Stress Incontinence (SUI) is an extremely common and distressing condition that affects a high percentage of women, with prevalence rates increasing with age. According to the American Urological Association, there is an estimated prevalence for urinary incontinence of 30% in women aged 30 to 60 years, with approximately half of the cases attributed to SUI (15%). FemiLift is a safe and effective treatment for this indication, enabling women to enjoy a much more comfortable life – quickly and with no pain or downtime.
SUI involves involuntary urine leakage in response to increased intra-abdominal pressure.
This condition may be caused by a loss of sub-urethral support, usually as a result of pelvic support structure damage. Patients often report varying severity of urine leakage during activities that increase intra-abdominal pressure such as coughing, sneezing, heavy lifting and physical activity.
How does the FemiLift vaginal laser treatment help with Stress Incontinence?
Using powerful energy to achieve a deep thermal effect, FemiLift stimulates collagen renewal as well as contraction of the elastin fibers, inducing rejuvenation and tissue remodeling. The technological benefit of a long pulse enables the creation of this powerful thermal effect, which offers a significant advantage in such procedures.
It treats the entire pre-urethral space, increasing the thickness of the vaginal walls and providing better support to the mid urethra underside. The result is a significant reduction in SUI symptoms, improved control of urination, and long term patient continence.
What other benefits does this treatment have for women?
Other than improvement of bladder leakage, the FemiLift laser holds more benefits for areas of concern. These include:
- Improvement in cases of vaginal dryness
- Considerable reduction of recurring yeast infections
- Improving mild cases of vaginal laxity – tightening the vaginal walls tissue.
