Stress urinary incontinence, novel non-invasive laser treatment.

Stress urinary incontinence is a problem that affects many women of all ages and strongly impacts all aspects of their lives.

Clinical picture

Clinically, it presents as sudden urine leakage upon exertion or when coughing, sneezing, laughing, or exercising.

Stress urinary incontinence is seen more frequently in women who have had vaginal deliveries.

Vaginal delivery can cause a weakening of the pelvic floor muscles. The bladder and urethra are supported by these muscles.

When any of these muscle groups is weakened, urine can pass from the bladder to the urethra and from it to the outside with minimal pressure on the bladder.

The Carbon Dioxide Laser tightens the pelvic walls improving stress urinary incontinence, rejuvenates the genital area, improving elasticity and vaginal discharge, improves or eliminates dyspareunia.

It is a procedure, fast, painless, effective and without adverse effects.

A prerequisite for this treatment is consultation with the primary gynecologist so that he can perform a gynecological check-up and a pap smear study.

Novel Carbon Dioxide Laser Treatment:

Dr. Ricardo Hoogstra has carried out treatments with Carbon Dioxide Laser since 1995, he was one of the pioneers in the use of this technology for Facial Rejuvenation and to treat a large number of skin diseases.

For some years now, he has been using a special type of carbon dioxide laser to treat patients suffering from dyspareunia, patients with urinary incontinence and patients with sexual dissatisfaction due to dilation of the vaginal canal.

The light energy of the laser produces a stimulation of the collagen. Neocholagenogenesis increases the tone of the perineum, the vaginal canal and rejuvenates the vaginal mucosa.

This treatment is well tolerated, outpatient and the results are satisfactory.
It is recommended to carry out three sessions with 30-day intervals between one and the other.

The end result is a rejuvenation of the vaginal mucosa, a tightening effect on the vagina and perineum.

After treatment, patients report disappearance or attenuation of incontinence, improvement or disappearance of dyspareunia and greater satisfaction with sexual intercourse.

Once the 3 sessions are over, we recommend doing a reinforcement session the following year. The results obtained last for years.

As a conclusion we can say that this is a painless, effective, outpatient treatment and with which until now we have not verified undesired effects.
