BTL Emsella: 5 Frequently Asked Questions (And Answers!)

(Updated 3/4/2022)

BTL Emsella is a non-invasive, unique treatment option for weakened pelvic floor muscles that can give you fast results and increase your quality of life! Here are some frequently asked questions about BTL Emsella that you might have, and their answers.

1. What is BTL Emsella?

Emsella helps women with weakened pelvic floor muscles by using electromagnetic energy technology to strengthen those muscles. It works by sending thousands of supramaximal contractions to the muscles during each session. By stimulating the pelvic region, this device can help stop urinary incontinence and other symptoms related to this area of the body.

2. Is Emsella Right For Me?

Weakening of the pelvic floor muscles can occur at any time in a woman’s life. Incontinence is a common issue caused by this condition, too. It can happen after giving birth, while growing older, or even because of hormonal changes during menopause. If you are one of the 19 million women across the United States who struggle with the following symptoms, you can benefit from BTL Emsella!

  • Stress incontinence: This happens when stress is put on the bladder, usually when sneezing, coughing, or laughing.
  • Urge incontinence: This type of incontinence occurs suddenly and includes a frequent and intense need to urinate.
  • Mixed incontinence: This is a combination of both of the types of incontinence listed above.
  • Reduced sensation in the vagina
  • Pressure in the pelvic region
  • Difficulties with bowel movements (including constipation and leakage)
  • Pain during sexual intercourse

3. Emsella Looks Strange! Will The Treatment Hurt?

While patients report an increased awareness of their pelvic system, they consistently report no pain with the procedure. Even though BTL Emsella may look odd, it is a wonderful development for the treatment of urinary incontinence. The system is designed to send high-intensity, focused electromagnetic pulses to the pelvic floor muscles in thousands of contractions. These mimic Kegel exercises that must be done manually.

4. How Long Will The Treatment Take?

While each patient is different, you will likely have two half-hour sessions a week over the span of 4-6 weeks. After your first round of treatments, it is a good idea to follow up with your doctor to see how Emsella is working for you. This is a good time to assess whether you need more sessions. It is important to note that most patients report immediate results and many do not need treatments beyond the typical 4-6 weeks.

5. What Kind of Results Will Emsella Give Me?

According to clinical reports, 75% of patients indicated a reduction in pad usage. Also, 95% of patients reported a substantial improvement in their quality of life after completing treatments. Your results may vary, but many patients have even seen improvement after just one session.
