IncontiLase®

Stress Urinary Incontinence
What is IncontiLase®?

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

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

How does IncontiLase® work?

Fotona’s 2940 nm Er:YAG non-ablative laser with proprietary “Smooth-mode” technology thermally affects the vaginal tissue, stimulating collagen remodeling and the synthesis of new collagen fibers in the region of the vestibule and urethral orifice, as well as in the area along the anterior vaginal wall.The final result of collagen neogenesis 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.

Unique Advantages

For a large majority of patients , a single session was sufficient to alleviate mild or even moderate stress urinary incontinence. If needed, the treatment was repeated after one month. No special pre-op preparations or post- op precautions were necessary. Patients could immediately return to their normal everyday activities. Additional advantages objective Q-tip and PFM measurements. 90% of patients with mild SUI and 76% of patients with moderate SUI needed just a single IncontiLase® treatment. In total, 95% of all patients were incontinence free 12 months after the treatment, while 5% still had mild stress incontinence.

What is Stress Urinary Incontinence?

Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) is a common problem in women that causes the involuntary loss of urine during coughing, sneezing, laughing, or physical exertion such as running or climbing stairs.

What causes Stress Urinary Incontinence?

Most adults can hold over 2 cups of urine in their bladder. Stress incontinence occurs when the muscles that control your ability to hold get weak or do not work.

  • The bladder and urethra are supported by the pelvic floor muscles. Urine flows from your bladder through your urethra to the outside.
  • The sphincter is a muscle around the opening of the bladder. It squeezes to prevent urine from leaking through the urethra.

When either set of muscles become weak, urine can pass when pressure is placed on your bladder. You may notice it when you:

  • Cough
  • Sneeze
  • Laugh
  • Exercise
  • Lift heavy objects

Testimonials

“At the beginning I didn’t believe that such a simple treatment as IncontiLase could be so effective in treating indications such as mild and moderate Stress Urinary Incontinence. But when my first patient, whom I treated one year ago for moderate SUI, reported that she is dry from the day of the procedure, I began to change my mind. Today, after treating many patients, I can say that the results we have obtained with this new technology are exceeding my expectations. And after one year, my first patient is still dry and very happy with the change IncontiLase brought to her life.”

RenovaLase®

Vaginal Atrophy
What is RenovaLase®?

RenovaLase® is a unique and innovative, non-invasive 2940 nm Er:YAG laser therapy for the symptoms of vaginal atrophy. It is based on non-ablative photo thermal treatment of the vaginal canal. Clinical studies show that it is an efficient, easy-to-use, quick and safe procedure that eliminates the need for long-term estrogen administration.

How does RenovaLase® work?

The RenovaLase treatment is based on laser-induced, mild and controlled heating of the vaginal tissue, which stimulates angiogenesis, fibroblast activity, and new collagen formation without thermal or ablative damage. The final result is increased epithelial thickness as well as vascularization of the lamina propria, along with a reduction of symptoms such as dryness, itching, irritation and dyspareunia.

What is Vaginal Relaxation & Atrophy?

Vaginal relaxation syndrome (VRS) is defined as laxity of the vaginal wall. It can result in loss of friction and sexual satisfaction for both a woman and her partner. Vaginal atrophy refers to the thinning of the wall of the vagina that often occurs post menopause and is associated with dryness.

What are the causes of Vaginal Relaxation & Atrophy?

The most common cause of vaginal relaxation is overstretching of the vaginal wall during childbirth, which can increase with the number of births. Other causes are congenital connective tissue weakness and natural aging. Vaginal atrophy normally occurs post menopause due to lack of estrogen.

What are traditional treatment options?

Until now, effective results for VRS could only be achieved through invasive surgical treatments such as anterior and posterior vaginal plastic surgery. There are many post-operative complications associated with these procedures and a high degree of dissatisfaction with the results. The treatment options for atrophy due to menopause and typically involve hormone therapy.

Testimonials

“I’m especially thrilled with the positive results we’ve had when treating vaginal atrophy. The use of the FotonaSmooth® laser in this very common pathology has set a new standard of treatment for my practice. We are able to move away from long-term hormone replacement therapies that have received negative media attention and created concern in our patients, and toward laser light treatments that have the patient symptom-free for many months with no adverse complications.”

Clinical Results

The latest scientific  results presen- ted by Dr. Marco Gambacciani1 and Dr. Adrian Gaspar2-4 clearly show a noticeable improvement in the symptoms of vaginal atrophy.

Results show favourable changes in the tropism of the vaginal mucosa, with increases in collagen and vascularization as well as in the glycogen level and the epithelial thickness.

There was no ablation of the tissue or thermal damage and no adverse events.

The positive effects were long lasting as results were sustained

at follow-up 6 months after the treatment. With no need for long-term estrogen treatment, RenovaLase® is also appropriate for patients with estrogen-dependent cancer (such as endometrial cancer, breast cancer, etc.) or with a family background of such cancers, as shown in clinical studies by Dr. Bojanini5 and Dr. Gambacciani.
