CO2RE Intima Feminine Rejuvenation

What are women talking about?

Regardless of age, women can experience changes in vaginal wellness or appearance that can affect quality of life in unexpected ways, leading to unpleasant symptoms.

What is CO2RE Intima?

CO2RE Intima is a new, in-office, non-surgical treatment that uses laser energy to treat the symptoms you 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.

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 postmenopausal women, who are experiencing gynecologic wellness issues, and is being conducted by Dr. Martin Garcia, a board-certified Obstetrician/Gynecologist specialist in women’s gynecological health, endocrinology and infertility at Garcia OB/GYN Associates in Florida, and Dr. Julene Samuels, a board-certified Plastic Surgeon and Associate Clinical Professor of Plastic Surgery at the University of Louisville in Kentucky.

Where can I have the CO2RE Intima treatment done?
CO2RE Intima is a quick, simple and safe procedure that can be done in your physician’s office. The procedure is typically performed by an obstetrician/gynecologist, plastic surgeon, dermatologist or laser specialist.

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.

How many treatments does it take?
Patients receive three in-office treatments that are spaced ~3 weeks apart.

When will I see results?
Most CO2RE Intima patients feel and see improvement after the very first treatment, although the procedure calls for three treatments.

How long does it last?
After the third treatment, patients should expect to come back annually for a maintenance treatment.

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.

Is the CO2RE Intima treatment right for me?
The CO2RE Intima is appropriate for females, who are experiencing a change in their gynecologic wellness, or who want to improve their genital appearance. Speak to your physician to see if CO2RE Intima is right for you.

Is this procedure safe for women with breast cancer?
As with any medical condition, you should discuss possible risks of treatment with your physician.

Will the procedure be covered by insurance?
The CO2RE Intima treatments are currently not covered by managed care as no processing code has been
