Urinary incontinence can happy at any age, but it’s more prevalent for women after childbirth and menopause. To be sure, incontinence is embarrassing at any age. At Winnie King, MD Aesthetics and Wellness, we understand how bladder leakage can affect your life in so many ways, both physically and emotionally, which is why we provide a nonsurgical solution to help alleviate this condition and restore your sense of well-being.
Dr. King, a board-certified physician with more than 25 years of experience, offers state-of-the-art treatments for women living in and around Houston who are dealing with urinary incontinence. With the Ultra Femme 360™, urinary incontinence doesn’t have to be part of your life, no matter what your age.
Who gets urinary incontinence?
This annoying, life-disrupting problem happens to twice as many women as men. That’s because women experience pregnancies, vaginal deliveries, and menopause — all contributing factors for stress incontinence and urge incontinence. These are the most common types of urinary incontinence and are the result of weakened pelvic floor muscles.
Stress incontinence is when you sneeze or laugh too hard and lose urine involuntarily. Urge incontinence, or overactive bladder, gives you a sudden, intense urge to use the bathroom, but not enough time to get there before you experience urine leakage. Both types are common among women who’ve delivered babies or as a result of the hormonal changes that occur during menopause.
Don’t accept urinary incontinence as a normal part of aging
Many women believe that urinary incontinence is just something you must “learn to live with” after having babies or once you’ve gone through menopause. But that’s simply not true. Today’s advanced technology makes it possible to effectively treat urinary incontinence with a simple, painless, nonsurgical procedure: the BTL Ultra Femme 360.
With just 2-4 treatment sessions lasting just 15 minutes or less each, this groundbreaking radiofrequency (RF) technology rejuvenates vaginal tissue both inside and out, to provide a significant improvement from stress incontinence. It also tightens loose vaginal tissue and may help increase sensitivity during intercourse. During your treatment session, you can treat both internal and external vaginal tissue, if you desire.
Comfortable treatments and no downtime
If you’re like many women with urinary incontinence issues, you have no desire to undergo surgery and downtime to correct the problem, so instead you just deal with it. Fortunately, with Ultra Femme 360, a surgical procedure isn’t your only option.
During this nonsurgical treatment, Dr. King inserts the Ultra Femme 360’s disposable wand into the vagina and safely heats vaginal tissue to a controlled temperature. The RF energy is safe and comfortable. Women often describe the sensation as comparable to a hot stone massage.
There’s no pain at all, and the internal treatment takes just about eight minutes. Once your vaginal tissue reaches the desired temperature, your body responds by increasing blood supply to the area and starting the process of producing new collagen. This collagen production continues for several weeks after each treatment session, and as a result, your vaginal tissue tightens.
The effects can last up to a year.
Uniquely Ultra Femme 360
The BTL Ultra Femme 360 is the only radiofrequency device on the market that treats internal vaginal tissue a full 360° during each treatment session. The toning and tightening effect on vaginal tissue helps support weakened pelvic floor muscles, so you experience less instances of stress incontinence when you laugh, sneeze, or strain to lift something heavy.
Treatments can help you feel more confident during exercise classes or enjoying a day with friends, minus the worry that you’ll have an embarrassing accident. The Ultra Femme 360 does so much more than alleviate your anxieties about urinary incontinence. It also provides the reassurance you need to fully enjoy your life again.
