The leading cause of painful urination is a urinary tract infection (UTI). Women experience these infections commonly, and there is finally an approach that works. vConfidence provides women with a non-invasive, no downtime approach to the treatment of UTIs.
What Are Urinary Tract Infections (UTI)?
As a woman, the likelihood that you will develop a UTI is as high as 50 percent. A UTI occurs when the urethra, or the tract through which urine is transported from the bladder to outside the body, becomes overwhelmed by the bacteria present in the large intestine. The bacterial infection can at times move from the bladder all the way to the kidneys.
How to Diagnose a UTI?
When a woman is otherwise healthy and not currently pregnant, diagnosis can be made with the presence of symptoms alone. The symptoms include dysuria (painful urination), tenderness in the lower abdomen, and frequent or urgent urination. Ninety percent of the time these symptoms are enough for a conclusive diagnosis.
Should a diagnostic tool be utilized, a midstream urine culture will be used. Women should be thoroughly briefed on how to perform this method, from cleansing with antiseptic solutions and catching urine midstream to avoid contamination from introital bacteria.
How Does vConfidence Perform UTI Treatment?
If you are dealing with the discomfort of a urinary tract infection, vConfidence can treat the UTI and eliminate any symptoms of the infection by using tissue-regenerating radio frequency, or by using fractional CO2 lasers in a procedure that can be done in the office.
To perform the procedure, a device delivers controlled energy via a probe inserted into the vaginal canal. Through a painless process, the device emits gentle energy to initiate tissue restructuring. When the body works to repair itself, cells are stimulated to create tissue that is healthy, and collagen fibers are regenerated. This restores hydration and therefore elasticity inside of the vaginal mucosa. Vaginal atrophy is the underlying cause of most UTIs. This process of vaginal rejuvenation attacks this atrophy.
If UTIs are getting in the way of allowing you to enjoy your life, consider seeking relief with the assistance of vConfidence. When you are ready to get back to your normal, active life, do not hesitate to contact our office to schedule a consultation and discuss how this condition can be addressed with a quick, effective procedure.
