About Urinary Incontinence Treatment

At Peak Aesthetics, our caring staff knows the dilemma and anxiety you may experience when dealing with urinary incontinence. Also known as bladder leakage, the disorder can arise when physical stress is placed on the bladder and urinary sphincter, such as when you cough, sneeze, laugh, or engage in strenuous activity. This involuntary problem is often caused by body shifts pertaining to giving birth, pregnancy, and menopause. Board-certified family physician Benjamin Pinner, MD utilizes the Alma FemiLift laser device to provide urinary incontinence treatment. This minimally invasive procedure helps to increase your body's natural generation of collagen and elastin, which can improve weak urethral sphincters and reduce urges. Get in touch with our office in Peak, SC to find out more, and book a consultation with Dr. Pinner.

Frequently Asked Questions

How many treatments will I need?

The appropriate number of sessions needed to treat bladder leakage may differ, depending on your specific problem. Customarily, the majority of women should need 2 – 3 treatments spread out over a few weeks. Once Dr. Pinner has an opportunity to sit down with you and identify your symptoms at Peak Aesthetics, we will then offer you a much clearer picture of your best treatment plan.

What are the different types and causes of urinary incontinence?
All of us have particular muscles and nerves within our bodies that help our bladder in its strength to control the flow of urine. If these nerves and muscles incur damage, it may significantly affect our capability to hold in urine. Women are particularly at risk for this condition since there are a number of specific incidents that can directly trigger the condition, including childbirth, pregnancy, and menopause. There are a few different kinds of urinary incontinence, like:

  • Functional
  • Urge
  • Overflow
  • Overactive
  • Stress
  • Transient

Is urinary incontinence permanent?
No, urinary incontinence can be addressed with numerous different methods. In some cases, if the patient is suffering from a UTI, vaginal infection, or constipation, it will probably recover on its own as soon as the urinary tract has fully recovered. More serious problems may require treatment that could stretch out over several weeks or months, depending on a few considerations. These circumstances generally develop when a patient has abnormal urethral sphincters or nerve damage.
