As ladies age and with repeated child births, many are embarrassed with urine leakage when they cough, sneeze, giggle, lifting a heavy object or performing vigorous exercise. This is due to the weakness of pelvic floor muscles which are not strong enough to prevent leakage of urine. Also, hysterectomy can sometimes cause stress incontinence.
Prostate surgery can cause stress incontinence in men because the prostate supports the urethra and the removal of the prostate can lead to a weakening of the muscles that hold urine in. Urinary tract infections can also cause stress incontinence. Obesity can put extra pressure on the bladder and urethra and might cause stress incontinence to occur.
Smoking causes chronic coughing, and coughing contributes greatly to stress incontinence.
For mild and moderate stress incontinence, we have a new treatment with laser. It is based on the science of photothermal stimulation of collagen growth, shrinking and tightening of vaginal mucosa tissue and collagen-rich endopelvic fascia, and subsequently gives greater support to the bladder.
Clinical studies show that it is an efficient , easy-to-perform and safe procedure.
The procedure is incisionless and virtually painless, with no ablation, cutting, bleeding, or sutures. Recovery is extremely quick without the need for analgesics or antibiotics.
Usually two sessions are recommended to alleviate mild or even moderate stress urinary incontinence. No special pre-op preparation or post-op precautions are necessary. Patients can immediately return to their normal everyday activities.
What Causes Painful Sex in Women?
In many cases, a woman can experience painful sex if there is not sufficient vaginal lubrication. Other causes could be:
Treatment is dependent on the cause of the pain. However, if the pain is due to dryness as a result of menopause, we have a laser that can help. This procedure is unique, patent-pending. It is incisionless, non-invasive. The laser causes photothermal tightening of the vaginal canal. Clinical studies have shown that it is an efficient, easy-to-perform, and safe procedure.
• By stimulating collagen remodeling and the synthesis of ne w collagen fibers in the vaginal mucosa tissue and collagen-rich endopelvic fascia, there is remodeling and tightening of the vaginal canal.
As a non-ablative, minimally invasive procedure, it is a safer, faster and more patient-friendly solution that avoids the undesirable complications present with other vaginal tightening methods. Clinical results show a tightened vaginal canal, greater sexual satisfaction and significant improvement in a patient’s quality of life.
Usually two sessions are recommended. No special pre-op preparation or post-op precautions are necessary. Patients can immediately return to their normal everyday activities.
Laser snoring treatments are usually done in the doctor’s office with the patient fully awake and sitting in a chair. Each session takes only 15 to 30 minutes. Afterward, the patient is able to eat, speak and return to daily activities. A severe sore throat is experienced by some patients following snoring treatments. Medication is available as necessary. A reduction in snoring after the first session is common. After the snoring treatments are completed, 85 percent of patients report that their snoring has been helped.
Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that uses a laser — an intense, pulsating beam of light — to remove unwanted hair.
During laser hair removal, a laser beam passes through the skin to an individual hair follicle. The intense heat of the laser damages the hair follicle, which inhibits future hair growth. Laser hair removal is most effective for people who have light skin and dark hair. Although laser hair removal effectively slows hair growth, it doesn’t guarantee permanent hair removal.
It typically takes multiple laser hair removal treatments to provide an extended hair-free period. Periodic maintenance treatments might be needed as well.
Fungal infectionis particularly common in toenails of older men but can affect of the nails of individuals of any age and sex. The treatment of this condition is complicated by the fact that these fungi live in dead tissue, and getting medications to these sites is problematic because the nail unit is relatively impenetrable.
Currently accepted treatments include relatively prolonged topical therapies and oral treatments which are reasonably effective but are associated with some degree of risk.
We have now a safe and effective treatment with laser, without the potential side-effects of oral medication or the slow topical nail lacquer. The laser heats the nail bed which stimulates killing of parasitic fungus. The natural growth and immune processes of the body are then able to restore the nail.
Compared to traditional methods, the effects of laser light spread evenly throughout the tissue and are not subject to either the limits of chemical diffusion (as are topicals) or the induction of hepatoxic side effects (as is the case with oral medications). Teatment is usually performed four times, at one week intervals. Laser light can also effectively treat fungus which has infected skin tissue.
Laser can be used to burn and destroy the wart tissue. It is usually done in the clinic. Local anaesthetic may be used, depending on the number of warts to be removed or the size of the area to be treated.
