Urinary Incontinence in Women

Do you believe that urinary incontinence is normal to the ageing process? Do you think that you must practice Kegel exercises multiple times daily? Has your doctor told you that you should take prescription drugs or undergo surgery to manage your condition?

You are not alone. Millions of women experience the embarrassing symptoms of urinary incontinence in their life time.

There are two primary types of incontinence:

Stress incontinence occurs when pelvic floor muscles weaken. Common to both young and old women this type of incontinence can be triggered by exercise, walking, stretching, bending, laughing, coughing, sneezing, or lifting.

Urge incontinence occurs due to overactivity of the detrusor muscle. The primary symptom of urge incontinence is a sudden, overwhelming urge to urinate. Frequent urination and nighttime urination often occur with this type of urinary incontinence. The leading causes are diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and neurological conditions like stroke, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, or spinal cord damage. Infections or inflammation can also irritate the bladder and damage nerves. Additionally, prescription drugs, caffeine, alcohol can contribute to urge incontinence.

Up until now, doctors have recommended lifestyle changes such as weight loss, caffeine reduction, and Kegel exercises, in addition to biofeedback, medications and surgery to control incontinence. However, innovative research has provided a faster, safer, more convenient, and non-invasive method for treating urinary incontinence.

Dr. Bonnie Vulich, founder of Refine Medical Spa, Chicago’s premier alternative to plastic surgery, now offers Votiva Vaginal Rejuventation, a comfortable procedure that reduces symptoms of urinary incontinence, and consists of three twenty to thirty minute sessions, with no downtime. Patients have reported improvement in symptoms of incontinence after one session.

For a demonstration of this procedure, please watch the video.

Dr Vulich would be happy to meet with you for a complimentary consultation and answer any further questions you may have.

Feel Vibrant At Any Age

At Refine Medical Spa our philosophy is that a person can and should feel vibrant at any age. Our goal is to make our clients look natural and refreshed and feel positive about their appearance.

Our founder, Doctor Bonnie Vulich, has had a long standing interest in anti-ageing medicine. In addition to her degree from The Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine, she has completed a fellowship at The American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine, focusing on innovative cutting-edge science, research, and treatment modalities which are designed to prolong and enhance the human life span.

We don’t believe that attractiveness is confined to a certain age or ethnic group, but should be recognized in all people. In conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise, our services are geared towards creating a youthful appearance, which would enhance our clients’ unique lifestyles.

In the United States, baby boomers, a population of seventy million plus, are now seniors. Many are still in the workforce and find it necessary to present a fresh look in addition to their credentials to remain competitive.

The so- called Silent Generation, those born between 1925 and 1945, are currently twenty million strong. With innovations in medicine they, too, enjoy longer lifespans.  We have clients in their seventies and eighties who still feel youthful and lead active lives. At Refine Medical Spa, we understand you are just as deserving of beauty enhancing treatments.

Whatever your age, we welcome the opportunity to tailor a specific treatment to address your concerns and help you meet your goals, because an attractive appearance is not the exclusive province of the young.

Body Sculpting

You exercise. You eat healthy foods. But you still have pockets of stubborn fat or unsightly cellulite no matter what you do.

In the age of social media where so many of our life events and celebrations are constantly being scrutinized and documented by others, we can become self -conscious about our appearance to an inhibiting degree.

Sometimes, because of our  embarrassment we limit our activities and even the way we respond to our love lives.

With modern innovations in body sculpting, such as fat freezing and various laser based therapies, we no longer have to suffer that which we can’t change through our own efforts.  Neither do we need to subject ourselves to expensive and potentially dangerous surgical solutions since non-surgical therapies are continually being improved to broaden and enhance their range of effectiveness.

We welcome you to come in for a complimentary consultation with Doctor Bonnie Vulich, who will address your concerns in a non-judgmental and receptive environment. Doctor Vulich will happily explain the range of options and possible combinations of therapies which will yield the most desirable non- surgical alternatives to combat your problem areas.


Gone are the days when wealthy women would disappear to their exclusive addresses for weeks to recover from expensive facial surgeries.

Scientists have since discovered that pulling skin tighter is not the ideal solution for the actual culprit, which is the loss of volume in underlying facial structures, such as soft tissue, fat, and bone.

Today’s cutting edge technologies offer multiple and complimentary solutions to prevent ageing and correct problems when they do occur.

  • Sunscreen prevents skin damage from occurring by blocking the sun’s damaging rays. Creams, serums, and lotions moisturize and hydrate the skin, while retinols can improve its surface appearance.
  • Facials remove skin impurities and further hydrate the skin, while peels cause the upper layer of the dermis to flake off, leaving new fresh skin exposed, thus minimizing the appearance of lines, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation.
  • Neurotoxins such as Botox® immobilize the muscles in the forehead, smoothing creases along with the furrows between the brows.
  • Dermal Fillers are successful in replacing lost volume in the cheeks, naso-labial folds ( smile lines), and marionette lines, that is, the lines extending from the mouth down to the chin.
  • Laser treatments resurface the skin, minimizing sun damage and wrinkles, and stimulate the growth of collagen, producing a smoother more youthful appearance.
  • Additionally, Kybella® and Coolsculpt Mini® are used to destroy fat cells at the jaw line, resulting in a sculpted contour.
  • Tooth whitening, along with dental care, which minimizes tooth loss and preserves underlying bone structure, aids in presenting a younger look.

In conjunction with a proper diet, supplementation, and not smoking, these therapies can work wonders to maintain a youthful and refreshed appearance.

At Refine Medical Spa, Chicago’s alternative to plastic surgery, Doctor Bonnie Vulich will explain the most effective treatments to achieve your desired results.
