LASER TREATMENT FOR URINARY INCONTINENCE

The laser is used in the treatment of urinary incontinence of various causes. Laser causes photothermal contraction of the vaginal walls, which allows for strengthening of the pelvic floor muscles. The procedure is almost painless, demonstrates high effectiveness and produce long-lasting effects.
The problem of urinary incontinence affects women of all ages. In young women, it usually results from pregnancy and childbirth, and in more mature ladies it may accompany menopause. Laser treatment of urinary incontinence is a common procedure performed in aesthetic gynaecology. The procedure involves inserting a laser head into the vagina, so that the laser beam impacts the vaginal walls. Thanks to photothermal ablation, collagen fibres shrink and the vaginal walls get strengthened. The procedure takes about 30 minutes and is painless, does not require hospitalisation or long-term recovery. The Patient should avoid sexual intercourse for a month after the procedure and discharge may also occur in that time.

WHAT TREATMENT RESULTS CAN BE ACHIEVED?

Indications for laser treatment include urinary incontinence occurring in various situations – when laughing, sneezing, playing sports or having sexual intercourse. The treatment is also dedicated to those women who experience constant pressure on the bladder or burning during urination. In addition, the laser works well for all women after childbirth, as they need to strengthen the muscles of the pelvis minor. By using the laser to reduce incontinence, we can eliminate this embarrassing problem. This form of therapy is very effective and does not require pharmacotherapy. Over 80% of Patients who have undergone a laser treatment are satisfied with the effects of the procedure, especially that it is performed only once. Intravaginal laser impacts the front wall of the vagina, leading to strengthening of the muscles supporting the urethra and responsible for the tension of its walls. A satisfactory effect of the procedure may appear already after one visit in the clinic. This relates to cases of mild to moderate urinary incontinence. However, in case of advanced urinary incontinence, one procedure may not be enough. If necessary, the procedure can be repeated after 30 days.

As already mentioned, how often the effects last depends on many factors. If after several months the incontinence problem reappears, the procedure may also be repeated. Certainly such a need may arise after the next childbirth. Laser therapy is a much more comfortable and effective method of treating incontinence than sewing in mesh or tapes to support organs. Moreover, laser incontinence treatment brings a number of other benefits: it tightens vaginal walls and in menopausal women it may reduce such disorders as excessive vaginal dryness, painful intercourse or decreased vaginal elasticity.

SAPPHIRE 40 LASER

The Sapphire 40 Laser is used successfully in gynaecology and beyond. It is an ablative laser, so it essentially causes controlled micro-damage in the tissue subjected to the procedure. Micro-damages are generated by photocoagulation. A laser beam falling on the tissue leads to ablation, or tissue coagulation. This is a result of gradual heating of the tissue and the impact of the laser beam on the water present in the tissue. Water undergoes rapid evaporation, which is accompanied by formation of microscopic damage in the tissue. Because these micro-damages are surrounded by normal, intact tissue, skin regeneration processes are activated. These advanced repair processes include, among others, stimulation of collagen fibre synthesis, which translates into tissue structure reconstruction, its strengthening, thickening and elasticity. Such laser action is used primarily in aesthetic medicine, where the laser allows for advanced skin resurfacing, firming and rejuvenation, smoothing out wrinkles, improving facial oval and photo-rejuvenation.
Sapphire 40 laser is also used in aesthetic gynaecology. Such treatments use the ability of Sapphire 40 laser to generate a thermal effect in the deeper layers of the skin. This action heats the tissue, which results in shrinkage of collagen fibres. Apart from the process of collagen reshaping, neo-collagenesis, i.e. formation of new collagen fibres, is initiated. Thus, the laser can be used to tighten and narrow the vagina, reduce vaginal dryness, which is characteristic feature of menopause, reduce stress urinary incontinence, increase elasticity of scars after perineal incision and support the healing process and revitalisation of the labia majora.

PROCEDURE

During the consultation, we discuss the expected effect and chose the best method for the Patient. Before the procedure, a gynaecologist carries out a thorough examination and discusses expected effects.

EFFECT

Laser treatment of urinary incontinence is a highly effective procedure. The first effects appear after about a month and result from strengthening and making vaginal walls more flexible thanks to shortening collagen fibres. In addition, the pelvic floor muscles and fascia surrounding the urethral outlet become strengthened. This means reducing the angle of the urethra and maintaining optimal tension in the muscles surrounding it. This stops uncontrolled urination.
How long the effect lasts is an individual matter. In young women, the effects can last until the next childbirth or for about six months to two years. For menopausal women who take hormone replacement therapy, the effects of laser incontinence treatment may be permanent.

HOW SHOULD I PREPARE?

The procedure does not require much preparation.

It cannot be performed during menstruation or just before it. Valid cytology and vaginal culture results are also required.

RECOVERY

A recovery process is slight. During it, the Patient receives medication. Up to about 2-3 weeks, there is abundant discharge due to regeneration of vaginal mucosa. Intercourse can be resumed after about a month.

CONTRAINDICATIONS

There are not many contraindications, but they must be taken into consideration. Below you will find the most important of them.

Diabetes.

In case of advanced diabetes wound healing is impaired. However, when treated and controlled, diabetes is not a problem. If you have diabetes, please ask your attending physician for a written consent for the aesthetic medicine procedure and present it to us on the day of the procedure.

Active cancer.

Cancer that occurred less than 5 years prior to the procedure.

Chemo- and radiotherapy

​​

Steroids, except asthma medications and inhaled steroids, taken less than one month prior to the scheduled procedure.

​​

Epilepsy.

Pregnancy and breastfeeding. We do not perform procedures in pregnant ladies or nursing mothers, even with the physician’s consent. When it comes to children, one can’t be too careful!

Skin diseases in the planned treatment site.

Fever, viral or bacterial infection on the day of the procedure.
