I have recently introduced this new in-demand women’s intimate wellness treatment into my practice. With years of experience in aesthetic genital plastic surgery, the CO2RE intima laser has added advanced technology to enhance my patient’s results and outcomes without using conventional oral hormones. CO2 laser treatment remains the gold standard for tissue rejuvenation in facial aesthetics, and is used for vaginal tightening as well as vaginal bleaching.
How does CO2RE Intima Laser improve intimate symptoms?
With CO2RE Intima Laser we can now improve vaginal aging symptoms without medication or surgery. By treating vulvo-vaginal atrophy, the CO2RE Intima Laser rejuvenates the vagina. Women are therefore able to regain their intimate wellness in a painless, non-surgical treatment. Clinical results show an average shrinkage of 17% in the vaginal canal after a single Intima Laser treatment. In 95% of cases patients report a noticeable difference, and most women who had the procedure done said that they felt more intense sensation, improved lubrication and deeper orgasms. Improvements continue for up to 4 weeks after the procedure.
What is the CO2RE Intima Laser treatment?
The laser is a simple nonsurgical procedure which is quick, comfortable and performed in the office. Gentle laser energy is delivered to the vaginal wall. Hundreds of tiny pillars of Laser energy stimulate the natural regeneration of the vaginal tissue. This results in remodeling of the tissue fibers, stimulating a healing response. The laser restores the flexibility and shape of the vaginal wall, leading to improved stimulation and enhanced moisture levels in the vaginal canal. An external probe is used to improve the quality and color of the external skin as well as the introitus.
How long does a treatment last?
A series of up to 3 treatments are typically done in the privacy of my rooms. These sessions are monthly.
The treatment lasts about 30 minutes. A once a year treatment is recommended to maintain symptomatic relief.
Does the CO2RE Intima Laser treatment hurt?
The treatment is painless. Some patients may report a mild discomfort with the laser hand piece tip insertion during the procedure due to vaginal dryness.
It is important to have a routine pap smear at least 3 months prior to your treatment. Today most gynecologists perform a routine pelvic ultrasound at the time of your pap smear. All patients will be treated prophylactically to prevent eruption of Herpes Zoster Infection.
How soon can you expect results?
Many patients have reported that they experience results within the first few weeks. Virtually all patients experience relief of symptoms after the first treatment. The full effect however will be experienced after 3 months following the 3rd treatment.
Is it safe?
Treatments are safe and effective, with mild to no discomfort and very little downtime.
Are there any contraindications?
If you have any active genital infections, then this procedure is not indicated, and you should seek advice from your gynecologist. Your gynecologist should also manage other gynecological conditions including bleeding, tumors or pregnancy.
As a plastic surgeon my expertise and passion is the aesthetic treatment of my patients. Any medical gynecological treatment will be referred to a gynecologist and I encourage all my patients to see their own gynecologist for their yearly checkups to ensure optimal intimate health.
What patients are saying?
“I found that the dryness and itching I was experiencing completely disappeared”
“I sometimes had trouble with leaking urine, I noticed an improvement in my ability to retain urine after the first treatment and it improved even more after the second treatment”
“I highly recommend this treatment. It was very easy to undergo and very tolerable. I noticed increased lubrication and a feeling of tighter”
