Urinary incontinence is a common problem that many people are embarrassed to talk about. More than 25 million adults living in America struggle with some type of urinary incontinence. Of those adults, more than 80% are women. Statistics show that 25% of women over the age of 18 report experiencing a leaky bladder. Unfortunately, many women do not seek treatment for Urinary incontinence. This is a shame since there are several effective treatments that can significantly improve this common condition.

The Causes of Urinary Incontinence

There are two types of muscles and tissues involved with urinating. Contracting muscles force urine from the bladder, down into the urethra. Sphincter muscles simultaneously relax to allow the urine out of the urethra to exit the body. Urinary incontinence, also known as a leaky bladder, results when the nerves, muscles, and tissues that are responsible for retaining and releasing urine become damaged.  The most common conditions that damage the muscles and tissues associated with urinating is vaginal childbirth, the natural breakdown of tissue that results from aging, and menopause.

Stress Incontinence Vs. Urge Incontinence

Urinary incontinence is broken down into two main types. Stress Urinary incontinence, also known as SUI and Urge urinary incontinence (UUI.) Stress Urinary incontinence is the most prevalent type of leaky bladder. It refers to urinary leakage that occurs during exertion or straining, such as jumping, coughing, sneezing, etc. Stress incontinence is often caused by vaginal childbirth, but may also be a symptom of menopause. It results when muscles and tissues that hold up the bladder become damaged, allowing them to stretch out and weaken. This permits the bladder to push down on the sphincter muscles responsible for keeping the urethra shut when not trying to urinate.

Studies show the stress urinary incontinence can be improved by strengthening the muscles and tightening the tissues that support the bladder.

Urge Urinary Incontinence refers to the sudden need to urinate accompanied by involuntary leakage. Unlike stress incontinence, urge incontinence is caused by dysfunctional nerve signals that tell the bladder to contract at inappropriate times.

Non-invasive Urinary Incontinence Treatments

Viveve is a revolutionary treatment that uses advanced cryogen cooled radiofrequency (RF) technology to rejuvenate vaginal tissues. Heat from the RF energy stimulates the body to remodel tissue and create more collagen, while cryogen cools the skin for a painless procedure. The RF energy tightens the vaginal tissues that become lax from giving birth or during menopause.
