Taking Control Over Urinary Incontinence

Urinary incontinence is a common and often confidence-depleting condition that affects millions of people. Incontinence is prevalent in women and even more so in middle-aged women and women nearing retirement age. 

Types of Urinary Incontinence

There are several types of urinary incontinence, but the most prevalent ones are stress incontinence, urge incontinence, and a combination of both known as stress/urge incontinence. 

Stress incontinence signifies when pressure on the bladder is exerted during activities such as coughing, sneezing, or exercising. 

Conversely, urinary incontinence involves a sudden and uncomfortably strong urge to urinate followed by involuntary leakage. 

Stress/urge incontinence is a combination of stress and urge incontinence, where leakage occurs with physical exertion and a sudden urge to urinate.

Urinary Incontinence in Women

Urinary incontinence can develop in women due to various factors. Pregnancy and childbirth can be responsible for weakening the pelvic floor muscles, which provide support to the bladder and urethra. Hormonal changes during menopause may also contribute to a loss of bladder control. Additionally, obesity, chronic coughing, certain medications, and neurological conditions can increase the risk of developing urinary incontinence. 

Treatment Options

Sling or mesh surgery is a treatment option for urinary incontinence, particularly stress incontinence. However, it has risks. Complications associated with sling or mesh surgery may include infection, pain, mesh erosion into nearby tissues, urinary problems, and even the need for additional surgeries. 

Recently, medical care providers at Blue Medical Spa have made issues related to vaginal health a critical focus. In addition to the many non-invasive treatment opportunities, Blue has incorporated advanced technologies into the practice that prioritize direct vaginal and pelvic rejuvenation

InMode EmpowerRF and its VTone and FormaV capabilities present a non-surgical and effective approach to address urinary incontinence and promote overall vaginal health.

VTone is an innovative treatment modality within InMode EmpowerRF that targets pelvic floor muscles to strengthen and tone them, aiding in managing urinary incontinence. By utilizing RF energy, VTone promotes muscle stimulation, which can lead to increased muscle strength, improved support to the bladder and urethra, and, ultimately, reduced leakage episodes.

FormaV is another component of InMode EmpowerRF that focuses on vaginal rejuvenation and tightening. Using advanced RF technology, FormaV stimulates collagen production and tightens the vaginal tissues, addressing concerns such as vaginal laxity, dryness, and mild urinary incontinence. This non-invasive procedure offers noticeable improvements in vaginal wellness and can contribute to increased self-confidence and sexual satisfaction.

In addition to InMode’s rejuvenation advancements, Blue features highly functional ThermiVa technology.

ThermiVa is a non-surgical treatment that utilizes radiofrequency energy to rejuvenate the vaginal tissues. It offers numerous benefits, including improved vaginal laxity, increased vaginal lubrication, enhanced sexual satisfaction, reduced urinary incontinence, and improved overall vaginal health. The treatment is safe, comfortable, and requires no downtime, making it a popular choice for women seeking non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation.

Urinary incontinence can significantly impact a woman’s quality of life. Understanding its different types, causes, and available non-invasive treatments could be crucial to discovering life without suffering from these conditions. Consulting with a female medical professional at Blue can help determine the most suitable treatment approach and improve overall well-being.
