WHAT IS INCONTILASE?
For the first time in human history there is non-surgical, no downtime, effective procedure to treat stress urinary incontinence. Traditionally the options were invasive and costly surgery that required hospitalization, and recovery time or there were Kegel exercises with marginal effects. IncontiLase is a minimally invasive, comfortable, and quick laser procedure for the treatment of mild to moderate stress urinary incontinence. Incontilase utilizes non-ablative, fractional laser beams to remodel collagen, synthesize new collagen fibers, and strengthen the region of the anterior vaginal wall to greater support the bladder. In short IncontiLase is nonsurgical support for the bladder.

This procedure has been tested and used in Europe since 2010 and in Canada since 2013. It has proved successful in producing a tightening effect to the vagina through stimulation of collagen regeneration and remodeling. This procedure (in 2014) has not yet been FDA approved. I understand that it is being used on an “off label” basis. “Off label” use of Intimalase/Incontilase/Renovalase/Prolaplase Laser has been explained to me by Physician/Physician Assistant/Nurse. I accept and consent to the off label use of Intimalase/Incontilase/Renovalase/Prolaplase Laser.
