Urinary incontinence is a condition wherein there is involuntary leakage of urine. There are 2 types of urinary incontinence. One is stress urinary incontinence and the other is urge urinary incontinence. Men and women are susceptible to this condition. However women have a higher risk because of the structure of the urinary tract, pregnancy, childbirth and menopause. This condition may also be caused in women due to other factors related to heredity, being overweight or even the thinning of the urethra due to natural ageing. Also, with the highly stressful environments we have today, the cases of urinary incontinence are on the rise.
Often, it starts small with small leaks being noticed when sneezing or coughing. Gradually, it becomes a painpoint and may even occour in other situations causing embarrassment. Conjugal relationships are also affected leading to frustration, withdrawal and a general lack of self-esteem. In the long run, it causes social embarrassment as one has to visit the restroom often and also restrain oneself from moving freely and laughing, sneezing etc. This in itself is a constant source of tension!
The underline cause of urinary incontinence is the loss of natural laxity in the pelvic muscles and tissues due to the loss of collagen and elastine proteins. When this happens, the tissue becomes weak and is no longer able to provide a strong support to the urethra and the urine bladder structure. This results in ‘leaks’ which gradually build up over time, if the condition is left untreated.
But all is not lost. This condition is very much treatable and one can take comfort from the fact that about 1 in 3 women over the age of 40 are naturally affected by this. It is just that many fail to report or talk about it due to the general fear of embarrassment.
One of the most effective methods to treat this condition is by the use of Femlift CO2 lasers. As the leading urinary incontinence (or in a casual ‘slang’ urine stop) clinic in Chennai, we bring you this latest medical blessing to get permanent relief.
The FemiLift CO2 laser is used to cause concentrated heating around the urethra area. This induces the production of collagen naturally. The outcome of the treatment is complete remodeling of the tissue and its reestablishment in a firmer form, thereby giving it the strength to support the urethra. FemLift CO2 can also be used as a substitute for surgical vaginoplasty. Since the vaginal tissue is remodelled, the vaginal canal is also made smaller and tighter, thereby offering an excellent non-surgical alternative for vaginoplasty as well.
