Relief from incontinence with a painless laser or RF treatment that requires no anesthesia.
For a groundbreaking, minimally invasive treatment for mild and moderate stress urinary incontinence, vConfidence has the solution. Stress incontinence is the most common type of incontinence in women. It typically occurs when your bladder leaks urine during physical activity or exertion, though it can happen at any inconvenient moment, such as when you cough, lift something heavy, stand, laugh, change positions or even when you are exercising.
WHAT CAUSES STRESS INCONTINENCE?
The muscles around the opening of your bladder control urine flow by squeezing the passageway to prevent urine from leaking through the urethra. When those muscles get weak or do not work, urine can then pass through involuntarily when even just the slightest pressure or stress is placed on your bladder. For many women, stress incontinence is a source of stress itself, because one cannot know when an embarrassing situation caused by an unexpected incident of incontinence could happen next.
HOW DO WE TREAT STRESS INCONTINENCE?
The most common causes of stress incontinence include childbirth, surgery or an injury in the pelvic area, although some medications and generalized symptoms of aging can be associated to stress incontinence, as well as cancer treatment. Vaginal births and reduced estrogen levels in menopausal women also tops the list of causes of incontinence. In most cases, the fundamental underlying cause of weakened urine control is in the muscle tissue that controls the flow, and particularly it is due to a drop-off in collagen production in that tissue structure. vConfidence physicians treat incontinence by getting to the root of the problem with fractional CO2 laser or radio frequency procedures that trigger new collagen production with fibroblasts. This procedure regenerates your muscles and vital tissue, giving you more control.
HOW MANY STRESS INCONTINENCE TREATMENTS ARE REQUIRED?
The number of stress incontinence treatments required varies from 1-3 sessions, about 10 minutes each.
HOW MUCH DOES STRESS INCONTINENCE TREATMENT COST?
The average cost of treatment ranges from $975 to $1,175 per treatment.
DOES THE STRESS INCONTINENCE TREATMENT REQUIRE DOWNTIME?
Stress incontinence treatment requires no downtime.
WHAT ARE THE RESULTS OF STRESS INCONTINENCE TREATMENT?
Most patients experience initial symptom relief within the first week of treatment with the full effects being felt after your full course of treatment. Treatments are often three sessions scheduled one month apart. As the tissue that controls the bladder’s ability to properly fill, empty and self-regulate itself is regenerated and energized by new collagen growth factors, your symptoms of overactive bladder are also overcome and are replaced by increased self-control and a better quality of life.
HOW DOES STRESS INCONTINENCE TREATMENT FEEL?
vConfidence laser and RF treatments are pain-free. It does not require surgery or needles. Your provider uses a small probe to emit inside of the vagina at a very low energy. Most patients say that the pulses feel like a slight vibration.
STRESS INCONTINENCE TREATMENT INSTRUCTIONS
Before Treatment: A typical treatment averages 15 minutes of treatment time. You will be given specific pre-treatment instructions beforehand. Following your check-in, your vital signs will be taken. Once the procedure has begun, a sterile “insertion ring,” which is a circular device that allows the laser handpiece to be inserted and moved without rubbing against your skin, is placed into the vaginal opening. Once inserted, the laser will be activated, moved, then activated again in a short procedure that allows the entire inside of the vagina to be treated.
After Treatment: Immediately following treatment, you will be able to return to your regular activities. Your doctor will provide you with detailed post-procedure instructions, including when you can resume sexual activity. Most patients have no negative indications after treatment and experience immediate positive results.
