Constantly worrying about bladder leakage is no way to go through life. Even though urinary incontinence is common, affecting almost 40 percent of women in the U.S., this condition is not normal and warrants treatment!
Here’s a closer look at the different types of urinary incontinence, along with possible remedies.
If physical activity like running, coughing, sneezing, or laughing causes you to leak urine, you most likely suffer from stress urinary incontinence. If you frequently experience a sudden urge to urinate, followed by leakage, you probably suffer from urge urinary incontinence. Mixed urinary incontinence is a mix of both stress and urge urinary incontinence. Last, but not least, overflow incontinence is leakage that occurs as a result of a bladder that is always too full.
Depending on the cause and severity of your bladder leakage, a variety of treatments can help provide relief. A good place to start is kegel exercises, which can be done on your own any time of day to help strengthen your pelvic floor muscles. While kegels can help, further treatment is often necessary.
One of our most popular treatments is FemiLift™, a non-surgical laser vaginal resurfacing treatment. FemiLift uses laser energy to resurface the entire circumference of the vaginal wall, stimulating your body’s healing response. FemiLift also strengthens and tightens pelvic floor muscles, providing significant relief from urinary incontinence in many patients.
We often combine FemiLift with The O-Shot® for optimal benefits. The O-Shot uses platelet-rich plasma (PRP), a concentrated portion of your own blood filled with potent healing properties and growth factors. We achieve optimal benefits by injecting this all-natural substance into your pelvic floor, boosting rejuvenation and benefits without downtime or side effects.
If urgency is a concern, we offer Botox® injections, which help to reduce urgency and leakage by temporary arresting your overactive bladder muscle. Another non-surgical method is pelvic floor therapy, which involves biofeedback to help relax and strengthen the muscles of the lower pelvic floor. We offer even more treatments for urinary incontinence, including low-dose estrogen therapy and surgery.
