What Can You Do About Urinary Incontinence?
Who Can We Help?
Our treatments help women suffering from urinary incontinence due to declining oestrogen levels or a break down in the connective tissues supporting the urethra. This is very common in women nearing or post menopause (when oestrogen levels naturally decline) and for women post child-birth, due to the pressure and stretching exerted on tissues supporting the urethra and bladder. However, any woman experiencing urinary incontinence may benefit.
It is important to rule out other potential causes so a doctor consultation is always performed before a treatment plan is recommended.
Incontinence Treatment Options
- The clinically proven MonaLisa Touch laser, a quick and comfortable, walk in/walk out procedure that can successfully treat a range of vulvo-vaginal and urinary symptoms, especially for peri and post menopausal women.
- Urethral connective tissue can also be regenerated to a more healthy, youthful state using highly concentrated Platelet Rich Plasma injection therapy.
Incontinence Treatment Results
A series of MonaLisa Touch laser treatments enhances the tone and elasticity in the front wall of the vagina providing support to the detrusor muscle and relieving pressure on the urethra. This has been shown to improve bladder and urethra control, thereby reducing both urge and stress urinary incontinence symptoms.
The results of MonaLisa Touch can last for up to 15 months and many patients find that a single refresher session, every 12 months, will extend the beneficial results.
PRP regenerative therapy can be stand alone or an add-on to enhance the results of MonaLisa Touch. PRP triggers stem cells to regenerate healthy blood vessels, nerves, muscles and collagen after about 30 days. The result is stronger connective tissue to support the urethra and bladder. Annual treatments are recommended.
The medical team and support staff at Academy Laser Clinics have been helping patients with intimate and lifestyle concerns for years. We understand that privacy and discretion are paramount, so please Contact Us for a confidential consultation with one of our doctors or registered nurses today.
If your symptoms are suitable for MonaLisa Touch and/or PRP Therapy, you may immediately proceed with first treatment on the day of consultation.
