In this article Dr. Naraparaju answers patients’ frequently asked questions about this new treatment for urinary incontinence.
Is EMSELLA Safe?
Yes! EMSELLA™ is FDA approved for both women and men – and has revolutionized the treatment or urinary incontinence. EMSELLA™ technology offers an easy, effective, convenient and painless, non-invasive treatment option for bladder leaks.
Because it is noninvasive there is no pain, no risk of infection, and no known side effects or possible complications.
What Causes Urinary Incontinence?
Urinary incontinence is typically caused by a weakening of the muscles within the pelvic floor region, often a result of childbirth, menopause and the natural aging process. Although incontinence is extremely common, 5 out of 10 women do not seek help, according to the National Association for Continence (NAFC), which can have a dramatic effect on a woman’s self-esteem and confidence.
There are actually three different forms of urinary incontinence:
- stress incontinence: bladder leakage during physical activity, laughing or coughing
- urge incontinence: a strong, sudden & uncontrollable need to urinate
- mixed incontinence: a combination of stress and urge incontinence
How Does EMSELLA Treat Urinary Incontinence?
EMSELLA™ stimulates the patient’s entire pelvic floor area, strengthening weak pelvic muscles and restoring control to the nerves that control these pelvic muscles.
EMSELLA technology administers HIFEM (High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic) energy. These energy waves contract all of the muscles in the pelvic floor at once – creating thousands of “super Kegels” in less than a half hour. These rapid and intense – yet painless – pelvic floor muscle contractions re-educate the nerves and muscles that control bladder release.
The waves pass directly through the patient’s clothing, so there is no need to undress. It is not painful, so no anesthetic is needed.
What Results Can I Expect from EMSELLA?
Clinical studies on EMSELLA revealed that a full 100% of patients had better awareness of pelvic floor muscles after treatment. And an astound ling 95% of treated patients expresses satisfaction as well as significant improvement in their quality of life following six EMSELLA treatments.
Some patients may observe improvement after just a single session. Results will typically continue to improve over the next few treatments.
How Many EMSELLA Treatments will I need?
For optimal results with BTL EMSELLA™, Dr. Naraparaju recommends a series of six 28 minute EMSELLA treatments – twice-weekly.
Are there any other Benefits to EMSELLA?
Yes! Because EMSELLA increases local circulation in the pelvic area, patients frequently also experience increased sensitivity during intercourse.
