Urinary incontinence is an embarrassing problem that is often neglected. It is estimated that one in four women is suffering, has suffered or will suffer from urinary incontinence. Therefore, it can be considered a common problem. Only 25% of the women tell their doctor about the problem, while 40% decides to consult a doctor only after 5 years from the onset of the condition.
Urinary incontinence can affect every one of us, regardless of age. One of the causes of this problem is the sensitivity of the female reproductive parts to hormonal changes (pregnancy, childbirth, menopause).
There are three types of urinary incontinence:
• Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) resulting from the insufficiency of the apparatus that closes the urethra or the excessive mobility of the bladder neck;
• Urge incontinence resulting from the increased activity of the detrusor urinae muscle or decreased elasticity of the bladder wall;
• Mixed incontinence is a combination of the symptomatic profiles of both types of urinary incontinence.
At DER-MED Centre, we perform the procedure using the MonaLisa Touch equipment. The laser is equipped with a special endpiece that is inserted into the vagina by the doctor. The energy emitted by the instrument causes photothermal contraction of the vaginal and pelvic floor muscles. As a result, the inclination angle of the urethra changes. The procedure is comfortable and resembles a normal gynaecological examination. If the patient feels embarrassed by her condition, which is completely natural, the short duration of the incontinence laser treatment using the MonaLisa Touch apparatus allows it to be discreetly performed between everyday duties.

Preparation for the procedure

You can do a cervical screening test at DER-MED Centre during a consultation with your gynaecologist. If you already have your cervical screening test result, the consultation can be combined with the procedure. This solution is chosen very often by our patients.
