CO2RE Intima is a non-surgical laser treatment to relieve the vaginal symptoms women may be experiencing related to childbirth and aging. These symptoms might include vaginal dryness, laxity, loss of sensation during intercourse, pain during intercourse or urinary incontinence or leaking. CO2RE Intima is a medical laser that delivers controlled CO2 energy to the vaginal or vulva tissue – so cells make more collagen – improving skin tone, texture and appearance, as well as thickening and strengthening the vaginal wall tissue and the surrounding pelvic floor tissue.
CO2RE Intima utilizes a CO2 laser. CO2 lasers have been proven to remodel tissue and stimulate collagen formation. 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. This device has been used for many years already in the United States, with a good history of safety and effectiveness in treating womens symptoms.
