BTL Emsella by The Retreat Clinic
SITTING ON A PROBLEM
Whether it’s a result of age, childbirth, or menopause, over 200 million people are affected by urinary incontinence. As a matter of fact, the National Association for Continence claims that up to 45 percent of women with urinary incontinence develop intimacy issues, and as many as one in three women avoid athletic activity out of fear of an incontinence episode. However, up to 95 percent of patients treated with the BTL Emsella have, fortunately, found satisfactory relief from their intimate issue … simply by sitting on a machine that resembles a chair.
Painless and non-invasive, patients only have to sit on the machine by BTL Aesthetics to experience up to 75 percent in pad reduction. In the 28-minutes of treatment, the machine works to restore neuromuscular control by focused electromagnetic energy and stimulation of the entire pelvic floor area, which is pivotal in muscle re-education of incontinent patients. Here, a single session brings thousands of supramaximal pelvic floor muscle contractions akin to doing 11,000 Kegels, thanks to a proprietary High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy.
For those who experience leakage on a daily basis, the results are beyond just better bladder control, but also improved awareness and ability to contract pelvic floor muscles. “It is a life-changing treatment that also helps couples with their intimacy and boosts confidence,” says Dr Ong Jin Khang. Here, patients who have reported painful sexual intercourse as a result of not being able to produce enough lubrication, see an improvement as the treatment increases blood flow and sensitivity through repetitive muscular contraction, benefitting patients in more ways than one.
