Do you always have to be on the lookout for the nearest bathroom whenever you go out? If you have urinary incontinence, there are a variety of minimally invasive treatment options that can help, so you don’t have to live with the problem. But just how can you treat urinary incontinence.
Facts about urinary incontinence
Urinary incontinence refers to the involuntary leakage of urine. However, there are different types of urinary incontinence.
Stress incontinence is characterized by unintentional leakage of urine when pressure is put on the bladder due to activities such as sneezing or coughing, while urge incontinence is marked by a sudden urge to pass urine. Stress urinary incontinence is usually an indication that the pelvic floor muscles are either weak or damaged.
Pregnancy and childbirth can increase the chances of urinary incontinence occurring.
How can I treat urinary incontinence?
Fractional vaginal laser treatments have been proven to help with urinary issues. One of the most popular options is the diVa vaginal rejuvenation treatment by Sciton.
DiVa is an innovative hybrid fractional laser treatment that uses two different wavelengths to rejuvenate the vaginal tissues. This feature makes it very flexible as it can be customized based on the specific needs of each patient.
How diVa treats urinary incontinence
The diVa combo laser simultaneously treats the superficial and deep vaginal tissues. Because the laser reaches the deep vaginal tissues it is able to strengthen the surrounding pelvic muscles. When the pelvic muscles are stronger, there is improved control of urinary function, and this eliminates urinary incontinence.
There is no downtime after diVa laser therapy, so patients can resume normal activities right away.
