Urinary incontinence can be an embarrassing situation for many women. Whether they experience mild leakage or more moderate stress incontinence, there are solutions to help women gain their self-confidence back. A non-invasive treatment such as Incontilase can make a difference!
What is Incontilase?
Incontilase is a specialized laser therapy that can be used for the treatment of mild to moderate stress urinary incontinence. This device uses a non-ablative laser that stimulates the body’s natural production of collage in the vaginal canal. It helps shrink and tighten the soft tissues of the vaginal canal, allowing for better support of the bladder to reduce or even eliminate urinary incontinence concerns.
What are the benefits of Incontilase?
- Comfortable and pain-free
- No cutting
- No bleeding
- No stitches
- Minimal recovery
Studies continue to show that Incontilase is an effective and safe treatment for stress urinary incontinence, and studies showed that after 120 days following treatment, 70% of patients were dry. 94% of patients reported improvement in their symptoms, with 68% experiencing full treatment results. These amazing statistics show the benefits of Incontilase as a non-surgical approach to urinary concerns.
Who is a candidate for Incontilase?
Most women who are dealing with mild to moderate stress urinary incontinence may be considered appropriate candidates for treatment. These individuals are those who are dealing with bladder leakage or dribbling when laughing, sneezing, or coughing.
What should I expect after treatment?
There is essentially minimal recovery time needed following treatment sessions. Patients can immediately return to their normal activities, though sexual activity should be held off until one-week post-treatment. Any post-treatment concerns should be discussed with the doctor. While treatment is not permanent, it can provide long-lasting improvement when patients continue to seek routine Incontilase treatments spread out over several months. In most cases, patients experience results after two to three treatments and can maintain results with treatments once or twice a year.
