
No advance preparation is needed for your treatment. You stay fully clothed and simply sit on the Emsella chair, lovingly referred to as “the Kegel throne” by some. While the device is working, you will feel the contraction of your pelvic floor muscles and some tingling, but it is not unpleasant. The session usually takes about 30 minutes. When your treatment is complete, you can get right back to your day with no downtime or reduction in activity.
Dr. Lee will create a customized treatment plan based on your individual needs, but most patients need about six sessions that are scheduled two times per week to get the maximum benefits. Some patients notice improvements in urinary incontinence after their first session, but the results will continue improving over the next several weeks.
Your total Emsella treatment cost depends on how many sessions are needed to achieve optimal results. Our staff at The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute will walk through the costs with you in advance of your treatment, but it is often much less than you’d pay for invasive surgeries. When patients can stop buying those bulky urinary incontinence pads and regain quality of life, they find it has been well worth the cost.
