Re-Train Muscles to Improve Quality of Life with Electromagnetic Technology in Denver
Millions of men and women around the world are affected by urinary incontinence, which is a loss of bladder control that results in involuntary bladder leaks. BTL Emsella® at Denver’s AboutSkin Dermatology and DermSurgery is a breakthrough non-invasive, non-painful, non-downtime treatment hat can help urinary incontinence. It bridges the gap between functional and aesthetic treatments as it has clinical trials documenting EmSella’s ability to help both female & male sexual function.It can improve sexual health by strengthening the pelvic floor and increasing blood flow to the genital region.
The embarrassing problem of urinary dribble is more common among older people due to aging of the bladder muscle, but it can also be caused by certain everyday habits, underlying medical conditions, and physical problems. For example, hormonal changes and the weight of a growing baby during pregnancy may contribute to stress incontinence. Vaginal childbirth, menopause, obesity, genetics, or prostate gland problems are other possible factors that can also increase the risk of urinary dribble and incontinence. Emsella® can help patients dealing with all of these situations.
How Does Emsella® Work?
Emsella is much more effective than exercises that you could do on your own. Emsella engages many muscles in your pelvic floor – all without pain or downtime. Traditionally, pelvic floor exercises are the recommended treatment for bladder leakage issues. Even though Kegel exercises are helpful, the Emsella® chair is significantly more effective and more engaging of reginal muscles overall. The Emsella® treatment induces thousands of supramaximal pelvic floor muscle contractions when a wave of high intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy is released. This actually leads to rapid strengthening of the muscle and improved bladder control.
In addition to treating urinary incontinence, Emsella® also supports sexual wellness for men and women — while supporting body strengthening in other areas, such as the core muscles.
Patients typically will do a series of these Emsella sessions. Each session is usually completed within 30 minutes. The treatment is comfortable, and there is no pain– but patients may experience a “tingling sensation” along with pelvic floor muscle contractions during the procedure. The contractions that are produced in just 30 minutes are the equivalent to doing 10,000 Kegel exercises in one sitting. Patients can remain fully clothed while they sit on the chair, and read a “paper” book or newspaper – but cannot be on a computer, tablet or phone.
Who Would Be an Ideal Candidate for Emsella®?
Emsella® is beneficial for men and women in any age demographic hoping to find a non-invasive way to help minimize urinary incontinence (caused by a weakened pelvic floor), and to also help with sexual function (as proven in validated questionnaires.). It’s a great option for patients who wish to get their life back to normal and no longer want their condition to interfere with exercise, intimacy, or other activities.
What Can You Expect from Emsella® Recovery and Results?
There is no recovery time or limitations on activities following a treatment, so patients can return to their usual activities right away after an Emsella® session. Around six Emsella® sessions will be typically needed, spaced out so that they are completed usually twice weekly. Some improvements will be noticeable after just one treatment, and patients will notice continual improvement over the subsequent weeks. Some patients have reported that Emsella® has the added benefit of providing improvement in core muscle tone and overall core strength.
Patients can also make lifestyle changes to help maintain the results from this procedure. For instance, carrying excess body fat has been shown to place more pressure on the pelvic floor, so it is best to maintain a stable, healthy body weight through a healthy diet and regular exercise. Cutting down on or avoiding alcohol and caffeinated drinks and doing Kegel exercises can also potentially help to minimize the issue of urinary dribbling.
