If your quality of life has suffered due to symptoms of urinary incontinence, EMSELLA may be able to help. Patients at the Bader Medical Institute of London trust EMSELLA as a remedy for frequent urination and lack of bladder control.
What Is EMSELLA?
EMSELLA is a non-invasive, in-office procedure to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles to reduce or eliminate urinary incontinence. These muscles can gradually lose their strength over time from:
- Excess weight
The EMSELLA device emits high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy. When HIFEM reaches the pelvic floor muscles, it places them under controlled stress, causing them to contract repeatedly. These supramaximal muscle contractions are much stronger than Kegel exercises and typically provide more noticeable, faster, and longer-lasting relief from symptoms of urinary incontinence.
Who Is a Good Candidate for EMSELLA?
EMSELLA can be a game changer for most men and women who are otherwise in good overall health but struggle with constant, sudden, and intense urges to urinate. In addition, this treatment can be helpful for momentary lapses in bladder control during common pelvic floor muscle stressors such as:
- Heavy lifting
Incontinence can be of particular concern during sleep and intimacy as well. EMSELLA treatments have helped many of our patients finally get a full night’s sleep and have the boost in self-confidence they’ve been looking for.
Prospective candidates who are pregnant will need to wait on EMSELLA. Also, since this procedure involves electromagnetic energy, it is not a good fit for patients with a copper IUD, metallic hip implant(s), or a pacemaker.
What to Expect During an EMSELLA Session
On the day of your session, feel free to wear your everyday clothing and even bring a book to read. The EMSELLA device resembles a large plastic chair. Once you are seated comfortably, the machine will emit HIFEM energy for about 30 minutes. You will notice pelvic floor muscle contractions and a slight tingling sensation, but you shouldn’t feel any discomfort.
What to Expect After an EMSELLA Session
Once the session is over, you’ll be able to carry on with the rest of your day with no downtime. You may experience a mild degree of soreness in your pelvic region for just a day or two.
When Will I See Results?
You may notice a difference right after your first appointment. However, most patients require an initial series of sessions to accomplish maximum improvements. Patients can then schedule a follow-up session every nine to twelve months to maintain consistent bladder control.
How Much Does EMSELLA Cost?
The cost of your EMSELLA treatment will depend on the number of sessions you elect to receive. A specific price can be calculated during your consultation once your personalized treatment plan has been created.
