Urinary Incontinence

What is urinary incontinence?

Urinary incontinence is an inability to control urination. Although men can experience urinary incontinence, the condition is far more prevalent in women. An estimated 30% of women between the ages of 30-60 live with some level of urinary incontinence.

Numerous factors cause urinary incontinence, including:

  • Pregnancy and childbirth
  • Obesity
  • Hysterectomy and certain other procedures
  • Menopause and lower estrogen levels
  • Medical issues like stroke and multiple sclerosis

 

The aging process can also increase your chances of developing bladder control issues.

What is FemiLift and how does it treat mild urinary incontinence?

FemiLift is an FDA-approved laser treatment that improves your bladder control by prompting your body to create new tissue. The process is swift and straightforward. There’s no need for anesthesia, no pain, and no recovery time.

Sessions last approximately 15 minutes. The treatment probe delivers carefully controlled heat that renews deeper tissue layers. That heat tightens existing tissue fibers and prompts your body’s natural healing response.

New collagen is produced, which has the effect of tightening the tone, strength, and elasticity of your vaginal walls. The new cells also give you greater control over urinary leakage.

A FemiLift treatment is a great option for mild urinary incontinence. Examples include leaking a small amount of urine when laughing or coughing and occasional leakage when you feel your bladder is full or shortly after urinating. If you have severe urinary incontinence, like if you find yourself leaking large volumes of urine or having bladder control issues on a nearly constant basis, a different approach may be necessary.

What other conditions can FemiLift treat?

One of the biggest advantages of FemiLift is the value gained from the brief treatment sessions. Not only can treatments improve mild urinary incontinence, but there are also numerous other benefits that occur, including:

  • Relief from vaginal dryness
  • Thicken vaginal wall
  • Increased vaginal elasticity
  • End to painful intercourse
  • Tightening of loose vaginal tissue
  • Improving the appearance of hyperpigmentation
  • Enhanced sensation during sexual intercourse

 

For many women, FemiLift treatments deliver results that restore a healthy and fulfilling sex life, something that is central to overall health and wellness.

How long do FemiLift results last?

You can expect your treatment outcomes to last for several years, but additional vaginal changes are normal as you move through the aging process. If you notice an increase in urinary incontinence or vaginal changes over time, schedule a maintenance session to extend your results.
