How does IncontiLase work?
The IncontiLase treatment is based on precisely controlled laser-induced thermal effects in the mucosa tissue in the region of the vestibule and urethral orifice, as well as in the area along the anterior vaginal wall. The laser used in IntimaLase treatments is a 2940 nm Er:YAG, with built-in proprietary technology solutions that enable delivery of specially composed laser energy packages to the vaginal mucosa tissue and to collagen-rich endopelvic fascia. The resulting collagen neogenesis and remodeling leads to the shrinking and tightening of irradiated tissues, and the return of normal continence function.
Unique advantages of IntcontiLase
For a large majority of patients, typically two sessions are sufficient to alleviate mild or even moderate stress urinary incontinence. If needed, the treatment may be repeated after one month. No special pre-op preparations or post-op precautions are necessary. Patients may immediately return to their normal everyday activities. The procedure is incisionless and virtually painless, with no ablation, cutting, bleeding, or sutures. Recovery is extremely quick without need for the use of analgesics or antibiotics.
