If this has ever happened to you, believe me…you are not alone! A recent poll of over 1000 women by the University of Michigan found that half of women over 50 years of age have had such an embarrassing moment. For 41 percent of these women, urinary stress incontinence is a Major problem. One third of these women experience an episode of incontinence every day! Coughing or sneezing is the most common trigger with an incidence of 79 percent. A leak while trying to get to the bathroom was experienced by 64 percent, and 49 percent experienced a leak when laughing, 37 percent when exercising.
The poll found that not only is stress incontinence common, but women rarely talk to their doctors about their symptoms. They consider this a natural part of aging. It may be more common with increasing age, but it does not need to be accepted as normal.
Lose your fear of embarrassment
Urinary Stress Incontinence can now be treated with laser vaginal rejuvenation. 97 to 98 percent of women see marked improvement of urinary stress incontinence with a series of Co2re Intima treatments. You can now be free from these embarrassing moments when you just cannot control a little urinary leak.
Vaginal Rejuvenation not only treats urinary stress incontinence, it also greatly improves vaginal lubrication, sensation, circulation and even the appearance of the labia. As women age and hormones decrease, the vaginal wall atrophies with the tissue becoming smoother and thinner. It also produces less lubrication. The Co2re Intima rejuvenates the tissue making it thicker with better elasticity, circulation, and lubrication.
Lose your fear of Pain
This sounds too good to be true and you are thinking, “this must really hurt a lot.”
Good news…the treatment does not feel like a laser that you would use on your face. In fact, it does not even feel warm inside the vagina. Most women feel a little pressure as the vaginal treatment progresses, but not pain. The external tissues, the labia majora and minora as well as the clitoral hood, are also treated, but these areas are anesthetized prior to treatment for maximum comfort. Treatment of external tissues may decrease dark pigment as well as shrink and plump the labial tissues.
Co2re Intima vaginal rejuvenation is done in a series of three treatments, three to five weeks apart. The post treatment side effects are minimal. Some women experience a little bit of blood spotting for a day or two. Patients refrain from intercourse for five days. Come in for a consult to discuss your symptoms and options with Dr. Parker.
