It’s a subject that most women find embarrassing. Urinary incontinence. No one is talking about it, so they think they’re alone. That their situation is unique. But if you were the only one suffering – why would there be so many TV commercials for products like Depends and Poise pads?
More than 13 million American women – of all ages – suffer from some form of incontinence. There are four main types – stress incontinence, urge incontinence, functional incontinence and mixed. Mixed means simply that two or more types are present, usually stress and urge.
If you’re one of those women who is suffering is alone, wearing ugly underwear, taking prescription medication, avoiding life or running to the restroom every few minutes, take heart. There is a new, non-surgical treatment available that works. Not only that, it can enhance your sex life, too!
It’s called ThermiVa. ThermiVa is a new, minimally invasive, non-surgical treatment that uses radiofrequency to gently heat the urethra, vaginal and labial tissues, stimulating collagen production, tightening tissues, increasing nerve sensitivity and improving moisture balance.
Women are raving about ThermiVa and its life-changing results.
“We’ve had patients in our practice who were desperate,” Every time they coughed, laughed or sneezed, they’d leak. It was embarrassing and they felt like they couldn’t participate in normal daily activities for fear they would have an accident.”
After just one ThermiVa treatment, they noticed significant improvement, he said. “and after the full course of treatment, they no longer worried about leaks or loss of control. It’s a life-changing treatment.”
ThermiVa is recommended for women with mild to moderate stress, urge or mixed incontinence, Walker said.
Not only does ThermiVa help with urinary incontinence, it can improve your sex life. “The vaginal muscles are fuller, tighter and more responsive after treatment,”
Moisture balance is improved and women report increased sensitivity during intercourse.
How ThermiVa works
ThermiVa uses radio frequency energy (RF) to achieve its outstanding results. RF has been successfully used in medicine for more than 75 years, for cauterizing blood vessels, treating heart arrhythmias and sleep apnea, to produce MRI images, to assist in wound healing and to destroy tumors.
At low energy levels, RF is used in cosmetic procedures to tighten the skin, reduce fat and promote healing. It is this level of RF energy that is used by ThermiVa, achieving a heating range of 40 to 42 degree Celsius (104 to 107 F.)
The RF energy is directed at both internally and externally using a slender wand. The treatment is very comfortable, lasting 30 to 45 minutes. There is no down time, no recovery period and women can resume their normal activities immediately, including sexual activity.
Results last from nine to 15 months, with one treatment recommended annually thereafter.
Don’t let embarrassment get the best of you
Painful intercourse, vaginal dryness and stress incontinence are more common than most women realize. Thirty-three percent of premenopausal women and 50 percent of menopausal women experience atrophic vaginitis. Further, 57 percent of women age 40 to 60 have stress incontinence.
Women know they have these problems but many are afraid to acknowledge them, or discuss them with a healthcare provider. Some may have been given options – such as surgery – that they just were not interested in. ThermiVa offers them a new solution, one that works without surgery, without down time, without a lot of hassle.
