Bladder Control Difficulty
Urinary incontinence is a common symptom of menopause and aging and can greatly impact a woman’s life. You may feel as though you cannot play sports, jump, run, cough or sneeze without the embarrassment of leakage. Urinary incontinence occurs when weakened pelvic muscles, caused by decreasing estrogen levels associated with menopause, fail to hold back urine. In addition, overweight women may be more susceptible to urinary leakage because excess weight can add further strain on the pelvic floor muscles. If you are suffering from urinary incontinence, you do not have to accept occasional bladder leakage as another side effect of menopause. Ask your physician how the MonaLisa Touch, a nonsurgical fractional laser treatment, can help rejuvenate the pelvic floor muscles, vaginal walls and urethra. The quick and virtually painless laser treatment increases blood flow and helps build collagen, which reduces pain and leads to better urinary function. Many women report an improvement in their symptoms after receiving the treatment. The MonaLisa Touch also tones and lubricates the vagina, resulting in less pain and more enjoyment during sex.
