What is SUI?
SUI is an abbreviation of stress urinary incontinence that’s related to the involuntary leaking of urine, especially under any stressful activities like coughing or sneezing. Also, V-childbirth is considered to be the most common cause behind the occurrence of SUI. Aging and hormonal changes are furthermore some add-on contributors.
Earlier, only surgery was the sole option for women suffering from SUI. But thanks to the evolving technology, it’s now possible to treat it via laser as well.
Laser Therapy for SUI
Laser helps in the production of collagen/ muscle fibers. It also increases the thickness of the skin and increases blood vessel production all of which contribute to the correction of SUI. Research confirms there is a reduction in the stress incontinence symptoms post laser therapy.
Investigations such as sonography confirm the reduction in the mobility of the bladder neck; thus reduction in the symptoms of SUI. The procedure also strengthens the pelvic floor muscles. Thus, all the related symptoms such as incontinence, the laxity of v-tissues, and sexual dysfunction improve.
The Procedure of Laser Therapy for Correcting SUI:
At Kiara Lifestyle Clinic, the entire treatment procedure is supervised by Dr. Kriti who is one of the best dermatologists in Delhi, Shahdara. The procedure involves the dermatologist to apply a thin layer of anesthetic cream over the area which is then exposed to the laser therapy.
The v-tissues are heated up to 60 degrees while the laser therapy is carried forward. The procedure usually takes 3 sessions that are 3 to 4 weeks apart.
You might also experience some minor but temporary side effects such as warmth, increase in the v-discharge, as well as transient/ temporary urge urinary incontinence.
