At Elan Med Spa & Clinic, our caring staff understands the anxiety you may face when dealing with urinary incontinence. Lack of bladder control can develop due to shifts in hormones that lead to less tissue elasticity, such as shifts that occur after birth, during pregnancy, and with the onset of menopause. This condition can then trigger when the muscles around the bladder experience extra physical stress, like when you sneeze, cough, or laugh. Dr. Darrel Pierce utilizes the Alma FemiLift Pixel CO2 laser technology to perform urinary incontinence treatment. This minimally invasive procedure works to foster your body’s natural generation of elastin and collagen, which can improve weak bladder muscles and reduce leakage.

Q: How many treatments will I need?
A: The number of sessions required to treat urinary incontinence may differ for each patient. On average, we recommend 2 – 3 appointments spread out over the course of 3 – 4 weeks. Once Dr. Pierce has a chance to sit down with you and assess your needs firsthand, we can provide you a much clearer idea of your optimal treatment regimen.
Q: What are the different types and causes of urinary incontinence?
A: All of us have nerves and muscles within our bodies that aid the bladder in controlling urine flow. When these muscles and nerves are damaged or become chemically weakened by hormonal changes, it may greatly impact our ability to hold in urine. Women are particularly at risk for this condition, as there are a number of unique circumstances that can directly trigger incontinence, like childbirth, pregnancy, and menopause. There are numerous types of urinary incontinence, such as:

Q: Is urinary incontinence permanent?
A: Fortunately, urinary incontinence can be addressed with a number of treatment approaches. In particular cases, such as when the person is dealing with a urinary tract infection, constipation, or vaginal infection, incontinence will likely disappear on its own after the underlying condition heals. More severe situations can require treatment that could stretch out over several months or weeks. These circumstances generally stem from when a person has weak urethral sphincters or damage to the nerves. In any case, at Elan Med Spa & Clinic, we are here to help.
