Urinary incontinence occurs when your bladder leaks during exertion. This is usually caused by problems with the muscles and nerves that help the bladder hold or pass urine.
While very embarrassing, this can be a temporary condition caused by certain drinks (caffeine and alcohol), foods (chocolate and spices), or even medications (heart and blood pressure medications, sedatives, and muscle relaxants). It can also be caused by a urinary tract infection or constipation.
Certain health events unique to women, such as weight, pregnancy, childbirth, and menopause, can cause problems with these muscles and nerves. Some of the risk factors would be your gender (women are more prone), age, weight, family history, smoking and certain diseases.
Male urinary incontinence can also involve prostrate problems or treatments. Drinking alcohol can make urinary incontinence worse. Taking prescription or over-the-counter drugs such as diuretics, antidepressants, sedatives, opioids, or nonprescription cold and diet medicines can also affect your symptoms. By gaining control over the muscle that supports the entire pelvic region including the bladder, rectum, and prostate, the benefits of EMSELLA include regaining control over the bladder, ending urinary incontinence and improving sexual functioning
Fear not! A new treatment is being offered. The EMSELLA from BTL Aesthetics is the first device of its kind – an FDA approved chair that uses a high-intensity electromagnetic field (similar to an MRI) to activate motor neurons in the pelvic floor and treat urinary incontinence, fully clothed.
This is a great option for both men and women of any age whose life has been impacted by urinary incontinence. The treatment is entirely noninvasive and painless, penetrating targeted tissues and pelvic muscles to stop urinary incontinence and reverse the signs of vaginal laxity. You can sit and relax in the EMSELLA chair, fully clothed
One session lasts just 28 minutes and activates about 11,200 pelvic contractions — the equivalent of 11,200 powerful Kegel exercises. This tightens tissues, builds up muscle strength, and creates new support for your pelvic organs to improve urinary continence and restore sexual satisfaction. Just two sessions a week for three weeks to see dramatic results.
Ninety-five percent of patients have significant improvement! Emsella’s ® ability to strengthen pelvic muscles may also enable patients to better enjoy intimate relationships due to muscle strength and increased sensation.
EMSELLA harnesses the power of focused electromagnetic technology, called HIFEM, to stimulate the entire male pelvic floor muscle. As a result, patients attain greater neuromuscular control over the pelvic muscle. By gaining control over the muscle that supports the entire pelvic region including the bladder, rectum, and prostate, the benefits of EMSELLA include regaining control over the bladder, ending urinary incontinence.
