What CO2RE Intima Laser Does

Here’s how the CO2RE Intima laser treatment can help.

  1. Your physician will use the CO2RE system to deliver laser energy to a targeted area of the skin, including along the vaginal wall. 
  2. This delivery of energy stimulates a healing response and results in remodeling of the soft tissue fibers. 
  3. New fiber and collagen form to revitalize the skin.
