1. Botox Treatments
If an overactive bladder is the cause of urinary incontinence, Botox treatments may provide relief. To treat this condition, a physician injects Botox into the bladder muscle. Botox then prevents the muscle from contracting and causing leaking, feelings of an intense need to urinate, and urinary frequency. Patients may notice results within two weeks of their first Botox injection. This result typically lasts six months until the next treatment. Side effects may include urinary tract infections, pain while urinating, and difficulty fully emptying the bladder.
