Urinary incontinence is very common in women, but it’s one of those conditions they are often embarrassed to talk about. However, it’s now possible to treat urinary incontinence with the FemiLift laser. It is a quick, minimally invasive procedure that requires little or no downtime.
Urinary incontinence in women
Urinary incontinence is a condition that can affect a woman’s quality of life, because it results in the involuntary leakage of urine when you least expect it. It may happen when you exercise, cough, or laugh, and can turn out to be an uncomfortable and embarrassing episode. Urinary incontinence is often the result of physical changes in the structure of the vagina due to factors such as childbirth and menopause.
How FemiLift can help
FemiLift is an extremely helpful procedure for women with urinary incontinence. The device has a single-use hygienic probe that delivers fractional energy to the vaginal tissue layers, creating microscopic channels.
The probe is rotated 360 degrees, to ensure that the entire vaginal wall is covered during the procedure. The laser energy remodels the vaginal wall and triggers collagen production. It also strengthens the ligaments around the bladder and urethra, and this helps to reduce urinary incontinence.
FemiLift is a pain-free treatment that takes only 15 minutes to perform. Very little downtime is necessary, and most patients are able to return to normal activities immediately. However, patients are advised to refrain from sexual intercourse for 3 days.
FemiLift treatment is typically performed as a series of 3 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart, but most women notice an improvement in incontinence after the first treatment. FemiLift offers a long term solution to the problem of urinary incontinence.
If you suffer from urinary incontinence, you can contact Dr. Farag, an Orange county board-certified OBGYN,to find out more about FemiLift.
