Urinary Incontinence Treatment

Urinary incontinence is a common condition characterised by involuntary leakage of urine. It disproportionately affects women due to various factors, such as pregnancy, childbirth, and menopause.

Types of Urinary Incontinence

The primary types of urinary incontinence affecting women include:

Stress Incontinence: Leakage occurs when physical stress or pressure is applied to the bladder, such as during sneezing, laughing, or exercising.

Urge Incontinence: Also known as overactive bladder, this involves a sudden and intense urge to urinate, often leading to involuntary leakage.

Mixed Incontinence: A combination of stress and urge incontinence symptoms.

Radiofrequency Procedure for Urinary Incontinence

This is a non-invasive treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to improve the strength and function of vaginal and pelvic tissues. It helps address urinary incontinence and enhances overall vaginal health.

How Does It Work?

The procedure involves using a small, hand-held device with a curved tip to deliver controlled radiofrequency energy to the vaginal and vulvar tissues. The radiofrequency energy generates gentle heat, stimulating collagen production and increasing blood flow. This tightens and rejuvenates the vaginal tissues and pelvic floor muscles, leading to better bladder control. Each session lasts around 30 minutes and is typically done over a few weeks. Multiple sessions are recommended.

Radiofrequency Procedure

Initial Consultation: The patient’s medical history is reviewed to assess symptoms of urinary incontinence, and a pelvic exam may be performed.

Preparation: The patient is positioned comfortably, and a lubricated device wand is inserted into the vaginal area.

Radiofrequency Application: The doctor uses the wand to deliver controlled radiofrequency energy, generating gentle heat to stimulate collagen production and tighten pelvic tissues.

Benefits of Radiofrequency Procedure
  • Strengthens pelvic floor muscles for better bladder control.
  • Promotes vaginal tissue health, potentially improving sexual satisfaction.
  • Suitable for women who prefer a non-surgical solution.

Chair-based Electromagnetic Stimulation for Urinary Incontinence Treatment

This is another non-invasive treatment option that uses electromagnetic stimulation in a chair-based setup.

How Does It Work?

The chair device looks like a regular chair but contains electromagnetic coils to target pelvic floor muscles. It generates electromagnetic pulses that stimulate deep pelvic muscles, causing repeated contractions. The patient sits in the chair while it delivers electromagnetic stimulation to induce muscle contractions. Sessions typically last around 30 minutes, allowing the patient to relax while undergoing treatment. Multiple sessions are recommended. Over time, this strengthens the muscles and improves bladder control.

Chair-based Electromagnetic Stimulation Procedure

Initial Consultation: The patient’s medical history will be assessed for urinary incontinence symptoms to ensure the chair is suitable.

Preparation: The patient sits comfortably on the chair, fully clothed.

Electromagnetic Stimulation: The chair emits electromagnetic pulses to stimulate the pelvic floor muscles. These contractions are powerful yet painless, providing muscle strengthening.

Benefits of Chair-based Electromagnetic Stimulation Procedure
  • Effectively strengthens pelvic muscles for better bladder control.
  • Suitable for various types of urinary incontinence in women.

    Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

    How long does each treatment take, and how many sessions are needed?

    For the radiofrequency procedure, each session is approximately 30 minutes, and three sessions are generally recommended over a few weeks for the best results. For electromagnetic stimulation, each session lasts about 30 minutes, with most patients needing multiple sessions over several weeks. For chair-based electromagnetic stimulation, sessions are around 30 minutes, with the number of sessions required depending on the patient’s condition.

    How should I prepare for these treatments?

    No special preparation is required, though it is advisable to be well-hydrated before the session. Wear comfortable clothing that allows for the treatment area to be easily accessed.

    What are the expected outcomes of urinary incontinence treatment?

    Improved bladder control, reduced leakage, and enhanced vaginal health. It also strengthens pelvic floor muscles, leading to better bladder control and reduced urinary incontinence.
