You Are Not Alone: Urinary Incontinence Happens to 1 in 3 Women.

You Are Not Alone: Urinary Incontinence Happens to 1 in 3 Women.

In a recent article for Women’s Health, Georgie Lane-Godfrey takes a candid look at incontinence and asks the question: Could urinary incontinence actually be easily cured? One of the non-surgical options explored is Emsella, a treatment we offer our clients here at Renova. Here’s an excerpt from the article:

So after the birth of my daughter left me with post-partum bladder prolapse, and, subsequently, urinary incontinence, I felt overwhelmingly alone. None of my friends with children had ever mentioned this being an issue, and yet here I was, having to dehydrate myself before leaving the house, always carrying spare underwear and changing soaked pads multiple times a day.

It was only when one friend came over with her baby to visit and went to the loo three times before heading home again that I began to wonder. Eventually, she confided that she also never travels anywhere without a completely empty bladder – the risk is just too high.

Look, we’ve been friends for over 10 years. We’ve shared countless secrets and frequently discussed our sex lives in detail. And yet, the shame surrounding urinary incontinence is so great, she didn’t feel she could tell me about this all-too-common problem.

In fact, it’s estimated that a staggering one in three women in the UK are affected by urinary incontinence. But the reality is that this figure could be even higher, since research shows that women are unlikely to report problems due to embarrassment.

Tatiana Bido tried four different nonsurgical treatments-here’s what happened.

Emsella, one of the many technologies we use here at Renova, was recently featured in an article by Tatiana Bido for New Beauty.

Here’s a quick excerpt:

As an aesthetic editor who gets to research the latest cosmetic treatments, I’m in the unique position to be able to try today’s most effective technologies for tightening, toning and treating the body as soon as they hit the market. What I’ve learned from getting to test-drive various nonsurgical contouring treatments is that “perfecting” anything on my body in my 40s is a stretch.

I’ve also learned that these noninvasive options take patience and are good for treating small target areas of pinchable fat and for moderate tightening and toning, so having realistic expectations is key. Most noninvasive treatments require multiple sessions and continued maintenance to keep results longterm, but I’ve also found they’re very effective for taking care of small bothersome concerns.

Emsculpt treatment review from InStyle!

Emsculpt treatment review from InStyle!

Renova has offered Emsculpt (and Emsculpt NEO) to our Indianapolis customers since we first opened our doors, and it is helping a lot of our customers reveal the most beautiful version of themselves. We found this great review of Emsculpt at InStyle by Pia Velasco, and thought we should share it with you – here’s a quick excerpt:

If you’ve grown up crunching abs to no avail, you may relate. I’ve been an athlete my whole life, but no matter how many hours I put in the gym or how many marathons I run, my lower abs always remained hidden under a layer of stubborn (yet cute) fat. It was never something that kept me up at night — after all, all bodies are beautiful and I’m very proud of mine — but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t sometimes wish my abs would show.

But hey, that’s genetics! Sometimes, no matter how balanced of a diet you eat or how long you can hold a plank, your body won’t change that much. Obviously it’s not the end of the world, but if you do want to get those visible results, in-office treatments can get you there.

Namely, Emsculpt — and it’s so easy to do, too. Unlike other treatments which may leave you very sore or require down time, with Emsculpt you’re in and out. Plus, each session gets easier to tolerate as you get used to the heat and contractions.
