Stress Urinary 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 leakage of urine 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. 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.
