Age, childbirth, and even menopause can lead to urinary incontinence and vaginal laxity in women. At his practice in Holmdel, New Jersey, Magdy Nasra, MD, PC, can help you regain control of your pelvic floor and avoid leakage and accidents with a groundbreaking new treatment called BTL Emsella™.
What is urinary incontinence?
Urinary incontinence occurs when your bladder leaks during exertion. Most women experience this condition while:
Hormonal changes as you age often lead to urinary incontinence, but the condition most commonly affects women after childbirth, as the increased laxity in the vaginal tissues can spill over the anterior wall of the vagina and impact bladder function.
What is BTL Emsella?
A breakthrough treatment in urinary incontinence, Emsella is an advanced chair that uses a high-intensity electromagnetic field to stimulate the motor neurons in your pelvic floor.
The treatment is entirely noninvasive and painless, penetrating targeted tissues and pelvic muscles to stop urinary incontinence and reverse the signs of vaginal laxity.
One Emsella session lasts just 28 minutes and activates about 11,200 pelvic contractions — the equivalent of 11,200 powerful Kegel exercises. This tightens tissues, builds up muscle strength, and creates new support for your pelvic organs to improve urinary continence and restore sexual satisfaction.
While each treatment is less than 30 minutes long, you need two sessions a week for three weeks to see dramatic results.
How does BTL Emsella work?
A truly noninvasive urinary incontinence technology, BTL Emsella restores strength in your pelvic muscles while you’re still fully clothed. All you have to do is sit in a chair and let the device work its magic.
Emsella then releases a high-intensity electromagnetic field to stimulate your pelvic floor muscles, stimulating thousands of supramaximal contractions — powerful contractions that you can’t activate voluntarily — to help tighten your pelvic muscles and reduce urinary incontinence.
Throughout the procedure, you feel your pelvic muscles contract. You’ll likely feel a tingling sensation throughout your pelvis, but the treatment shouldn’t be painful or unbearable.
What will my recovery look like?
Emsella is completely noninvasive and requires no downtime, so you can even fit a treatment in during your lunch break and return to work immediately after. The procedure is quick, painless, and effective.
Every patient is different, but you should feel the effects of your first Emsella treatment working right away. As you continue coming back for subsequent treatments, your urinary incontinence and vaginal laxity dramatically improve.
By the end of your sixth session, your pelvic muscles will feel much stronger, and it should be easier to get through exercise, a cough, or a sneeze without leakage.
