Urinary incontinence affects over 200 million people worldwide, but many suffer in silence, not realizing that help is available. Whether urinary incontinence is caused by weak pelvic floor muscles a common cause of incontinence or by a condition such as bladder cancer, the fact is that bladder leakage is incredibly embarrassing and can seriously impact your quality of life.
Fortunately, new advancements in intimate health treatment are helping to alleviate the problem for millions of men and women. Among the most cutting-edge treatments available is emsella, which is revolutionizing the way that incontinence is treated without the need for surgery or medication.
Emsella is an FDA-approved device that works by stimulating the deep pelvic floor muscles that have weakened due to age, childbirth and menopause. It is a safe, non-invasive and painless procedure that doesn’t use needles or sutures and is completely drug-free, meaning it will not interfere with your regular medications. During a session on the Emsella chair, which lasts about 28 minutes, you will sit upright and feel the electromagnetic energy stimulate your muscles. The device delivers thousands of supramaximal muscle contractions per session, which helps re-train and strengthen the incontinent patient’s muscles. The results are astounding: 95% of patients who receive emsella report significant improvement in their quality of life.
While emsella has been used for decades to treat bowel incontinence, the FDA recently approved it for treating urinary incontinence as well. The device works by strengthening the core and pelvic floor muscles, which will result in increased bladder control. In just six sessions, most patients see a marked improvement in their level of urinary incontinence, although results vary from person to person.
The good news is that emsella is not only effective but also quite affordable, especially when compared to the cost of hygienic pads or adult briefs. In addition, it is a FSA eligible expense, so you can use pre-tax dollars to pay for your initial set of 6 Emsella treatments at our med spa in Midtown Manhattan.
After the initial series of six emsella sessions, many patients choose to continue with maintenance sessions on an as-needed basis. We offer a package of maintenance treatments that is discounted 50% to bring the price down to $150 for each visit.
A consultation is needed to determine if you are a good candidate for emsella incontinence treatment, and we recommend that you wait at least six weeks between each session. This will give your body time to adjust to the changes and ensure that the results are lasting.
The best candidates for emsella incontinence are women and men of any age who want to strengthen their pelvic floor muscles and increase bladder control. While women tend to be more susceptible to urinary incontinence, it is important for all women to know that the device can help with both urge and stress incontinence, as well as mixed incontinence. Men with an enlarged prostate can also benefit from the treatment by reducing or eliminating their dependence on hygienic pads and urination aids.
