One of the most popular and promising new treatments for female incontinence is called VTone, and it’s available right now from LX Medical. But to understand the power of VTone, you should first know more about urinary incontinence.
What is regenerative medicine?
Did you know that more than half of all women will go through some type of urinary incontinence at some point in their lives? That statistic sounds shocking, but it makes sense when you consider what’s happening in a woman’s body. As women go through pregnancy, childbirth, aging, and hormonal changes, their pelvic floor muscles usually weaken gradually. When this happens, stress urinary incontinence and diminished sexual sensation often manifest.
Urinary incontinence and leaky bladder symptoms can be triggered by various actions, such as:
Of course, when a woman must think about incontinence overflow and subsequent products like incontinence pads, it can be embarrassing. Fortunately, VTone from LX Medical is a non-surgical way to minimize and even eliminate urinary incontinence from your life.
VTone: EMS and Re-Education for Urinary Incontinence
Are you experiencing issues with stress or urge incontinence? Perhaps you’re looking to improve your vaginal tightness, appearance, or sexual function. VTone may be the solution for you. This FDA-approved technology uses electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) and neuromuscular re-education to strengthen pelvic floor muscles.
VTone is a non-invasive treatment that strengthens and re-trains the muscles in the pelvic floor. It uses a single-use electro-stimulator placed in the vaginal canal to trigger involuntary muscle contractions. This toning and tightening of the pelvic floor can be especially helpful for postpartum prevention of urinary issues. It’s safe to perform as soon as six weeks postpartum, provided it’s cleared by your obstetrician.
If you’re experiencing laxity or loss of tone post-pregnancy, you may be a good candidate for VTone. Compared to some other vaginal rejuvenation treatments, VTone is a gentle procedure that can help improve your quality of life. It can be much more effective and efficient than physical therapy and has been shown to provide a month’s worth of Kegels in only 30 minutes.
Benefits of VTone include:
What Happens During VTone Therapy?
During VTone treatments, patients may feel a slight tingling sensation. This happens when the device causes contractions to stimulate your muscles. Overall, however, VTone treatments are painless, quick, and only last about 30 minutes. Some patients may experience minimal soreness, which usually subsides within one or two days. The treatment has been known to improve urinary control, reduce leakage, and enhance sexual sensation.
Results are often cumulative, with most patients receiving six to eight treatments with visible changes appearing a few weeks after the last session. Some patients may notice a difference after just one or two treatments. For the best results, you should consider annual maintenance treatments with LX Medical.
