Laser treatment for stress urinary incontinence (SUI)

Close up woman stomachache with toilet in the morning, health care concept, selective focus

Stress urinary incontinence is defined as a urinary loss during an abdominal overpressure (coughing, intense sports activity ...).
The 30% of women suffer from childbirth and menopause.
The main cause is lack of pelvic floor support and vaginal looseness.
In women with stress incontinence, the connective tissue metabolism of the vaginal mucosa is modified, which causes a decrease in the production of collagen necessary for the support function.




Laser treatment is effective only for mild and moderate urinary incontinence.
The laser stimulates collagen synthesis, improves the trophicity (thickness and quality) of the vaginal mucosa, its vascularity and elasticity.

We often do 3 sessions at 1 month intervals then one session once a year.
The results are estimated at 4 to 8 weeks after each session but the improvement can continue until 6 months later.


A stop of any local treatment is recommended at least 48 hours before the laser treatment.

We will have verified that you have a gynecological examination (including cervico-vaginal smear) normal dating less than one year and a urine negative examination dating less than 3 days.

The laser handpiece, introduced vaginally, is sterile and disposable. Laser shots are usually very little or not felt. An external passage in the vulvar mucosa is sometimes necessary afterwards.

Post instructions

It is advisable to hang for about ten days baths (bath, pool, sea, jacuzzi ...), local treatments, aggressive cleaners during the toilet, sports and sex for 3-5 days.


Contreindications are :
- The pregnancy.
- Genital or urinary infections in progress. A urine test will be done
- Significant genital prolapse.
- Genital bleeding in progress or unexplored. In addition, the procedure can not be performed during the  menstruations.
- Severe urinary incontinence is not a good indication.

Side effects

No serious adverse events have been reported so far. The treatment can sometimes cause a slight bleeding for 24-48h. An increase in physiological losses can sometimes be observed. A feeling of edema and overheating can be felt for 1 to 3 days.


I had urine leaks, thanks to laser sessions, my problem was fixed.


Despite perineal reeducation after pregnancy, I had trouble keeping urine in. I decided to consult Dr Romano on a friend’s recommendation, the result of the laser sessions was stunning. I’m very satisfied.


Following 3 child birth, I suffered from urine loss when coughing. I had heard of a new laser treatment. I did it with Doctor Romano and I’m glad.
