What is IncontiLase™?
IncontiLase™ is a minimally invasive laser treatment for mild and moderate stress and mixed urinary incontinence (SUI).
What is Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI)?
Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) is a common problem in women that causes the involuntary loss of urine during coughing, sneezing, laughing, or physical exertion such as running or climbing stairs.
What are the causes of SUI?
The cause for this involuntary loss of urine is urethral excessive mobility and the weakening of the urethral closure mechanism. The main contributing factors are vaginal childbirth, obesity and ageing.
How does IncontiLase™ work?
Fotona’s 2940 nm Er:YAG, non-ablative laser with proprietary “SMOOTH-mode” technology thermally affects the vaginal tissue , stimulating collagen remodelling and the synthesis of new collagen fibres in the region of anterior vaginal wall as well as the vestibule and urethral orifice.
The result of collagen neogenesis is the shrinking and tightening of vaginal mucosa tissue and collagen-rich endopelvic fascia, providing greater support to the bladder and the return of normal continence function.
What are the unique advantages of IncontiLase™?
- IncontiLase™ is a minimally invasive, incisionless and virtually painless procedure. No cutting, no bleeding or sutures, therefore recovery is exceptionally quick
- IncontiLase™ requires no anaesthesia, antibiotics or pain relief
- IncontiLase™ is a safe, quick, walk-in/walk-out procedure with little to no downtime
Results from Clinical Studies confirm that IncontiLase™ is an effective, safe and comfortable treatment for symptom relief in patients with mild or moderate SUI.
70% patients dry 120 days post treatment
94% of patients reported SUI improved significantly
68% of patients claimed to be free of all SUI symptoms
Improvement of SUI in all measured parameters
