Bladder Incontinence Treatment
Just like skin, vaginal tissue is made up of collagen fibres. Over time collagen loses it strength and shape resulting in a loss of support to the bladder, urethra and other pelvic structures. This can result in loss of bladder control and unwanted urine loss (bladder incontinence or stress urinary incontinence). Some of the other effects of collagen loss are decreased sexual sensation, water trapping in the vagina, inability to keep tampons in the vagina, etc.
Though it may be difficult to talk about, Dr. Allan understands these concerns and would be pleased to discuss a treatment for bladder incontinence with you.
Options for the treatment of bladder incontinence involve:
- living with this condition the best you can
- lifestyle changes (for example reducing fluid intake, reducing coffee consumption, avoiding strenuous activities, etc)
- padded underwear or oversized incontinence tampons or pessaries
- Kegel exercises or physiotherapy,
- surgery with mesh insertion into the vagina
- medication and drugs
- the Lifestyles Allan Centre Treatment
The Lifestyles Allan Centre Treatment is a comfortable, less than one hour treatment performed in our office. A plastic probe is gently inserted into the vagina by trained staff. Deep heating and surface cooling stimulate your body’s natural collagen formation process which revitalizes and tightens vaginal tissue. The resulting collagen growth provides improved support to the bladder and increased squeeze to the urethra which help to reduce unwanted urine loss. This is a virtually painless procedure with no significant risks or downtime.
There is no recovery time required and you can drive yourself to and from our office and return to normal activities immediately. There is no pain, discharge or bleeding following the procedure.
Your body will respond to the treatment by generating new and stronger collagen that renews and tightens vaginal tissue and helps to support your bladder and surrounding structures. It also increases the thickness of the vaginal wall resulting in a youthful tone that increases friction and sensation with intercourse. Within a month or so following the treatment most women notice less urine loss and less need to rush to the bathroom. The results of our research have shown significant results in reducing unwanted urine loss and helping women get back to the gym and other activities.
