Forget the Pads — Vaginal Rejuvenation Can Stop the Urinary Leaks

Have you ever had an embarrassing moment like this? One minute you’re laughing with your friends, the next minute you’re running to the bathroom because some urine leaked out. It can happen anywhere or any time, even when you sneeze. 

You can wear pads every day to protect yourself from these mini accidents, or you can try something better. Here at Longoria OBGYN in El Paso, Texas, Dr. Leonardo A. Longoria offers vaginal rejuvenation to help with minor urinary incontinence.

What is minor urinary incontinence?

Minor urinary incontinence, also called stress incontinence, occurs when you laugh, cough, or sneeze, and urine leaks out. This may happen if your pelvic muscles have weakened from childbirth or from getting older. It’s more common than you think.

This is a problem faced by many women, but some are too embarrassed to talk about it, even with their closest family members or friends. They may think the only solution is to wear bulky pads or special leak-proof underwear. 

If this is how you’re handling your urinary leakage, it’s important to know that you’re not alone. We can help you during a regular appointment in our office. No one will ever know you had a procedure done unless you tell them.

How vaginal rejuvenation can help

We offer ThermiVa, a device that transmits radiofrequency energy into your vaginal tissues. The gentle, safe heat causes the tissue to contract and tighten. As a result, you’ll have less urine leakage. You may also get other benefits like improved vaginal moisture and increased sensation when you have sex.

Each ThermiVa session lasts up to 30 minutes, and we recommend three sessions to achieve the best results. Keep in mind some women need maintenance treatments yearly. For severe cases of urinary incontinence, ThermiVa may not be the best option. Discuss your concerns with Dr. Longoria when you come in for a consultation.

The benefits of ThermiVa

ThermiVa is a nonsurgical procedure with no anesthesia, no cutting, and no bleeding. It has many other benefits, too, including:

If you’re ready to give up on pads and try something new for minor urinary leaks, make an appointment with Dr. Longoria today. Use our convenient online booking tool or call our office at 915-201-1165.
