You can’t always see the aging process in action. Time can also result in changes to the most intimate areas. Changes to the vaginal area can lead to dryness, pain and uncomfortable intercourse. You might even find you are frequenting restrooms more or waking up at night when you never did before.
These changes may be a regular part of the aging process for many women, but when those natural changes become uncomfortable, treatment is available. Like the rejuvenation we seek for other areas of our skin and body, we can reverse the effects of time in this area, maintaining our positive form and function. At Morpheus Medical Aesthetics, we offer comfortable, nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation that provides long-lasting relief and enhances your quality of life.
What is Intima and How does it Work?
CO₂RE Intima is a revolutionary laser device that targets vaginal tissue for regeneration after damage caused by childbirth, hormonal fluctuations and the aging process. The laser delivers energy to the labial and vulvar tissues, stimulating the body’s healing response. This treatment can address the following concerns:
- Loose labia that have lost elasticity
- Vaginal itching and dryness
- Mild urinary incontinence
- Painful intercourse
- Loss of sexual enjoyment
- Self-consciousness in your appearance
CO₂RE Intima reverses the toll time takes on your most private function, improving your comfort, appearance and quality of life. As collagen and elastin levels increase, you will both see and feel positive changes that will boost your confidence and allow you to enjoy intimacy with your partner once again.
Who is a Good Candidate for the Intima Treatment?
The CO₂RE Intima might be the right treatment for you if you have noticed unwanted changes to your vaginal area over time. These changes might make you physically uncomfortable or self-conscious about your appearance. Because the procedure does not require anesthesia or incisions, there are few contraindications. If you have a medical condition or are currently taking any medications, we will discuss any potential issues before we perform your treatment.
Although the majority of patients that seek this treatment are in the middle to later years of life, the procedure is appropriate for women of all ages. If you have experienced any of the symptoms above, we would be happy to provide an assessment to determine whether the CO₂RE Intima might be the right treatment for you.
What to Expect During Treatment
CO₂RE Intima treatment is a comfortable process that is performed right in our office. You will relax in a comfortable position as the device is inserted into the vaginal area, where it will deliver gentle heating to the tissue. The applicator can also be used on the external tissue during the same appointment.
Your treatment should not take more than 15 minutes to complete. Since no anesthesia is used, you can return to your daily routine as soon as you leave our office. Few women report any post-treatment discomfort, but if you do experience any soreness in the hours following your session, over-the-counter pain medication should be more than sufficient.
What to Expect After Treatment
The only restriction you will have after your CO₂RE Intima treatment is to avoid intercourse for seven days to give the treatment area ample time to heal fully. Some women notice improvement immediately following their procedure, while others will see the enhancement develop more gradually.
You will need a series of treatments to achieve an optimal outcome. For most women, that involves three treatment sessions, spaced approximately three to four weeks apart. After the third treatment, women typically notice a dramatic improvement in both form and function, which should be long-lasting. We recommend patients come in once a year to maintain their positive results.
How Long does Intima Last?
The improvement you achieve through a series of CO₂RE Intima treatments can last for many months. With annual sessions, your positive results can continue indefinitely. However, since the aging process will continue, you will likely need those yearly treatments to maintain your form and function. Since the procedure is non-invasive, you can easily schedule them in without significant disruption to your routine.
