A letter from Dr. Tess:
“I usually talk to you about beauty, but today, I'd like to talk to you about something
more serious, embarrassing, depressing, and life changing that affected my cousin
when she visited me from Canada...urinary incontinence.
Studies show that starting from the age of 18 years old, 50%-75% of women suffer
from some type of urinary incontinence. The 2 main causes of this embarassing
problem are childbirth and menopause. My cousin was only 44 years old but she
kept going to the bathroom at least every 30 minutes and she didn't want to go
anywhere even though she was on vacation. I knew that something was wrong.
She finally told me that a couple of years after she had her second child via normal
vaginal delivery, she started having problems controlling her bladder. She would
always bring extra underwear because she was afraid that she would wet herself.
What's worse is that she didn't want to tell anyone because she was so
embarassed and thought that there was no treatment for it. She did not even
realize this is not normal. She thought this was just part of normal aging. Luckily,
she was visiting our San Diego clinic on the day she told me about her urinary
problem and I told her she should try the O Shot.
She was a little nervous about the procedure but I told her that it doesn't really hurt
and it is very safe because it uses her own platelet rich plasma to regenerate
tissues to help rebuild the area so she can have better control of her urine. There
is no downside to doing the procedure but there are lots of potential benefits that I
have seen with my O Shot patients. She finally agreed and I performed the O shot
on her that same day. She was very surprised at how quick and comfortable the
procedure was. We still were able to go shopping after her treatment. But the best
part of the story was that a just couple of days after performing the O Shot, she
was much better. She was able to control her urine better and we even drove to
my Beverly Hills clinic, which was over 2 hour drive from San Diego, without her
having to go to the bathroom. She could not believe how much better she was and
how much more relaxed she felt not having to constantly think about going to the
Before she went back home to Canada, she gave me a big hug and said, "I didn't
want to tell you how depressed and embarassed I was because of this problem but
I'm so happy that I told you. Thank you so much Tess, you have changed my life
and made me so happy!"
My hope is that I can help other women like my cousin who are silently suffering. I
want to help women from being feeling depressed and embarrased about urinary
incontinence and I want everyone to know that there is hope. In fact, since my
cousin's visit, I have introduced game changing technologies and treatments for
incontinence and women's intimate health. VConfidence and
VTimeMachineProcedure combines the OShot with the CO2RE Intima laser
treatment to optimize the results for patients.
As one of the few female doctors to offer this procedure, please let me have the
opportunity to help you. Although the O Shot is a safe treatment, you should only
trust an expert to perform this procedure. At MBeauty, I personally perform the O
Shot, VConfidence and VTimeMachineProcedure so you can be confident that
your procedure will be done properly and safely. Please contact us at one of our
MBeauty clinics to discuss your options and other benefits that will improve your
quality of life and happiness. I hope to see you soon.”
