Emsella Q & A

What is BTL Emsella?

BTL Emsella is a noninvasive treatment for urinary incontinence or the loss of bladder control. Urinary incontinence is a common problem that affects millions of people in the United States, especially women.

There are many causes of urinary incontinence, but weak or damaged pelvic floor muscles are among the most common. BTL Emsella treats incontinence by rehabilitating weak muscles and restoring neuromuscular control. 

BTL Emsella is a chair that you sit on while remaining completely clothed. The chair treats your entire pelvic floor, delivering painless electromagnetic stimulation that causes your pelvic muscles to contract. This tones the muscles of your pelvic floor the same way Kegel exercises would, but much faster and to a greater extent.

Who is a good candidate for BTL Emsella?

BTL Emsella is FDA-approved to treat incontinence in women and men. You may be a suitable candidate for this treatment if:

  • You leak urine during exercise 
  • You leak urine when you cough, sneeze, or laugh
  • You developed incontinence after vaginal childbirth
  • You notice worsening urgency incontinence and urine leakage since menopause
  • You developed incontinence since receiving treatment for prostate cancer

The best way to find out if BTL Emsella is right for you is to schedule an appointment with Dr. Parkhurst. 

What should I expect from BTL Emsella treatment?

First, Dr. Parkhurst carefully reviews your symptoms and medical history and performs a physical exam to ensure you’re a good candidate for BTL Emsella. Then, he develops a personalized treatment plan based on your specific needs. 

Every patient is different, but most benefit from about six treatment sessions scheduled twice per week. Treatment sessions usually last about 30 minutes each. 

Treatment with BTL Emsella isn’t painful, but you may feel tingling in your pelvic floor muscles as they contract during the procedure. Your clothes stay on during treatment. Afterward, you can resume normal activities without any downtime for recovery. You may notice results right away, but improvement typically continues over the next few weeks.
