What is Urinary Incontinence?
Urinary incontinence is described as the involuntary release of urine. This may range in severity from minor leakage to a complete and sudden emptying of the bladder. Urinary incontinence can occur in patients of all ages, but older women tend to be disproportionately affected.
What Are the Symptoms of Urinary Incontinence?
An infrequent or occasional leakage of urine does not necessarily mean that you have urinary incontinence. Many of us have had experiences where we laughed so hard that we literally peed our pants. Urinary incontinence comes into play when the bouts are so frequent and/or severe that your day-to-day quality of life is affected.
As part of the diagnostic process, urinary incontinence is categorized as:
- Functional, meaning that an individual has a medical or mental health condition that interferes with making it to the bathroom in time, such as having had a stroke or living with Alzheimer’s
- Urge-based, which indicates the person has an intense and sudden need to urinate and cannot make it to the bathroom in time
- Stress incontinence, in which you experience leakage when you sneeze, laugh or otherwise place pressure on the bladder
- Overflow incontinence that is caused when you are unable to empty your bladder completely
An individual may have one or more types of urinary incontinence.
What Are the Benefits of Treatment for Urinary Incontinence?
- Emotional, such as improved confidence and comfort in social situations
- Hygiene, such as being able to keep underwear clean
- Quality of life
How Does Treatment for Urinary Incontinence Help?
As the leading provider of FemiLift™ treatments in the United States, we use this technology to rejuvenate the tissues of the vaginal area. Thickening these tissues often helps to resolve urinary incontinence symptoms. In some cases, O-Shot® is used in conjunction with FemiLift™.
What Should I Expect During My Treatment for Urinary Incontinence?
The FemiLift™ procedure is quick and comfortable. A handpiece is used to gently warm the tissues of the vaginal canal. No downtime is needed.
What Should I Expect After My Treatment for Urinary Incontinence?
The thermal energy of the FemiLift™ treatment may cause some swelling of the tissues immediately, so you may notice a little improvement right away. Collagen production can take several weeks. Our staff will schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your progress and determine if a second treatment is needed. In most cases, one treatment with FemiLift™ is adequate, but this does vary by patient.
Is Treatment for Urinary Incontinence Right for Me?
If urinary incontinence is interfering with your daily life and you are noticing changes in your behavior, we recommend that you schedule a complimentary consultation with Medical Director, Cheryl Schaaf to discuss your options.
Does Insurance Cover the Cost of Treatment for Urinary Incontinence?
The cost of treatment for urinary incontinence varies, so we can discuss this information at the time of your consultation. In the meantime, feel free to explore our financing options through CareCredit®.
