Did you know that up to 50% of adult women experience urinary incontinence i.e., the involuntary leakage of urine?
Did you also know that up to 45% of postmenopausal women report having painful intercourse? The RejuvaDERM IncontiLase laser uses a safe and minimally invasive technology designed to treat stress urinary incontinence. Stress urinary incontinence is the involuntary urination when the abdominal muscles are tensed while coughing, sneezing, laughing, or exercising. This is caused by a loss of collagen, weakening of the pelvic floor muscles, as well as sagging of the vaginal walls. This can be a result childbirth or hormonal changes during menopause.
At RejuvaDERM we offer this revolutionary laser treatment as part of our tailored treatment that results in the tightening of vaginal tissues and overall improved control over physiological functions. The science behind the results: Fotona’s 2940 nm Er:YAG non-ablative laser with proprietary “Smooth-mode”technology thermally affects the vaginal tissue, stimulating collagen remodeling and the synthesis of new collagen fibers in the region of the vestibule and urethral orifice, as well as in the area along the anterior vaginal wall. Scientific results from clinical studies show excellent improvement for mild and moderate stress urinary incontinence (SUI). The results showed:
- Almost 70% of patients are dry after 120 days.
- 120 days after IncontiLase treatment 94% of patients reported improvement and 68% of all patients claimed to be free of SUI symptoms.
- Improvement of SUI in all measured parameters.
- No adverse events were noted in any of the studies.
The RejuvaDERM Fotona IncontiLase and IntimaLase treatments are the most effective gynecologic laser while also being incisionless and virtually painless, with no ablation, cutting, bleeding, or sutures. Recovery is extremely quick without need for the use of analgesics or antibiotics.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The RejuvaDERM IncontiLase treatment uses an Er:YAG laser that provides energy delivery to the vaginal mucosa and the collagen-rich pelvic tissue. The laser’s heat initiates collagen remodeling and new collagen formation leading to contraction, tightening, and firming of the tissues and restoration of normal urinary function.
HOW LONG DOES THE PROCEDURE TAKE?
The entire procedure lasts from 15 to 30 minutes. To achieve the desired effect, it is often recommended to undergo a series of 3 procedures performed 6-8 weeks apart.
DOES IT HURT?
The RejuvaDERM IncontiLase procedure is a relatively painless and minimally invasive procedure. Numbing cream is used only at the entrance of the vagina. Most patients report a feeling of warmth, while some patients report slight discomfort during the procedure.
WHAT IS THE RECOVERY TIME?
No recovery time is needed! Clients can return to their daily activities right after the procedure. For several days after the procedure, the use of sanitary pads or liners may be needed due to minimal vaginal discharge. We also recommend abstaining from sexual intercourse for 1-2 weeks after the procedure.
IS IT SAFE?
Yes! The procedure is approved by both the FDA and Health Canada. It is very safe if performed by a trained professional.
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
The effect of the RejuvaDERM IncontiLase treatment is very long-lasting. In most patients, it lasts up to 24 months! After that period, a slight weakening of the effect may be noticed. In women of childbearing age, the effect is more durable and can last for many years, while in postmenopausal women, the effectiveness of the procedure depends on additional support with Kegel exercises and working with a pelvic floor physiotherapist.
