CO2RE Intima is a new, in office, non-surgical laser treatment to relieve the vaginal symptoms women may be experiencing related to childbirth and aging.Adding versatility and value to the CO2RE laser system for aesthetic rejuvenation and wrinkle
Adding versatility and value to the CO2RE laser system for aesthetic rejuvenation and wrinkle reduction, the new CO2RE Intima module from Candela provides physicians with a top-tier technology for noninvasive vaginal tissue remodeling that’s both patient and user-friendly, meeting a growing need in the field of women’s intimate health and wellness. With the CO2RE Intima physicians can remodel and restore the tissue of the vaginal wall and vulvar to improve not only the aesthetic appearance of women’s external genitalia (including vulvar dystrophy and dyschromia) but overall functional vaginal health as well, providing a relatively inexpensive treatment with appeal for women of all ages.
Historically, the subject of vaginal health and related conditions arising from childbirth, aging and menopause have been difficult for women to discuss and often considered ‘just part of life.’ Treatment options ranged from Kegel exercises and hormone replacement to surgery, with a massive gulf in between. Results were less than impressive considering the associated cost and hassle. Treatment with CO2RE Intima fills this gap as a safe and effective non-invasive alternative.
CO2RE Intima treats all three areas of a women’s intimate needs (external, internal and introitus) and with sterile, 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 skin2.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.
The CO2RE device has FDA clearance for a range of gynecological and genitourinary indications. Treatments are safe and effective with mild to no discomfort, and with little downtime. CO2RE Intima is a quick, simple and safe procedure that can be done right in a doctor’s office. The procedure is virtually painless, requires no anesthesia and typically takes around 15 minutes to treat both internally and externally.
Patients typically receive three in-office treatments that are spaced 3 weeks apart. Many CO2RE Intima patients feel and see improvement after the first treatment, although the procedure calls for three treatments spaced 3-4 weeks apart for optimal results. After the third treatment, patients should expect an annual maintenance treatment to sustain results. With CO2 Intima, there is virtually no downtime. Patients can return to normal activities right after the procedure, but should refrain from sexual activity for 7 days.
As with all laser treatments, it is important to find an experienced healthcare professional whom you can trust.
