IncontiLase Laser Incontinence Treatment
results may vary based on a variety of factors
Used for the Treatment of….
Many women experience a condition called stress urinary incontinence (SUI). SUI occurs when your bladder leaks urine during physical activity or exertion. It may happen when you cough, laugh, jump, sneeze, or exercise. SUI is most commonly cause by vaginal childbirth and hormonal changes due to age. The stretching and increased laxity of the tissues causes the bladder to sag over the anterior wall of the vagina, which can interfere with the proper function of the bladder when it is full.
How IncontiLase Works
IncontiLase is a non-surgical laser treatment for stress urinary incontinence. The treatment is delivered through the vagina, where short laser pulses create photo-thermal stimulation, resulting in tightening of the connective tissue around the vagina wall, urethral orifice, vestibule and anterior bladder wall. The shrinking and tightening of the vaginal and pelvic floor tissues results in greater support to the bladder and urethra, and the return of normal continence function.
The results are both instantaneous and on-going, with continued collagen neogenesis in the weeks beyond treatment. Usually two sessions are recommended to alleviate mild or even moderate stress urinary incontinence. No special pre-op preparation or post-op precautions are necessary. Patients can immediately return to their normal everyday activities. Clinical studies have shown that 94% of patients reported improvement and 68% of all patients claimed to be free of SUI symptoms! There is no need for local anesthesia, and you can come in, get your treatment, and return to your normal daily activities!
