In and around the Las Vegas area, and all over the United State, many women experience incontinence, and many keep their condition a secret. At vConfidence, our vaginal health specialists perform quick, non invasive vaginal rejuvenation treatments to relieve the symptoms of urinary incontinence.
What Is Urinary Incontinence?
Urinary incontinence occurs when the body’s natural production of collagen slows down. This prevents muscles from regenerating, which can cause the structures of the vagina, bladder, and urinary tract to become lax and allow urine to leak. This most often occurs after pregnancy or menopause as levels of estrogen start to drop. It can also happen after a vaginal birth even in the absence of a significant change in hormone levels. Age, genetics, trauma and certain medical conditions or treatments can also affect the muscle tone of the bladder and urinary tract. At vConfidence, we pinpoint the underlying cause of the incontinence in order to recommend the most appropriate treatment for your specific issue.
Vaginal atrophy occurs when the body does not produce enough hyaluronic acid to stimulate the production of natural collagen. Vaginal atrophy is often accompanied by urinary incontinence. There are several types of urinary incontinence:
- Urge incontinence is characterized by a sudden, uncontrollable urge to urinate.
- Stress incontinence is bladder leakage that occurs during physical exertion, such as when you laugh.
- Overactive bladder, also known as OAB, occurs when the bladder has trouble storing a normal amount of urine, which results in frequent, sudden urges to urinate.
- Overflow incontinence is urine leakage that occurs without you even feeling a sensation of urgency telling you that you need to urinate.
How Does vConfidence Treat Urinary Incontinence?
At vConfidence, we offer both radiofrequency and CO2 fractional laser treatments to alleviate the symptoms of incontinence. These techniques are designed to activate and transform dormant cells within the vaginal lining into cells that produce collagen. The additional collagen helps to reinvigorate and regenerate the tissues of the structures that control the flow of urine. These treatments are non-surgical and do not require downtime.
What Are the Results?
The majority of patients notice an improvement in their incontinence symptoms within a week following their treatment. We do recommend a series of three treatments over a three-month period for the best results.
The majority of postpartum and menopausal women experience incontinence. Even young women may experience bladder leakage following a vaginal birth. Treatments are available to help end the embarrassment of incontinence and restore your confidence. Contact vConfidence today for more information or to schedule a consultation.
