Stress incontinence causes uncontrolled urine leakage as a result of a sudden increase in pressure in the abdomen, e.g. from laughing, coughing, sneezing or lifting heavy loads. The most common cause of stress incontinence is weakness of the pelvic floor muscles, vaginal atrophy or laxity, usually after giving birth. During menopause, the lack of female sex hormones can weaken the elasticity of the tissue surrounding the urethra and pelvic floor. Urge incontinence is a strong, sudden need to urinate. This condition is also called an ͞overactive bladder͟.
Treating stress and urge incontinence with vSculpt
vSculpt is a clinically tested home device. It generates gentle, controlled warmth to stimulate the connective tissue surrounding the vaginal mucosa. This warmth improves the microcirculation and blood flow in the area, providing more oxygen, proteins and nutrients. It encourages the shrinkage of collagen in the vaginal tissue and stimulates the production of new collagen. This effect gives the patient better control over her bladder.
Pelvic floor toning with therapeutic vibration
Therapeutic vibration helps tighten the muscles of the pelvic floor to increase muscle tone. In addition, vibration provides a pleasurable experience that not only lets the patient know that the treatment is in session, but also enhances patient compliance.
