Urinary Incontinence

A quarter of all women and over half of women by age 50 have experienced mild to moderate incontinence. This could look like having to suddenly go more frequently or leaking urine during certain activities, such as coughing, sneezing or exercise. In some instances, you may have no warning or sensation of the leakage. Urinary incontinence (UI) can become more common as people age or due to life events, such as childbirth or injury. Just because this becomes more common does not mean it’s something you should have to put up with. If you have noticed an increase in leakage your Modern Age clinician is here.

What does urinary incontinence feel like?

For some, this means having to suddenly go more frequently or leaking urine during certain activities, such as coughing, sneezing or exercise. This could look like damp spots on your leggings during a workout or releasing a little bit of urine when you laugh at a comedy show. In some instances, you may have no warning or sensation of the leakage.

Treatments

  • Electromagnetic Pelvic Floor Therapy

    Strengthen pelvic floor muscles with electromagnetic energy to treat unwanted urinary leaks. In a small clinical study, 95% of patients saw improvement in incontinence after completing 3 sessions.

  • Intravaginal Radiofrequency

    Radiofrequency energy works to increase blood circulation and stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin. This can help tighten the vaginal area, promoting stronger tissue and supporting bladder control.

Frequently Asked Questions

I am experiencing urinary incontinence and don't know where to start. Who can I speak with?
If you’re experiencing stress incontinence (meaning leaks with pressure from laughing, sneezing, or jumping) or urge incontinence (sudden bladder pressure leading to leaks) our clinical team would be happy to discuss your options with you. Book a complimentary virtual consultation, and we'll ask you a few questions about your symptoms to decide if treatment might be right for you.

Why is the pelvic floor important, and what causes a weak pelvic floor?
The pelvic floor is made up of a set of invisible muscles that attach at the bottom of your pelvis. They help stabilize your core and impact fundamental activities like sex and bladder control. Your pelvic floor also provides protection to your spine and organs when you do certain activities, like lifting, coughing or laughing. When your pelvic floor muscles are healthy and strong, you are able to both relax and squeeze them voluntarily. Weak pelvic floor muscles impact your ability to do these activities and control your bladder at the same time. 
Your pelvic floor can become weaker due to childbirth, pregnancy, obesity, injury, or changing hormones.

How does having a baby impact the pelvic floor and urinary incontinence?
During pregnancy, women carry extra weight, which puts extra downward pressure on their pelvic floor, stretching out these muscles. Some women do naturally rebuild their pelvic floor post childbirth, but for many women, pelvic floor therapy can help encourage that connection to their core and stronger pelvic floor muscles.

How does Menopause impact the pelvic floor and urinary incontinence?
Menopausal and post menopausal women can have a weakened pelvic floor. During menopause, our estrogen levels decrease, which leads to a decrease in muscle mass. This impacts every type of muscle in the body, including the pelvic floor. Women experiencing menopause symptoms are often encouraged to incorporate more strength training into their routines. Electromagnetic Pelvic Floor Therapy can help strengthen the pelvic floor specifically.

How does pelvic floor therapy help?
Pelvic floor therapy helps strengthen the pelvic floor muscles through targeted exercises,  primarily kegels. Modern Age’s Electromagnetic Pelvic Floor Therapy accomplishes this faster, by helping the body produce over 11,000 kegels in a single 28 minute session. Over a number of sessions (as guided by your Modern Age clinician), this will help ease any pelvic  floor related issues, like urinary incontinence.

I am in my 30s and have been dealing with aging for the past couple of years and have been going to a Med Spa in UES so I decided to check them out. She did a fabulous job on my cheek fillers and the different was night and day immediately after the treatment. Definitely returning here without a question.

Such a delightful experience. The space is absolutely gorgeous and serene. My specialist made me feel completely comfortable throughout my first Botox treatment. I felt great when I walked out and am excited to come back for a hormone panel and future skin treatments.

I had a great experience at Modern Age. Clinicians at other places can be curt and rush you through everything — that doesn’t happen at MA. They even had a special vibrating tool to help distract me from the Botox shots going in! This place exudes luxury and science. I will definitely be going back!!

I loved my experience at Modern Age! I got the NAD+ IV treatment and I felt incredible after. I had more energy, brighter skin, and mental clarity. Plus, the staff and studio space were bright, clean, and welcoming. I can’t wait to go back for my next treatment!

I had a great experience here. I have tried places like this in the past that felt pushy but Modern Age was not. The clinical staff here were extremely knowledgeable and kind. The space itself was beautiful and relaxing. I had micro needling done and am thrilled with the results already. Highly recommend!

Modern Age's approach to integrative health is truly one-of-a-kind. Wellness trends emerge daily & decision fatigue is real. "What's the best path for me?" has become a confusing question to answer, but Modern Age IS that filter. Their approach offers personalized mapping that ensures you're headed down the right path.
