Stress urinary incontinence is a very uncomfortable condition. It occurs when you urinate involuntarily when exercising, sneezing or coughing. In the beginning, the problem occurs only when exercising, but as the disease progresses, even walking can cause involuntary urination. In Poland, this problem affects several million women of various ages, and one of the innovative methods of its treatment is the Fotona laser.
The treatment procedure for stress urinary incontinence is non-invasive and does not require anaesthesia, nor does it carry the risk of complications typical of surgery. It involves photothermal, non-ablative stress and bladder contraction using the Fotona laser. The laser affects the mucosa of the vaginal vestibule, the outlet of the bladder and the area along the front wall of the vagina. One treatment is usually enough, and the patient can go back to everyday life immediately after the treatment (she must not have sex for a month afterwards, however). This revolutionary method has been used by dozens of doctors all over the world. In Poland it is already possible to undergo this treatment in several clinics. The effect is long-lasting, and the treatment is effective in 90% of mild and 75% of moderate incontinence cases.
The procedure is followed by:
- restore elasticity to the pelvic floor muscles and the upper vaginal wall by improving the urethrovesical angle,
- strengthening of the vaginal and vesical fascia
- stimulation of mucosal collagen fibre multiplication
- improvement of the entire urethral outlet area, the vaginal walls and the intrapelvic fascia.
Indications for treatment with Fotona Intima:
- treatment of stress urinary incontinence,
- vaginal tightening procedure,
- treatment of urogenital syndrome associated with menopause/vaginal atrophy,
- treatment of pelvic organ prolapses.
