Incontinence therapy - Incontilase®

If you experience involuntary urination while coughing, sneezing, lifting, or even running or walking up stairs, you are likely to suffer from stress-type incontinence.

Stress incontinence usually occurs during menopause or after childbirth, however it can actually occur at any age. The cause of this phenomenon is that the pelvic floor muscles weaken and this results in an altered anatomical condition that causes drops of urination.

Our IncontiLase® treatment provides a modern, painless, quick solution to this problem by stimulating the formation of collagen in the vaginal wall. As a result of the laser treatment, the supporting function of the vagina improves, thus eliminating or significantly reducing urinary loss. Normal urination reoccurs and the patient’s quality of life significantly improves.

Every third woman suffers from some kind of urinary incontinence and lives together with the problem, although stress incontinence can be eliminated or can be significantly improved.

If the condition is complicated with other types of incontinence, then additional medical treatment may be needed.

Intimate laser treatment does not require any special preparation. We provide our patients with outpatient treatment. In our comfortable, modern center, we welcome our patients in a discreet environment without any waiting time.

How does the IntimaLase® work?

The thermal effect of Fotona’s Er:YAG non-ablative laser beam that operates on a 2940 nm wavelength, stimulates collagen organization and production in the vaginal canal tissues. As a result, the vaginal wall shrinks (tightens) and strengthens, supports the bladder base, correcting the altered anatomical position that has caused urinary loss..

The unique benefits of IntimaLase®

  • Safer, faster treatment. By using it, possible complications associated with traditional surgical procedures can be avoided.
  • Does not require special preparation or aftercare.
  • Non-surgical procedure. The patient can resume daily activities immediately after treatment.

Frequently asked questions

Urinary incontinence means loss of bladder control. There are several stages of it. The mildest is when urinary dribbling occurs due to strong abdominal pressure (such as sneezing, coughing). We are talking about a more unpleasant problem if urine is inadvertently released even with less effort (for example, when exercising, climbing stairs). The most severe case of incontinence means the inability to hold urine at rest and accidental urination.

There are several types of urinary disorders:

  • Stress incontinence: Accidental loss of urine due to lifting heavier objects, coughing, sneezing, exercising. In this case, urinary dribbling occurs due to an increase in abdominal pressure. This abdominal pressure can also occur during pregnancy. If the barrier muscle cannot withstand this pressure, urine may drip. Most women first notice it in connection with pregnancy and childbirth, as well as during menopause. Of all the incontinence, this type is the most common.
  • Urgent or urge incontinence: In this case, there is a sudden urge to urinate, which the patient needs to control. This usually fails because the stimulus is so strong that it is too late to act. In this case, the coordination between the stimuli delivered by the brain and the functioning of the bladder is inadequate. The problem often has a nervous system cause, but can also be the result of inflammation.
  • Functional incontinence: The patient is unable to reach the toilet in time due to some reason (such as an inability to move or a condition affecting mental performance).
  • Reflex incontinence: Injury (brain damage or spinal cord injury) causes disruption in the regulation of bladder function, and the loss of voluntary control. It works like for babies who are not yet potty trained.
  • Overflow incontinence: Unintentional urine leakage due to weak muscle contraction or some obstruction in the bladder. The wall of the bladder is unable to contract, unable to hold the amount of fluid that has accumulated in it. The pressure in the bladder causes a constant dribbling of urine that simply overflows.
  • Mixed incontinence: several types of urinary incontinence are present at the same time.

Temporary urinary incontinence is usually caused by eating habits (caffeine, alcohol, low fluid intake) or certain medications. In the case of persistent incontinence, anatomical abnormalities due to an event (pregnancy, cystitis, injury) can usually cause urinary retention problems.

For slight symptoms, lifestyle changes, regular exercise (especially gymnastic exercises in the perineal area), and proper nutrition can help a lot. During medical treatment, the patient is given oral hormone replacement preparations. It is also possible to have surgery. The most advanced procedure available today to eliminate incontinence is laser treatment. This type of healing procedure does not count as surgery, it is a quick and painless treatment that does not involve aftercare.

