Have You Tried the New Non-Surgical Laser Solution for Treating Stress Urinary Incontinence?
Approximately 1 in 5 women over the age of 40 suffer from stress urinary incontinence (SUI), which can have a tremendous impact on their day-to-day life
If you suffer from SUI, also referred to as involuntary urination, you are likely searching for a solution. Although this condition is very common, particularly among women, it can be a source of great embarrassment and stress, as it is often triggered by everyday activities like exercise, laughing, sneezing, and coughing. Luckily, there is a new, extremely efficient treatment option. Dr. Torgerson is proud to offer IncontiLase™, a safe, non-surgical gynaecology treatment, which can effectively treat SUI.
What is Incontilase™?
Incontilase™ is an innovative and minimally invasive laser treatment option designed to treat mild to moderate SUI. This non-surgical laser solution can be completed in as little as 15 to 20 minutes and requires no incisions, stitches, or downtime. As such, it is extremely safe and effective.
How does the procedure work?
IncontiLase™ uses the Fotona 2940 nm Er:YAG’s Smooth Mode technology to thermally affect the vaginal tissue, encouraging the development of new collagen fibres. A small,carefully designed vaginal laser piece is inserted into the vagina to target both the area around the urethra and the anterior vaginal wall. In doing so, it stimulates collagen production, thereby thickening and tightening the urethra and vaginal wall. As a result, new tissue naturally develops, restoring support to the bladder.
What are the results of this procedure?
This procedure shrinks and tightens the vaginal mucosa tissue, resulting in greater support and control of the bladder. When urinary continence is regained, patients also get back their confidence because they no longer have to worry about embarrassment from involuntary urination.
Although this is a new treatment option, clinical studies reveal that 120 days after IncontiLase™ treatment, 94% of patients still reported an improvement of symptoms and 68% were symptom-free. In addition, 70% of patients claimed to be dry after just 120 days.
Is it painful?
Although each patient has their own tolerance for pain, the Incontilase™ is typically very well tolerated, as most women describe it as virtually painless. However, some patients experience mild discomfort or an itching sensation in the vaginal area during the treatment.
Unlike more invasive treatment options, this laser solution does not require incisions, bleeding, or sutures, so the recovery time is minimal and does not necessitate pain medication or antibiotics. You can return to most regular activities right away, and this procedure is quick, so fitting it into your busy day won’t be a problem.
How many treatments are required?
In many cases, patients see impressive results after only one treatment. However, some women require 2 sessions to reduce mild to moderate SUI.
Incontilase™ is an effective gynaecology treatment for patients seeking an alternative to more invasive surgical options for stress urinary incontinence.
