Urinary Incontinence Treatment
EMSELLA Treatment for Urinary Incontinence
The BTL EMSELLA chair is a revolutionary treatment for both men and women.
It is thought that more than 7 million women suffer with urinary incontinence in the UK.
This can be caused by ageing, childbirth, menopause to name a few and this is often an embarrassing and hidden problem.
What is Urinary Incontinence?
Urinary Incontinence is an involuntary leakage of urine as a result of a weak pelvic floor.
This can happen at times when the bladder in under pressure such as jumping, laughing, sneezing or coughing. This is known as stress incontinence.
It can also happen when you feel a sudden intense urge to pass urine and you often can’t quite hold on – sometimes known as latchkey incontinence as it can often happen as we try to open the front door - although it can happen at other times too. This is known as urge incontinence
How does the ESMELLA chair work?
It utilises High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic technology (HIFEM®) within the seat of the chair. This causes stimulation to the deep pelvic floor muscles and restoration of neuromuscular control.
One single 28-minute session gives more than 11,000 pelvic floor contractions equivalent to carrying out more than 11,000 Kegel (pelvic floor) exercises.
The treatment is non-invasive and painless and involves sitting, fully clothed on the seat of the chair.
Who can have EMSELLA treatment?
EMSELLA is a great option for women and men of any age who desire a solution for urinary incontinence and improvement in their quality of life.
How long does the treatment take?
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.
What does it feel like?
You will experience tingling and pelvic floor muscle contractions during the procedure. You may resume daily activities immediately after the treatment.
When will I notice results?
You may observe improvement after a single session. The results will typically continue to improve over the next few weeks.
