Laser treatment for stress urinary incontinence

Treatment of mild and moderate SUI

IncontiLase® is a patent-pending, non-invasive Er:YAG laser therapy for the treatment of mild and moderate stress urinary incontinence. The treatment is based on non-ablative photothermal stimulation of collagen neogenesis, the shrinking and tightening of vaginal mucosa tissue and collagen-rich endopelvic fascia, which subsequently gives greater support to the bladder.

The indications for IncontiLase therapy are mild and moderate stress and mixed-urinary incontinence (SUI). Preliminary clinical studies show it’s an efficient, safe and easy-to-perform procedure.

How it works

Fotona’s 2940 nm Er:YAG non-ablative laser thermally affects the vaginal tissue, stimulating collagen remodeling and the synthesis of new collagen fibres in the vestibule and urethral orifice, and the area along the anterior vaginal wall.

The final result is the shrinking and tightening of vaginal mucosa tissue and collagen-rich endopelvic fascia, and subsequently greater support to the bladder and the return of normal continence function.

Our most advanced system for Stress Urinary Incontinence

The Fotona Smooth XS is a multi treatment, easy-to-use laser system for all gynecology needs. The system features Er:YAG laser technology; ideal for the treatment of stress urinary incontinence (IncontiLase), vaginal relaxation syndrome (IntimaLase) genitourinary syndrome of menopause (RenovaLase), prolapse (ProlapLase) as well as lesions of the uterine neck and vagina, HPV lesions, pigmentations and neoplasias.

Due to its unique disinfecting capability, the Smooth™ XS also promotes faster healing of infected tissue and minimal downtime.
