How Do You Treat Incontinence?

Bladder control is a problem that can cause you embarrassment or even stop you from doing everyday activities. However, you shouldn’t be ashamed. In fact, it is quite common. If you are one of the many women, or men, who experience urinary incontinence, you shouldn’t let it stop you from living your life at the fullest. Let’s break down what causes urinary incontinence and how to treat it.

What Causes Urinary Incontinence?

The causes are varied and depend on many factors. Incontinence may be a temporary problem caused by a urinary tract infection, constipation or even certain medications. It may be a chronic problem with emotional and physical factors in play.

What causes urinary incontinence in the elderly?

Urinary incontinence in elderly people is a common symptom of the natural aging process. Nearly 1 in 10 people over the age of 65 suffer from this problem. For many elderly women, urinary incontinence is caused when pelvic organs shift out of their normal place into the vagina or when they have a sudden need to urinate and cannot hold their urine long enough. As for men, they can suffer from urinary incontinence when an enlarged prostate is blocking the urethra.

What causes urinary incontinence in young adults?

A common misconception regarding urinary incontinence is that it only affects older people, when in fact young adults can have this condition for a number of reasons. Stress incontinence is a common condition for middle-aged women and young men. This occurs when there is an unexpected leakage of urine caused by pressure or sudden muscle contractions on the bladders. It often happens during exercise, heavy lifting, coughing or sneezing, but it can also come from childbirth. Good news, this kind of urinary incontinence is treatable 90% of the time!

Now that you know what causes this condition, you may be wondering how do you treat urinary incontinence?

How to Treat Urinary Incontinence?

The underlying causes of urinary incontinence have the key to solve it: a restoration of the connective tissues. Juliet, a powerful non-invasive treatment will dramatically improve the symptoms of urinary incontinence after the first session.

Juliet: A powerful Urinary Incontinence Treatment

Juliet, dubbed the feminine laser, is a powerful handheld device that radiates a grade Erbium YAG laser. When inserted into the vagina, the laser generates a painless controlled burn that causes inflammation in the vaginal walls. This inflammation stimulates the production of new collagen. This makes the vagina return to its original metabolism at the same time as it improves the tone of pelvic muscles. The results? Lubrication, elasticity, and softness!

What to expect in your appointment?

Although Juliet is a powerful and quick-acting technology, the downsides or inconveniences are non-existent! During your 40-minute consultation, an expert in vaginal rejuvenation, such as Dr. Javier Saldaña, will help you feel safe and confident. Since the procedure is painless, you won’t need any anesthesia and the recovery time is minimal, so you can go for your appointment in your lunch break! Generally, patients need around 3 sessions, but after only one appointment, you will feel a dramatic reduction in urinary leakage and urgency! As an additional benefit, Juliet decreases vaginal dryness thus reducing painful intercourse!
