Non-invasive treatment for urinary incontinence with BTL Emsella
Urinary incontinence is an embarrassing and often uncomfortable condition that people usually avoid talking about even though it’s common. According to studies, approximately one-third of women experience some level of urinary incontinence. There are many contributing factors to urinary incontinence, yet one thing remains consistent – it can significantly impact your quality of life. Fortunately, there has been a breakthrough in the non-invasive treatment of urinary incontinence. BTL Emsella treatment from Avante Medical Center, LLC in Anchorage, Alaska, is an FDA-approved method that can help strengthen pelvic floor muscles to prevent the unintentional release of urine.
About Urinary Incontinence
Urinary incontinence is the accidental or unintentional release of urine from the bladder. The bladder relies on the pelvic floor muscles to hold urine and release it when necessary. Over time, as these muscles weaken, whether due to age, pregnancy, or other factors, the muscles may allow the release of urine without warning. Often, these unintentional releases occur during moments of stress, such as laughing, jumping, coughing, or sneezing.
There are three main types of urinary incontinence:
- Stress incontinence: urine leaks during moments of stress, such as laughing, jumping, coughing, or sneezing.
- Urge: an intense urge to urinate that leads to involuntary leakage
- Mixed incontinence: is a combination of the two
What causes urinary incontinence?
Urinary incontinence can occur because of an underlying medical problem such as diabetes but can also occur due to changes that occur with pregnancy or menopause. Some of the risk factors for urinary incontinence include:
- Family History
Mechanism of Action: BTL EMSELLA is the HIFEM®
BTL Emsella is a revolutionary treatment for urinary incontinence that uses electromagnetic energy at high frequency to stimulate contraction of the pelvic floor muscles to strengthen them and allow them to control the bladder better.
It’s a simple, in-office procedure that takes less than 30 minutes. During treatment, patients will sit fully clothed in a special chair while the machine goes to work, providing pelvic floor contractions. Just one BTL Emsella session is equivalent to doing thousands of Kegel exercises. The recommended series of Emsella treatments is six sessions, two times per week.
