Resolve Your Leaky Bladder

Take Back Control of Your Bladder

Urinary Incontinence impacts 1 in 5 Australians. By the age of 50, with more than 1 in 2 ladies are affected - yet nearly 70% do not seek treatment for it.

Well there is an alternative with Laser Incontinence Treatment.

Geniale offers a non-surgical treatment for incontinence with laser, as a walk-in walk-out procedure. The clinic’s medical-grade precision lasers assist in treating several types of incontinence.

Unlike traditional invasive surgeries, these lasers do not involve injections, cutting, incisions, bleeding or sutures and generally there is no need for painkillers or antibiotics.

The upside is that there is no medication involved or a long recovery, with most people up and walking within an hour or two of the procedure.

How effective is Laser Therapy for Incontinence?

A growing groundswell of medical studies shows that laser may be a viable solution for mild to moderate urinary female incontinence.

A  2020 study in the International Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology* which looked at 31 studies on 1530 women, found that “all studies on vaginal and or urethral laser application for pelvic organ prolapse and urinary incontinence reported improvement.”

It also found that no major adverse events were reported, with mild pain and burning sensation the most commonly prescribed adverse events.

Another smaller study reported in 2019 BioMed Research International* confirmed that “vaginal laser is an effective treatment for women with mild to moderate urinary incontinence with no severe or permanent side effects during treatment.”

However as laser therapy is still considerably new, evidence is weaker than established surgical procedures, and a systemic review in the Obstetrics and Gynaecology International Journal*  found that more research is required to further apply these technologies in clinical daily routine.

However, it did conclude that “laser therapy seems to be a promising alternative approach to urinary incontinence in women. It seems effective in the short term, well-tolerated, with few, rare and transient side effects.”

For severe incontinence however, surgery remains the first choice.

The benefits include:

  • Non-invasive: No surgery required, reducing risks and recovery time.
  • Effective Symptom Relief: Significant improvement in bladder control and reduction in leakage.
  • Minimal Discomfort and Quick Procedure: Typically painless and takes less than 30 minutes per session.
  • Low Risk of Complications: Safer alternative to surgical treatments with fewer side effects.
  • No Downtime: Patients can resume normal activities immediately after treatment.
  • Long-lasting Results: Durable improvements, decreasing the need for repeated treatments or ongoing medication.

Symptoms of Incontinence?

The main symptom of incontinence is a leakage of urine. Incontinence is generally divided into four types: stress, urge, overflow, and mixed type. Depending on the type of incontinence you have, you might experience leakage for a wide variety of reasons.

Stress incontinence

  • Stress incontinence is triggered by certain types of physical activity.
  • This muscle weakness means you are more likely to lose control of your bladder while you are exercising, coughing, jumping, laughing, or doing any activities that put stress on the pelvic floor muscles
  • In this type of incontinence, your pelvic floor muscles are weak and no longer support your pelvic organs as they should.

Urge incontinence

  • This type of incontinence is characterized by an intense need to urinate right away.
  • The loss of urine with a strong desire to urinate happens too suddenly for you to make it to a toilet.

Overactive bladder causes a frequent and sudden urge to urinate that you may always feel a strong urge to urinate all day, even waking up at midnight to urinate.

  • The causes can include weak muscles, nerve damage, use of medications, alcohol or caffeine, infection, and being overweight

Overflow incontinence

  • With this type of incontinence, you may experience constant dribbling of urine over time instead of one big gush of urine.
  • This inability to control urination occurs when you are unable to empty your bladder.
  • This type of incontinence is more common in people with chronic conditions like multiple sclerosis (MS), stroke, or diabetes.
  • This may also occur in men with a large prostate that stops the flow of urine out of the bladder.

Mixed incontinence

  • Mixed incontinence is a combination of types that you may experience more than one type of urinary incontinence. The combination of stress incontinence and urge incontinence is the most common one.
  • Identifying what triggers mixed incontinence is usually the best way to manage the condition.
