Stress incontinence is a type of urinary incontinence or unintentional release of urine. Women with this type of incontinence notice bladder leakage when they laugh, cough, sneeze or engage in physical activity.
The primary cause of stress incontinence is weakened pelvic floor muscles, which are the tissues that hold your bladder in place and control the release of urine. Childbirth can lead to weakened pelvic floor muscles, and high impact exercise, obesity, and chronic coughing can also play contributing roles.
Some women experience a slow increase in stress incontinence. For others, loss of bladder control occurs immediately after childbirth. There are surgical solutions that can help, but for women who want results without the risks associated with surgery, EMSELLA offers an excellent alternative.
EMSELLA is a noninvasive treatment for urinary incontinence that works by strengthening your pelvic floor muscles. This in-office therapy works by using electromagnetic technology that stimulates your pelvic floor muscles. EMSELLA is FDA-cleared for treating urinary incontinence.
This is a process similar to Kegel exercises, which you can perform on your own to help strengthen your pelvic floor muscles. There is no comparison, however, to the level of stimulation that EMSELLA delivers as compared to traditional Kegels.
EMSELLA engages all of your pelvic floor muscles, without any effort on your part. During a normal treatment session, it stimulates your pelvic muscles with thousands of contractions, a rate simply unattainable through any other treatment or exercise routine.
The EMSELLA process is simple and straightforward. There’s no need for advance preparation, and you can remain fully clothed during sessions. There is also no need for any type of anesthesia or downtime.
The Transformed Med Spa of Frederick team performs EMSELLA treatments while you sit on a special chairlike device, often called the Kegel throne. Sessions take around 30 minutes to complete, and you can read, listen to music, or just take time to relax during your appointments.
You might notice a tingling sensation and pelvic floor contractions during your appointment, but there is no pain and no discomfort. You can resume normal activities immediately after your appointment.
You may notice improvements after your first session, but it may take a series of around six sessions to achieve optimal results. The best way to maintain the improvements achieved by EMSELLA is with routine at-home Kegel exercises.