The thermal action of the 2940 nm wavelength, non-ablative, Erona YAG laser beam stimulates collagen sorting and production in the tissues of the vaginal canal. As a result, the vaginal wall thickens (replenishes) and this strengthens, supports the bladder base, correcting the altered anatomical position that causes urinary loss.

The majority of patients usually begin to experience unpleasant intimate symptoms after childbirth, but in some cases, treatment can be used from the age of 18.

Before treating incontinence, it is definitely worthwhile to find out what incontinence is – with specific questions. This is because there are cases (for example, urinary incontinence due to nerve dysfunction, spine injury, side effects of medication, urge incontinence) for which laser treatment cannot be used. (In this case, other therapies are warranted.)

The literature names cases where treatment (Er: YAG laser) is not recommended. These can be:

  •  Urinary tract infections (UTI)
  • Injuries or bleeding around the tissue to be treated (vaginal vestibule and anterior vaginal wall)
  • One of the following urinary disorders:
    • excessive bladder capacity (<300 cc),
    • residue after discharge> 50 cc,
    • spasmodic bladder,
    • vesicoureteralis reflux (VUR),
    • bladder stones,
    • bladder tumors,
    • urethral stenosis and bladder neck stenosis
  • Abnormal wound formation
  • Infection or inflammation of the treated area
  • Excessive exposure to sunlight (tanned skin)
  • History of photosensitivity disorder or drug treatment with photosensitivity
  • Pregnancy
  • Irradiation of the gonads
  • Diabetes
  • Collagen and connective tissue disorders
  • Wound healing and wound formation disorders
  • Blood clotting disorders
  • Heart or lung disease
  • Vascular problems (including general circulatory disorders)
  • Endocrine disorders
  • Hypertension
  • Abnormal obesity
  • Epilepsy
  • Fever
  • Taking iron supplements or anticoagulant therapy
  • Take a medicine to treat severe acne within 6 months
  • Systemic or oral antifungal therapy within 6 months
  • Use of vasodilators
  • Gold therapy
  • Insulin-dependent diabetes (written consent of the GP is required)
  • Cancer in the area to be treated
  • Autoimmune disorders, e.g. lupus
  • Previous seizures
  • Herpes simplex infection in the treated area
  • Impossibility to display the area to be treated
  • Malignant preoperative histological finding
  • Anatomical observations inconsistent with the diagnosis

It is not allowed as the laser beam would be absorbed into the water content of the blood so that it would not reach the vaginal wall with adequate efficiency.

Tampons can be used 2-3 days after the process.

Yes, it is allowed. The mirror at the end of the laser device covers the coil, so it won’t ruin the process at all.

If you take contraceptive, please consult your doctor. Although no such complaint has been documented or received so far, several contraceptives may cause photosensitivity.

After the intimate laser treatment, it is worth avoiding bathing, swimming pool activities and sauna for 1-2 days.

The date of each treatment, including the next treatment’s date, will be chosen when consulting your doctor. The time between the two treatments may vary from individual to individual, but you should usually wait 2-4 weeks.

The effectiveness of Fotona intimate laser treatments is also proven by clinical research:

  • The vaginal tightening effect of RenovaLase® was assessed as positive by 97% of patients and their orgasmic ability was improved in 58%. On average, the vaginal canal became 17% tighter.
  • Almost 70% of IncontiLase® users are asymptomatic after 120 days. At 120 days post-treatment, 94% of patients reported significant improvement and 68% had complete cessation of urinary incontinence.

Intimate laser treatment, especially the Fotona Smooth Er:YAG laser, is a gentle, fast and painless procedure. However, like all devices and preparations used in medicine, it can have side effects. The literature names the following factors:

  • Scarring (hypertrophic, atrophic)
  • Prolonged wound healing
  • Persisting ulcerated areas
  • Bleeding
  • Mild redness of the skin that may last for a few days.
  • Surface burns, sometimes with blistering.
  • Transient hypo- or hyperpigmentation
  • Mild to moderate discomfort or pain during treatment
  • Bruising
  • Pain
  • Laxity
  • Infection
  • Edema
  • Discoloration
  • Paresthesia
  • Erythema
  • Irregular contour, deformations
  • Partial skin erosion
  • Pulling feeling
  • Hemosiderin discoloration
  • More intensive vaginal discharge
  • Recurrent urinary incontinence

No preparation or aftercare is required. An exception to this is the RenovaLase® (vaginal atrophy) treatment. In case of vaginal atrophy, pre-treatment is required, as it is not possible to absorb Er:YAG when the vagina’s water content is not optional. Therefore, the vaginal moisture has to be increased before treatment. This is done with an applied estrogen formulation with a preparation time of 2-4 weeks depending on the atrophy.

