At Laser Aesthetic in Methuen, we provide Viveve feminine rejuvenation treatments to treat urinary incontinence in women. If you suffer from stress incontinence as a result of vaginal laxity, these treatments can tighten and strengthen the vaginal walls, urethra and tissues behind the bladder to prevent future leakage. Instead of surgery, the Viveve System provides sustained tissue tightening and strengthening by substantially heating the tissue at depth. By heating the areas with cryogen-cooled monopolar radiofrequency, new collagen will be stimulated. This new collagen will help to tighten and hydrate your intimate areas, resulting in less leakage. Stress urinary incontinence can be treated with just one 30-45 minute procedure.
