A word from Tawnie Lavallee, Medical Aesthetician at Kettman Aesthetics Center
Ok ladies! Let’s discuss feminine health and urinary incontinence. Yes, this is a problem many of us face. In fact, 50% of women have stress incontinence issues and it increases even more post-menopausal, typically by the age of 50.
This starts for many women in their 20’s, after child birth, or after the body is dealing with excessive weight or obesity. The pelvic wall gets weak and the bladder will start to leak. I think some of us have experienced those moments when you feel a sneeze coming on and you worry that you might have a little leak. Every time you sneeze, cough, run, jump, or even laugh you must be on high alert, so you don’t wet your pants.
I always notice at the gym when we start jumping jacks or running, half of the women run off the floor and to the bathroom. No one wants to wear urine pads for the rest of your life and worry about the smell or leaking through. You can wear yoga pants in colors, not just black!
Votiva is the latest FDA approved non-invasive device designed for women’s intimate health. It uses radiofrequency energy to remodel and tighten the tissue responsible for embarrassing leaks. Votiva FormaV addresses laxity of internal and external vaginal tissue using gentle thermal tissue remodeling. FractoraV is designed for external areas only such as the majoria labia and can address laxity and skin texture.
This has been highly requested treatment and the results have been very successful. Patients love, love, love this service! Wouldn’t it be great to be able to go somewhere special, to play with your kid and grandkids, or to just be active without the worry that you might accidently leak.
