The BTL Emsella is a noninvasive treatment for stress urinary incontinence. It uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic technology (HIFEM) to stimulate muscle contractions in your pelvic floor—the layer of muscles stretched like a hammock below the bladder, uterus, and bowels.
During the treatment, patients sit comfortably in a chair in their regular clothes. The seat of the chair emits electromagnetic energy, which causes you to involuntarily contract your pelvic floor muscles 11,200 times in a single session. The chair focuses on targeted tissue in the pelvis, strengthening muscles and restoring the support of the pelvic organs. Strengthening your pelvic floor muscles can restore your ability to control your bladder.
The contractions are painless but more powerful than your regular kegel exercises. There’s no downtime after Emsella.
Emsella works best as a series of six sessions scheduled twice a week, with follow-up sessions every 6 to 12 months. Some patients see results after a single session, with improvements over time.
