I have read about other vaginal treatments; why is CO2RE Intima better or different?
CO2RE Intima is a module of the CO2RE device which treats all three areas of a women’s intimate needs (external, internal and introitus) and with sterile, single-use hand pieces, thereby assuring women of the results and hygiene they expect for treatments to their most intimate area. Additionally, CO2RE Intima utilizes a CO2 laser. CO2 lasers have been proven to remodel tissue with neoformation of collagen and elastic fibers in atrophic skin.5 CO2 technology also provides physicians with the ability to treat both superficial and deep skin layers simultaneously and with the precision control they need over the intensity, pattern and depth of ablation, which is very important for treatments to this intimate area.
Is the procedure safe? Are there risks to laser treatment, especially in the vaginal area?
The CO2RE device has FDA clearance for a range of gynecological and genitourinary indications. CO2RE Intima offers solutions for a range of intimate aesthetic procedures. Treatments are safe and effective with mild to no discomfort, and with little downtime.
How many treatments does it take?
Patients receive three in-office treatments that are spaced ~3 weeks apart.
When will patients see results?
Most CO2RE Intima patients feel and see improvement after the very first treatment, although the procedure calls for three treatments.
How long does treatment last?
After the third treatment, patients should expect to come back annually for a maintenance treatment.
Can CO2RE Intima be used for Vaginal Laxity? Vaginal Relaxation Syndrome?
Loss of vaginal sensation and tone can be a side effect of vaginal childbirth and aging. Over time, the vaginal wall and the entrance to the vaginal canal (Introitus), both which contain collagen fibers, can stretch and lose vaginal tissue tone and elasticity. The CO2RE Intima laser treatment results in a remodeling of these tissue fibers, thereby restoring flexibility and shape.
Can CO2RE Intima be used for modifying the appearance of the vaginal area?
The CO2RE Intima laser treatment can remodel labial and vulvar tissue fibers, restoring flexibility and shape. The treatment can also address dyschromia and skin pigmentation resulting in improved skin texture and tone.
For which women is the CO2RE Intima most suitable?
CO2RE Intima is designed for women who want to relieve the signs of childbearing and aging in their vaginal area. This includes post childbearing and peri and menopausal women, women who desire enhancement in sexual functioning and a better sexual experience, women who seek vaginal cosmetic improvement and women who want to feel more confident about their feminine health.
