By: Jackie Briles, Aesthetician


Urinary incontinence can be an uncomfortable and concerning issue for many women. At FitSkin Laser & Med Spa in Portland, OR, aesthetician Jackie Briles takes a comprehensive approach to managing and treating this condition. Utilizing the innovative FemiLift® Pixel CO2 system from Alma, she provides advanced solutions for different types of incontinence, including functional urinary incontinence and mixed urinary incontinence.

Is incontinence a normal part of aging?

As people age, the muscles supporting the bladder and urethra may weaken, leading to this misconception. However, urinary incontinence is not solely an age-related issue. In fact, it can occur at any stage of life, from young adulthood to later years. Various reasons, such as hormonal changes, pregnancy and childbirth, surgery, or certain medical conditions, can contribute to incontinence, regardless of age. At FitSkin Laser & Med Spa in Portland, OR, we use FemiLift to effectively target these underlying causes, offering hope and relief to those of all ages suffering from this condition.

What are some different types of urinary incontinence?

Urinary incontinence is a broad term that encompasses different types, each with unique causes and symptoms:

  • Stress urinary incontinence: This occurs when pressure is exerted on the bladder, like during coughing, sneezing, or exercising.
  • Urge urinary incontinence: Also known as overactive bladder, this type is characterized by a sudden and uncontrollable urge to urinate.
  • Overflow urinary incontinence: When the bladder doesn't empty fully, it may lead to frequent or constant dribbling of urine.
  • Functional urinary incontinence: This type is caused by physical or mental conditions that prevent a timely trip to the bathroom.
  • Mixed urinary incontinence: A combination of different types, such as stress and urge incontinence.

Understanding the specific type of incontinence is crucial for effective treatment. Jackie specializes in identifying these differences and offering targeted solutions such as the FemiLift Pixel CO2 system. This approach ensures that each patient receives the care and recovery plan best suited to their unique situation.

How does the FemiLift Pixel CO2 system work for treating urinary incontinence?

The FemiLift system uses a controlled laser to stimulate the vaginal tissue, which naturally promotes collagen production. Collagen is essential in strengthening the muscles around the urinary tract, thus helping to control incontinence. The treatment is customized for each patient, taking into account the specific type and underlying cause of incontinence.
