Incontinence and Intimacy issues
How common is Incontinence?
1 in 4 people (men and women)
1 in 2 women over 65 have stress, urge and mixed urinary incontinence and/or an overactive bladder resulting in multiple bathroom trips.
50% of people with incontinence are under 50.
Night trips to the bathroom
Getting up more than once a night is not a normal part of getting older and is not something you should have to live with and is a real medical condition that deserves treatment as it deserves quality of sleep
1 in 3 adults over age 30 make two or more nightly bathroom trips.
Sexual dysfunction and intimacy issues
58% of mothers one year after childbirth suffer sexual dysfunction due to insufficient lubrication, abnormal vaginal sensation, vaginal laxity, vaginal tightness, pain with intercourse and/or incontinence during intercourse.
Many women have intimacy issues, such as loss of libido, dryness, discomfort, painful intercourse and achieving orgasm.
Men also suffer from incontinence, prostatitis and issues relating to sexual response and libido.
Kegel exercises are the most commonly recommended solution, although people are inconsistent over life and many are unsure on how to or if they are using the correct muscles. There are now some excellent non surgical management devices to reduce and in many eliminate symptoms. We are delighted to be able to help so many with this distressing condition.

Patient Testimonial “It’s with delight that I can provide a testimonial to the Forma V&V Tone treatments received by Dr Judy Craig at Natural Looks. Prior to treatments I had three main concerns: stress incontinence, urge incontinence and general uncomfortable feeling of burning and dryness in the vagina. There was also discomfort during intimacy. I was made to feel welcome, comfortable and my privacy was respected. Treatments were very easy to manage, there was no discomfort or pain at any stage and I was not nervous, understanding how the treatments would be performed. Options for numbing were offered but not needed! There was simply a feeling of warmth in the Forma V and some muscle contraction in the V Tone. Now I don’t have to rush to the bathroom losing urine along the way in either small or larger amounts. I can arrive home calmly to the door, put the key in without stress and walk (not run) to the bathroom.
Stress at home or work affects me less in terms of urgency which provides comfort. My partner and I have both noticed intimacy is easier and certainly for me more pleasurable, definitely more lubricated naturally and finding orgasm stronger.
All in all a perfect investment in my health and sense of well-being – empowering!”
