Urinary incontinence is a common condition of unintentional releases of urine. It affects both men and women; however, it tends to be more common with females. There are a number of types of urinary incontinence. These include:
The most common type of urinary incontinence in women as they age is stress urinary incontinence. Usually, stress urinary incontinence causes are down to the weakening of the muscles that prevent urination. It is usually triggered every time your bladder is put under pressure, for instance, when laughing, sneezing, coughing, exercising etc. Urinary incontinence in women is not necessarily a sign of underlying health problems, but it can have a negative effect on your everyday standard of living.
All urinary incontinence causes tend to come down to overworking the muscles. The most common reasons behind this overactivity could be pregnancy, obesity and general ageing. While urinary incontinence in women of an older age is fairly common, it is not an inevitable part of ageing and there are a number of urinary incontinence treatment options available.
EF MEDISPA is offering a quick, safe, non-surgical solution for female stress urinary incontinence. Femilift, a state of the art vaginal laser treatment.*
Studies have proven laser treatments to be effective for urinary incontinence treatment. They work by using an innovative CO2 laser beam to heat the tissue carefully in order to contract existing fibres and encourage neocollagenesis, the production of new collagen. This works to encourage blood flow that helps restore the elasticity of the vaginal tissue and restore strength. Once the strength of these muscles has been rebuilt, usually over a course of 3 treatments, 4 weeks apart, you should notice an improvement in continence.
There are some basic things you can do to help prevent incontinence such as trying to maintain a healthy weight and exercising your pelvic floor muscles to keep them tight. However, pregnancy, menopause and ageing are part of our lives and urinary incontinence in women might be an unpleasant side effect that you need to address before it starts affecting your lifestyle.
Making the necessary lifestyle changes and exercising your pelvic floor muscles might not always be successful in treating urinary incontinence. When it comes to female stress urinary incontinence, there are surgical solutions to correct damage such as vaginoplasty. However, EF MEDISPA is offering FemiLift, a Minimally invasive laser treatment for female stress urinary incontinence that helps tighten the vaginal tissues to their pre-menopausal or pre-pregnancy condition.
When dealing with any of the types of urinary incontinence, it can be tempting to cut down on your water intake. It is important that you drink enough during the day to ensure that you don’t become dehydrated. However, you may wish to avoid alcohol and caffeine which cause your kidneys to produce more urine.
