Urinary incontinence or involuntary urinary leakage is an embarrassing condition. Imagine yourself chit-chatting with your friends in a party. In an outburst of laughter, you passed urine in the underpants. Not only will there be smell but also wetness, both of which cause social embarrassment and discomfort. You may end up refraining yourself from social activities out of fear for this incident repeating itself.
Urinary incontinence is caused by gradual loss of support of the urinary sphincter, the muscles that stop the flow of urine. Weakening of the supporting structures occurs when due to natural aging or secondary to childbirth, especially in multiparous women.
This condition can be treated. Using IntimaLase™ , a non-invasive Er:YAG laser therapy, mild and moderate urinary incontinence is treated by applying photo-thermal stimulation to stimulate collagen synthesis and tightening of posterior bladder wall and subsequently greater support to the bladder.
This procedure is performed as an outpatient basis without the need for anaesthesia. Usually a few sessions is required before effective bladder control returns. Best of all, this treatment does not inflict pain to the treated area and patients can immediately return to their normal everyday activities after treatment.
