The importance for women to maintain and restore vaginal health has received more attention in recent years. Vaginal symptoms related to childbirth and aging, as well as previous health issues, can affect the texture and tone of the vaginal area, causing vaginal wall tissue to become stretched. The loss of vaginal elasticity can result in painful sexual intercourse, poor vaginal appearance and health, incontinence, menopause dryness, or symptoms of vulvovaginal atrophy, among other symptoms.
Laser therapy for increased sexual function and other concerns is an increasingly reputable non-incisive solution to rejuvenate vaginal tissue. CO2RE Intima is a non-surgical treatment that applies laser energy for the treatment of vaginal symptoms related to aging, in an in-office setting. Its medical laser technology delivers controlled CO2 energy to skin tissue to improve vaginal tone and texture by enhancing skin cell production of collagen, a vital component for skin to develop and maintain a youthful appearance.
The full course of treatment can be completed in 3 sessions spaced 4 weeks apart, with yearly maintenance visits recommended. CO2RE Intima is not only used for treating internal issues, but also for improving the appearance of the vulvar area. The internal and external rejuvenation has beneficial results that can include a renewed shape, with better pigmentation, tone, and flexibility; dryness relief; sexual function enhancement; a reduction in the appearance of scaring from childbirth and/or surgical procedures; improvement in overall vaginal appearance; and decreased incontinence.
The FDA approves CO2RE Intima to treat a number of aesthetic surgeries for gynecology, dermatology, and plastic surgery. The therapy takes only a few minutes per session, and requires no anesthesia or pain relief. Patients can expect to see improvement after just one treatment.
