EMSella from BTL Aesthetics
EMSella is the first device of it’s kind and is FDA-cleared for treating urinary incontinence and vaginal laxity in women. The BTL
EMSella is a chair that uses high-intensity electromagnetic field (similar to an MRI) to activate motor neurons in the pelvic floor.
While this type of treatment is selective and non-invasive, it offers deep penetration into the targeted tissues of the pelvic floor and stimulates the muscles. In as few as 3 weeks, patients strongly agree their incidence of stress urinary incontinence was improved by 95%!
Used for the Treatment of….
Many women experience a condition called stress urinary incontinence (SUI). SUI occurs when your bladder leaks urine during physical activity or exertion. It may happen when you cough, laugh, jump, sneeze, or exercise. SUI is most commonly caused by vaginal childbirth and hormonal changes due to age. The stretching and increased laxity of the tissues causes the bladder to sag over the anterior wall of the vagina, which can interfere with the proper function of the bladder when it is full.
How BTL EMSella Works
BTL EMSella is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment for stress urinary incontinence and urge incontinence. The treatment is delivered by comfortably sitting in an ergonomic chair fully clothed, where electromagnetic technology penetrates the targeted tissues of the pelvic floor and stimulates the muscles, building up muscle strength and restoring the support for the pelvic organs. In doing so, the pelvic floor muscles are strengthened and improved dramatically, the vaginal walls are tightened, urinary and urge incontinence is decreased and sexual satisfaction is increased.
