Stress, which is the basis of many health problems that can be treated with different systems, also triggers urinary incontinence.
Urinary incontinence is a very common problem that concerns many women and impairs their quality of life. “It is actually very difficult to determine the true prevalence of this problem, which causes both social and hygienic problems. The reasons for this are that our patients are afraid, embarrassed, perceive urinary incontinence as a natural consequence of old age, and are prejudiced that medical treatment does not give good results in urinary incontinence. In female anatomy, there are muscle bundles and collagen fibers that carry the bladder and urinary canal (urethra). These are actually weak ties. During the normal functioning of the bladder, these ligaments prevent urine from escaping from the bladder. Childbirth, menopause, chronic cough, hormonal changes, constipation, excess weight, excessive weakness, some surgeries cause the weakening of these muscles and fibers. In these cases, urinary incontinence begins.”
Laser Therapy for Urinary Incontinence
After three different methods of urinary tract strengthening exercises called 'kegel exercises', medical treatment and surgical treatment, which have been used for the treatment of the disease until now, laser treatment has started to be applied. “With the advancement of technology, there have been some developments in this field as well. In addition to the 3 different treatments previously applied, fractional CO2 laser therapy has achieved remarkable success in urinary incontinence and vaginal rejuvenation. Fractional CO2 lasers, which we use especially in urinary incontinence, which we call stress type, and SUI (urinary incontinence due to increased intra-abdominal pressure in cases such as coughing, laughing, sneezing), are effective both on the upper and lower layers of the skin. In fractional laser systems, laser light is sent to the skin in microscopic columns. The main target in these areas is water, that is, water-containing structures such as collagen, blood vessels, keratinocytes are damaged in a controlled manner. Living cells in the intact areas right next to the thermally damaged area migrate to the damaged area and stimulate the repair mechanism there. Thus, tissue is renewed in the areas where these tiny columns are sent. It increases the thickness of the vaginal wall by treating the entire urinary canal neck and surrounding area in urinary incontinence. This provides better support from the lower part of the middle urethra. As a result, SUI symptoms are significantly reduced, resulting in better control of urination and long-term urinary incontinence.”
With İzmir laser urinary incontinence treatment, patients can complete their treatment in a short time and return to their normal life on the same day. “The short duration of the procedure, the absence of a surgical incision or suture, is an extremely easy and tolerable situation for patients.” With this method, the problem of urinary incontinence in women can be solved very easily, and women can continue their daily lives on the same day.
