Urinary tract infections (also known as UTIs) are extremely common in women of all ages and are the most popular cause of pain during urination. At vConfidence, our certified vaginal health specialists can effectively and comfortably treat urinary tract infections with our non-invasive procedures.
What Are Urinary Tract Infections (UTI)?
Women have about a 50 percent chance of developing a urinary tract infection during their lifetimes, making this painful condition extremely common. A UTI is caused by bacteria like E. coli entering the large intestine and making its way into the urethra. From there, this bacteria can spread to the bladder and even to the kidneys.
How to Diagnose a UTI?
For women who are in good overall health and are not pregnant, the symptoms of a urinary tract infection such as painful urination, frequent urination and abdominal discomfort are reliable enough to confirm the presence of a urinary tract infection more than 90 percent of the time.
To make a proper diagnosis, a midstream urine culture test must be performed. This diagnostic technique involves collecting the urine midstream in order to evaluate the specimen. By following the proper directions for this technique, bacterial contamination is avoided. During this test, women must wash using an antiseptic solution before urinating and catching the urine midstream.
How Does vConfidence Perform UTI Treatment?
If you experience discomfort, burning or pain during urination, it’s likely that you have a urinary tract infection. At vConfidence, our certified specialists will treat the infection while completely eradicating the symptoms with a radio frequency technique or a fractional CO2 laser. Our laser technique painlessly regenerates tissue and normalizes vaginal pH (one of the primary causes of UTI). The procedure involves the use of a probe that is placed inside the vaginal canal to deliver steady, controlled energy. This procedure painlessly removes small areas of tissue that are no wider in diameter than a human hair. Once the body begins to heal itself, new cells create healthier tissue in and around the affected area. This new tissue stimulates new collagen growth, restoring elasticity and moisture within the tissue. This method treats vaginal atrophy, which is often the cause behind urinary tract infections.
