After childbirth, many women experience stress urinary incontinence, (SUI) which is a medical condition characterized by unintentional leakage of urine during moments of physical strain such as sneezing, coughing and exercise. Often women learn to be on guard for this embarrassing problem and may wear sanitary napkins on a regular basis in case of leaks. This problem is often mistaken for urge incontinence, which is the loss of urinary control caused by bladder contraction and associated with a sense of urgency. Stress urinary incontinence is more common for women than men due to changes in the supporting structure around the bladder after pregnancy.
This type of laser treatment is quick and simple, with no requirement of anesthesia. It involves a simple walk-in and out appointment at our comfortable clinic, with no surgical incisions or downtime involved. During the procedure, a small, speculum-like device is inserted into the vagina to deliver short pulses of energy. The result is collagen restructuring and growth, which ultimately leads to the thickening, strengthening and tightening of the vaginal muscles. Due to its simplicity, there are no special pre-operative or post-operative measures needed.The IncontiLase treatment strategy involves two sessions that are four-weeks apart, followed by a check-up six-months after. Each treatment session lasts approximately 20 minutes. The treatment is well-tolerated by our patients and is virtually painless, although a mild heating and itching sensation can sometimes be felt during the procedure. No need to worry, our medical experts will work with you to ensure that you are comfortable during the process. The results vary from patient to patient, but can usually be fully appreciated after four-months. If you have questions or would like to know more about how IncontiLase can help your stress urinary incontinence, our knowledgeable team at Philosophy of Beauty are happy to offer a private consultation and talk about how we can help you get your confidence back.
