Women’s health

What is it?

The life cycle of women can bring its share of small inconveniences! While pregnancy and childbirth can lead to bladder weakness, menopause can increase vaginal discomfort. Because pelvic health evolves over time and is an essential component of women’s health, it is important to manage the signs and symptoms of certain ailments before they become very uncomfortable.

Did you know?

1 in 3 women suffers from stress urinary incontinence.

What are the causes?

From the weakening of the pelvic floor muscles to the thinning of vaginal mucosa, pelvic health sometimes shows the most unpleasant signs with direct consequences on women’s quality of life. These inconveniences can have different causes:

Pregnancy

Most women experience small bladder weakness during pregnancy. This is called “stress incontinence” because of the pressure exerted on the bladder by the increasingly large uterus. The muscles and tissues that make up the perineum have a certain capacity for support, which becomes limited when the weight resting on them becomes too great. Muscles and tissues can then become too stretched and weak.

Childbirth

The stretching of vaginal tissue during childbirth can cause damage to it. This new damaged tissue may then lead to some urinary incontinence, which varies in frequency and circumstances.

Menopause

At the time of menopause, the decrease in estrogen production leads to a thinning of the vaginal mucosa and a loss of elasticity and hydration. This can result in irritation, discomfort, susceptibility to urinary tract infections and increased pain.

Medical conditions

Treatments for certain medical conditions such as chemotherapy and medication to treat breast cancer, endometriosis or fibroids can reduce estrogen levels and result in changes and drying of the vaginal wall.

How to prevent?

Strengthening of the pelvic floor

In order to effectively prevent incontinence, it is essential to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles. These targeted exercises – sometimes called “Kegels” – should be adapted to the general health condition; it is therefore important to seek advice from a health professional.

Appropriate hygiene

The use of a very gentle, fragrance-free cleanser that respects the natural pH of this delicate area helps protect the skin barrier and thus limit the discomfort associated with vaginal dryness.

Appropriate medication

In postmenopausal women, the use of medication can sometimes be useful. The recommendations of a doctor are always to be taken into consideration.

How to treat?

Santé féminine

ULTRA Femme 360TM


This non-invasive technology uses radiofrequency, delivering heat that stimulates collagen production, to firm and rejuvenate internal and external vaginal tissues. This treatment is particularly effective against the changing and drying of tissues related to menopause disorders, but also against urinary incontinence caused by one or more deliveries.

DiVaTM


DiVaTM laser treatment is a non-invasive hybrid procedure using two types of rays that restore the appearance and function of the vaginal area. DiVaTM stimulates the production of collagen and elastin in skin cells and also boosts blood flow to the treated areas, which allows an effective tightening of vaginal tissues. This technology makes it possible to target specific regions in order to precisely treat urinary incontinence or the elasticity and drying of tissues.

Emsella chair

EMSELLA®


Based on HIFEM technology, EMSELLA® uses ultra-concentrated electromagnetic beams that stimulate the muscles supporting the bladder and other vital organs. This non-invasive treatment effectively improves pelvic muscle tone, whether affected by childbirth, hormonal changes or simply the aging process.
