Urinary incontinence is a common condition, but that doesn’t make it less frustrating. Bladder leakage that occurs when you cough, sneeze, exercise, or laugh can be inconvenient and downright embarrassing, and it can put a serious damper on your life. At BioWell Therapeutics in Huntsville, AL, Dr. Daniel Skinner is committed to helping his patients find relief from urinary incontinence using the FemiLift laser vaginal tightening system. This minimally invasive procedure helps patients reduce leakage so they can get back to their life and not worry about leakage.

What causes urinary incontinence?

Every day, you rely on many specific muscles and nerves in your bladder to hold urine. However, certain factors, like too much pressure or other complications, can have a serious and frustrating impact on your ability to use the bathroom when you want.

Women, in particular, are more likely to experience urinary incontinence due to:

  • Pregnancy
  • Childbirth
  • Menopause

Other causes of urinary incontinence include:

  • Getting older
  • Weight fluctuation
  • Trauma
  • Pelvic injury

Everyone experiences urinary incontinence differently. Categories of urinary incontinence include:

  • Stress, which is when urine leaks due to pressure on your bladder, like sneezing or heavy lifting
  • Overflow, which is when you have frequent dribbling of urine
  • Urge, which is when you have a sudden and intense need to urinate throughout the day and night
  • Functional, which is when a mental or physical impairment (such as arthritis) keeps you from using the bathroom when you need to
  • Mixed, which is when you experience more than one kind of urinary incontinence

How does FemiLift treat urinary incontinence?

Pads, special underwear, and panty liners may do the trick temporarily, but you shouldn’t have to rely on these temporary ways of dealing with urinary incontinence.

At BioWell Therapeutics, Dr. Skinner uses FemiLift to help patients near Birmingham, AL, Huntsville, AL, southern Tennessee, and northern Georgia find comfort and confidence once again. FemiLift is an advanced laser technology that increases your body’s production of collagen (a protein that provides structural support to tissues) and elastin (a protein that adds strength to tissues). In a minimally invasive procedure, the FemiLift wand is inserted into the vagina to deliver this healing laser energy.

The FemiLift procedure improves your urethral sphincters, which are the muscles that control the flow of urine from your bladder. The result is reduced urine leakage – and a virtually worry-free life.

How long does it take for FemiLift to reduce urinary incontinence?

FemiLift is a quick procedure, and it only takes about 30 minutes in our office in Huntsville, AL. After your procedure, there’s almost no downtime. You’ll just need to avoid sexual intercourse or tampon use for three days to allow your body to heal.

You may notice results just one week following FemiLift. However, as your body continues to heal on its own and produces more collagen and elastin, you should notice your full results in about 18 – 24 months.

Some women experience their desired results after just one session with Dr. Skinner. But the majority of women see the most improvement after three sessions of FemiLift.
