Are you leaking when sneezing, coughing or exercising? Do you wake up to find that you’ve urinated in your sleep? Do you have the sensation of urinating during sexual intercourse? If you’ve answered “yes” to any of these questions, you may be suffering from urinary incontinence.
An uncomfortable condition, urinary incontinence is urine leakage as a result of certain activities that temporarily loosen the muscles of the vagina. UI can impact your daily activities and since it is a difficult subject to discuss many women write off occasional leakage as no big deal.
But, there is a solution.
Viveve® for UI
Harrington + Associates Plastic Surgery offers Viveve® as a treatment option for women with UI in and around the Plymouth area. Viveve® is a nonsurgical option for tightening the walls of the vagina via increased collagen production.*
How Does Viveve® Work?
Urinary incontinence is a result of weakened muscles and tissues in the vagina. Viveve® uses radio-frequency technology with integrated cooling to treat the vagina, encouraging collagen production in the tissue. As a result, the vaginal walls thicken and tighten, giving you more control over your body and thereby reducing leakage.*
Does Viveve® Treatment Hurt?
No, our patients report that Viveve® is painless, although some may find the treatment slightly uncomfortable. Viveve® is a safe treatment that uses only radio-frequency technology, with no incisions or surgery. Some women report experiencing a warming and/or cooling sensation during treatment.*
What Can I Expect After Treatment?
Our patients typically experience a decrease in urinary leakage within a few weeks, and as collagen production continues to improve, they continue seeing improvements over the following weeks. Treatment is designed to deliver results that last a year, but some women experience the benefits for even longer.*
