On 23rd June the Daily Mirror featured FemiLift in the article ‘Are You Too Scared To Sneeze or Laugh?’. The article discusses the common issue amongst women of urinary incontinence and the embarrassment many feel when talking about it.
According to the Femifree survey that was carried out for World Incontinence Week this year, 68% of sufferers have not seen their GP for advice about the condition and 57% have never even spoken to their friends and family about it.
There are two types of urinary incontinence; stress incontinence and urgency incontinence. Stress incontinence occurs when the pelvic floor is weak and pressure from actions such as coughing, sneezing and exercise produce urine leakages.
Urgency incontinence is caused by the releasing of urine before the bladder is completely full due to the muscles in the bladder wall contracting involuntarily.
Urinary incontinence can have a significant impact on a woman’s quality of life – but there is a solution available. Courthouse Clinics offers FemiLift, a laser treatment that works to tighten the muscles inside the vagina for greater control over the passing of urine. It is a quick, pain-free procedure that requires no downtime or anaesthetic. The treatment also helps to better the sex lives of many women with improved sensation in the area.
