Are you afraid to laugh, cough, or sneeze because you’re likely to experience bladder leakage? Perhaps you have to wear a pad or a diaper. Urinary stress incontinence can put a damper on your social life, work life, and intimate life.
At the same time, you may miss how sexual intercourse felt when you were younger, before childbirth caused changes to your reproductive organs.
Now, the medical community has a new tool to help remediate urinary incontinence and improve sexual function at the same time: EMSELLA®.
At A Beautiful You Medical Spa, we want you to live your best life. We’ve invested in EMSELLA because it can improve both urinary and sexual function, which can dramatically enhance your quality of life.
What is EMSELLA and how does it help urinary incontinence?
Childbirth, menopause, and aging can all contribute to urinary incontinence in women. These life changes can weaken your pelvic floor muscles, which support your bladder, uterus, and bowel.
In both sexes, obesity, heavy lifting, and chronic coughing or chronic constipation can weaken the pelvic floor muscles. When these muscles lack complete support, you may experience bladder or bowel leakage.
EMSELLA uses high intensity focused energy (HIFEM) to trigger thousands of contractions in your pelvic floor muscles. Just as with any exercise program, the workout makes those muscles stronger.
Once your pelvic floor muscles regain their strength, they can support your internal organs as they’re supposed to do, preventing bladder and bowel leakage.
How does EMSELLA aid sexual function?
Many women experience looseness of the vagina after childbearing. Vaginal laxity can lessen sexual pleasure during intercourse. EMSELLA treatments stimulate the muscles in the vaginal area, strengthening them. This helps to tighten the vagina, increasing sensation.
What happens during EMSELLA treatment?
EMSELLA is completely noninvasive and drug-free. You simply sit on the specially designed EMSELLA chair. You’re fully clothed during the session.
During the treatment, which takes less than 30 minutes, electromagnetic energy produces waves of pelvic floor muscle contractions, strengthening all of the pelvic floor muscles. During each session, EMSELLA delivers the equivalent of 11,200 Kegel exercises — so many more than you could ever do on your own.
There’s no downtime after the treatment. You can simply resume your day.
How many EMSELLA treatments do I need?
EMSELLA recommends two sessions per week for three weeks, for a total of six sessions. The treatment is quick and easy.
We can now treat urinary stress incontinence and loss of sexual function simply and noninvasively. Call our Memphis, Tennessee, medical spa today for a consultation or request more information through our online portal.
