Incontinence is the loss of bladder control. When a patient has mild incontinence, he/she can experience urine leaks while sneezing, coughing or laughing. In moderate to severe cases, this can happen while standing up or bending over. This can result in a change of behaviours for patients, including a fear of socialising outside of home, and cessation of sports activities and exercising. Relationships with friends and family members may also be affected. It is estimated that urinary incontinence affects about 10-20% of women in Singapore and some males.
Urinary incontinence is usually treated by strengthening the pelvic floor muscles. The pelvic floor muscles support the bladder, urethra, womb and bowels. When these muscles weaken, it becomes harder to control urine, faeces or wind, resulting in urine leaks. It can happen to people as young as 20.
Treatment for Urinary Incontinence
The most commonly recommended treatment for urinary incontinence is kegel exercises which strengthen the pelvic floor muscles. However, for those who feel that kegel exercises are difficult because of age and time constraints, BTL Emsella is a proven alternative solution that works to give your life back!
Emsella is an FDA-approved, non-invasive procedure to strengthen pelvic muscles. It is a breakthrough treatment for incontinence that can boost your confidence and reduce the number of pads used. This unique technology revolutionizes the health and wellness of incontinence patients. It is the first innovative technology that multiple studies have proven able to treat incontinence and intimate discomfort safely.
High-Intensity Electromagnetic (HIFEM) Technology
Emsella uses HIFEM technology to create in-depth stimulation of 11,200 muscle contractions to re-educate the pelvic floor muscles and restore neuromuscular control in them. These supramaximal contractions induce volumetric growth of the muscles and are beneficial to urinary incontinence patients. Emsella is a practical solution to give your weak pelvic floor muscles a jumpstart!
This treatment is suitable for people who leak urine while exercising, coughing, sneezing, or even just standing up. Mothers may also benefit from Emsella as the process of giving birth can weaken the pelvic floor muscles. Indeed, results of Emsella treatment have also been encouraging for men.
A Typical Emsella Treatment
The entire Emsella treatment is painless, apart from slight tingling sensations at the area of the pelvic floor muscles from contractions in that area. It makes for an easy treatment while sitting down, and you may resume your daily activities immediately after the treatment.
Each treatment is a short-30 minute session, and the entire package consists of 6 treatments. Improvements can be observed after a single treatment and results typically continue to improve over the next few weeks.