No additional drug or medication shall be taken after the treatment.

An exception to this may be if a mixed type of incontinence treatment is needed, in which case an additional pharmaceutical product may be required to achieve the ideal effect, which we will determine in your personalized therapy.

Intimate laser treatment can be used 6 weeks after delivery at the earliest.

After 2-3 days, any activity can be continued (sex life, thermal water, bathing, etc.). Due to the unique non-ablative nature of the laser we use, the surface of the vagina will not be damaged.

The treatment is quick and painless. It can be done during a lunch break, there is no need to take any day off. Provided that you choose intimate laser treatment, you will not be absent from work, your daily activities and routine will not be interrupted. The treatment is not a surgical procedure, so there is no incision, no anesthesia, no bleeding, no suturing.

Fotona Smooth Er:YAG laser therapy is a patented, non-invasive, hormone-free procedure that eliminates the condition that causes unpleasant symptoms in the intimate areas (incontinence,  vaginal atrophy, vaginal relaxation syndrome, uterine prolapse).

The thermal action of Fotona’s Er:YAG non-ablative laser beam that operates on a 2940 nm wavelength, stimulates collagen organization and production in the vaginal canal tissues. As a result, the vagina’s shrinks (tightens).

Studies show that vaginal atrophy is almost 100% eliminated, vaginal comfort is increased, sex life is improved and it becomes painless. According to a recent study, RenovaLase® therapy was more effective than hormone therapy in treating vaginal atrophy.

The Intimate laser treatment usually involves two, sometimes three sessions with small breaks of 2 to 4 weeks. One process usually takes 15 minutes, during which you will not feel any discomfort or pain. Vaginal discomfort can be felt for a day or two after the procedure, which usually disappears within two days. It is not necessary to interrupt your daily routine after the treatment, and after a few days you will notice the beneficial effects.

It is a totally painless process. In some cases, which happens very rarely, patients may experience minimal discomfort feeling.

No, you don’t have to. You may feel discomfort for 1-2 days after the procedure. Due to the uniquely non-ablative laser we use, the surface of the vagina will not be damaged.

Intimate laser technology is not a surgical procedure. It requires neither preparation nor aftercare. It is very fast and painless. There is no anesthesia, incision, suture removal, nor bleeding. For the body, this is a much less stressful solution. The result is as effective as the surgical procedure’s. Studies show that vaginal dryness is almost 100% eliminated, the vaginal comfort is increased, sex life is improved and becomes painless. According to a recent study, the RenovaLase® therapy was more effective than hormone therapy in treating vaginal atrophy.

Currently, two intimate laser procedures are available in Hungary. One works with a CO2 laser and the other with Fotona Smooth Er:YAG laser technology. The Hírös Intimlézer Center uses Fotona’s patented Smooth technology with an Er:YAG laser.
Comparing the lasers, we can say that both the Er:YAG laser and the CO2 laser are ablative, but the Er:YAG laser absorbs much better in water and therefore does not burn the skin.

What really makes differences when comparing the two laser procedures available in Hungary, is the SMOOTH technology patented by Fotona, which is able to create a non-ablative gynecological laser in a way that is unique in the world. Being non-ablative means that there is no direct effect, i.e. no damage to the mucosa.

Thanks to SMOOTH technology:

  • we reach the temperature required for denaturing collagen (we work painlessly at 62-63 Celsius), but it does not burn,
  • as it is non-ablative, there is no need to fear infection due to the non-sterile nature of the vagina,
  • does not hurt, no anesthesia or preparation is required.
