Stopping the “Oh No!” With Urethral Bulking in Los Angeles

Your friend told a joke that made you laugh out loud, or you sipped your tea and ended up coughing. Maybe you stepped outside—and sneezed. Or, you really went all in during your workout.

And it made you pee your pants a little—or a lot. That’s stress urinary incontinence, and it strikes over 50% of women age 20 or older.

Urethral bulking in Los Angeles can address your stress incontinence issue, providing better control of urine flow, including improved ability to hold urine in when stress or pressure is exerted on the bladder. Urethral bulking is a short, minimally-invasive procedure with practically no downtime and immediate results.

Stress Incontinence Treatment Benefits


Because urethral bulking strengthens and thickens the urethra to restore natural closing pressure, you achieve better control of flow.

The Urethral Bulking Process

What to Expect



It starts with a personal consultation with your trained and licensed Younique provider. During this one-on-one, they’ll discuss your concerns, your goals for treatment, and your medical history. If your provider determines that urethral bulking provides the best stress incontinence treatment in Los Angeles for your situation, your procedure can be scheduled and you’ll be filled in on the preparation details.



Before your procedure commences, your Younique provider will administer local anesthetic to numb your treatment area. When ready, the provider will guide a very small “scope” into the urethra, and then they will inject the bulking agent into target locations in the urethral wall. This allows your muscle to contract on a smaller space, providing a tighter seal to hold or stop the flow of urine more easily.



Our urethral bulking injections are done on an outpatient basis. Though the injection procedure itself only takes 10 to 15 minutes, you’ll need to stay at Younique until you have successfully passed urine, which usually takes around 2 to 3 hours.

Once home, most Younique patients have no difficulty urinating. However, some patients may have difficulty completely emptying their bladder because of swelling in the urethral walls. This issue usually resolves within 48 hours.

You’ll need to avoid heavy lifting and strenuous activities for 4 to 6 weeks to allow the bulking agent to fully settle.
