From Leaking Urine to Sudden Urges to Go: An Ob-Gyn Talks Bladder Control Problems
By Dr. Charlie Kilpatrick

Whether it’s a few drops of leaking urine or complete bladder emptying, incontinence is a bladder control issue that women are twice as likely to have as men. Incontinence can be embarrassing, super annoying, and costly. But you don’t have to suffer in silence – many treatment options are available.

Identifying the problem
The two most common types are stress incontinence and urgency incontinence. Stress incontinence is triggered by coughing, sneezing, or physical exercise, resulting in leaking urine. Urgency incontinence is leaking after a sudden, strong urge to urinate that you cannot stop.

Treatments for stress incontinence
Stress incontinence occurs when weakened pelvic floor muscles can’t withstand pressure on the bladder and urethra. These muscles may have weakened due to age, vaginal birth, or obesity.  Treatments for urgency incontinence Urgency incontinence is when you get the urge to go, and if you don’t make it to a bathroom, your bladder will empty. It can have serious effects on your life and your work. Experts don’t know what causes urgency incontinence, but there are different ways to approach it.

Celebration Obstetrics & Gynecology Now Offers Life-Changing Vaginal Rejuvenation Therapy: Empower RF by InMode.

Empower RF is a new safe, and effective solution delivering life-changing technologies for women’s wellness. This innovative device is designed to treat a broad range of conditions such as stress, urge, mixed urinary incontinence, weak pelvic floor muscles, blood circulation, and pain relief. We currently have two vaginal rejuvenation treatment options: VTone and FormaV.

VTone is a highly effective and non-invasive treatment that helps tone and train pelvic floor muscles. During a VTone treatment, an eggshaped device, about the size of a tampon, is placed into the vaginal canal to trigger involuntary muscle contractions. These contractions tone and tighten the pelvic floor, particularly those muscle fibers weakened or overstretched during pregnancy and childbirth. VTone is recommended for any woman who experiences urinary incontinence and wishes to avoid bladder mesh surgery. Women who want to strengthen their pelvic floor muscles for sexual enhancement would also benefit from this treatment.

FormaV is a vaginal rejuvenation treatment designed to improve internal tightness, circulation, and sensation. FormaV applies radiofrequency energy and localized heat to the inside of the vagina, which reaches the underlying layers of tissue and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, which remodels and tightens the tissues and increases circulation.
