Like CO₂RE, CO₂RE Intima uses a CO₂ laser, but it isn’t a fractional resurfacing treatment. CO₂RE Intima rejuvenates vaginal tissues through the same process of a wound healing response, but instead of penetrating the skin in fractional resurfacing, a comfortable wand delivers the laser energy directly to the vaginal walls and the outer tissues.
This energy stimulates the healing response and new collagen and skin cells rejuvenate both the vaginal walls and the outer tissues.
Candidates for CO₂RE Intima treatment
If you’ve noticed changes in sensation and laxity in your vaginal tissues, CO₂RE Intima could be a good option. It’s designed for women who want to relieve the signs of childbearing and aging on their vaginal tissues. This procedure is also good for women who feel self-conscious about the appearance of their outer labia because the laser energy also tightens these tissues. Plus, if you have occasional urinary incontinence, when you cough, for instance, CO₂RE can tighten up the muscles and tissues controlling function
What are the benefits of a CO₂RE Intima treatment?
CO₂RE uses a CO₂ laser. This laser energy is proven to remodel tissue with neoformation of collagen and elastin fibers in skin that has loosened due to aging and other factors such as childbirth. The CO₂ laser energy treats both superficial and deep skin layers, rejuvenating both the vaginal canal and the outside tissues.
These are the conditions that our CO₂RE Intima treatments address:
- Vaginal atrophy
- Vaginal dryness
- Discomfort during sex
- Stress urinary incontinence
- Vaginal laxity
- Sexual function and sensitivity
How many CO₂RE Intima treatments will I need?
Unlike CO₂RE, CO₂RE Intima delivers lower levels of laser energy. For that reason, we recommend three treatments spaced from 3-4 weeks apart. After that initial series, a yearly maintenance treatment is advised to maintain your vaginal firmness.
How long is a CO₂RE Intima session?
CO₂RE Intima is nowhere near as involved as the full fractional treatments of CO₂RE. An Intima treatment takes just 15-30 minutes at New Look Skin Center.
What are other women saying about CO₂RE Intima?
These are the results of studies conducted with women 12 weeks after having their third CO₂RE Intima treatment:
- 81% of women reported improvements in sexual gratification.
- 94% reported an improvement in vaginal rejuvenation.
- 100% reported satisfaction with their treatment.
- 94% would recommend CO₂RE Intima to others.
Is there any downtime after a CO₂RE Intima treatment?
No. These treatments take just 10-15 minutes, and you can return to your regular activities immediately. The only restriction is to refrain from sexual activity for 7 days.
Is a CO₂RE Intima treatment painful?
No. These treatments at New Look Skin are not painful at all. Patients do not need any anesthesia.
