Is the Groundbreaking Emsella Treatment for Urinary Incontinence Right for You?

Women in Charlotte, North Carolina now have access to a brand-new treatment for urinary incontinence: Emsella. Emsella is a breakthrough treatment that’s non-invasive and non-surgical. Women are taking back their health, confidence, and lives with Emsella – without a single incision. Find out if Emsella is the right treatment for you, what to expect from the process, and where to find a provider in Charlotte.


Facts About Urinary Incontinence


Urinary incontinence is nothing to be ashamed about. It’s an incredibly common condition that affects approximately 68% of women ages 42 to 64. Younger women can also experience urinary incontinence for various reasons such as pregnancy, childbirth, medical conditions, and lifestyle choices. Urinary incontinence can lead to depression, loss of sexual intimacy, time taken off work, and hundreds of dollars in adult incontinence products per year. It can interfere with fitness, activities, sex, and your enjoyment of life. Don’t let this problem stand in your way any longer.


A bladder leak is part of normal life for millions of women – but it doesn’t have to be. Thanks to new advancements in technology, eligible women can now resolve their bladder leak issues and strengthen their pelvic floors without surgical intervention. How? With BTL Emsella by BTL Aesthetics. The first treatment of its kind, Emsella is FDA-approved for treating urinary incontinence along with vaginal laxity. Studies have shown Emsella to improve stress urinary incontinence (SUI) by 95%. It uses a chair with a high-intensity electromagnetic field to resolve bladder leaks.


How Can Emsella Help Women with Urinary Incontinence?


BTL Emsella is for women who experience leaks when something exerts pressure on the bladder, such as a cough, laugh, or sneeze. Leaks while exercising are also common with SUI. The most common causes of SUI are childbirth and the natural hormone changes that occur while aging and in menopause. Tissues in the body can stretch and become laxer, resulting in the bladder sagging over the vagina’s anterior wall. With SUI, a full bladder won’t function normally, resulting in leaks under stress.


Emsella addresses female urinary incontinence using a special chair that provides patients with a pelvic workout – all while they sit on the chair, fully clothed, and read a book or magazine. Women get a full pelvic workout in just 28-minute treatment sessions, without moving a muscle. Emsella works by delivering thousands of Kegel-like supramaximal contractions to the entire pelvic floor using FDA-approved, focused electromagnetic technology. It stimulates the pelvic floor muscles to restore neuromuscular control. After treatment, muscles can regain strength and control to put the bladder back in its original place – resolving urinary incontinence.


Emsella is a groundbreaking treatment for women with SUI. The most eligible candidates for this treatment are women with weak pelvic floor muscles. If you’ve tried Kegel exercises but they haven’t solved your problem, Emsella could be for you. Leaks when you do certain things, frequent or sudden urges to urinate, leakage that’s interfered with sexual activity, or SUI during menopause are all issues that Emsella could potentially resolve. If this sounds like the issue you’re experiencing, get to know Emsella.


Does Emsella Really Work?


BTL Emsella can sound too good to be true for women suffering with bladder leakages. A non-surgical treatment with a 95% success rate might seem like a gimmick. Luckily, it’s real, and the results speak for themselves. Real women provide testimonials to Emsella’s effectiveness, and ultrasound imaging of patients’ pelvic floors before and after treatment show scientific results. Stimulated pelvic floors after Emsella are higher, lifting the bladder back in place. After about six 28-minute sessions (or less), patients can regain their confidence and live like they did before bladder leakage.


Results with Emsella have been nothing short of extraordinary. Physicians around the country are amazed and impressed with just how effective this non-invasive treatment is for women with SUI and mixed forms of urinary incontinence. Many patients are calling Emsella a life-changing rehabilitation therapy, with extremely rewarding results. Not only are women loving the results – they enjoy the treatment sessions, as well. The relief Emsella could bring you might help you regain what bladder leakage has taken. Of course, results may vary. Ask your doctor if Emsella is the right procedure for you.


What to Expect from Emsella Treatment


The success of Emsella is only equaled by its convenience for patients. Your doctor will first meet with you, discuss your unique needs and health condition, and then custom-tailor an Emsella treatment plan just for you. In general, women will need one to six 28-minute sessions, scheduled twice per week. During a therapy session, you will sit on the special Emsella chair, fully clothed and comfortable. You can sit back and relax while the chair does the work for you, pulsing thousands of contractions to your pelvic floor per session.


The electromagnetic pulses (similar to an MRI) pack significantly more power than Kegel exercises, without you needing to move a muscle. The Emsella chair works harder than any woman could with Kegel exercises alone. It treats many types of urinary incontinence by fully stimulating all parts of the pelvic floor – not just one muscle alone. After Emsella sessions, patients can enjoy stronger muscles, greater neuromuscular control, and an end to bladder leakage.
