Treat­ment has key for re­ju­ve­nated life

SKIN Alert Cairns re­cently in­tro­duced In­con­tiLase, the lat­est in laser tech­nol­ogy for the treat­ment of stress uri­nary in­con­ti­nence in women.

Dr David Can­dler from Skin Alert says SUI is a com­mon prob­lem in women that can cause the in­vol­un­tary loss of urine dur­ing cough­ing, sneez­ing, laugh­ing or phys­i­cal ex­er­tion such as jump­ing, run­ning or climb­ing stairs.

“The un­avoid­able leak­age of urine dur­ing phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity is po­ten­tially em­bar­rass­ing and can be dis­rup­tive to your so­cial and sex life,” he says.

“With In­con­tiLase, a new laser treat­ment for mild to mod­er­ate stress uri­nary in­con­ti­nence, women can again have a nor­mal life­style with­out the worry of un­con­trolled urine leak­age.”

Uri­nary in­con­ti­nence can be caused by nat­u­ral child­birth or sim­ply oc­cur as a symp­tom of age­ing.

Tra­di­tional treat­ment op­tions like mus­cu­lar train­ing rely on daily com­pli­ance, some­thing the mod­ern life­style makes dif­fi­cult to achieve.

An­other tra­di­tional treat­ment, surgery, is in­va­sive and ac­cord­ing to Dr Can­dler re­quires hos­pi­tal­i­sa­tion and re­cov­ery time.

There is also the po­ten­tial for com­pli­ca­tions and re­peat surgery, he says. By con­trast, In­con­tiLase is a non- in­va­sive pro­ce­dure that can re­turn nor­mal mus­cu­lar sup­port – and keep you dry.

“In­con­tiLase treat­ments are sur­pris­ingly simple and quick,” Dr Can­dler says.

“No anaes­thetic is re­quired, and gen­er­ally there is very lit­tle dis­com­fort.

“Pa­tients walk in and walk out of the clinic and there are no wounds to heal.”

Vagi­nal pro­lapse is also a com­mon prob­lem for women, with many re­luc­tant to un­dergo surgery or hav­ing recurring prob­lems even if they do.

Due to the vary­ing de­grees of sever­ity, a con­sul­ta­tion is re­quired to as­sess your suit­abil­ity for laser treat­ment.

Sev­eral treat­ments may be needed, but even sig­nif­i­cant cases re­spond well to laser treat­ment.

Vagi­nal tight­en­ing is also pos­si­ble through laser treat­ment with a pro­ce­dure called In­ti­maLase which is sim­i­lar to In­con­tiLase, tar­get­ing the walls of the vagina in­stead of the blad­der.

This can be dis­cussed at your con­sul­ta­tion.

Non-in­va­sive laser treat­ment is a proven way to solve stress uri­nary in­con­ti­nence.
