The Benefits of Pelvic Floor Strengthening Technology for Women's Health in Scotland
August 14, 2023
5 min read
Pelvic floor disorders, such as urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse, affect millions of women worldwide. According to recent studies, as many as 1 in 3 women in the UK will experience a pelvic floor disorder during their lifetime. These issues can significantly affect women’s quality of life and fortunately, advances in technology have made it possible to improve these conditions.
At Profile Aesthetic, we are excited to announce the introduction of our new Women's Health service, including pelvic health technology with Emsella. Our specialist will be offering detailed consultations to advise on a tailored management plan and for women requiring pelvic floor strengthening, the Emsella chair is available as part of treatment.
What is Pelvic Floor Strengthening Technology?
Pelvic floor strengthening technology, such as Emsella, is a non-invasive treatment that uses electromagnetic energy to stimulate and strengthen the pelvic floor muscles. The pelvic floor muscles play a crucial role in maintaining bladder and bowel control, and weakness or damage to these muscles can lead to urinary incontinence and other pelvic floor disorders. Emsella works by stimulating thousands of pelvic floor contractions to strengthen and tighten the pelvic floor.
The Benefits of Emsella
Emsella is a safe and effective treatment that is non-invasive. During a typical Emsella session, the patient sits fully clothed on a special chair that emits electromagnetic energy to stimulate the pelvic floor muscles. The treatment is painless, and each session typically lasts for around 30 minutes.
Studies have shown that Emsella can improve urinary incontinence symptoms in as little as 3 weeks, with long-lasting results. For optimal treatment, a full course of six sessions is usually required. Patients have reported a 95% improvement in their quality of life, with increased confidence and comfort, and a 75% pad reduction use.
Specialist Assessment and Treatment
While pelvic floor strengthening technology, like Emsella, can be beneficial for many women, it is important to undergo a specialist assessment to determine the most appropriate treatment. In some cases, women’s symptoms are related to over-activity of the pelvic floor muscles and Emsella treatment would not be appropriate.
Our women’s health specialist at Profile Aesthetic will work with each patient to create a personalised treatment plan, taking into account their individual needs and medical history.
At Profile Aesthetic, we are dedicated to women's health and providing the best possible care and treatment options. Our new Women's Health service, which includes pelvic floor strengthening technology like Emsella, is a huge advance for women in Aberdeen and the North East of Scotland. If you are experiencing pelvic floor issues, we encourage you to book a specialist assessment and learn more about the benefits of Emsella.
