Bid Farewell to Urinary Incontinence With ThermiVa!

by

Urinary incontinence is a common issue among women, but sadly, it is not talked about enough in our society. From leaking urine during exercise, sneezing, or laughing to sudden, frequent urges to urinate (which often result in wet pants), urinary incontinence is a problem that happens to many people, especially women of all ages. Approximately 13 million people live with urinary incontinence and plan their days around bathroom visits, wear adult diapers, or give up activities that they once enjoyed. Urinary incontinence not only causes quite a bit of unhappiness and physical distress, but also social isolation and a lack of confidence and control.

Now there is an easy, nonsurgical way to treat urinary incontinence that does not involve a prolapsed bladder – ThermiVa. This new, state-of-the-art treatment is an office-based procedure that works to tighten external and internal vulvovaginal tissue via controlled heat delivery. Women will experience a greater degree of bladder control both at rest and during physical activities. Best of all, this procedure requires no downtime, letting patients return to their everyday lives right away.
