Is it difficult for you to control your bladder in times of emergency? Do you have to refuse those long road trips with your friends? You may think that this is because you have a small bladder. But this may not be as simple. Urinary incontinence can be caused by urinary tract infections, pelvic floor disorders or even an enlarged prostate.

An uncontrollable bladder can be embarrassing for most people. A loss of such bladder control is frequently observed in older people, women who have recently given birth, and women who are going through menopause.

If a person can not control when their urine leaks out, it is a serious condition known as urinary incontinence. Factors such as stress from coughing fits can trigger it. This may also happen both during and after pregnancy. This is also linked more with obese people than with people that are not obese. Older people also have higher chances of getting urinary incontinence.

Before you think about urinary incontinence treatments, let us first know some symptoms to determine your condition. Urine leakage may occur when you :

  • Nervousness 
  • Sneezing
  • Exercising
  • Laughing
  • Coughing
  • Need to get up in the middle of the night to urinate more than twice

Many of the factors that cause urinary incontinence are usually the result of various occurrences throughout your life. Over time, the muscles supporting your pelvic organs and urinary bladder and urethra may get weaker. This is completely normal. 

These pelvic muscles can also become weaker and lose their elasticity in women as a result of major life events like recent pregnancy and childbirth through the natural labour process. Though similar to how you work out to strengthen your arms or legs, you can also

bolster the muscles in your pelvic floor. 

Strengthening your pelvic muscles through exercise will not stop you from having urinary incontinence concerns, but it can help you regain some control of your bladder over time.

Being in good physical shape and health will also aid you in gaining bladder control. Consult our experts here at Skin Club Cosmetic Doctors for simple initial remedies for Urinary Incontinence Treatment in melbourne.

Your doctor will try behavioural therapies, bladder training and several kegel exercises for your Urinary Incontinence Treatment at first. These therapies require patience and discipline before they show complete results. Our cosmetic clinic at Skin Club Cosmetic Doctors offers several non-surgical solutions perfectly suited to treat your urinary incontinence. 

Our experts will carefully diagnose your symptoms and determine the cause and level of your urinary incontinence. Only then will any treatment work effectively to cure your uncontrollable bladder. 

  • Bulking agents : 

These injections are generally offered to women with stress incontinence like coughing or a laughing fit. Your urethra’s lining is permanently injected with a chemical to aid in enlarging your urethral lining.

  • Botulinum toxin injections : 

You may know these as botox, and yes, these injections can work well for your urinary incontinence treatment by relaxing your muscles. Our Skin Club Cosmetic Doctor experts will inject botox in your bladder to aid in muscle relaxation. This is a semi-permanent treatment and has to be repeated once the effects wear off.

  • An artificial urethral sphincter :

This gadget is generally effective for men rather than women. Men suffering from urinary incontinence. Usually, this device is used after prostate cancer surgery as a form of urinary incontinence treatment. This sphincter is worn close to the urethra when a man is not urinating.

  • Neuromodulation devices :

These devices act as pacemakers, activating the bladder’s nerves. Also, to achieve better control over your bladder, a nerve near your ankle can also be induced and stimulated.

Consult our doctors for a permanent solution for your Urinary Incontinence Treatment and regain the confidence to remain outdoors all day without worrying about yourself.
