HIFU for Urinary Stress Incontinence

HIFU is becoming increasingly popular as a gentle yet powerful anti-ageing treatment to rejuvenate the skin and restore a youthful appearance.

But it is now also indicated medically as a treatment for a number of conditions, including urinary stress incontinence.

HIFU treatment for stress incontinence is relatively new in the UK, and is currently only offered by a select number of clinics.


We’re incredibly excited to be one of Cheshire’s only HIFU treatment centres, especially as it offers such remarkable results in a short space of time with no anaesthesia, incisions or down-time required.

What is urinary stress incontinence?

Urinary stress incontinence is an issue many women struggle with, especially after having children or going through the menopause. As the pelvic floor muscles become weaker it becomes more difficult (and sometimes impossible) to control bladder function, leading to leaks and accidents.


Stress incontinence can be inconvenient, uncomfortable and embarrassing – it’s a difficult topic to discuss, and yet many women suffer silently with the problem.


Women often feel like they have to put up with stress incontinence alone – there’s a taboo surrounding the subject, and a misconception that nothing can be done. But thanks to revolutionary HIFU treatment stress incontinence can be significantly improved in a gentle, non-invasive manner.


How can non-surgical HIFU Incontinence Treatment help?  

Many women put up with symptoms believing there’s nothing that can be done to address stress incontinence – but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Most clients are surprised to learn that there is a highly effective treatment option available with no surgery, downtime or extensive cost involved. If you find you are leaking when sneezing or exercising, HIFU treatment can help.


During HIFU treatment, a combination of controlled ultrasound waves are delivered under the skin which heat the deeper layers of vaginal tissue. This thermal therapy causes a warming of the tissues, triggering collagen production and resulting in a tightening effect.


Benefits include:

  • Stimulated collagen production in skin and muscle tissue
  • Tightening of the vagina
  • Tightened pelvic floor muscles
  • Improved vaginal laxity


Feminine HIFU treatments can also address concerns such as menopausal vaginal atrophy, sexual dysfunction, vaginal dryness and frequent vaginitis.


Within 30 days you will start to see results, which build over time following each treatment.


What to expect during HIFU treatment

During treatment a device called an energy probe will deliver the ultrasound in a targeted manner, rotating automatically to ensure that all areas are covered. You’ll be free to resume your normal daily activities right away, so you won’t need to plan for any down-time post-treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

Please contact us with any questions or if you would like to arrange a consultation based on your exact needs.

How long does a treatment take?

HIFU for stress incontinence normally takes just 20-30 minutes, although it’s best to allow up to an hour for your treatment each time.

Is HIFU painful?

HIFU is not painful – though you may feel a warm, tingling sensation during the treatment. If you find you are in significant discomfort at any time your therapist will be on hand to help.

How many treatments will I need?

One of the wonderful things about HIFU is how quickly you can expect to see results – most women find that they only need 4-6 sessions to see a significant improvement.

How long will it take to see results?

You should start to see a difference straight away within the first 30 days after each session – but the results will gradually improve over the course of 8-12 weeks following treatment.

How much does HIFU for incontinence cost?

HIFU is offered in tailored packages. Please get in touch to discuss your specific requirements and we’ll put together a personalised treatment plan for you.

Are ongoing treatments required?

A top-up treatment may be required periodically – most women find that the results of their treatment last for over 12 months before a further session is needed.
