A woman’s body goes through many changes as she ages and goes through different phases of life. The most common complaint that women have, especially after giving birth, is urinary incontinence. Not feeling like you have full control over your bladder can be frustrating and even unsettling. Incontinence may be unavoidable for many women, but it doesn’t have to become your normal way of life. BTL EMSELLA offers a completely non-invasive way to treat incontinence in the comfort of our practice.
Many women feel uncomfortable when it comes to discussing their intimate areas. The thought of someone inserting a device to treat incontinence may be even more disturbing. We are very understanding of that at Lazur La Vie, which is why we offer EMSELLA at our practice in Nyack, NY. Contact us today to learn more or to schedule your consultation!
How Does EMSELLA Work?
The first thing you should know is that you can remain fully clothed throughout the entire treatment process. The EMSELLA device, also known as The Kegel Throne, is a chair that delivers supramaximal contractions to the entire pelvic floor. These contractions are much stronger and more effective than kegel exercises you can do on your own.
Who is a Good Candidate?
Many women notice what is known as stress urinary incontinence, which is when they experience leaking while putting stress on their pelvic floor. This stress can come in the form of coughing, sneezing, laughing, or working out. If you experience leaking while doing any of these activities, you may be a good candidate for EMSELLA.
Another common cause of leaking is childbirth. Women who have given birth vaginally experience significant stress to their pelvic floor. EMSELLA is effective in tightening this area, which can decrease urinary incontinence after childbirth. EMSELLA can also be a viable option for women who have gone through menopause and now experience leaking.
Women aren’t the only ones who can benefit from this treatment. This device has been FDA approved for incontinence in men as well. After a procedure like radial prostatectomy, some men begin to have occasional leaking. EMSELLA can actually help relieve this symptom, and return your life back to normal.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Depending on your needs and what you’re looking to achieve, you may benefit greatly from a monthly plan. Our professionals can work with you to develop a treatment schedule that fits your needs and helps you regain your quality of life.
