Mild incontinence is extremely common in women. It often leads to those who suffer from the ailment being embarrassed and worried about social situations in which they might suffer from a bout of incontinence.
The inability to hold urine often occurs due to weakened bladder muscles and tissues; this weakening can be caused by several things, but is often one of the following:
- General aging
Incontinence is different for everyone. Some do not suffer from the symptoms until later in their life due to the aging process, while others will experience incontinence from a relatively young age due to childbirth.
At some point in their life, all women will suffer from leaking or the inability to control their bladder. There are two main types of incontinence women suffer from:
If you leak when laughing, coughing, sneezing, running or doing any kind of strenuous activity, this is referred to as stress incontinence.
If you often have the sudden urge to go to the toilet, even if your bladder is almost empty, and cannot stop the urine from leaking before you get to the toilet, this is known as urge incontinence.
Whether you suffer from stress-related or urge incontinence, both can lead to embarrassing and awkward situations where you can’t prevent urine from leaking.
How ThermiVA can reduce the likelihood of incontinence
ThermiVA uses radio frequency to target gentle heat to both the internal and external vaginal tissues, resulting in a more youthful appearance and tighter vaginal muscles.
The treatment encourages the production of new collagen, making the skin much softer and tighter than before.
ThermiVA has been proven to reduce incontinence, tightening the vaginal area means that the patient is able to hold in their need to go and urine no longer involuntary leaking from the vagina.
Many patients see results after just one 15- to 30-minute treatment; however, we do recommend undergoing three treatments to see the best results from the procedure.
The procedure doesn’t require any downtime or rest period; there are no lasers, cuts or incisions; and it is a relatively painless process.
Alongside the reduced likelihood of incontinence, ThermiVA also boasts many other benefits, including a youthful appearance, reduced dryness and pain and tighter vaginal and labial tissues.
The results from ThermiVA usually last between nine months and two years; however, as it is a relatively low-cost procedure with little downtime, our patients often come back to our clinic for another round of treatments so they can continue to benefit from the many positive effects of the procedure.
