What is CO2RE Intima

The CO2RE Intima system is uniquely engineered to transform treatment of many gynecological conditions.


The CO2RE Intima’s comprehensive range of treatment options1 include:

  • Conization of the cervix such as vulvar and vaginal intraepithelial neoplasia (VIN, VAIN)
  • Condyloma acuminate
  • Leukoplakia (vulvar dystrophies)
  • Herpes vaporization
  • Urethral caruncle vaporization
  • Cervical dysplasia
  • Benign and malignant tumors
  • Erythroplasia
How it works

Well-established CO2 technology for gynecological conditions.


CO2 technology has been used in gynecology for benign and pre-malignant vulvar and cervical dysplasia since 1973.3 The CO2RE system offers customizable treatment capability with handpiece and lens combinations to provide physician control. Compared to traditional surgical methods, it provides greater precision, cleaner incision, and less scarring.4

Performance and Features

The system’s customized handpieces are designed to treat the introitus, vaginal canal, and external genitalia.


  • Conveniently treat with pre-set or individualized treatment options
  • Accurately target and treat tissue with ergonomic, pen-like precision2

Significant benefits for your practice and patients.


  • Efficient procedural time — as little as 10 minutes for each treatment
  • Minimally invasive, energy-based treatment
  • Portable system allows you to easily perform office-based procedures, and is easy to move from room to room
  • Simple in-office setup for gynecological applications
  • Single-use handpiece optimizes workflow, enhancing patient safety
  • Financial savings — single-use handpieces reduce staff time, administrative costs, and inefficiencies

Designed with your practice in mind.


The CO2RE Intima system offers numerous user-friendly, productivity-enhancing features.

  • Minimize physician fatigue with articulated arm and featherweight handpieces
  • Gynecology-specific selection of handpieces and lenses
  • Intuitive touch-screen interface stores and recalls user preferences
