For countless women, urinary incontinence is an embarrassing problem that tremendously reduces the quality of life. Thankfully, the skilled specialists at vConfidence are experts when it comes to vaginal health and provides a variety of treatment options when it comes to urinary incontinence.
What is Urinary Incontinence?
Urinary incontinence has a variety of causes. At vConfidence, our certified doctors treat both the symptoms and the root cause. Many young women experience urinary incontinence after giving birth vaginally. Urinary incontinence is also frequently the result of low levels of estrogen that tend to drop off following pregnancy and menopause. Aging and genetic factors can also cause incontinence. Also, women may experience this condition following cancer treatments such as radiation therapy and chemotherapy.
Urinary incontinence is the result of weakened muscular tissue along the urinary tract. Factors like aging contribute to the weakening of this tissue. The body produces hyaluronic acid that stimulates the production of collagen. Muscular tissue requires collagen to maintain its strength and elasticity. Over time, the body ceases to create hyaluronic acid. As a result, collagen production decreases and vaginal atrophy takes place, leading to incontinence.
There are several types of urinary incontinence, which include:
Stress Incontinence – when exertion or physical activity causes the bladder to leak urine
Urge Incontinence – when you experience a sudden urge to urinate
Overflow Incontinence – when you suddenly leak urine despite not knowing that you need to urinate
Overactive Bladder – when the bladder’s ability to store urine is compromised, resulting in sudden urges to urinate
How does vConfidence Treat Urinary Incontinence?
Our certified specialists at vConfidence successfully treat urinary incontinence with a Viveve™ radio frequency device as well as a CO2 fractional laser. These devices are used to stimulate vaginal cells known as fibrocytes to regenerate into fibroblasts (collagen producing cells). As a result, collagen production is activated, reinvigorating tissue along the urinary tract. This non-surgical technique cures urinary incontinence in a way that requires no recovery time.
What Are The Results?
Patients will have three treatments over the course of three months. After just the first treatment most of our patients experience immediate relief. After the last treatment, your symptoms will be eradicated.
Most post-menopausal women experience a type of urinary incontinence, as do women who have recently given birth. Thanks to the certified vaginal health specialists at vConfidence, women don’t have to suffer from urinary incontinence forever. Our specialized treatment options will allow you to find permanent relief from your incontinence symptoms so that you may go back to living a full and active life without the fear of urine leakage.
