If you have weak pelvic floor muscles, you may experience a number of symptoms including urinary incontinence or prolapse, since pelvic floor muscles play an important role in supporting pelvic organs and controlling continence. Furthermore, pelvic muscles play a critical role in sexual function and orgasm. Weakened muscles may significantly affect these. The common presentation of weak pelvic muscles is urinary incontinence which can profoundly affect your quality of life and lead to bladder accidents, making you nervous when you are running errands, going to work, or spending time with your friends. Physiological changes can contribute to the development of urinary incontinence; changes such as vaginal delivery, menopause, and aging can decondition pelvic floor muscles. In order to improve symptoms, it is important to strengthen these muscles. Possible ways to improve your condition may include lifestyle changes and Kegel exercises. And now, there is a much better solution in EmSella!
What Is EmSella?
EmSella is the HIFEM® procedure, that utilizes electromagnetic energy, at a high frequency, to cause pelvic floor muscle stimulation completely non-invasively. Similar to the contractions you perform when doing a Kegel exercise. What makes this treatment effective is the in-depth penetration and stimulation of the entire pelvic floor area. A single session brings you thousands of intense contractions that you would not be able to do on your own (“at least 12,000 supramaximal high intensity Kegels”). These contractions are very helpful when it comes to muscle strengthening and re-education.
If you are interested in addressing weak pelvic floor muscles and associated symptoms, come see us at Glo & Spa-rkle MedSpa for a consultation to see if you are a candidate for the treatment, after which you will undergo a series of easy treatments at our office over 3 weeks.
What is the EmSella treatment like?
During BTL EmSella treatment you will be completely clothed yet, we recommended loosely fitted clothing to help achieve best positioning during treatment. When the treatment starts you will feel slight tingling and vibrations in your pelvic floor muscles that will then turn into full contractions. This will be completely comfortable and tolerable. If not, please let your healthcare provider know and they will adjust accordingly. Take this 28-minute session to relax, read a magazine, or watch television. You will be able to return to normal activities after the treatment. It is recommended to complete a total of about six treatment sessions. You’ll need to get two sessions every week for 3 weeks. You may experience a positive change in your urinary issues after you finish your initial appointment, and your ability to control your bladder should continue to get stronger during the next several weeks.
What Types of Urinary Problems Are There?
There are a number of different incontinence issues that can cause you to have difficulty controlling your bladder.
If you have this type of urinary issue, putting pressure on your bladder will cause you to develop leaking issues. For example, you might have leaking problems when you sneeze, cough, or laugh. In addition, you could experience this issue while you are exercising or when you are picking up a very heavy object.
This type of incontinence issue may cause your bladder to feel full after you urinate. In addition, urine may leak out of your bladder while you are sleeping, and you may struggle to empty your bladder when you visit the bathroom.
When you have urge incontinence, you will feel strong and sudden desires to use the bathroom. For example, you might have to get up from your desk and make frequent visits to the bathroom while you are at work. In addition, you might have to repeatedly urinate during the night. These frustrating urges can cause you to lose sleep and feel very tired in the morning.
This health problem will cause you to experience the symptoms of both urge and stress incontinence. In particular, you will have pressure-related leaking issues and feel the need to frequently urinate.
Why Am I Experiencing Urinary Issues?
Sometimes, you will experience urinary issues because your pelvic floor muscles have become weak. The muscles in this location help you control your bladder and support the organs in your pelvis. As you get older, these muscles may become damaged, and you might experience urinary problems. Delivering a baby or going through menopause can also weaken these important muscles.
In addition to changes in your pelvic floor muscles, other health problems can cause you to experience urinary incontinence. If you are a man, developing an enlarged prostate could lead to incontinence issues. This may also occur after prostate surgery. Further, you might develop this medical issue after you get a urinary tract infection or become constipated. Treating these health problems may improve your bladder control and relieve your negative symptoms.
How Does EmSella Work?
EmSella will use electromagnetic energy to enhance the condition of your pelvic muscles. When you sit on our specialized device, this energy will cause your pelvic floor muscles to quickly contract. These beneficial movements are called supramaximal contractions. As you continue to receive treatments, these contractions will cause your muscles to become stronger, and you should have an easier time maintaining control over your bladder.
Will This Treatment Cause Me To Feel Uncomfortable?
You shouldn’t worry about feeling discomfort during any of your EmSella sessions. When you sit on our specialized device, you will feel a mild sensation of tingling as your pelvic floor muscles contract. This feeling will be very comfortable, and you can read a book, listen to music, or do other enjoyable activities while this device is addressing your urinary challenges.
Will I Need To Change My Schedule After I Receive This Incontinence Treatment?
Our sophisticated device will use an efficient, non-invasive technique to strengthen your muscles and relieve your negative symptoms. As a result, you will not need to make adjustments to your work schedule, childcare responsibilities, or other aspects of your routine. Instead, you will be able to continue doing your normal activities while you are completing your treatment plan.
Who Should Consider Getting EmSella?
If you are a man or woman who is struggling to control your bladder, you may be a good candidate for this treatment. Also, men and women of all ages may use this treatment as preventive measure by getting the EmSella treatments despite not having pelvic floor weakness and associated symptoms. Additional benefits of pelvic muscle strengthening, and reconditioning include improved blood flow to the pelvic floor muscles and improved pelvic muscle strength and tone. This may result in improved sexual function, and better orgasms in both males and females.
Before we use this technique to strengthen your muscles, we will need to go over your medical history and discuss the specific type of pelvic problems that you have been experiencing.
During this discussion, you should be ready to describe the frequency and severity of your accidents, leaking issues, and other challenges. If you are eligible for this treatment, we can schedule your first session after this consultation is complete.
