Can Laser Treatment Fix Incontinence? | VIDA

Learn How Laser Therapy Can Help Relieve Your Incontinence 


Involuntary loss of urine, a condition known as urinary incontinence, is a fairly common problem for women of all ages. Some women experience loss of urine while doing a specific activity such as running or sneezing. Others


experience incontinence after a sudden urge to urinate and not making it to the toilet. While not a life-threatening condition, urinary incontinence can be very limiting, embarrassing and interfere with your daily life. Men also experience urinary incontinence, but things like pregnancy, childbirth, menopause, and the actual anatomy of the female urinary tract make women much more prone to incontinence.

For women who have had more than one vaginal delivery or given birth to a larger baby, urinary incontinence is almost a guaranteed condition. Childbirth can cause considerable damage to the connective tissue in the pelvic area, giving way to stress incontinence.


For years, women had three choices regarding their urinary incontinence: wear a diaper, get surgery or learn to live with it by drastically changing their habits. Nowadays, women are excited to try a different approach, a treatment that is both effective and painless: the feminine laser.

Let’s talk about Juliet, a true laser fix for incontinence!


Laser treatment for urinary incontinence

Juliet is popularly known as the feminine laser because it was designed specifically to help women with some of their most aggravating and intimate conditions; such as vaginal dryness, loss of vaginal tightening and, of course, urinary incontinence.

Juliet is a handheld laser that doesn’t require anesthesia, is virtually painless, requires no downtime and is effective from the first session which only lasts 30 minutes on average.


How does laser treatment improve urinary incontinence?

When you have an appointment for Juliet, here is what you can expect:

  • The doctor will go over all the conditions you want to treat. In the case of urinary incontinence, it’s important to rule out UTIs or other underlying causes.
  • Once you’re ready for the treatment, you’ll be lying comfortably on your back as your doctor talks you through everything. He or she will insert Juliet’s hand piece into your vagina, which will feel similar to when you have a vaginal ultrasound, until it reaches the cervix. Juliet’s handheld device is very precise and treats only the affected area, the pelvic floor muscle.
  • Once in place, the laser generates a controlled burn that has a full 360 degrees rotation. The laser reaches the entire pelvic floor muscle regenerating the connective tissue to help it regain its capacity to contract (and hold in your urine), guaranteeing that there won’t be side effects.  
  • Juliet laser also stimulates collagen production of the vaginal walls, improving the tone of the pelvic muscle.
  • After 30 to 40 minutes, the treatment is done and you won’t need to worry about recovery or downtime. Voilà!


Juliet laser treatment delivers results from its first session, however, most patients see a much more lasting benefit after two or three sessions. This is because the unique technology of the laser, which combines ablation and thermal heating, starts regenerating the tissue immediately.

Will laser treatment effectively fix my urinary incontinence?

The good news is that almost any woman is a candidate for Juliet and can benefit from it.

  • Patients with other vaginal conditions like prolapse, endometriosis and pelvic relaxation have no contraindications for the treatment.
  • For new moms, it is recommended to wait at least 3 months after giving birth.
  • Women with an IUD or IUS can safely use Juliet.
  • Both women with mild and severe urinary incontinence can benefit from Juliet. While the most severe cases of incontinence will not disappear, symptoms will be greatly improved after just one session.
