Bladder Botox

Botox is a neurotoxin that stalls nerve tissues, blocking nerve signals sent to the muscles and allowing relaxation. While Botox is commonly used as a cosmetic treatment, many doctors also use it to treat urinary incontinence. A Botox injection into the bladder muscle works to stop involuntary urine flow and intense or painful urges to urinate. This outpatient treatment can be performed at the Kimble Center for Intimate Cosmetic Surgery and does not require a hospital visit. When injected into the bladder muscle, Botox prevents overactivity or unintentional contraction. By reducing bladder contractions, Botox can:

  • Increase your bladder capacity
  • Reduce urinary leakage episodes
  • Decrease frequency of involuntary urination in the day or night
  • Decrease the pressure in your bladder

Optimal results are usually seen after two weeks, and because Botox wears off, the procedure will need to be repeated to maintain the benefits. The length of results varies from patient to patient, but we find most patients only require one injection per year.
