Urinary Incontinence Treatment

Slender Me Medical

Corona & Irvine, California

Do you ever sneeze and feel a little bit of urine come out? You’re not alone. Twenty-five million adult Americans suffering from some form of urinary incontinence; 75-80% of those are women. [i] Stress urinary incontinence describes the involuntary leakage of urine during activities that increase pressure in the abdomen such as when you sneeze, cough, laugh, jog, or do other things that put pressure on your bladder. It is the most common type of bladder control problem in women.[ii] This condition is caused by a loss of strength in the urethra due to a weakened pelvic support structure. This change in the pelvic floor muscles is usually due to pregnancy, menopause or other changes to your body.

Stress urinary incontinence, the most prevalent form of incontinence among women, affects an estimated 15 million adult women in the U.S.[iii] Despite the fact that so many women struggle with this common problem, urinary stress incontinence can be an embarrassing or uncomfortable issue to discuss. As a result, too often, this incontinence ends up getting dismissed as something that women just have to deal with. This could not be further from the truth! There are options.

One option is surgery, but like any invasive procedure, it has its risks which include[iv]:

  • Temporary difficulty urinating and incomplete bladder emptying (urinary retention)
  • Development of overactive bladder, which could include urge incontinence
  • Urinary tract infection
  • Difficult or painful intercourse

Many women are surprised to learn that nonsurgical treatments can achieve excellent results without requiring surgery, a long recovery period or even an extensive treatment time. Slender Me Medical offers THERMIva™, a non-invasive, non-surgical, in-office treatment for women.

ThermiVa™ is a nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation treatment that reduces the symptoms of stress urinary incontinence and effectively restores urinary continence. ThermiVa™ might be for you if your pelvic floor was damaged by childbirth or affected by hormone changes and gravity.

Nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation can have a large impact on a woman’s overall happiness and quality of life. ThermiVa’s™ vaginal rejuvenation process can also greatly improve common concerns such as loss of vaginal tightness and vaginal dryness that interfere with a woman’s daily life and intimate relationships.

THERMIva™ is a treatment that is applied to the labia or inside the vagina using a specially designed probe that delivers radio-frequency energy and gently heats the tissue. It works by releasing radio-frequency energy through the wand which helps to tighten vaginal tissues, stimulate collagen production and increase blood flow. This treatment happens in the comfort and privacy of our office. After treatment, you can immediately return to your regular activities. THERMIva™ can also help women experiencing a lack of vaginal elasticity caused by menopause or difficult labor. Roughly 50% of women develop symptoms related to vaginal atrophy – the deterioration of vaginal tissue that may cause a loss of vaginal elasticity- during perimenopause.[v] THERMIva™ provides long-lasting results that may aid in you pleasure and that of your partner.

We have two convenient locations, in Corona and in Irvine. Both locations have counselors who speak English and Spanish. Come visit us and let us help you feel beautiful inside and out.
