Is Vaginal Rejuvenation Right For You? Exploring Treatment Options For Incontinence

At Skinworks Wellness & Aesthetics, we understand that feeling your best goes beyond just looking good. It’s about embracing both inner and outer vitality, and that includes addressing challenges that can impact your quality of life. One such concern, incontinence, affects millions of women and can significantly affect confidence. Here, we explore how vaginal rejuvenation can be a potential solution, empowering you to reclaim control and live life to the fullest.

Understanding Incontinence

Incontinence refers to the involuntary loss of bladder or bowel control. It’s a surprisingly common issue, affecting millions of people worldwide. While it can be embarrassing, it’s important to remember that incontinence is a medical condition and not something to be ashamed of.

Here’s a breakdown of incontinence:

Types of Incontinence:

The two main types are:

  • Urinary incontinence: This is the involuntary leakage of urine.
  • Bowel incontinence: This is the involuntary leakage of stool.

Urinary incontinence can be further categorized based on the cause:

  • Stress incontinence: Leaks occur during activities that put pressure on the bladder, like coughing, sneezing, laughing, or exercising. This is often linked to weakened pelvic floor muscles, which normally support the bladder.
  • Urge incontinence: This is a sudden and strong urge to urinate, often followed by involuntary leakage. It can be caused by bladder irritation, infections, or neurological conditions.
  • Mixed incontinence: a combination of stress and urge incontinence.
  • Overflow incontinence: The bladder doesn’t empty, leading to dribbling or leakage.

Causes of Incontinence:

Various factors can contribute to incontinence, including:

  • Weakened pelvic floor muscles: These muscles support the bladder and urethra (urine passage). Childbirth, aging, and obesity can weaken them.
  • Neurological conditions: Conditions like stroke, Parkinson’s disease, or multiple sclerosis can affect nerve signals controlling the bladder.
  • Urinary tract infections (UTIs): UTIs can irritate the bladder and trigger urgency or leakage.
  • Prostate problems in men: An enlarged prostate can block the urethra, leading to overflow incontinence.
  • Surgery: Certain surgeries, like hysterectomy in women or prostate surgery in men, can increase the risk of incontinence.

Treatment Options:

Incontinence is often treatable with various approaches, depending on the type and cause. Here are some examples:

  • Pelvic floor muscle exercises (Kegels): Strengthening these muscles can improve bladder control for stress incontinence.
  • Lifestyle changes: Maintaining a healthy weight, managing fluids, and avoiding bladder irritants like caffeine can help.
  • Bladder retraining: techniques to help regain control over urination.
  • Medications: Certain medications can help relax the bladder or treat underlying conditions.
  • Medical devices: pessaries (inserts) for women or catheters (tubes) can be used in some cases.
  • Surgery: In severe cases, surgery might be an option to correct structural problems or tighten pelvic muscles.

Vaginal Rejuvenation for Functional Improvement

While vaginal rejuvenation is sometimes associated solely with cosmetic benefits, its applications extend far beyond appearance. Skinworks Wellness leverages this technology to address functional concerns like incontinence.

Restoring Strength: How Vaginal Rejuvenation Works

Skinworks Wellness offers several innovative vaginal rejuvenation options. Here’s a glimpse into these popular methods:

  • V-Tone: This treatment relies on electromagnetic stimulation (EMS) to strengthen the pelvic floor and vaginal muscles.  It treats multiple forms of incontinence and is particularly great for stress incontinence, which presents as urination when sneezing, laughing, picking up heavy objects, etc.
  • Forma-V: This treatment uses controlled radiofrequency to heat, tighten and repair both the inner and outer vaginal tissues. This leads to improved levels of lubrication, sensitivity, and tightening and can also improve the appearance of the external tissue.
  • Morpheus8V: This device uses radiofrequency (RF) + microneedling technology to rejuvenate the vagina while increasing collagen, elastin and blood flow.  Great for women who are perimenopause or postmenopause, as it improves vaginal dryness, laxity, pain with intercourse, etc. This can also be used externally to tighten and improve the appearance. This treatment has also been beneficial in repairing tissue from illnesses like lichen sclerosis. 

Benefits Beyond Leakage Control

The benefits of vaginal rejuvenation for incontinence extend beyond simply reducing leaks. Here are some additional advantages you might experience:

  • Increased lubrication: Improved blood flow and collagen production can lead to increased vaginal moisture, enhancing comfort and intimacy.
  • Enhanced sexual satisfaction: Tighter vaginal walls can lead to a more pleasurable sexual experience for both you and your partner.
  • Improved confidence: Regaining control over your bladder can significantly boost confidence and overall well-being.

Who Can Benefit from Vaginal Rejuvenation?

If you experience incontinence, particularly stress incontinence, vaginal rejuvenation could be a promising solution. Additionally, women who are postpartum and struggling with weakened pelvic floor muscles may find significant benefits from these treatments.
