BTL EMSELLA is a great option for women of any age who desire a non-invasive solution forurinary incontinence and improvement in their quality of life. Due to factors such as the body’s normal aging, childbirth or menopause, the pelvic floor muscles decondition and insufficiently support the pelvic organs. These factors directly correlate with urinary incontinence.
According to NAFC*, over 200 million people worldwide are affected by incontinence. Are you one of them? Take this quick test!
1 – Do you leak urine when you cough, sneeze or engage in sports activities?
2 – Do you need to go to the bathroom often?
3 – Have you refrained from intimate life in the last months out of fear of insecurity?
If you answered “yes”, you are probably suffering from urinary incontinence. BTL EMSELLA is the first device of its kind and is FDA-cleared for treating urinary incontinence in women.
BTL EMSELLA uses electromagnetic energy to cause deep pelvic floor muscle stimulation without getting undressed! A single BTL EMSELLA session brings thousands of Kegel-like contractions which help you train your muscles without any effort. Scientific research shows that 95% of treated patient have reported significant improvement in their quality of life.**
Postnatal stress incontinence is an incredibly common condition, even among women with normal births and no particular complications. This isn’t really surprising when you consider the strain the vagina childbirth puts on the pelvic floor muscles. When the pelvic floor muscles are working normally, they wrap tightly around the bladder and urethra to help hold the bladder tightly closed, and only relax when you consciously make the effort to. However, when these muscles are strained, weakened or damaged, such as during childbirth, they can’t hold the bladder as effectively. This results in the symptoms of stress incontinence after childbirth, including embarrassing leaks and dribbles when strain is put on the pelvic floor muscles or muscles in the abdomen. Common causes of this kind of strain include sneezing, laughing, coughing, high impact exercise, lifting heavy objects, to name just a few!
During pregnancy, the way the baby sits on the bladder can disrupt and strain the pelvic floor muscles, while vaginal birth can cause damage to the muscles due to the considerable pressure put on the area.
Post-natal incontinence affects many women after childbirth, but the muscles can usually repair themselves within a few months and symptoms will gradually disappear. Severe post-natal incontinence that doesn’t go away, however, is considered chronic (meaning it won’t go away without treatment), which is where Estrada Clinic and the BTL Emsella come in! Chronic post-natal stress incontinence is made more likely by smoking, having multiple vaginal births, having a long or problematic birth, being overweight, giving birth to heavier babies or giving birth over the age of 35.
BTL Emsella can help to improve the symptoms of stress incontinence by strengthening the pelvic floor muscles, and giving them increased overall muscle tone and strength.
Almost all women will experience symptoms of menopause at some time in their lives. The menopause affects almost all of the body’s systems, including your skin and hair, metabolism, the brain, digestive system, and genitourinary system (which is the system that contains the vagina and reproductive organs, as well as the urinary system and bladder). We also see a major drop in oestrogen levels in the body, which triggers a drop in collagen levels.
Collagen and elastin are the proteins in the body that give your skin and muscles strength and elasticity, which is vital to maintaining regular muscle tone. The decline in these proteins as women reach the menopause results in an overall loss in muscle tone, including the muscles in the pelvic floor. It can also trigger a variety of intimate conditions, including vaginal dryness and laxity, making intimate relationships complex and often knocking your confidence. Over 200 million people worldwide are affected by some form of incontinence, including incontinence after menopause. BTL Emsella can effectively treat symptoms of stress incontinence and rejuvenate the muscles in the area, by using electromagnetic technology to target the pelvic floor muscles. This technology causes the pelvic floor muscles to contract and relax, working them out in the same way you would any other muscle in the body.
This results in an overall strengthened pelvic floor and the improvement of muscle tone and symptoms of stress incontinence. This helps to prevent dribbles, leakages and embarrassing accidents at inopportune times, saving you from any concerns and worries, wherever you are.
BTL Emsella is such an effective treatment and so well-loved by our patients. It is one of the only FDA approved devices of its type and is completely non-surgical, unintrusive, and you don’t even have to get undressed. A BTL Emsella treatment only takes less than half an hour per session, and results can begin to be felts as soon as straight away after treatment, though most patients start to feel results after a week or two.
A common symptom of menopause is vaginal laxity, or looseness. This can make intimate relationships difficult, and decrease sensation during sex for both men and women. This can make it difficult to express yourself intimately and actually make sex less pleasurable for both partners. Vaginal laxity can also make it difficult for many female sufferers to become aroused or reach orgasm. Incidents of vaginal laxity also increase the likelihood of vaginal dryness, which can lead to pain and discomfort during sex, making it even more difficult to maintain a fulfilling sex life.
Many treatments that have traditionally been available to women to tighten the vaginal canal have been deeply invasive and surgical, such as vaginoplasty. These can be incredibly invasive, have the risk of infection, require anaesthetic and a stay in a hospital overnight. Fortunately, the new wave of non-surgical vaginal tightening treatments for women struggling with vaginal laxity is here, including BTL Emsella, available at Estrada Clinic. These treatments give our patients the opportunity to take back their sex lives and feel like their most confident selves without the need for surgical intervention.
As vaginal laxity is treated, sexual sensation for many women is improved. For many years, there weren’t any treatments available to help treat these conditions, even though they affect up to 25% of menopausal and post-menopausal women. By using HIFEM technology, BTL Emsella can treat vaginal laxity and give women their sexual satisfaction back. The HIFEM currents target the pelvic floor muscles and improve the overall health and strength of these tissues, as well as the tissues in the vagina and vaginal canal. This way, the treatment can help improve sexual function for women and their partners, by tightening the vaginal canal, and give our patients back their confidence, both in intimate relationships and in other parts of their life.

The results of BTL Emsella treatment can be seen as soon as after the first treatment in some women. However, we recommend a minimum course length of six to eight weekly treatments to see optimum results from the treatment, and most people see and feel results after two or three treatment sessions.
The procedure is not at all painful, and many people bring along friends or family to chat to during treatment. You may also want to bring a book or magazine to read while on the Emsella chair.
Some women feel the tensing and relaxing of the pelvic floor muscles during treatment, but this has been described as a very similar sensation to regular kegel exercises, and isn't uncomfortable.
A single BTL Emsella treatment takes less than half an hour - 28 minutes to be precise!
While some women will feel results after the first treatment, a minimum of six weekly or biweekly sessions is appropriate to feel the optimum results of BTL Emsella. We'll tailor your treatment plan to you and your body to create the most effective results.
If you are struggling with stress incontinence, BTL Emsella might be the perfect treatment for you.
BTL Emsella can improve the symptoms of stress incontinence caused by menopause or childbirth, as well as other intimate health conditions, including vaginal laxity and difficulty reaching orgasm.
However, if you are pregnant, have a pacemaker, have metal plates in your body, such as hip replacements or if you have a copper coil or IUD, then BTL Emsellais not suitable for you, and we can help give you the information you need to choose a different treatment in these cases. You should also remove any intimate piercings before treatment with BTL Emsella.
