IncontiLase™ Intra is the latest and unique treatment method of the Fotona company. This treatment is used in the cases of those patients with whom the cause of urinary incontinence are the relaxed urethra and the internal urethral sphincter that has lost its tonicity. In this case, the urinary incontinence has a leaking character; a few millilitres of urine are passed when the patient lifts things, sits up or strains himself/herself. Its cause is mainly the weakness of the connective tissues due to old age and the lack of the oestrogen hormone. The so-called hyperactive bladder syndrome is frequently associated with this condition. In this case, the patient wakes up several times a night to urinate, as well as the urinary urge occurs suddenly and irrepressibly.
During the IncontiLase™ Intra treatment, a specifically formed Er:YAG laser head having a thickness of about 2 mm is inserted into the urethra. Thus the remodelling of the fibres of the connective tissue and the regaining of their flexibility can be achieved through these treatments. Afterwards, the increased urethral pressure can resist the pressure exerted by the urine coming from the bladder. This is a condition to the controllability of urination. The course of the treatment can be seen in the below animated video.
The vaginal pressure conditions are measured beforehand with the so-called perineometer under normal circumstances, then during the intentional contraction of the vaginal musculature. (Peritron) The pre- and post-treatment status can be objectively measured with this device. One treatment session takes 15-20 minutes.
It is incisionless, painless, with no bleeding or sutures. An intermission of 2-4 weeks is recommended between two treatments. It requires no special preparations or aftercare. After the treatment, the patient can immediately return to his/her normal daily activity. It is not recommended to take a sitting bath for 1 or 2 days after the treatment, as well as to avoid sex life for 7 days. The animated presentation of the procedure can be seen in the following video.
