Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) is a common problem in women that causes involuntary loss of urine during coughing, sneezing, laughing or physical exertion such as running or climbing stairs. SUI can have a dramatic impact on one’s life!
SUI can be caused by the weakening of the urethral closure mechanism, which is the result of changes in the pelvic floor region. The main contributing factors are vaginal childbirth, obesity and aging.

How does it work?
- The laser treatment that has a photo thermal heating effect on collagen in both the vaginal walls and the urethra which causes restructuring and re growth of the collagen. The result is thickening and tightening of the vaginal walls and urethra to help reduce urine loss.
What can I expect during the treatment?
- The non-surgical treatment takes approximately 15 minutes and can be done in a doctor’s office. A special attachment, similar to a speculum as used during a pap test, is inserted into the vagina, during which the entire vaginal region is treated with short laser pulses. Some women may feel a little heat during the treatment but many say the feeling is manageable.
What can I expect post treatment?
- You can leave immediately after the treatment and continue your daily routine. Sexual intercourse is not recommended for 1 week after the procedure.
