Can Non-Surgical Laser Vaginal Tightening Alleviate Signs & Symptoms of Urinary Incontinence?

Posted: June 18, 2014

Last month, we were so excited to announce the arrival of FemiLift, the new, non-surgical laser vaginal tightening treatment now available with Denver board-certified urogynecologist, Dr. Oscar A. Aguirre. This month, we’re discussing yet another benefit of this non-invasive treatment, which has already changed the lives of so many moms – the alleviation of the signs and symptoms of urinary incontinence.

In addition to tightening the vagina without surgery, downtime or pain, FemiLift can help put an end to the embarrassing, progressive symptoms of urinary incontinence, one of the most common post-pregnancy concerns. Could you possibly be  a candidate for this in-office treatment and not even know it? Read on to find out…

The main symptoms of urinary incontinence include:

  • The involuntary release or leaking of urine, especially when you cough, laugh or sneeze
  • “Accidents” involving leaking a small to moderate amount of urine
  • Frequent, sudden need to urinate

Dr. Aguirre says, “FemiLift is renowned for tightening the vagina without surgery or downtime to eliminate a feeling of looseness after childbirth and enhancing sexual pleasure for both parties. However, the degree to which non-surgical laser vaginal tightening has improved the symptoms of stress urinary incontinence for our Denver patients has been remarkable. We couldn’t be more thrilled with the results we’ve seen.”

Here is what one recent FemiLift laser vaginal tightening client had to say: “At 38 years old…dealing with stress urinary incontinence (SUI), was becoming an increasingly bigger problem…it was effecting my everyday life in that I couldn’t sneeze, cough, run, or heavy lift without some moderate amount of leakage…The breaking point for me came last summer when I was playing kickball with some friends and jumped up to catch the ball and leaked a large amount …After the game, I sat down an started getting emotional from the frustrations of dealing with this problem long term. So, I finally made the appointment at the urogynecologist. I went to the appointment, discussed my symptoms, and went through the initial testing. The diagnosis was as I suspected. SUI requiring surgical intervention (but) I thought I might get a second opinion. This is when I found Dr. Aguirre. I made an appointment and when I met him, I knew instantly that I had made a good decision in choosing to see him…However, this time it was different. Dr. Aguirre offered me another option I didn’t know existed. The Alma laser is brand new in the US and not very many physicians are even aware of it, let alone have access to it. Dr. Aguirre thought that it may be worth a try…He explained that there is no pain or recovery time after treatments…The treatment were totally painless, took about 15 minutes, and I was able to continue my day as if nothing had happened. I would even go CrossFit after with no problems.  Now, after three treatments, there is most definitely an obvious difference! I now do not leak when I sneeze, cough, run, or lift moderate to heavy. The first time I ran a mile without any leakage I was ecstatic and called the office to let them know my successes. They all cheered along with me! Although, I still have a very slight amount of leakage when I lift extremely heavy for multiple repetitions, I would say that the treatments were an incredible success with about 90-95% improvement in my symptoms.” – T.B.
