Childbirth, hormonal changes and the natural effects of aging can impact the feeling and appearance of a woman’s vagina.
Some patients have tried medication or other techniques to address these intimate concerns, while others are hesitant to seek treatment because they do not want to undergo surgery.
Fortunately, vaginal rejuvenation with CO2RE Intima can alleviate vaginal dryness and looseness and urinary issues without incisions, discomfort, or downtime.
This revolutionary procedure can be performed in less than an hour and optimize a woman’s sexual satisfaction, confidence, and quality of life.
Here’s everything you need to know about vaginal rejuvenation with CO2RE Intima.
What Is Vaginal Rejuvenation with CO2RE Intima?
CO2RE Intima is a non-surgical treatment that restores tone and elasticity to the internal and external portion of female genitalia.
The procedure also improves moisture production by rebuilding the secretory glands.
How does CO2RE Intima work?
This treatment applies controlled CO2 laser energy to the vaginal wall and labia to induce a wound healing effect. The body then produces new collagen and elastin to remodel damaged tissue and cells.
As a result, CO2RE Intima is able to return flexibility and shape to the vagina, plump mucosa, and increase lubrication.
What intimate concerns can vaginal rejuvenation with CO2RE Intima address?
CO2RE Intima is an excellent option for the treatment of: Vaginal itching or burning, dryness, painful intercourse, stress incontinence, loss of vaginal tone, skin laxity of the labia, and pigmentary changes in the skin.
What to Expect from a CO2RE Intima Treatment?
Because CO2RE Intima is FDA-approved to treat the vaginal canal (internal portion), opening to the vagina (introitus), and labia (external portion), patients can focus on all three areas in one session.
To start, a topical anesthetic is applied to the labia, and then work begins on the internal tissue and strengthening the vaginal wall. Many patients report that this part of treatment to feels similar to a transvaginal ultrasound and is virtually painless.
Next, the numbing cream is removed from the external genitalia, and lasering begins on this area. The sensation is described as warmer than the internal area, but still very tolerable.
Is There Any Downtime After the Procedure?
Post-procedure, patients should abstain from sex and tampon use for one week.
Otherwise, there is no downtime or recovery for vaginal rejuvenation with CO2RE Intima.
When Can Results Be Noticed?
CO2RE Intima has a 90 percent satisfaction rate, and many patients note a decrease in urinary incontinence, increased lubrication, and that their vaginal muscles feel tighter after one session.
Women are also pleased to see cosmetic changes to the labial skin including improvement in color and shape.
However, a series of three treatments spaced three-to-four weeks apart is recommended for optimal effects. While results are long-lasting, an annual maintenance treatment will help preserve CO2RE Intima benefits.
