Vaginal Laxity, Dryness, & Urinary Stress Incontinence
Childbirth and aging can have unwanted effects on a woman’s most intimate areas. For women looking to improve their vaginal wellbeing, we offer CO2RE® Intima, a CO2 laser for vaginal tightening and rejuvenation. This CO2 laser energy delivered to the surface tissues stimulates fibroblast cells to produce new collagen and elastin promoting increased blood flow and better function.
Your Treatment Options
For vaginal laxity, dryness and painful intercourse, and urinary stress incontinence, we offer either the CO2RE Intima fractionated laser platform or platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy for nonsurgical outpatient vaginal rejuvenation. Dr. Johnson and our team will evaluate your medical history, your concerns, and your goals at a consultation to help you determine if one of these treatments will benefit you and is safe for you.
CO2RE Intima: This fractionated laser gently heats up the vaginal wall and vulva tissue, by using the body’s natural healing response to improve function and appearance. This has a positive effect on several major consequences of childbirth and aging.
PRP Therapy: Sometimes called the “O shot,” platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy uses the powerful growth factors contained in your blood’s platelets to promote the regeneration and thickening of vaginal tissue. PRP therapy can help restore sensation during sexual intercourse that many women lose after giving birth vaginally or after going through menopause.
Vaginal and Vulvar Tissue Laxity
For women looking to reclaim their confidence and improve sexual function, and also create a more youthful external appearance, Vaginal Rejuvenation via the CO2RE Intima laser can restore the vaginal tightness and tone that childbirth and aging may have taken away. External skin laxity can also be rejuvenated.
Vaginal Dryness and Painful Intercourse
Menopause and hormonal changes associated with low estrogen levels can contribute to atrophy and thinning of vaginal wall tissues. This can result in difficulties with vaginal pH, urinary tract infections, and loss of moisture-producing cells, creating irritation and making sexual intercourse painful. The CO2RE Intima laser restores vaginal health by revitalizing the lining of the vagina and improving sexual function.
Urinary Stress Incontinence
Childbirth and aging can occasionally create a loss of tone, resulting in urinary incontinence — which usually happens at the most inconvenient times and places. Much more common than you think, incontinence can interfere with active women’s lives in many unforeseen ways: It can occur while lifting, sneezing, working out at the gym, or playing with your children. If you’ve been doing Kegel exercises for years with no improvement, you might want to consider CO2RE Intima for treatment of urinary incontinence.Back to Top
