Bladder retention problems are common for many people, primarily women. Not only are bladder problems embarrassing, but they can severely hinder the quality of your life. Urination requires muscles to both contract or tighten and relax. The muscles are controlled by nerves that send signals telling the tissues to either contract or relax. Urine is often pushed out of the bladder and down into the urethra via muscle contractions. When this occurs, the sphincter muscles within the urethra relax. The urethra can then open and release urine.
Urinary Incontinence, or UI, occurs when those muscles become damaged, or the nerve signals become overactive. For many women struggling with incontinence, it often occurs after vaginal delivery / child birth. Additionally, it can also be caused by aging or menopause.
There are two primary types of Urinary Incontinence: Stress and Urge.
Stress Incontinence, also known as Stress UI, is urinary leakage caused by physical movement or exertion. Many people experience this leakage when they make swift movements like jumping, laughing, coughing, or even sneezing. This type of UI is the most common. It usually results after vaginal childbirth, although menopause can also be a contributing factor.
This kind of UI results when muscles that hold up the bladder are stretched or weakened. The breakdown in supporting tissue allows the bladder to press down on the sphincter. When the bladder’s weight is combined with physical exertion like coughing or jumping, the urethra muscles are forced to open, allowing urine to leak out.
The best way to improve Stress Urinary Incontinence is to strengthen the muscles that hold the bladder up. Kegels are the most effective way to rebuild and strengthen the tissues.
Urge Incontinence, Urge UI, is the sudden need to urinate followed by involuntary urination. This type of Urinary Incontinence occurs when the nerve signals responsible for telling muscles to contract or relax misfire. As a result, urge UI causes the overactive bladder muscles to overpower the sphincter muscles within the urethra.
Kegels are the best way to improve the pelvic floor and Urinary Incontinence. Most people living with this issue may wonder how Kegels can improve them. Kegels consist of voluntary muscle exercises that contract and relax the pelvic floor muscles. They work the same way as other manual strength-building exercises like crunches or lunges. Kegels contract the muscles of the vaginal floor, putting tension on the tissues. The body creates new muscle fibers and strengthens any existing fibers to adapt to this tension.
Emsella improves incontinence through the strengthening of the muscles that support the bladder. During treatments, the patient sits comfortably on an ergonomic chair. Patients remain fully clothed. The chair employs High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy stimulating powerful contractions within the pelvic floor. The neurons force the muscles to contract or tighten quickly, inducing several Kegel exercises.
Unlike manual Kegels, the contractions during an Emsella treatment are more powerful. One 30-minute Emsella session induces more than 11,000 supramaximal Kegels. The powerful contractions are scientifically proven to strengthen the pelvic floor tissues and tighten the vaginal wall muscles. As a result, not only do patients improve bladder retention, but it also improves vaginal laxity.
Emsella patients see an improvement in Urinary Incontinence symptoms after just one treatment. However, patients should follow a treatment schedule. Schedules typically consist of 6 sessions spaced 2 to 3 days apart for the best results. As with any cosmetic procedure, results will vary.*
The total Emsella cost varies. The prices are determined by several factors, including the number of sessions needed to achieve optimal results. The best way to find out how much Emsella will cost you is to schedule a complimentary consultation with [CLIENT].
