As women get older, they may often experience changes in vaginal wellness or appearance leading to unpleasant symptoms affecting their quality of life. Symptoms may include burning, itching, dryness, and painful intercourse. Cosmetic changes to their genitalia may include pigmentation variation and sagging of the vulva skin.
Loss of vaginal sensation and tone can result from vaginal childbirth, menopause and aging. Over time, the vaginal wall and entrance to the vaginal canal can stretch and lose tissue tone and elasticity. Reduced estrogen levels can lead to thinning of the vaginal tissue and a loss of vaginal lubrication.
What is the solution?
CO2RE® Intima is a new, in-office, non-surgical treatment that uses laser energy to treat these changes and symptoms women may be experiencing.
How does CO2RE work?
CO2RE® Intima is a quick, simple and safe procedure that is performed right in our office. The CO2RE® Intima medical laser delivers controlled energy to the vaginal or vulva tissue, promoting the production of collagen in the cells. The delivery of this laser energy to the vaginal wall stimulates a healing response that results in remodeling of the tissue fibers, thereby restoring flexibility and shape while also enhancing moisture levels in the vaginal canal. The result is better skin tone, texture and appearance.
Internally, laser energy is delivered through a tube called the Articulated Arm, which is attached to a sterile, single-use laser hand piece that is inserted into the vaginal canal. The laser energy is gently delivered to the vaginal wall in a 360-degree manner, stimulating a healing response that enhances moisture levels and results in the remodeling of the vaginal tissue fibers, thereby restoring their flexibility and shape.
Externally, the CO2RE® Intima delivers gentle laser energy, which results in remodeling of labial and vulvar tissue fibers. The treatment can also address dyschromia and skin pigmentation, resulting in improved texture and tone.
The procedure is virtually painless, requires no anesthesia and typically takes around 15 minutes to treat both internally and externally. Many CO2RE® Intima patients feel and see improvement after the first treatment, although the procedure calls for three treatments spaced 3-4 weeks apart for optimal results. An annual maintenance treatment is also recommended.
Patients may return to normal activities immediately, but should refrain from sexual activity for 7 days.
