Do you experience leakage due to an overactive bladder? Urinary incontinence is common but can’t always be fully treated with oral medication. FDA-approved Botox® may be the right treatment to help you with your overactive bladder. Botox can increase bladder capacity, reduce urinary leakage, and decrease any pressure in the bladder that can cause leakage.
Small injections are made to the bladder wall to prevent the bladder muscles from contracting, therefore improving all aspects of urinary incontinence. Most treatments take less than 30 minutes and the area can be numbed prior to the injections for optimal comfort.
