One of the most common issues affecting women and their intimate health these days is urinary incontinence. And over the years, while there have been many treatment methods that are designed to treat urinary incontinence, many of them aren’t nearly as effective as they might claim to be. However, the team at Long Island Dermatology is excited to introduce the revolutionary Emsella treatment! This unique device has been able to revolutionize women’s intimate health and wellness, providing much-needed relief from incontinence, with limited downtime, side effects or risks as its a completely non-invasive option.
Women’s Intimate Health and Incontinence
While it might not always be the most common topic of conversation women’s intimate health issues are all too common these days and something many women are seeking relief from. Pelvic floor muscles are the layers of muscles that work to support the pelvic organs and will span the bottom of a patient’s pelvis. Having strong pelvic floor muscles will give women more control over their bladder and bowels. When the pelvic floor muscles are weakened, it means the internal organs are not fully supported and it can cause patients to have issues controlling the release of urine, and making them constantly feel as though they have to go to the bathroom.
What is Incontinence?
Urinary incontinence is defined as the involuntary release or leakage of urine. There are generally three different type of urinary incontinence:
Stress Incontinence – When there is exerted pressure on the bladder that causes leakage, this can be when coughing, laughing, sneezing or even exercising.
Urge Incontinence – Is the sudden, intense urge to urinate frequently.
Mixed Incontinence – Is the combination of both stress and urge incontinence.
What Causes Urinary Incontinence?
Urinary incontinence is most commonly caused as a result of weakened pelvic floor muscles because pelvic floor muscles play an important role in supporting the pelvic organs and controlling urinary incontinence. In addition, certain changes in a woman’s life can lead to furthering urinary incontinence such as vaginal delivery, menopause, as well as aging – all of which will decondition the pelvic floor muscles over time. Emsella offers patients, both women and even men, of any age, an incredible treatment for their incontinence issues.
What is Emsella?
One of the latest breakthrough treatments for urinary incontinence, Emsella offers patients the relief they have always wanted, in a completely non-invasive method. According to recent surveys done on Emsella patients, 95% have reported experiencing relief from their urinary incontinence issues using Emsella.
How Does Emsella Work?
Emsella is a revolutionary device that uses a handheld applicator to deliver electromagnetic energy to create thousands of supra maximal pelvic floor muscle contractions within only a single session. These contractions will work to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles faster than any other method of incontinence treatment, and offer benefits to these muscles that would usually take months to achieve within only a few session.s
How Long Does Emsella Treatment Last?
As with any other similar treatment, it is an individualized process and can differ from patient to patient. A typical session will generally take about 30 minutes or so, and patient are recommended to undergo about 6 total sessions – general scheduled twice per week for 3 weeks, in order to see the best possible results.
How Does Emsella Treatment Feel?
The beauty of the Emsella treatment is that its completely non-invasive and offers patients relief with no downtime, side effects, risks or recovery period involved. Patients will generally report limited symptoms or issues as well, and have reported only issues such as tingling sensations and the feeling of the actual pelvic floor contractions – pain and discomfort free.
Results with Emsella
Patients have reported seeing amazing results after only one session with Emsella, as the pelvic floor muscles have been greatly strengthened. However, for maximum improvement it will generally take approximately 6 total sessions as you continuously see benefits over a few weeks time.
