Empowering Life-Changing Therapies
The loss of bladder control, called urinary incontinence, is common and troublesome for many women. Urinary incontinence can range from small leaks during activities like laughing, coughing or sneezing, to failure to make it to the toilet in time.
What Causes Urinary Incontinence?
Urinary incontinence can be caused by a variety of things, many of which are out of our control.
- Pregnancy and childbirth
- Pelvic surgery
- Muscles problems in the bladder and urethra
- Weakened pelvic floor muscles or a weak sphincter muscle at the bladder’s neck
- Chronic medical conditions such as diabetes mellitus
- Anxiety and clinical depression
- Urinary tract infections
How Do You Treat Urinary Incontinence?
Approximately 80% of people with urinary incontinence can eliminate or significantly improve their symptoms with the appropriate treatment.
- Practice regular Kegal exercises
- Cut down on fluid intake, especially within 3 hours before you go to bed.
- Avoid activities that put pressure on your bladder such as jumping or jogging and take up low impact activities.
- Lose the excess weight because obesity puts pressure on the bladder, and damages urethral structures as well as the pelvic floor.
- Quit smoking and vaping because it can cause a chronic cough which damages the pelvic floor.
- Avoid alcoholic and caffeinated beverages including coffee, energy drinks, teas, and sodas.
Empower RF by InMode
If lifestyle changes and regular kegal exercises fail to improve urinary incontinence symptoms, there is now a cutting-edge technology available to help called Empower RF. By harnessing the safe, effective power of radiofrequency waves, the Empower RF technologies gently target sensitive tissue with waves of restorative thermal energy. The Empower platform by Inmode utilizes three different handpieces to provide an FDA cleared option for women with urinary incontinence, especially those who wish to avoid a bladder mesh surgery.
The Votiva handpiece delivers comfortable bipolar radiofrequency waves to the vaginal canal to increase collagen production and improve blood supply. The first of three steps to achieve optimal non-invasive urinary incontinence treatment, this comfortable 30 minute procedure involves no downtime or significant restrictions. A Votiva therapy program is customized to each patient based on severity of symptoms, medical history, and physical exam.
VTone is an FDA-cleared device that uses intravaginal Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) and neuromuscular re-education to retrain weak pelvic floor muscles in women to treat urinary incontinence.
Benefits of VTone:
- In-office non-invasive procedure to strengthen weak, damaged pelvic floor muscles to improve muscle tone and alleviate urinary incontinence
- The two-sided single use tip is placed easily and comfortably into the vaginal canal
- Restores a patient’s self-esteem and quality of life without bladder mesh surgery or a recovery period
Morpheus8 V utilizes microneedling and radiofrequency energy to strengthen the connective tissue between the vagina and the bladder. By promoting the formation of collagen and elastin molecules, the Morpheus8V handpiece regenerates the thickness of the bladder floor to treat stress urinary incontinence and overactive bladder.
