Top Urinary Incontinence Doctor in Maryland
Urinary incontinence is a very common problem for women. It is not only something that affects them when they get older. Women in their 30s or even 20s can struggle with this issue after giving birth. Viveve can help to strengthen the pelvic floor, which will then reduce accidental leakage. Dr. Okasi offers the revolutionary Viveve system to treat urinary incontinence.
There are two different types of urinary incontinence. The first is stress urinary incontinence. This is the one more commonly associated with women who have given birth. Stress urinary incontinence is when urine leaks when you cough, sneeze, jump, laugh, etc. The other type of incontinence is urge. This is where you are suddenly overwhelmed with the urge to go to the bathroom. Viveve can potentially help with both.
In most cases, only one treatment session is enough to get satisfactory results with Viveve. The session will take between 30 and 45 minutes. Afterward, most women do not experience any side effects or downtime. You can return to work or your other normal daily activities. It is recommended to abstain from intercourse for two days after your treatment.
Results do not appear right away but rather over time as the body works to make new collagen. You can expect to feel improvements within a few weeks. On average, peak results will appear anywhere from six to twelve weeks after your session. The results from a Viveve treatment have been known to last for a year or longer. Keep in mind that no procedure can slow down the aging process and a follow-up treatment will be required down the line if you would like to maintain your results.
