A Treatment for Women of all Ages

his vaginal rejuvenation treatment is not limited to women of a certain age. This is a treatment from which anyone can benefit. Whether you want to bounce back from childbirth or aging, or perhaps you are experiencing medical issues and seeking relief, this laser treatment can help. This is also a great option for women in the perimenopausal and menopausal stages of life.

How Does the Co2re Intima Work?

The CO2RE Intima is a unique fractional carbon dioxide technology. This form of laser has the longest wavelength of all the lasers on the market. This means it is best for treating deep tissue, severe texture changes, and scars. The CO2RE Intima includes an angulated swivel arm for 360 degrees of treatment. The laser is able to treat the entire canal and all of the vaginal walls. The exterior handpieces can be applied to the labia majora and minor.

The use of the carbon dioxide laser causes neoformation of collagen and elastic fibers in the vaginal skin. The vagina experiences increased muscle tone. This is due to the tightening of supportive structures of the vulvo-vaginal complex. A study of 48 patients that received three treatments found that they experienced significant improvement in vulvo-vaginal atrophy symptoms (dryness, burning, itching, urinary incontinence). This is great news for women going through menopause or who have experienced chemotherapy or hormonal treatment.

The Statistics Speak for Themselves

According to Syneron Candela, the makers of the CO2RE Intima laser:

  • 100% of women reported satisfaction with the treatment
  • 94% would recommend it
  • 81% of women reported improvement in sexual gratification after treatment

What to Expect During Vaginal Rejuvenation Treatments

The treatment only takes 15 to 20 minutes and offers minimal to no discomfort. Patients return to normal activity right away and can resume sexual activity after seven days. A one-time disposable piece is attached to the CO2RE Intima laser. The piece is then gently inserted and withdrawn slowly while the laser is activated. The 360 swivel allows for the piece to treat all areas of the vaginal lining and vault.

I am excited to offer the CO2RE Intima Vaginal Rejuvenation for many reasons. I have a background in family medicine and I am truly looking forward to fusing my two great passions for women’s health and aesthetic dermatology to provide this amazing laser treatment to my patients. This is an amazing treatment that gives women the chance to regain power and youth over their intimate health. While CO2RE Intima offers great aesthetic results, it also offers relief to many medical issues that women face on a daily basis. You now have the option to gain control over issues that may be affecting your self-esteem, sexual pleasure, and overall health.
