Urinary incontinence is a condition that can hinder your ability to perform a number of normal activities, making it difficult to maintain a regular lifestyle. Alta Vista Dermatology offers urinary incontinence treatments to help women overcome the symptoms of incontinence and improve their quality of life. These treatments are available to women living in Denver, Highlands Ranch, and the surrounding areas of Colorado.
What is Urinary Incontinence?
Urinary incontinence is a condition that develops as a result of weakened vaginal tissue and muscles. When it begins to develop, you lose control of your bladder, causing uncontrollable leakage. Urine leakage will most often occur when exercising, laughing, sneezing, or coughing. Fortunately, there are several options available for women suffering from urinary incontinence. At Alta Vista Dermatology, we offer urinary incontinence treatment through vaginal rejuvenation.
How is Urinary Incontinence Treated?
Alta Vista Dermatology uses vaginal rejuvenation with diVa® to treat urinary incontinence. This gentle resurfacing treatment uses laser energy to restore tightness and function to the vaginal tissue, resulting in a reduction in urinary incontinence symptoms.
What Can I Expect from Treatment?
The diVa® vaginal rejuvenation treatment is quick and comfortable, and does not require any sort of anesthetic. This treatment is highly customizable to ensure that the patient is comfortable and will achieve their desired results. The treatment is performed by inserting the diVa® handpiece into the vaginal canal, where it will begin to emit carefully controlled laser energy. You can expect slight pressure against the vaginal walls during treatment, but this process is generally comfortable and only takes about five minutes.
What Can I Expect After Treatment?
There is no downtime after your urinary incontinence treatment, and most patients return to their normal daily activities immediately following their appointment. Although you will have little to no discomfort after treatment, we recommend that patients wait 48 hours to resume sexual intercourse. In most cases, you will notice results within a few weeks of your first treatment. However, some patients need up to three treatment sessions to achieve their desired results. We perform these treatments four weeks apart, and recommend an additional treatment once a year to maintain results.
