Recent advancements in laser treatment technology have provid- ed Dr. Groysman the opportunity to offer laser vaginal rejuvena- tion as a non-invasive and non-surgical option for a broad array of women’s health issues. The CO2RE laser and CO2RE Intima harnesses the same C02 laser technology safely used for years to rejuvenate the skin of the face to now offer intimate women’s
rejuvenation. CO2RE Intima offers a quick, simple and safe procedure that can be done right in our office. The procedure is virtually painless, requires no anesthesia when performed intra- vaginaly and has almost no downtime. The advantage of CO2RE laser lies in its ability to treat both vaginal as well as external genital skin. The procedure typically takes around 15 minutes to treat both internally and externally.
CO2RE Intima is a medical laser that delivers controlled energy to the vaginal or vulva tissue – so cells make more collagen – improving skin tone, texture and appearance. The delivery of this laser energy to the vaginal wall stimulates a healing response that builds new healthy tissue and addresses a variety of women’s health issues such as:
• Dryness, itching, pain and painful intercourse
• Pigmentation, dystrophy and laxity
• Restoring Vulva and Vaginal tone, flexibility and shape • Incontinence
• Enhancement of Sexual Relationship
The process of treatment begins with a consultation, where Dr. Groysman will assess concerns, address symptoms, and will determine best course of action and treatment. Now with CO2RE Intima, we can offer our female patients the ability to regain their intimate wellness in a non-surgical, proven treatment under the care of a trained dermatologist who specializes in Women’s health.
