It’s Not Normal: Urinary Incontinence


Urinary incontinence is not something anyone looks forward to dealing with. Unfortunately, for many women, it is a real and major concern. Urinary incontinence often keeps women from enjoying their best life and from taking part in activities that they normally would.

Urinary incontinence is the accidental leakage of urine. There are two main types of urinary incontinence: urge and stress. Urge incontinence is when you get a sudden urge to urinate even if your bladder is almost empty. Stress incontinence is due to pressure, or stress, being placed on the bladder. This can occur as a result of a sneeze, laugh, cough, or physical exercise, such as heavy lifting. Regardless of the type, it is embarrassing and frustrating.

Many women don’t even seek treatment for urinary incontinence because they automatically assume it is just part of life and an ugly sign of getting older. This is completely false. Urinary incontinence is not normal, and there is a relief to be found no matter how old you are.

In women, the main cause of urinary incontinence is vaginal laxity. Vaginal laxity is when the vagina tissue and lining become loose or weakened. When this happens, the bladder loses its much-needed support. The front part of the vaginal wall is responsible for supporting the bladder. When the tissue becomes lax, the vaginal wall loses its structure, thus failing to support the bladder. The bladder is then susceptible to unnecessary pressure being placed on it, resulting in urine slipping out. To reduce symptoms of urinary incontinence, you must treat the underlying cause – vaginal laxity.

Intimate female rejuvenation is helping countless women take control of their lives and start living without the fear of wetting their pants. At Avante Laser and MediSpa, The Viveve® System is the treatment modality used for intimate female rejuvenation. The Viveve® System uses state-of-the-art radiofrequency technology with integrative cooling to heating the deep layers of vaginal tissue while keeping the surface skin cool at all times. The heat that penetrates the tissue and lining within the vagina stimulates the formation of new collagen. The tissue is made of collagen fibers – a protein that keeps it strong and healthy. With age, vaginal birth, and hormonal fluctuations, collagen production can slow down, causing the skin to become weakened. The new collagen helps tighten and tone the vaginal canal giving it back the structure it needs to support the bladder and prevent undue pressure. This, in turn, reduces symptoms of urinary incontinence and gives you a life without accidents.

The Viveve® System is non-surgical and doesn’t require any downtime. Just one treatment session is all it takes for you to start reaping the benefits. Don’t let urinary incontinence keep you from partaking in events and activities out of fear of having an accident. Enjoy life without worry with intimate female rejuvenation.
