There are many potential side effects that come with childbirth, menopause, and natural aging. Any one of these can lead to incontinence, and patients need some sort of remedy. Fortunately, help is available at DermaNuva Skin Laser and Health in Olds, Alberta. We offer our patients a specific incontinence treatment called BTL Emsella®. Contact us today and schedule a consultation to learn more!
What is BTL Emsella®?
This is a completely non-invasive technology that treats incontinence by training and strengthening the necessary muscles. The treatment is highly-effective, clinically tested, and has a 95% patient satisfaction rate.
Incontinence often is the result of weakened pelvic floor muscles, which are necessary for bladder control. It is important to retrain these muscles and get them stronger so they can function properly again.
BTL Emsella® technology looks like a chair and is designed especially for patients seeking relief from incontinence. When the chair is activated, it delivers focused electromagnetic energy to the pelvic floor muscles. Over the course of multiple treatment sessions, the muscles are retrained.
How Does It Work?
When the electromagnetic energy is aimed at the pelvic floor muscles, it causes thousands of extremely rapid muscle contractions. These contractions are a special type of muscle contractions, called “supramaximal.” They are stronger than other methods, and this is extremely helpful for retraining and restoring muscle strength.
After triggering these rapid supramaximal contractions, the muscles will be allowed some time to rest and recover. In some ways, this is similar to what you would expect from a strength training session at the gym. You work the necessary muscles, then give them some time to recover, and they should naturally get stronger during the recovery phase.
After a set amount of time, another session will trigger more contractions, ideally leading to more strength and control. We will work with you to find the perfect treatment schedule for you.
What are the Benefits of BTL Emsella®?
It can be incredibly difficult to live with the uncertainty that comes with incontinence. On top of that, it can also be embarrassing. The condition frequently can become more severe if it is not addressed, and this can lead to a loss of self-esteem, confidence, and comfort in many cases.
Fortunately, incontinence isn’t a problem that you simply have to accept. With BTL Emsella® treatments, you have access to a non-surgical treatment that could change your life. It lets qualifying patients reclaim their control, confidence, and sense of security.
Some of the top benefits include:
- It is completely non-invasive
- Treatments are very time-efficient
- There is no recovery time needed
