Botox Treatments For Overactive Bladder

Botox is a prescription medication that blocks the nerve impulses that trigger Overactive Bladder (OAB). A treatment takes about 30 minutes. One injection typically prevents OAB symptoms for about six months, and treatments can occur as often as every three months. 

How a Botox treatment for Overactive Bladder works:

  1. You are given an antibiotic to take prior to your treatment to help prevent infection.
  2. At your office appointment you are given a numbing agent, possibly in combination with a sedative.
  3. Once the bladder is numb, a cystoscope is inserted through the urethra.
  4. Botox, introduced via needle through the cystoscope, is injected into multiple areas of the bladder muscle.
  5. Once completed, you are observed for an additional 30 minutes, and you will need to empty your bladder before leaving the office.

Real Results In A Few Short Weeks

Patients typically show improvement in their Overactive Bladder symptoms as soon as two weeks following treatment. Six weeks after treatment, patients have experienced:

  • Over 20 fewer leakage episodes per week.
  • Increased bladder capacity.
  • Decreased pressure in the bladder.
