QUESTIONS ON YOUR MIND
WHAT IS THE EMSELLA?
BTL EMSELLA represents a new category of technology that provides a non-invasive treatment for pelvic floor muscles in incontinence and intimate discomfort. It uses high frequency (HIFEM) technology to trigger a huge action potential in the nerves surrounding the pelvic floor muscles to tell them to contract. This creates what's called a supramaximal contraction. During a 28-minute session the pelvic floor will contract over 11,000 times. The EMSELLA will recondition and strengthen the muscles in this area.
HOW CAN I BENEFIT FROM IT?
The BTL EMSELLA helps patients to restore the control of their bladder, pelvic floor muscles and eliminate incontinence or any kind of intimate discomfort in women. In men, the BTL EMSELLA can help eliminate incontinence, erectile dysfunction and 'after-dribble'. Secondly, BTL EMSELLA is a truly non-invasive procedure where patients remain fully clothed.
WHO IS THE RIGHT CANDIDATE?
Do you experience:
Rushing make it to the toilet in time?
Leaking when you run, jump, laugh or sneeze?
Waking up regularly during the night to urinate?
Before or after dribble?
Discomfort or pain during intercourse?
Erectile dysfunction or 'after-dribble'
If you answered YES to any of these, the EMSELLA could be a great option for you!
IS IT SAFE?
Yes! The EMSELLA Chair is TGA approved and represents the first innovative technology that has shown in multiple studies to treat incontinence and intimate discomfort.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Sessions cost $250 each.
Private health insurance does not currently cover any of the cost. (We're way ahead of the pack on this one and they haven't caught up with us yet).
But we have good news! The Australia Government has introduced the Continence Aids Payment Scheme (CAPS). This scheme can cover up to $635.10 towards your visits. You can check to see you're eligible by visiting: https://www.health.gov.au/initiatives-and-programs/continence-aids-payment-scheme-caps
HOW DO WE COMPARE TO OTHER TREATMENTS?
The EMSELLA chair is the only procedure that targets pelvic floor muscles and causes deep pelvic floor stimulation because of HIFEM®* technology. All other procedures such as intravaginal electrostimulation have a risk of burns and lack the effect as the electrical current treats tissue only superficially, not even mentioning the need to insert the disposable vaginal probe. Comparing to Kegels, patients are not able to properly contract pelvic floor muscles, build the routine to do Kegels at least 3x per day and do them in hundreds of repetitions to see some results.
