How Vaginal Laxity and Incontinence Affects Women Of All Ages & What You Can Do About It
- Posted on: Apr 5 2019
Women experience changes to the most intimate area of their body, beginning relatively early in their lives. Vaginal childbirth, the natural aging process, genetic factors and surgical interventions change the collagen and elastin fibers of a woman’s pelvic floor and are considered to be the main causes of incontinence and vaginal laxity. As a result of these challenges, the vaginal wall loses its strength, and women may not feel as much sensation during intercourse, which can dramatically affect their sexual health and intimate life within a marriage or relationship.
Today, there are many solutions that allow women to regain a sense of relief from the shame or lack of intimacy many patients of Dr. Shel Wellness & Aesthetic Center experience.
IntimaLase is a fast, effective, non-invasive, incision-less procedure for vaginal tightening with no undesired side effects. During the procedure a special attachment, similar to a speculum used during a pap test, is inserted into the vagina. Through this attachment the vaginal canal is treated with short non-ablative laser pulses through a small hand piece. Non-ablative simply means that the patented laser heats the vaginal tissue in a special way that causes stimulation of collagen. Scientifically proven clinical results show an average shrinkage of the vaginal canal after a single IntimaLase treatment was 17%! In 95% of cases patients report a noticeable difference, and most women who had the procedure done said that they felt more intense sensations and deeper orgasms.
As effective as Intimalase it, BTL ULTRA Femme 360 is also another popular solution. The only technology of its kind, the ULTRA Femme 360 provides complete vaginal rejuvenation including labial remodeling (labia reduction) and vaginal tightening with a single device! It uses the body’s natural processes to stimulate collagen production and restore the vaginal and vulvar areas to a more youthful state.
One of the most pressing challenges that face women of all ages, is incontinence. Incontinence is the loss of bladder control, varying from a slight loss of urine after sneezing, coughing, or laughing to complete inability to control urination. There are two types of incontinence: Stress Urinary Incontinence and Urge Incontinence. Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) is when there is leakage caused by pressure or sudden muscle contractions. SUI occurs during times like exercise, coughing, sneezing, laughter, and heavy lifting. Additionally, in younger women, SUI may begin after childbirth and in middle-aged women, or may begin to be problematic at menopause.
If Stress Urinary Incontinence, is your specific challenge, you are likely to find relief from IncontiLase– a non-surgical laser treatment that is delivered through the vagina, where short laser pulses create photo-thermal stimulation. This results in tightening of the connective tissue around the vagina wall, urethral orifice, vestibule and anterior bladder wall. The shrinking and tightening of the vaginal and pelvic floor tissues results in greater support to the bladder and urethra, and the return of normal continence function.
Urge incontinence (UI) is the leakage of urine that is triggered by a strong, uncontrollable urge to immediately urinate. This is the type of leakage that most commonly occurs on your way to the bathroom when you can’t get there in time.
In general, urinary incontinence is nothing to be embarrassed by or feel the need to suffer in silence about.
At Dr. Shel Wellness & Aesthetic Center we have the cutting edge incontinence treatment, EMSella. BTL EMSella is the first device of its kind that is FDA-approved for treating urinary incontinence without any surgery or downtime. In fact, this treatment is so non-invasive, you never even have to remove a single article of clothing! By using electromagnetic technology (similar to that of an MRI), EMSella stimulates the tissues of the pelvic floor, exercising the muscles, building up strength and restoring support for the pelvic organs. BTL EMSella is so powerful, just one 28-minute session provokes 11,200 contractions, which is equivalent to performing 11,200 Kegel exercises! In as little 3 weeks (a total of 6 treatments performed twice a week) you can improve your urinary incontinence by nearly 95%. Learn more about BTL EMSella here.
