Yesterday I had the pleasure of meeting Dr Patrick Campbell who runs a private clinic under the 352 umbrella. Local people will know that 352 offer a variety of private clinic appointments across all specialities. Dr Campbell is a consultant in the Belfast City Hospital alongside looking after his private patients from the Cosmetech Clinic which is located in Holywood, Co Down. The purpose of my meeting with Dr Campbell was to discuss a new groundbreaking treatment for ladies who suffer from urinary incontinence and vaginal laxity. I found the entire meeting very informative from a woman’s stance but also incredibly interesting to hear how this new treatment which is only available in Cosetech in Ireland can in effect change women’s lives dramatically. This is the first of 3 pieces that I’m writing about The Geneveve Treatment At Cosmetech I do hope you find it helpful but also potentially something that you may consider yourself if you are also symptomatic.
Dr Patrick Campbell
Dr Campbell has completed speciality training in Obstetrics and Gynaecology but has also widened his knowledge and expertise by undertaking a two-year training programme in urogynaecology at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals. During his initial training, Dr Campbell was awarded a competitive Academic Clinical Fellowship at Queens University Belfast whilst researching the use of Botox in the treatment of an overactive bladder.
The Geneveve Treatment At Cosmetech
Women who have had children even a problem free birth can suffer from vaginal laxity. It’s a very taboo subject. One that we as women may joke about with friends at times but often learn to live with the symptoms out of embarrassment. I myself have suffered probably since after having my 2nd child. My main issues would be trampolining, sneezing etc when at times I will leak urine (not everytime but occasionally). I always try to remember to do pelvic floor exercises but such is life I often forget, and so the issue remains. Geneveve offers women like me a chance to be somewhat normal. My children are what make this 41-year-old feel like a 20 something-year-old. But I want to be able to enjoy our outdoor time together fully, without the fear of any possible leakage.
The treatment itself is a very quick process undertaken in Cosmetech by Dr Campbell. In fact, it only takes around 45 minutes to complete with no downtime at all. Meaning you can continue with your daily activities straight away. Our vaginal tissues rely upon collagen and elastin to maintain support. Through ageing, this can become lax but also the process of having a child can put added strain on the vaginal tissues which in turn can cause some looseness. The result of this can cause urinary incontinence and loss of full sensation during intercourse.
According to 81% of Obstetrics and Gynaecology practitioners, vaginal laxity often goes un-reported
by their patients, and therefore untreated.
This can have a profound effect on a woman’s sexual
experience, and by extension, her overall health and well-being.
The Geneveve Treatment
The treatment itself involves having a small device inserted vaginally. This is then moved circumferentially whilst delivering heat and cooling pulses. This technique increases collagen production which in turn regenerates the deep tissues with the outcome being a more revitalised area. For those ladies who have issues on the sexual front, the Geneveve is a great way to improve your sex life. The technique and thought process behind the invention is one of enhancing a ladies experience and not one of a cosmetic nature. Dr Campbell will, of course, go into great detail about your medical history at the consultation stage. This treatment is not for all so an initial consultation to discuss options is the best way forward. The technique used peaks at day 90 post procedure and results are still evident after 12 months. The procedure can, of course, be repeated as a top-up procedure in the future if required.
Firstly, only Geneveve uses patented, deep heating and surfacing cooling pulse technology
specifically designed for vaginal tissue. Secondly, Geneveve is a single-session solution for vaginal
laxity with lasting results. Most importantly, Geneveve is not about cosmetic appearance; it is about
how a woman FEELS.
I felt it was really important to address these issues with my readers. Most of you guys are of childbearing age and as its, a subject that we often dismiss I wanted to let you know that your not alone and there are options out there for you should you wish to pursue them. I am also having The Geneveve Treatment At Cosmetech next week and I will, of course, give a very honest review afterwards and a further review at the 3-month point.
