The International Continence Society defines this problem as “involuntary loss of urine that is a social or hygienic problem”. According to the National Association for Continence, over 25 million Americans live with bladder leakage. It starts at only 1 in 4 women over 18 years old experience leakage but the incidence rises with age and with some estimates of over 50% of people affected. Pregnancy, childbirth, and menopause are also contributing factors to additional leakage.
What can be done? There are numerous options from kegels to pills to surgery. One exciting new option is the BTL EMSella. 95% of the patients reported significant improvement in their quality of life in recent scientific research.

Many women experience a condition called stress urinary incontinence (SUI). SUI occurs when your bladder leaks urine during physical activity or exertion. It may happen when you cough, laugh, jump, sneeze, or exercise. SUI is most commonly caused by vaginal childbirth and hormonal changes due to age. The stretching and increased laxity of the tissues causes the bladder to sag over the anterior wall of the vagina, which can interfere with the proper function of the bladder when it is full. Urinary incontinence commonly leaves the sufferer with psychological morbidity, particularly depression. Up to 23% of women take time off work because of their incontinence, and in some cases women with severe urinary incontinence can pay $900 annually for adult incontinence products. More than a third of women between 45 and 50 avoid athletic activities out of fear of an incontinence episode, and according to the NAFC, 54% of women with un-diagnosed incontinence report loss of confidence with 45% reporting a loss of sexual intimacy. These are struggles that women should no longer have to face. EMSella is the first device of it’s kind and is FDA-cleared for treating urinary incontinence and vaginal laxity in women.
What Is EMSella?
BTL EMSella is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment for stress urinary incontinence and urge incontinence. The treatment is delivered by comfortably sitting in an ergonomic chair fully clothed, where electromagnetic technology penetrates the targeted tissues of the pelvic floor and stimulates the muscles, building up muscle strength and restoring the support for the pelvic organs. In doing so, the pelvic floor muscles are strengthened and improved dramatically, the vaginal walls are tightened, urinary and urge incontinence is decreased and sexual satisfaction is increased. BTL EMSella is so powerful, during one short 28-minute treatment, BTL EMSella will provoke 11,200 contractions, which is equivalent to performing 11,200 Kegel exercises! While this type of treatment is selective and non-invasive, it offers deep penetration into the targeted tissues of the pelvic floor and stimulates the muscles. In as few as 3 weeks, patients strongly agree their incidence of stress urinary incontinence was improved by 95%!
