Urinary incontinence can be unpleasant and embarrassing, as it’s a condition that occurs without warning. FemiLift is a minimally invasive laser vaginal rejuvenation treatment that has helped many women with feminine issues such as vaginal laxity and vaginal dryness. But can FemiLift help with urinary incontinence?
What is urinary incontinence?
Urinary incontinence refers to the unintentional or accidental leakage of urine. There are different types of urinary incontinence but stress urinary incontinence (SUI) is extremely common in women. Here’s why.
Childbirth puts a lot of pressure on the vagina and the pelvic floor. The muscles of the pelvic floor provide support for the bladder, and if they become weak it affects the urethra and can result in the leakage of urine. SUI is characterized by leakage of urine due to activities that put pressure on the bladder, such as coughing, running, and laughing,
Can FemiLift help with urinary incontinence?
Yes, FemiLift has been very helpful in treating mild to moderate SUI. FemiLift helps with SUI because the pelvic anatomy is very near to the vagina, so when the vaginal tissues are being rejuvenated, the area around the urethra is also renewed. FemiLift thickens the vaginal tissues and enhances the pelvic support structure. The increased support for the urethra results in a reduction in the symptoms of SUI.
How FemiLift works
FemiLift is a fractional CO2 laser treatment that emits energy which penetrates into the deep vaginal tissues. This creates a thermal effect that activates collagen remodeling, making the vaginal tissues plumper and stronger.
FemiLift is a quick, minimally invasive treatment that only takes 10-15 minutes to complete. A series of 3 treatments is normally recommended for maximum results.
There is no post-procedural downtime with FemiLift, so patients can resume normal activities right away.
