One of the leading causes of painful urination for women is a urinary tract infection (UTI). Now this problem has a solution offered by vConfidence Certified Doctors in Glendale and Surprise, AZ. This non-invasive procedure is designed to treat UTIs without downtime.
What are Urinary Tract Infections (UTI)?
The urethra transports urine outside the body from the bladder. If bacteria such as E. coli invade the urethra, it creates a problem that can infect the bladder and/or kidneys. The result is a urinary tract infection.
How to Diagnose a UTI?
Some symptoms of a urinary tract infection include the urgency to urinate, tenderness in the lower abdomen and dysuria, which is urine that is painful or difficult to pass. These symptoms are commonly found in non-pregnant, healthy adult females. The reliability of a UTI diagnosis based on these symptoms and the female’s condition is correct over 90 percent of the time.
The standard diagnostic tool for UTIs in Glendale and Surprise, AZ, is a midstream culture. This technique is used most often to collect a urine specimen. It is important to follow strict instructions for collecting the specimen to lessen the chance of contaminating it with introital bacteria. Women should wash with an aseptic solution to get midstream urine that is clean enough for culture.
How Do vConfidence Certified Doctors in Glendale and Surprise, AZ, Perform UTI Treatments?
If you are in pain or experiencing discomfort or burning during urination, it is possible that you have dysuria. If so, there is a strong possibility that you also have a urinary tract infection. To alleviate symptoms of the infection and to treat UTIs, vConfidence Certified Doctors in Glendale and Surprise, AZ, use an in-office procedure that involves tissue-regenerating radio frequency lasers, also known as fractional CO2 lasers.
During the procedure, a laser delivers energy that is tightly controlled by inserting a probe into the vaginal canal. A tiny area of tissue is removed at the point of contact. You will not feel any pain even as a pinhole sized area is created.
Through the healing process, the body stimulates cells that create healthy tissues to replace the damaged ones at the site where the pinhole dot was created. Collagen fibers are regenerated to restore elasticity and hydration within the vaginal mucosa. The promotion and stimulation of these fibers rejuvenate the vagina by attacking vaginal atrophy, which is the underlying cause of most UTIs.
