What is Urinary Incontinence?
Women can take control over their lives once again through a variety of procedures offered by vConfidence Certified Doctors that address the underlying issue of urinary incontinence. Urinary incontinence can affect women between the ages of 20 and 40 who have recently had a traditional vaginal birth. After both pregnancy and menopause, estrogen levels are reduced which can also cause incontinence. Estrogen levels can also decrease as the result of cancer treatment, trauma, age or a variety of genetic factors.
When estrogen levels decrease, the body’s ability to regenerate muscle tissue decreases as well. This can lead to a deficiency in the bladder and urinary tract function. Urinary incontinence is caused by reduced collagen production which can lead to vaginal atrophy. When estrogen levels drop off, the body produces less of the hyaluronic acid that is necessary for collagen production. Urinary incontinence is a common symptom of vaginal atrophy.
There are a few types of incontinence, including:
- Stress Incontinence – urine leaks from the bladder during physical exercise or exertion
- Urge Incontinence – a frequent and sudden urge to urinate
- Overflow Incontinence – the involuntary leaking of urine without realizing the need to urinate
- Overactive Bladder – when the bladder’s ability to store urine is dysfunctional, resulting in sudden urges to urinate.
How does vConfidence Treat Urinary Incontinence?
vConfidence Certified Doctors in Glendale and Surprise, AZ, offer a long-term solution to urinary incontinence with a CO2 fractional laser and a Viveve radio frequency device. This minimally invasive technique activates dormant cells in the vagina, allowing them to turn into fibroblasts (cells that make collagen). As a result, new collagen reinvigorates tissue along the urinary tract that controls the flow of urine. This procedure will treat urinary incontinence completely and it requires no surgery or downtime.
What Are The Results?
Three treatments are staggered over the course of three months. After the first treatment, most patients find relief from their symptoms. After the third treatment, urinary incontinence is usually fully treated.
