What is the CO2RE® Intima?
The CO2RE® Intima is a simple, laser-based device utilized for women’s intimate health and wellness treatments. This treatment can be used to address changes in vaginal health resulting from aging, childbirth, or menopause in three primary areas, including the:
- Vaginal canal
- External vulva/labia
- Opening of the vaginal canal
Because this treatment uses the power of laser energy to gently heat and rejuvenate the internal and external vaginal tissues, patients are able to achieve the significant improvements they want without significant downtime or discomfort.
How Does it Work?
The CO2RE® Intima is used to address changes in both the external and internal vagina. Either one or both of these areas are targeted depending on the patient’s treatment goals.
During external treatment, a single-use handpiece is passed over the patient’s desired treatment areas, delivering laser energy deep into the labial and vulvar tissue fibers. This energy restores the flexibility and shape of the outer vagina and corrects any dyschromia or skin pigmentation present.
During internal treatment, laser energy is delivered through a tube attached to a hygienic, single-use laser handpiece. This tube is inserted into the vaginal canal where it rotates 360 degrees, evenly dispersing laser energy along the inner vaginal wall. This energy stimulates the body’s healing process, enhancing moisture levels, remodeling tissue fibers, and restoring flexibility and shape within the vaginal canal.
What can I Expect from Treatment?
Each CO2RE® Intima treatment takes a quick 10-15 minutes to complete and causes patients mild to no discomfort. Most patients undergo three treatments total to obtain long-lasting improvements. After each session, patients will gradually see improvements in both the look and feel of their inner and outer vaginal tissues. Typically, we recommend that patients receive additional treatments once a year to maintain these improvements.
Am I a Candidate for the CO2RE® Intima?
