Urinary Incontinence Q & A

by James Meyer, MD

If you desire better control of your bladder, it’s time to try the breakthrough treatment that is changing the lives of women around the world.

Do you...

  • Wonder when the next “accident” might occur
  • Plan your outings and errands around a nearby restroom
  • Wake up in the middle of the night because you “have to go”
  • Take a few extra pads wherever you go “just in case”


Millions of women suffer silently, feeling frustrated and embarrassed about their urinary incontinence

Imagine if you could reduce or eliminate leaking without surgery or kegel exercises that often don't even work.

The good news is you don't have to dream about freeing yourself from urinary incontinence any longer!

All it takes are a few comfortable in-office visits, so you can start...

  • Enjoying long trips or shopping sprees without worrying if there is a restroom nearby
  • Exercising without wetting a pad
  • Playing or picking up the kids - or grand-kids - without suffering an accident
  • Laughing, caughing, sneezing, or jumping without leaking
  • Feeling more energized and rested in the morning because you didn't get up to pee 3-4 times


What Is Urinary Incontinence

Women all around the world experience an embarrassing condition called urinary incontinence. This condition is also referred to as  stress incontinence, leaky bladder, overactive bladder, and urinary urgency or frequency.

This means the bladder does not hold urine effectively and sometimes leaks, either from physical exertion, simple daily activities, or both.

For example, you might experience urinary leaking when:

  • Exercising
  • Laughing
  • Coughing
  • Sneezing
  • Jumping
  • Running
  • and more


BTL Emsella to the Rescue

BTL Emsella is an FDA-approved, non-invasive, non-surgical solution for urinary incontinence. It is a revolutionary treatment that uses high intensity electromagnetic wave technology to give you back bladder control.


BTL Emsella targets the weak muscles of the pelvic floor with electromagnetic waves to strengthen the muscles from the inside out.

These stimulating waves tighten the muscles, restoring the necessary support of the pelvic area, including the bladder.

You can notice a remarkable decrease in urinary urgency and accidental leaking almost immediately, restoring your confidence to do the things you enjoy – without constantly having to change pads or panicking whether you are going to make it to the bathroom.

By strengthening your pelvic floor, you gain better control of your bladder and you will experience a remarkable improvement in your quality of life.

Why Urinary Incontinence Happens

The most common reason women start to experience urinary incontinence is due to the stretching and increased laxity of pelvic tissues, which causes the bladder to sag over the anterior wall of the vagina.

This is a common condition after giving birth to a child or when hormonal changes occur. Unfortunately, hormonal changes are part of the natural aging process.

If you’re dealing with any sort of bladder leakage or urinary incontinence, including a neurogenic bladder or an overactive bladder, BTL Emsella may be the right treatment for you.


How Does the BTL Emsella Treatment Work

The BTL Emsella is the first treatment of its kind. It is an outpatient treatment you can receive in a medical office.


The BTL Emsella treatment:

  • Uses high-intensity electromagnetic field waves similar to an MRI
  • Uses these waves to activate motor neurons in the pelvic floor
  • Is delivered by comfortably sitting on an ergonomic chair fully clothed
  • Penetrates the tissue of the pelvic floor, building up support for the pelvic organs


The BTL Emsella treatment is so powerful that during one short 28-minute treatment, it will stimulate 11,200 pelvic contractions, which is equal to 11,200 Kegel exercise repetitions!

After just a few sessions 67% of patients who received the BTL Emsella treatment decreased the use of hygienic pads for incontinence or eliminated them completely, while 95% reported a significant improvement in their quality of life!


What About Kegel Exercises

Kegel exercises are intended to strengthen the muscles of the pelvic floor.

However, many women who suffer from urinary incontinence are unable to properly perform kegel exercises. Mainly, because the muscles around the pelvic floor are too weak or atrophied.

So in many cases, kegel exercises are not effective to reduce or eliminate “accidents”.

On the other hand, the BTL Emsella can do the work for you and effectively at a rate of over 11,000 kegels in 28 minutes without effort from your part.


The BTL Emsella Experience

If you are ready to take back control of your bladder without pain or negative side-effects, you will love BTL Emsella.

You’ll come into our medical office, sit - fully clothed - on the ergonomic chair, and just relax as the device does all the work for you!

You can read a book or magazine to pass the time. Just sit back and relax!

A typical BTL Emsella treatment takes around 30 minutes. To experience significant improvement, 6 sessions are recommended, scheduled twice a week.


BTL Emsella Recovery

BTL Emsella is non-invasive and non-surgical, thus requires absolutely no recovery.  You may resume regular activities immediately after treatment.


Is BTL Emsella Painful

You’ll experience mild, easily managed contractions or tingling of the pelvic floor muscles.

Patients report no discomfort or pain during the treatment. On the contrary, the tingling sensation is very tolerable and you get used to it in just a few minutes.

The intensity can be adjusted to suit your tolerance.


Results Are Quick and Dramatic

Many patients experience immediate results which improve even further with subsequent treatments. For best results, we recommend 2 treatments per week for 3 weeks – a total of 6 treatments. 


Am I the Right Candidate for BTL Emsella

BTL Emsella is perfect for women seeking relief from urinary incontinence or stress urgency and would like to strengthen their pelvic muscles to regain control of the bladder.

Additionally, as a result of stronger pelvic muscles, you’ll sleep better at night, stress less in the day, be more confident in your bladder, and experience an overall increased quality of life.
