Gig Harbor, WA. –2022 –Dr. Lisa Ballantyne announces the introduction of a first of its kind treatment, BTL EMSELLA™– the only device available to target a woman’s entire pelvic floor region for the treatment of incontinence. This unique technology revolutionizes the women’s intimate health and wellness category by providing those suffering from incontinence with a completely non-invasive option.
The “chair” design of the device itself allows women to remain fully clothed for treatment, with no pain or downtime, so patients can walk out immediately following treatment.
Urinary incontinence is defined as the involuntary leakage of urine. There are three different types of urinary incontinence:
- Stress incontinence is when there is exerted pressure on the bladder causing leakage. This can be caused by coughing, laughing, sneezing, or exercising
- Urge incontinence is the sudden, intense urge to urinate frequently
- Mixed incontinence is a combination of both stress and urge incontinence
This might be a result of weak pelvic floor muscles since pelvic floor muscles play an important role in supporting pelvic organs and controlling continence. Physiological changes can contribute to the development of urinary incontinence; changes such as vaginal delivery, menopause, and aging can decondition pelvic floor muscles.
Each individual treatment is 30 minutes long and for best results, a minimum of 6 treatments with 2 treatments each week.
You will experience a tingling and contractions of your pelvic floor muscles. You can continue your regular activities immediately afterward.
You may notice results after the first treatment with continual results with each treatment.
