Although many women are embarrassed to talk about it, incontinence is an incredibly common issue that affects countless women throughout their lifetimes. The certified doctors at vConfidence are authorities when it comes to vaginal health and offer a wide variety of laser treatments that will treat the symptoms associated with urinary incontinence.
What is Urinary Incontinence?
At vConfidence, our trained specialists will treat the symptoms of urinary incontinence while curing the underlying issue that is causing this problem. For many women, urinary incontinence occurs after giving birth vaginally. Urinary incontinence can also occur when a woman experiences a reduction in estrogen production. Estrogen levels begin to drop following pregnancy and menopause. For some women, incontinence can result from certain cancer treatments such as chemotherapy.
Urinary incontinence can also be the result of genetic factors or aging. For some women, the muscular tissues of the bladder and urinary tract lose strength and elasticity over time as collagen production slows down with age. As a result, the urinary tract is weakened, resulting in urinary incontinence.
Urinary incontinence can occur as a result of reduced levels of hyaluronic acid. As women age, the body can begin to produce less hyaluronic acid which leads to a dramatic drop in collagen levels. When this occurs, a woman experiences vaginal atrophy. Urinary incontinence is extremely common in women with vaginal atrophy.
There are different types of urinary incontinence that include:
Stress Incontinence – when the bladder leaks urine as the result of exertion or physical activity
Urge Incontinence – when you experience a sudden urge to urinate
Overflow Incontinence – when you accidentally urinate while unaware of the need to urinate
Overactive Bladder – when the bladder has difficulty storing urine, resulting in frequent and sudden urges to urinate
How does vConfidence Treat Urinary Incontinence?
Our certified doctors at vConfidence treat urinary incontinence permanently with Viveve™ radio frequency and a CO2 fractional laser. These special devices revitalize dormant fibrocytes that exist in the vaginal mucosa. Our technique transforms these cells so that they can once again produce collagen, reinvigorating and regenerating vaginal tissue. When these tissues are regenerated, the flow of urine is once again under control. As a result, incontinence is fully treated without the use of surgery. This simple procedure requires no downtime.
What Are The Results?
Patients who are treated for incontinence at vConfidence experience significant relief after just the first treatment. Patients will be treated three times over the course of three months. Following the final treatment, urinary incontinence will have been fully treated.
Most postpartum and post-menopausal women experience a form of incontinence. Even young women who have recently given birth vaginally can experience leakage of urine. The good news is that incontinence doesn’t have to negatively affect your life forever. Thanks to the trained specialists at vConfidence, you can finally get your life back without fear of leaking urine.
