Incontilase (Stress Urinary Incontinence)

Do you avoid doing things you love like running and cycling because you are worried about incontinence?

Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) is when a small amount of urine escapes when the body performs certain physical activities like sneezing, jumping or running. It has an immense impact on social lives and negatively affects millions of women. It is the most common type of incontinence affecting up to 17% of women under the age of 60.

The most common causes are pregnancy and childbirth, but there are many other factors that may put someone at risk for experiencing it, like hormones, aging muscle tone, hysterectomy, obesity, consistent heavy lifting and chronic coughing. 

Fotona has developed a new solution to treat Incontinence without medication or surgery:

> No anesthesia

> No surgery

> No recovery time

> No pain

The treatment also boasts a high success rate and rate of client satisfaction:

> 68% of patients report COMPLETE recovery from symptoms

> 94% report a significant improvement

> 95% of women report a moderate to high level of vaginal tightening

How Do Laser Gynecology TREATMENTS Work?

Incontilase uses the Fotona’s Erbium:Yag laser to create thermal tension and shrinkage of the tissue of the bladder walls (urethral and anterior bladder walls). It heats the tissue and causes the collagen and elastin to contract, while promoting the body’s immune response to heal, remodel and repair the tissue to a stronger, more elastic state. A series of 2 treatments, approximately 30 days apart are required.

In many cases, results are noticeable soon after the first treatment. The treatment takes approx. 45 minutes to complete and involves very minimal discomfort. The entire appointment will be less than 60 minutes and you can return to your normal activities immediately afterward. Side effects may include slight swelling and soreness.

WHAT ARE THE OTHER TREATMENT OPTIONS?

TVT Sling surgery (Tension-free vaginal tape) involves the typical risks associated with general anesthesia, 1-2 nights in hospital, approx. 6 weeks of recovery time and the need for pain medications. 

Physiotherapy and pelvic floor exercises for muscle strengthening are typically only mildly to moderately effective and require consistency and ongoing therapy.

Absorbent pads and bladder support tampons are inconvenient, uncomfortable and undesirable for most women.

Who Performs The Treatments?

All Laser Gynecology treatments are performed by a Registered Nurse with extensive Obstetrics & Gynecology experience.

How Long Do Results Last?

Results are dependent on many factors such as age, hormone balances, health and lifestyle. As the body continues to age, the collagen and elastin may continue to weaken and touch up treatments may be required, potentially 1-2 times per every 1-2 years.
