Did you know one in three women experience urinary incontinence? While a common occurrence, leaking urine isn’t a normal thing women have to look forward to because it can be treated. Learn the types of continence, what causes this problem, and how the FemiLift vaginal tightening laser treats mild female urinary incontinence.
Types of Female Urinary Incontinence
Most women experience stress incontinence, meaning they leak urine involuntarily when they cough, jump, laugh or sneeze. Any activity that puts stress on the bladder causes the unintentional loss of urine.
Other women have urge incontinence, which means they feel the need to go all the time and cannot stop their bladder muscles from contracting. Some women experience both conditions.
Treatments for Urinary Incontinence
One cause for incontinence stems from pelvic prolapse, meaning the muscles located around the bladder have weakened and sagged, pushing the bladder down. Multiple childbirths, oversized babies, smoking, weight gain, constipation or pelvic trauma all contribute to urinary incontinence. To treat prolapse, a hysterectomy may be required.
If your symptoms are less severe than a significant prolapse, your doctor may recommend vaginal laser tightening with FemiLift. Dr. Lynn Kowalski of Nevada Surgery and Cancer Care performs the treatment at her practice in Las Vegas, helping numerous women regain confidence in their daily life and free them from embarrassing situations that require a run to the ladies room.
If Kegel exercises just aren’t doing enough to treat your urinary incontinence, consult with Dr. Kowalski to see how FemiLift vaginal tightening treats not only your urinary incontinence but benefit your vaginal health, too.
