Urinary urgency or incontinence is believed – according to the NHS – to affect millions of people. From stress incontinence (when urine leaks out when you cough or laugh) to urge incontinence (when urine leaks as you feel a sudden urge to pass urine), to overflow incontinence and total incontinence, there are multiple strains of the condition.
Each can prove a hindrance to the patients we see, with overflow incontinence meaning they’re unable to fully empty their bladder (resulting in frequent leaking) and total incontinence resulting in them having to pass urine constantly.
If you’re affected by any of the above, there’s something you can do…say hello to the HIFU vaginal machine, which can improve urinary urgency and incontinence. It can also be beneficial for your love life, offering increased sensitivity and lubrication, as well as an improvement to the appearance of your intimate area.
HIFU stands for High Intensity Focused Ultrasound and it can help if childbirth or menopause have caused otherwise-irreversible changes to the health of your vagina.
One of our clients – a parent to three children – found that she was constantly running to the loo. So, she visited us with the hope of us helping her urinary urgency issue – and we can report that she is more than satisfied with the outcome.
How does vaginal tightening work?
Utilising a non-invasive, ultrasonic technique which focuses on the mucosal lamina and the muscle layer, the system works to reorganise the collagen ‘down below’, ensuring the normal tissue outside of the focal region is left undamaged. During the process, vaginal tightening is achieved, and a happy client is the outcome.
Reducing infection by improving the health of your vagina, it’s a painless, non-invasive treatment which takes less than half an hour. There’s no downtime and no effect on fertility, either.
What do I need to do post-treatment?
So, you’ve visited our clinic for the treatment and you will, of course, receive thorough instructions regarding what to do when you leave our premises.
You’ll be pleased to discover special care won’t be needed; just a normal clean of your intimate area. There may be slight swelling of the vagina following the treatment, but this is nothing to worry about and it generally subsides within five hours.
You may notice a few small spots of blood in your underwear, too, but this will generally disappear within a few days or weeks.
