It is not uncommon for women to experience urinary incontinence after childbirth i.e. they leak a little urine when they cough, sneeze, laugh or exercise. But how can you treat bladder leakage after pregnancy.
What causes bladder leakage after pregnancy?
Bladder leakage after pregnancy often occurs because of the extra pressure put on the muscles of the pelvic floor during pregnancy. This added pressure can cause the pelvic muscles to stretch and weaken.
How Can I Treat Bladder Leakage After Pregnancy?
You can treat bladder leakage after pregnancy with Viveve. Viveve is a safe, effective, virtually painless vaginal rejuvenation treatment that can relieve bladder leakage. It also treats vaginal laxity and vaginal dryness.
What is Viveve?
Viveve is a vaginal rejuvenation treatment that uses monopolar radiofrequency energy to deep heat the vaginal tissues, in order to rebuild collagen. As collagen remodels the vaginal tissues become plumper, tighter, and healthier.
How Viveve helps bladder leakage
Viveve not only tightens the tissues of the vaginal wall, it also strengthens the muscles and tissues that surround the urethra, and this improves bladder control. Treatment takes approximately 30 minutes.
How many Viveve treatments do I need?
It typically takes only a single Viveve treatment to resolve urine leakage.
Is there any downtime after Viveve?
There is no downtime after Viveve, so patients can resume normal activities immediately. However, they should refrain from intercourse for at least 48 hours.
How long do the results of Viveve Last?
The results of Viveve typically last 1-2 years.
