The BTL Emsella chair is a great option for women of any age who desire solution for urinary incontinence and improvement in their quality of life. The treatment is FDA approved in men and women. Patients who leak with cough or who have leakage with sudden urges to rush to the bathroom are candidates.
Your provider will tailor a treatment plan for you. A typical treatment takes about 30 minutes and you will need about 6 sessions, scheduled twice a week.
You will experience tingling and pelvic floor muscles' contractions during the procedure. Most of our patients remark that it is a feeling unlike any other. You may resume daily activities immediately after the treatment.
You may observe improvement after a single session. The results will typically continue to improve over the next few weeks.
Can I use Emsella if I work out? We have treated women who do crossfit or gym workouts who leak as they progress through their workouts. These women are in good shape. With Emsella, they were able to achieve supramaximal contractions that significantly improved or cured their leakage. No matter how hard you work out, you cannot get the same sort of muscle contraction that Emsella can achieve.
Can I use Emsella after having a baby? After a vaginal delivery, the pelvic floor undergoes significant stress and leakage can result. Emsella provides the high intensity supramaximal contractions that can revert your pelvic floor back to normal.
Can Emsella help if I rush to the bathroom, and sometimes don't make it? Options for leakage with urgency include dietary changes (less coffee and teas!) as well as medication. Most of our patients are frustrated with the thought of life long medication. The medications can be expensive, have side-effects, and are a band-aid for the underlying condition. Studies have shown that the muscles in post-menopausal women can be debilitated. With a full work up, Emsella could be an option.
