Stress Incontinence and how we can help
It’s not something that comes up for common discussion, and yet stress incontinence is something that affects 1 in 5 women over the age of 40 and many women after child birth. It is the most common form of urinary incontinence and can make daily life very uncomfortable.
The sphincter pelvic muscles, which help support the bladder and urethra, become weakened in stress incontinence. They are not able to prevent urine from flowing if pressure is put on the abdomen, such as when a woman sneezes, laughs, coughs or lifts something heavy.
The muscles become weakened as a result of childbirth or damage to the area perhaps by surgery and some medications. Women who have had multiple births are particularly prone to this. Age can also play a part.
FemiLift, our pain free gentle laser, has been demonstrated to help improve the symptoms of stress incontinence. It works by stimulating the collagen within the vaginal walls which leads to a tightening and strengthening of the pelvic region and a subsequent reduction in stress incontinence. Women who have had the procedure have noticed a definite difference and improvement in the condition.
The FemiLift treatment is pain free and over very quickly. We can also boast to have the only clinic in the UK with a dedicated female specialist to ensure that your dignity is of the utmost concern during this intimate procedure.
