CO2 Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation

What is CO2 Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation?

CO2 Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation is a non-surgical procedure that uses laser energy pulses to rejuvenate the vaginal area by stimulating new collagen production. Vaginal tissues become healthier, firmer, and tauter while the natural lubrication is restored and blood flows more easily to the area, all as a result of the treatment.

How is CO2 Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation intended to be used?

CO2 Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation is intended for addressing a range of age-related vaginal concerns such as vaginal dryness, itching, incontinence, and a loss of satisfaction with intercourse. Many patients who undergo this treatment are either perimenopausal or postmenopausal. Despite the versatility of this treatment, it is essential for individuals considering this procedure to consult with a healthcare provider to discuss its suitability and potential contraindications.

How does CO2 Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation work?

What are the typical treatment areas?

The treatment area for CO2 Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation is the vaginal region.

How Does CO2 Laser Compare to Other Vaginal Treatments?

While CO2 Laser relies on light-based laser energy, vaginal rejuvenation treatments like TempSure Vitalia and Votiva use radiofrequency energy to achieve a similar rejuvenating effect. Radiofrequency-based treatments often have subtle heating that the patient can usually feel during treatment. Although the technology behind radiofrequency treatments is different from the CO2 Laser, they yield similar results and offer a similar treatment experience for the patient. Vitalia and Votiva, for example, also require most patients to schedule a series of two or three sessions for optimal results.

One difference is that Votiva treatments focus more on tightening up loose vaginal tissue, while the CO2 Laser system is more of an all-purpose approach to resolving vaginal dryness and related issues.

Some other benefits that CO2 Laser provides:

  • Customized treatment for the patient’s needs
  • Leads to improved vaginal health
  • Less leakage due to tighter vaginal tissue
  • Takes a minimal amount of time and effort
  • No more itching and burning due vaginal dryness being relieved
  • Improved sexual satisfaction; less painful intercourse b/c of less vaginal dryness
  • Widely and safely used; treatment was cleared by the FDA in 2014.

How many treatments will I need?

In general, no more than a few sessions may be needed, and patients should consult with their healthcare provider to establish the specific number of sessions appropriate for their needs.
