Urinary incontinence is when a person cannot control their bladder. The underlying cause of incontinence is a weakened pelvic floor, making it difficult for people to hold their urine. It disproportionally affects women more than men, possibly due to pregnancy, age, or a hormonal imbalance, such as during menopause.
Women with urinary incontinence likely experience embarrassment and a lack of confidence, causing them to limit their time in social settings or at work. Bucay Center for Dermatology and Aesthetics offers Emsella treatment in San Antonio, TX.
How Does Emsella Work?
The Emsella chair is a non-invasive treatment option that emits high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) waves to stimulate contractions in the pelvic floor muscles. Repeatedly contracting these muscles strengthens the pelvic floor and improves bladder control. Each treatment lasts about 30 minutes, and patients should receive two sessions a week for three weeks.
When Will You Experience the Results?
The results of Emsella vary depending on the person. Some patients experience improvements after just one treatment, while others may notice improvements after completing a few sessions.
You can experience many benefits from treatment with Emsella, including:
- It’s non-invasive, so there is no downtime.
- Treatment is simple and quick–you don’t even have to change your clothes.
- It strengthens your pelvic floor muscles naturally.
- It reduces your need for surgery or more invasive treatments.
