Nonsurgical solution for Urinary Incontinence

Original Article By Greenwich Medical Spa Staff. Ladies, have you ever been to the gym and the instructor asks you to do jumping jack; and when you start, all of a sudden you feel a tad wet down there and you find yourself running to the bathroom and never doing jumping jacks again. Or do you find yourself crossing your legs when you sneeze or laugh? What you are experiencing is called urinary incontinence and more than 13 million people in the United States experience it as well. You are not alone, uncontrolled urine or bladder leakage is a common and stressful issue. Something as simple as coughing, sneezing, lifting, or even running may cause you to leak uncontrollably. We understand how this can impact an individuals’ quality of life in a severe way.

Even though it may occur more often as you age, or after child birth, urinary incontinence isn’t an inescapable consequence of aging. There are solutions to this life stressing issue! Many individuals experience minor leaks, however others may lose moderate amounts of urine more frequently.

Urinary Incontinence treatments

There are many at home lifestyle remedies you can begin doing to have slight improvement with this issue, like Kegel exercises where the pelvic region is contracted and then released to enhance the pelvic muscles.

If you’ve found no relief from any at home remedies, there are other surgical and non-surgical options.

A surgical option for urinary incontinence is Sling Surgery. This is where the surgeon creates a sling out of mesh or human tissue and puts it beneath the tube where urine flows through, called the urethra. The sling lifts and supports the urethra and the neck of your bladder essentially helping to prevent leaks.

A great non-surgical urinary incontinence solution is called ThermiVa. ThermiVa is proven to reduce urinary leaking and urge and when used with pelvic floor physical therapy many women are able to avoid going under the knife for various bladder surgeries.

ThermiVa in Greenwich, requires no downtime, gently heating the vaginal tissue with radiofrequency energy. The body increases collagen production in the treated areas, leading to stronger collagen bands and tightened skin inside and out.

If you find that urinary incontinence affects your daily activities, don’t hesitate to see a specialist to find out more information or contact the Greenwich Medical Spa to learn more about Thermiva.

Frequently Asked Questions

What can EMSCULPT NEO do for me?

EMSCULPT NEO is an amazing noninvasive body sculpting treatment. It’s perfect for patients who are looking to get summer body ready! With this state-of-the-art, two-in-one technology, you build muscle and burn fat at the same time! This treatment provides a 30% reduction in subcutaneous fat and 25% growth in muscle on the treated area after a recommended number of treatments.

How does EMSCULPT NEO work?

While you lie down and relax, EMSCULPT NEO sends high-intensity energies deep below your skin, making your muscles contract in a big way that is like doing thousands of crunches or squats in a few minutes. While your muscles are contracting, the energy from the applicator simultaneously sends warmth to your fat cells, heating them up to the point of destruction. So you build real muscle from the contractions while destroying fat cells that are later naturally eliminated by your body.

How many EMCULPT NEO treatments will I need?

The recommended treatment plan is 4-6 treatments, one week apart. Depending on the patient, you may see improvement in your muscle tone, core strength and posture within a few weeks. And you’ll see fat reduction continue for about 12 weeks after your last treatment.

Are there any patients for whom you do not recommend EMSCULPT NEO?

EMSCULPT NEO is great because it has been shown to be safe and approved for all body and skin types. Contraindications include hernia, recent surgery, and pregnancy, so if a patient has any of these conditions, they should wait until they don’t to get EMSCULPT NEO.

What is the difference between CoolSculpting and EMSCULPT NEO?

CoolSculpting is a well-known treatment that is excellent for reducing unwanted fat in targeted areas. EMSCULPT NEO also reduces fat, but it has the benefit of building muscle, which is what its predecessor EMSCULPT was made to do.

Which treatment you choose depends on what your body needs and your personal goals. If you have great muscle tone and only need to get rid of some extra fat in a specific area like your abdomen or below your chin, CoolSculpting is an excellent option. But if you have loss of muscle tone and need more of a lift or tightening to a certain area like your abs or butt, EMSCULPT NEO is your two-in-one solution.

What is your favorite thing about EMSCULPT NEO?

Not only is this treatment super convenient with one treatment lasting only 30 minutes, but there is also no downtime! Patients can go about their day as they normally would immediately after their visit.
