BTL Emsella: The Pelvic Floor Makeover to Treat Your Incontinence
Do you often ask yourself this question when incontinence hits you? Incontinence is a condition often misunderstood by non-sufferers. Its discomfort is something that only sufferers can intimately comprehend. It can become very inconvenient to not be able to hold your urine in. It might even get embarrassing if there are leaks.
Ageing, childbirth and menopause can all lead to incontinence. Ageing can cause the tissues of the pelvic floor muscles to weaken as collagen is lost over time. Meanwhile, childbirth can cause the pelvic floor muscles to overstretch. The involuntary leakage of urine is common amongst women; it can lead to social embarrassment and even avoidance of intimate relationships.
10-40% of Singaporeans suffer from urinary incontinence. The pelvic floor acts as a hammock across the pelvis, providing a harness and support for the lower organs. Thus, when it loses it tightness to hold in shape, you can see why urine will leak out. Indeed, it is important to keep your pelvic floor in the best shape possible.
BTL Emsella Treatment
BTL Emsella is a deep, penetrative pelvic floor muscle stimulatory workout using HIFEM technology. It is able to pass through the skin to reach the deep pelvic floor muscles, inducing 12,000 supramaximal, intense contractions at a focused area to re-educate the pelvic floor within 28 minutes.
Studies have shown that 95% of women who have had the Emsella treatment are satisfied with their results. After receiving the Emsella treatment, 65% of patients did not experience any urine leaks even after doing extreme exercises! 75% of patients also experienced a reduction in incontinence pad use.
Emsella is a remarkable option for women who desire a lasting solution to their urinary incontinence issues – including postnatal mothers and active women suffering from incontinence. This is the reason why many women choose Emsella. Emsella is non-surgical, non-invasive and painless. It gets the job done and bypasses the difficulty of finding the pelvic floor muscles.
Typical Emsella Treatment Session
Emsella is a relaxing treatment. All you have to do is to sit down on a chair and let Emsella do all the work for you. It is really that simple! As you have to remove all electronic devices during treatment, you can even consider it as a short digital break for some quiet meditative down-time!
Once you have found your perineum to position on the chair, the magnetic field decolonises the motor neurons which fire the pelvic floor muscles to move at a much higher rate than your brain can command them to move. The magnetic field exercises the muscles beyond the point where voluntary human activity can. This strengthens your pelvic floor, growing them to become strong and healthy again in a short time via extreme exercise with the help of technology. Six sessions are recommended to achieve the optimal results – twice each week. However, many patients claim to feel results after just the first session!
Clinical studies have shown that patients maintain their results six months after treatment. Usually, only maintenance (top-ups) is required thereafter, if and when required. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle and doing Kegels will also help to keep you going better!
