WHAT IS CO2RE® Intima?

The CO2RE system is a simple, efficient, energy-based solution that can treat many gynecological skin concerns without any hormones.

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.
