Do you suffer from urinary incontinence? Has your life been constricted by the need to be near a bathroom? Perhaps you have stress incontinence. You’re afraid to laugh, cough, or sneeze, because when you do, your bladder leaks. You may not be able to get through a gym workout unless you wear an absorbent pad in your underpants.
On the other hand, you may have functional incontinence. Arthritis or an illness has disabled you, and now it takes too long to get to the bathroom.
Perhaps you’ve tried Kegel exercises but they haven’t worked. Whatever the reason for your incontinence, you wish there was a simple answer.
Our expert team at A Beautiful You Medical Spa in Memphis, Tennessee, has the answer you’ve been looking for. Emsella® is a revolutionary noninvasive treatment that relieves incontinence by strengthening the muscles in your pelvic floor. With Emsella, you can live your life fully again.
Reasons for incontinence
There are numerous reasons for stress or functional incontinence. A major physiological cause is weak pelvic floor muscles that don’t fully support your bladder or bowel. If you’re a woman, childbirth can weaken and separate key muscle groups in your pelvis.
Urinary incontinence also frequently occurs after menopause. Estrogen levels drop precipitously during menopause. Estrogen loss is correlated to weaker pelvic floor muscles, leading to inadvertent bladder leakage from just a slight pressure such as coughing or sneezing.
Men also suffer from stress and functional incontinence as well as urge incontinence, when your bladder contracts suddenly. Emsella can help both men and women.
What is Emsella and how does it work to relieve incontinence?
Emsella is a noninvasive answer to incontinence for many people. You sit in a special chair with your clothes on. Emsella uses electromagnetic energy to stimulate pelvic floor muscle contractions.
These teach your muscles to contract again when needed. Emsella strengthens your muscles and reaches muscle groups that Kegel exercises cannot.
Each Emsella session takes approximately 30 minutes. During that time, Emsella produces approximately 11,000 pelvic floor muscle contractions. You feel a tingling sensation during the treatment, but it’s not painful.
Does Emsella really work to relieve incontinence?
In preliminary studies, 95% of Emsella patients report satisfaction with the results. Three-quarters of patients say they reduced pad usage due to a leaky bladder. In short, Emsella patients experience more bladder control.
The treatment has achieved the following goals in early studies:
- Improvement in urge incontinence
- Reduced use of pads to line underwear
- No need to plan ahead for where to find a bathroom
- Laughing, sneezing, coughing, or picking up a gallon of milk doesn’t produce bladder leakage
- Ability to resume normal daily activities without worrying about incontinence
How does Emsella help sexual health?
By reactivating pelvic muscles, you may be able to reach sexual satisfaction more easily and experience more intense sensations. Emsella may improve intimate times with your partner.
How many Emsella sessions do I need?
Emsella recommends six sessions, spread out twice a week for three weeks. There’s no downtime after treatment. You walk out of the office and resume your day. You’ll notice a difference in the coming weeks.
