From ED to vaginal rejuvenation, we’re trusted experts ready for any conversation.
Urinary incontinence in men and women can be caused by a variety of reasons. Luckily, Ovation has the most diverse array of treatments in Houston. Let’s take a look at some of the options we’ll go over in your consultation.
Your Options at Ovation

After we pinpoint the exact type and cause of your urinary incontinence in Houston, we’ll find the best treatment plan for you. Here is what we offer and why we choose each option.
DiVa uses a hybrid fractional laser to deliver heat energy deep into the tissue of the vaginal canal and surrounding area. This promotes cell regeneration at a faster, more productive rate while increasing the production of collagen. The process replaces damaged skin cells with new tissue, resulting in tighter tissue and less leakage.
Why Patients Love It
This treatment is often used for a lot more than just urinary incontinence. The hybrid fractional laser improves skin tightness and collagen, which makes it great for the look and feel of every treated area. It’s no question why most women also choose to boost their sexual health alongside this treatment with complimentary options as well!
Women and men alike often come in needing to restore their pelvic floor. To treat the most common causes of urinary incontinence in Houston, we often recommend Emsella.
What it does
We strengthen your pelvic floor by using high-Intensity focused electromagnetic energy. This stimulates thousands of muscle contractions in the pelvic floor and even the vaginal canal in one painless procedure. Emsella is like doing 11,000 kegels in 28 minutes! With a quick treatment time and compounding efficacy with every treatment, this is one of our most common recommendations for urinary incontinence in Houston.
Our third option improves women’s intimate area health from the inside out! With this completely non-invasive treatment, women can also reduce their urinary incontinence and increase their overall sexual wellness. This is a common recommendation to mothers because of the toll pregnancy takes on their bodies.
How it works
ThermiVa reduces urinary incontinence without incisions, ablation, or anesthesia. This device uses radiofrequency to improve collagen production making this one of the most non-invasive vaginal rejuvenation treatments available. That’s why women with and without kids come to Ovation for this treatment.
What’s causing your urinary incontinence?
Now that you know your options, let’s talk about what’s causing your urinary incontinence. Urinary incontinence in men and women can be similar at times, but their conditions usually start in very different ways. Here’s how we get to the heart of the issue.
Causes for Women
Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) is the most prevalent form of UI and is attributed to involuntary leakage on effort or exertion or during sneezing and coughing. SUI is more common in women than men. While we know about the root causes of SUI, everybody experiences stress differently. This is why building a tailored treatment plan is important. This is also why women who experience this type of incontinence come to us for diverse treatment options.
When we start to dig deeper into your health and lifestyle we can often decipher the root causes of your urinary incontinence. However, these causes can vary greatly between men and women. So when we talk to men about urinary incontinence, the conversation gets just as real as it does with women.
Causes for Men
Men are more likely to have urge incontinence than stress incontinence. For most guys, we talk about the urgency and frequency they need to go. The defining factor is if they describe that it’s frequent and always an emergency. A much larger amount of men experience urge urinary incontinence than women. But changes in the body can affect men and women in very similar ways.
Not everything should be bigger in Texas
When our specialists find benign prostatic hyperplasia – or an enlarged prostate – we take extra care when discussing treatment options. Growth, nocturia, and surgery can all affect the pelvic floor leading to damage to the sphincter muscle. This damage is one of the leading causes of urinary incontinence in Houston for men. However, women can experience similar incontinence due to changes in the pelvic floor caused by pregnancy, or menopause.
To dig deeper into what’s causing your urinary incontinence, let’s take a look at the types of urinary incontinence. Here are some common types and how we talk about them to determine what type you’re experiencing.
Common Types of Urinary Incontinence
Overactive bladder or OAB is the cause of involuntary leakage accompanied by or immediately preceded by urgency. This is also commonly referred to as urge urinary incontinence or UUI. Overactive bladder can stem from many conditions. But all of them can be traced back to muscles in your bladder contracting more than they should. This is why it’s important to talk to us about any underlying conditions you may have as well. The more we know, the better your specialist can determine what type of incontinence you’re experiencing.
MUI is the involuntary leakage associated with urgency stemming from exertion, effort, sneezing, or coughing. It’s a combination of SUI and UUI. This makes up a large percentage of women who suffer from urinary incontinence, so we take additional care when addressing this concern.
Urine leakage that is caused by a temporary situation, such as an infection or new medicine, We refer to this as transient or situational urinary incontinence. Here are a few common situations that lead to this type of incontinence.
- Environmental – Factors include not knowing where a bathroom is, or fear of not being able to make it to one.
- Medication – If you have changed medications recently, you may be experiencing an unforeseen side effect.
- Infection – Urinary tract infections are a common cause of SUIs. If we find that this is the case, we recommend you see a physician before continuing with our treatments.
There are a variety of causes for anyone suffering from urinary incontinence in Houston. While the conditions can vary between men and women, the conversations are just as hard for men and women. These are some of the common causes we find as we get real with guys about their urinary incontinence.
