Urinary incontinence refers to a loss of control over the bladder, and it often occurs with older age. However, many women experience it after pregnancy as a result of weakened pelvic floor muscles.
While incontinence is a common problem, it can be distressing and embarrassing for many. Thankfully, there are many treatment options available to resolve it. The surgical route involves treating the external skin to prevent leakage, but many patients would rather avoid the risks and complications of surgery. This is why Emsella, a non-invasive solution for incontinence, is an exciting advancement in treating this condition.
What is Emsella?
Emsella is an innovative, FDA-approved treatment for urinary incontinence. It’s a gentle, non-invasive treatment that utilizes advanced technology to help women regain their urinary health.
The treatment works by stimulating the pelvic floor muscles using non-invasive electromagnetic stimulation. The stimulation triggers thousands of contractions per second, which improves the patient’s control over the pelvic floor muscles and bladder release.
Since Emsella gets to the root of urinary incontinence, weakened pelvic floor muscles, it’s a long-lasting solution to the condition. Unlike surgical treatments for incontinence, it resolves the cause of the problem so that it can be reversed.
What To Expect From Treatment
During Emsella treatment, patients may feel tingling and pelvic floor muscle contractions. But, it’s not a painful or uncomfortable procedure. Plus, there’s no downtime required after the procedure, so you can return to your regular activities immediately.
The expert team at Watt Plastic Surgery will customize the Emsella treatment to fit your needs. Patients typically undergo two 30-minute sessions per week for 3 to 4 weeks for optimal results. Improvement of incontinence is usually noticeable after just one session but will continue to improve in the coming weeks.
