Pregnancy incontinence can occur amongst women during and after pregnancy and childbirth, due to reasons such as hormonal changes, medical conditions and extra physical pressure that is put on your bladder. To treat this, radio-frequency (RF) energy is delivered to the areas surrounding the vagina, including the pelvic floor muscles, remodelling and tightening it.
This is the condition where women experience leaking urine as the fetus develops or weeks after you give birth. As the fetus grows, it starts to apply pressure on your bladder and also weakening the pelvic floor muscles, the muscles responsible for holding your bladder. The extra pressure causes these muscles to weaken, resulting in a condition of urinary incontinence during pregnancy.
Doing pelvic floor exercises such as kegel exercises, eating food rich in fibre, or losing the extra weight gained during pregnancy—would aid in strengthening the pelvic floor muscles.
To further strengthen these muscles and prevent urinary incontinence, the radio-frequency (RF) energy treatment stimulates the production of collagen and the firming up of muscles in these areas.
