Incontinence Q & A

Stirling Skin Care Clinic

What causes incontinence?

Multiple issues can lead to incontinence. In cases of stress incontinence, weakened pelvic floor muscles cause urine to leak, particularly when you laugh, sneeze, or cough. It can also occur during exercise or weight lifting. Stress incontinence often occurs after pregnancy and childbirth due to the stretching of these muscles.

If you have urge incontinence, also called overactive bladder, you get the urge to urinate, and it comes on quickly and powerfully (you may not make it to the bathroom in time).

Nerve and muscle damage often cause urge incontinence, and it’s usually associated with conditions that impact your nerves like diabetes, multiple sclerosis, and strokes.

Overflow incontinence occurs when you struggle to empty your bladder, leading to urine dribbling out afterward. It’s often caused by:

  • Weak bladder muscles
  • Nerve damage
  • Enlarged prostate
  • Constipation
  • Certain medications

Are there habit changes that can improve incontinence?

In some cases, Dr. Cory or Dr. Renee may counsel you on habits you can change to improve your incontinence. They may recommend:

  • Limiting how much you drink
  • Avoiding caffeine, carbonated beverages, and spicy foods
  • Starting Kegel exercises to strengthen your pelvic floor
  • Engaging in bladder retraining

How do you treat incontinence?

At Stirling Skin Care Clinic, you can receive a range of treatments to improve your incontinence. Depending on your specific case, Dr. Cory and Dr. Renee may suggest:

Medication

Dr. Cory or Dr. Renee can prescribe medication to help control your bladder function.

BotoxⓇ

If your incontinence results from leakage from an overactive bladder, Botox injections may help. Your skin care specialist can inject Botox into specific areas of your bladder muscle, interfering with its communication to your brain that causes your overactive bladder.

PRP Therapy for incontinence

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy uses your body’s natural healing mechanisms to restore tissue functioning regardless if you suffer from stress incontinence or urge incontinence. Dr. Cory and Dr. Renee collect platelets and other growth factors from your blood and inject it to stimulate the production of stem cells, leading to tissue restoration and regeneration.

CO2 laser treatments for incontinence

Using CO2 laser treatments, Dr. Renee and Dr. Cory can treat incontinence. These fractional lasers create microablations on your skin, stimulating your body’s natural healing response. This response leads to an increase in collagen and elastin, proteins that keep your tissue healthy and strong.
