STUDIES SHOW SIGNIFICANT IMPROVEMENT IN VAGINAL SYMPTOMS WITH CO2RE INTIMA
Changes in vaginal health related to childbirth, aging and menopause can lead to dryness, painful intercourse, laxity, and incontinence. Treatments typically involve lubricants, hormones, Kegels and surgery. The CO2RE INTIMA offers a safe, non-invasive and effective option for women and there is a growing body of evidence from long term studies supporting the outcomes. Dr. Garcia is the lead author in a study which demonstrates greater than 90% patient satisfaction one year post-treatment. An internal survey of patients at LUMINA reveals similar findings.
The CO2 fractional laser treatment stimulates collagen and elastin production and creates new blood vessel formation. These biopsy-proven changes in the vaginal mucosa result in improved vaginal tone, moisture, sexual response, comfort with intercourse, and bladder function. The CO2RE technology ablates and coagulates collagen resulting in significant tissue remodeling which cannot be achieved with other energies like radiofrequency (RF) that are used for vaginal rejuvenation. The CO2RE INTIMA also has an external handpiece which can be used to treat the vaginal opening and external skin. This treatment is ideal for laxity and discoloration. The internal treatments do not require anesthesia and have minimal discomfort. The external treatments require a topical numbing cream for 15 minutes prior.
