Botox for Urinary Incontinence?
Botox is commonly known as a cosmetic treatment, but it can also be used to treat urinary incontinence and severe urinary frequency and urgency. Botox can be injected into the bladder muscle to stop involuntary urine flow and intense or painful urges to urinate. The treatment can be performed at Women’s Center for Pelvic Wellness, and does not require a hospital visit.
How Does Bladder Botox Work?
Botox is a neurotoxin that blocks signals between the nerves and muscles, allowing the muscles to relax. When injected into the bladder muscle, Botox will prevent it from being overactive/contracting. By reducing bladder contractions, Botox can:
- Increase your bladder capacity
- Reduce urinary leakage episodes
- Decrease frequency of voids in the day or night
- Decrease the pressure in your bladder
