HOW DOES BTL EMSELLA WORK?
BTL EMSELLA’s revolutionary incontinence treatment uses electromagnetic energy to cause deep pelvic ﬂoor muscle stimulation without getting undressed! A single BTL EMSELLA session brings thousands of Kegel-like contractions which help you train your muscles without any eﬀort. Scientific research shows that 95% of treated patients have reported significant improvement in their quality of life.**
Key effectiveness is based on focused electromagnetic energy, in-depth penetration, and stimulation of the entire pelvic floor area.
A single HIFEM session brings thousands supramaximal pelvic floor muscle contractions, which are extremely important in muscle re-education of incontinent patients.
Incontinent patients are not able to perform high-repetition rate pattern due to pelvic floor muscles weakness.
HIFEM technology triggers intense PFM contractions by targeting neuromuscular tissue and inducing electric currents. Electric currents depolarize neurons resulting in concentric contractions and lift up of all PFM. Key effectiveness is based on focused electromagnetic energy, in-depth penetration, and stimulation of the entire pelvic floor area. This directly modifies the muscle structure, inducing a more efficient growth of myofibrils – muscle fiber hypertrophy, the creation of new protein strands and muscle fibers – muscle fiber hyperplasia. HIFEM technology causes deep PFM stimulation and restoration of the neuromuscular control.
THE ROLE OF THE PELVIC FLOOR MUSCLE
Pelvic floor muscles (PFM) are the group of muscles that support the pelvic floor organs and control continence. Due to the body’s normal aging, childbirth and menopause, PFM decondition and insufficiently support the pelvic floor organs. These conditions have a direct correlation to incontinence. Our incontinence treatment works to retrain the PFM, to help you regain control.
Incontinence is defined as an involuntary loss of urine. The International Continence Society defines 3 main types of incontinence according to the etiology. Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) involves urine leakage when events with increased intra-abdominal pressure are performed (e.g. coughing, sneezing, laughing, lifting etc.). SUI is caused by a loss of support of the urethra, and deconditioned PFM as a consequence of damage to the pelvic support structures. SUI is also strongly associated with vaginal childbirth and menopause. The second type is associated with a strong desire to void and pathological contractions of the bladder, so-called urge incontinence. Urge incontinence is a neuromuscular dysfunction and usually represents as a symptom of an underlying problem (e.g. diabetes mellitus). The third type is mixed urinary incontinence (MUI) and involves a combination of both the SUI and urge incontinence symptoms. In all 3 types, patients are not able to contract the PFM properly due to the muscle weakness, as in the case of SUI, or due to a pathological bladder over-activity, as is the case with urge UI.
BENEFITS OF BTL EMSELLA
- A non-invasive incontinence treatment procedure with no recovery time.
- Remain fully clothed during treatment.
- Restores bladder and pelvic muscle control without time-consuming exercises.
- A comfortable procedure that lets you relax during the 28-minute treatment.
- You may observe improvement after a single session. Results will typically continue improving over the next few weeks.
- Results after about six sessions, scheduled twice a week.
- Patients have reported a significant pad reduction.**
