Women's Intimate Wellness
Loss of vaginal tone can be a side effect of natural childbirth and aging. Over time, the vaginal wall, which contains collagen fibers, can stretch and lose tissue tone and elasticity. Unwanted personal stress can be caused by leaking urine when sneezing or coughing due to loose vaginal tone.
Women may experience unwanted pigmentary changes in the vulvar area. Painful intercourse, itching or burning in the genital area can occur as we age. Reduced estrogen levels can lead to a loss of vaginal lubrication.
With CO2RE Intima, your physician can now treat these symptoms without medication or surgery. With CO2RE Intima, women regain their intimate wellness in a painless, non-surgical, proven treatment.
What is CO2RE Intima?
CO2RE Intima is a new, in-office, non-surgical treatment that uses laser energy to treat the symptoms women may be experiencing. 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.
Why CO2RE Intima treatments?
- Safe, quick and easy in-office procedure
- Non-surgical, incisionless
- Mild to no discomfort
- Walk-in, walk-out treatment
- Symptom relief after just one treatment
What is the CO2RE Intima treatment like?
The CO2RE Intima laser treatment is a simple, non-surgical procedure. Your physician will deliver gentle laser energy to the vaginal wall that stimulates a healing response and enhances moisture levels in the vaginal canal. This results in remodeling of the tissue fibers, thereby restoring flexibility and shape. The procedure delivers both immediate and long-lasting relief in a painless, non-surgical, proven treatment.
How long does treatment last?
- A series of up to 3 treatments are typically done. The treatment lasts about 10 minutes.
- A once-a-year single treatment is recommended to maintain symptom relief. This can be done quickly and conveniently during your annual checkup.
Does the CO2RE Intima treatment hurt?
The treatment itself is painless. Some patients report mild discomfort with the laser handpiece tip insertion during the first procedure due to vaginal dryness.
How soon can you expect results?
Many patients have reported that they experience relief right away. Virtually all patients have experienced relief after the first treatment.
Is it safe?
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.

- 43% had heard of vaginal rejuvenation
- 27% would consider a vaginal rejuvenation treatment
- 66% suffer from stress urinary incontinence
- 75% suffer from vaginal dryness
Has the CO2RE Intima been clinically studied?
Recent results from a hospital-based trial, evaluating vaginal rejuvenation laser treatment on premenopausal women, shows positive results and a high patient satisfaction rating for cosmetic improvement and enhancement in sexual functioning. A multi-site study is currently ongoing in the USA to evaluate the laser treatment on post-menopausal women, who are experiencing gynecologic wellness issues.
I have read about other vaginal treatment; why is CO2RE Intima better or different?
CO2RE Intima is FDA cleared to treat all three areas of a women’s intimate needs (external, internal and introitus) and with hygienic, 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. 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.
What does the procedure feel like?
The in-office procedure is virtually painless, requires no anesthesia and typically takes around 15 minutes to treat both internally and externally.
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. As with all laser treatments, it is important to find an experienced healthcare professional whom you can trust.
Are there any limitations after the procedure is done?
Patients can return to normal activities after the procedure, but should refrain from sexual activity for 7 days. Your physician will advise you on a post-procedure regimen that is right for you.
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 bers, 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 child bearing 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 con dent about their feminine health.
Will the procedure be covered by insurance?
The CO2RE Intima treatments are currently not covered by managed care as no processing code has been established.
