Read about the most effective urinary incontinence treatment in Kansas City by AesthetiCare’s experts! Age and profound life moments like childbirth, menopause, hysterectomy, or chemotherapy can naturally cause a woman’s body and the vagina to experience drastic changes.
With everything a woman’s body goes through ー and heals itself from ー throughout her life, it’s nothing short of miraculous. However, there are more intimate parts of the body that cannot go back to the way they once were without medical assistance.
All too often, women suffer in silence with intimate concerns like vaginal dryness or painful intercourse, and even potentially embarrassing dysfunctions like urinary incontinence.
If you have been experiencing any of these symptoms, take charge of your sexual wellness (and this month’s special!) and turn to the experienced team at AesthetiCare for our urinary incontinence treatment in Kansas City.
What is urinary incontinence?
Simply put, urinary incontinence is a loss of bladder control. The condition may range in severity from the occasional “leak” when you sneeze, cough, or exercise to sudden, strong urges to urinate.
Though it is a physical condition, the issue also affects many people’s self-confidence and social lives. Many Americans, men and women alike, experience this issue, but we find that many in Kansas City are too embarrassed to report the symptoms to their physician.
If you’re afraid to partake in activities that put you too far away from the bathroom, it may be time to contact AesthetiCare to learn about our incontinence treatment in Kansas City.
What causes urinary incontinence?
According to the American Urological Association’s Urology Care Foundation, aging is the biggest factor that increases a person’s risk of experiencing urinary incontinence.
For women, pregnancy, delivery, and the number of children can further increase this risk. Additionally, the decline in estrogen after menopause can contribute to the likelihood of experiencing urinary incontinence, though estrogen supplements have not shown to help reverse the condition.
Certain pelvic muscles (called the “pelvic floor”) control the bladder and urethra. Over time, these muscles weaken and cannot hold back the flow of urine as well as they once could. Vaginal childbirth can especially weaken the pelvic floor muscles required for bladder control—even to the point of prolapse. Additionally, any surgery that involves a woman’s reproductive system (e.g. hysterectomy) can damage the pelvic floor muscles, leading to urinary incontinence.
AesthetiCare’s urinary incontinence treatment in Kansas City
At some point in her life, every woman will experience a decline in their pelvic floor strength because of mechanical or hormonal events like menopause, pregnancy & childbirth, hysterectomy, or chemotherapy. Many women will seek a urinary incontinence treatment to address the symptoms of this decline.

diVa™ Laser Vaginal Therapy
The diVa™ laser vaginal therapy system by Sciton is a minimally invasive, in-office procedure that allows you to be in and out of our office in less than an hour. Our clients experience little to no discomfort and are free to leave our office and resume their regular daily activities immediately following treatment.
Unlike other vaginal therapies, the diVa laser utilizes state-of-the-art laser technology that allows us to tailor your laser vaginal treatment to your exact needs.
Taking your age, symptoms, and tissue condition of your vagina into account, we use the power of lasers to renew vaginal tissue in both the top and deeper layers, where other laser therapies may only treat the very top layer of tissue.
How does diVa treat urinary incontinence?
The diVa vaginal laser utilizes the latest hybrid fractional laser technology for faster treatment time and even more comprehensive results. We can even customize the depth of treatment based on your unique concerns and needs.
The first laser frequency works to resurface the outer layer of the vaginal wall, allowing new, healthy tissue to grow. The second frequency gently heats the deeper layers of tissue to stimulate collagen production, which can increase the thickness and elasticity of vaginal walls. This allows for increased natural lubrication and decreased laxity.
This newly increased thickness of tissue can also support the pelvic floor and allows for easier control over the bladder and urinary leakage.
Who is a good candidate for diVa laser therapy?
In general, healthy women who have been through childbirth or menopause and are experiencing urinary incontinence could benefit from diVa laser treatments.
This urinary incontinence treatment can also help address the following vaginal health concerns:
- Vaginal laxity (over-stretched vaginal tissue)
- Vaginal atrophy (Vaginal dryness, burning, itching, excess discharge, or decreased vaginal lubrication)
- Painful sexual intercourse
- Loss of sexual sensation because of thinning of vaginal tissue
Do treatments with the diVa laser hurt?
Our clients who have undergone diVa laser vaginal therapy report feeling comfortable throughout the entire 5 to 8 minute procedure.
Thanks to the topical numbing cream we apply before we begin, the sensation our clients describe as nothing more than gentle warming. Some may also feel a slight pressure against their vaginal wall or increased sensitivity near the vaginal opening while we insert the laser device.
BTL’s EMSELLA is the latest and greatest treatment offered at AesthetiCare! This urinary incontinence treatment in Kansas City is solely dedicated to helping those suffering from urinary incontinence overcome the symptoms with a non-invasive method.
If you are familiar with our EMSCULPT® treatment, you know that the device’s primary use is building muscle in the buttocks and abdomen with advanced electromagnetic technology. Similarly, EMSELLA is a targeted treatment that uses the same technology to strengthen pelvic floor muscles by causing thousands of supramaximal contractions in the pelvic floor in a single 30-minute session at our Leawood office.
Though you should feel a difference right away in the area’s strength, there is no downtime or recovery to worry about! We find that a series of 4 to 6 EMSELLA treatments is the most effective urinary incontinence treatment in Kansas City.
What happens during an EMSELLA treatment?
On the day of your EMSELLA treatment, you can arrive at our office in comfortable clothing – you will remain clothed throughout the treatment!
We will turn on the machine and set the intensity while you sit back for 28 minutes and reap the benefits of thousands of muscle-building contractions. All you have to do during your treatment is to sit comfortably upright on the EMSELLA chair, so bring a book or magazine!
Do EMSELLA treatments hurt?
Clients report minimal to no discomfort during an EMSELLA treatment. The device may cause mild tingling and you will feel your pelvic floor muscles contracting during the procedure. These will dissipate when the treatment is complete and the machine is off.
Our clients do not consider these sensations painful and you may continue your daily activities immediately after your treatment.
EMSELLA isn’t just for women, either
Men experience incontinence, too. If you know a friend, family member, or significant other is suffering from incontinence, encourage him to contact us for this incontinence treatment for men in Kansas City today!
