Incontinence Q & A

What is urinary incontinence?

Urinary incontinence describes an inadvertent leaking of urine or full loss of bladder control. Women are nearly two times as likely to develop urinary incontinence compared to men, but both sexes can experience it.

If you have incontinence, you may leak urine when you jump, cough, sneeze, or laugh due to pressure on the muscles that have weakened with age or overstretching (as through pregnancy, childbirth, or with some surgeries). You may also experience extreme, sudden urges to urinate.

Urinary incontinence occurs when your bladder muscles tighten, but the sphincter muscles have lost the strength to pinch your urethra closed and prevent urine loss. As a result, you lose control of bladder function.


How is urinary incontinence treated?

At Evolve Aesthetics, you can take advantage of Emsella, a radical noninvasive treatment to resolve the symptoms of urinary incontinence. The electromagnetic technology stimulates activity in your pelvic floor muscles and restores muscle strength. In just one Emsella session, your pelvic floor muscles go through thousands of contractions.

The treatment re-educates the muscles, so they learn to contract on their own once again and prevent urine leakage. With Emsella, your pelvic floor muscles become stronger, and incontinence is resolved.


Why should I consider incontinence treatment with Emsella?

Urinary incontinence can be embarrassing and frustrating. It can keep you from doing all the activities you enjoy. Of those who’ve gone through Emsella treatment, 95% report an improved quality of life. Another 75% report a reduction in pad usage as a result of treatment.

The treatment is quick and easy. It requires no downtime following a session; you can go back to all your normal daily activities.


What happens during Emsella sessions?

During an incontinence treatment, you sit comfortably, fully clothed on the Emsella chair. The electromagnetic energy replicates the effect of more than 11,000 intense kegel muscle contractions.

Expect to feel a tingling sensation as the pelvic floor muscles contract during the procedure.


How many Emsella sessions do I need?

Many people notice an improvement in their urinary incontinence symptoms after just one session. These results continue to improve over the next few weeks.

Everyone is different; a nurse practitioner at Evolve Aesthetics will work with you to create a customized treatment plan suited to your individual needs. You may require up to six 28-minute sessions in total. These treatments are typically scheduled twice per week for three weeks total.
