Belcara Health is proud to introduce a new, non-surgical option for improving vaginal health and function.
CO2RE Intima is a non-surgical laser procedure that restores vaginal health and functionality. It is appropriate for women in the peri-menopausal, menopausal and post-menopausal stages of life, as well as for women looking to improve sexual function and confidence related to their vaginal appearance and health.
After childbirth or advanced age, the vaginal walls may become lax and the labia may sag. This can negatively impact a woman’s self-confidence and vaginal performance. Common symptoms for post-menopausal women include burning, itching and dryness of the vaginal region as well as pain during intercourse. Cosmetic changes include increased pigmentation to the skin and sagging of the labia.
- Restores vaginal health, function and appearance
- Reduces “leaking” urinary incontinence
- Tightens vaginal internal walls and external labia
- Reduces itchiness and dryness
- Quick, non-surgical, in-office, no-downtime procedure
The ideal patient for the CO2RE Intima treatment are women who have noticed a change with their vaginal health and satisfaction, in terms of either appearance or function. These changes can occur in women of all ages, but are more common after childbirth and aging.
How it Works
CO2RE Intima uses medical laser technology to deliver light energy to the tissues in and around the vagina. The laser energy stimulates the body’s own healing response to promote increased collagen production. By creating microscopic holes in the treatment tissues, the laser stimulates collagen production. This natural healing response improves the soft tissue tone, texture and appearance in the vaginal canal and over the external vulva. In addition, the laser energy stimulates increased moisture in the vaginal canal, reducing dryness and discomfort during intimate relations.
When treating the external vulva, the CO2RE® Intima uses a single-use, sterile hand piece on the treatment area. The unit is positioned over the targeted soft tissues and delivers a gentle laser energy to the targeted tissue. This results in a remodeling of the labial and vulvar tissues, improving flexibility and shape as well as improving skin pigmentation and tone.
When treating the internal vaginal canal, the CO2RE® Intima uses a tube, attached to a sterile, single use hand piece which is inserted into the vaginal canal. From inside the vagina, the laser energy is delivered to the vaginal wall in a 360 degree manner. The hand piece is positioned at the top of the vagina, delivering the laser energy as it moves lower into the vagina, treating each section until the vaginal opening is reached. The tube is rotated to address each section of the vaginal wall until all parts have been treated. The laser energy stimulates the healing response of the tissues, remodels the soft tissues for improved flexibility and shape, and increases moisture levels within the vaginal canal.
CO2RE Intima is FDA cleared to treat all three areas of a women’s intimate needs (external, internal and introitus). It uses a CO2 laser, which has been proven to remodel tissue, collagen and elastic fibers. This technology treats the superficial and deep skin layers simultaneously, with highly precise control of the intensity, pattern and depth of ablation, which is very important for treatments to this intimate area.
What to Expect
The CO2RE® Intima procedure is quick, safe and virtually painless. The entire treatment takes approximately 15 minutes, with no anesthesia or medication required. Patients can return to normal daily activities immediately.
Sexual activity should be avoided for about 7 days to avoid irritating the treatment area. While most patients notice improvements in their vaginal health after the first treatment, the intended treatment protocol is for three treatment sessions, spaced 3-4 weeks apart. After the third treatment, patients should plan for an annual treatment to maintain results.

“This treatment is excellent. I had two natural deliveries which caused a looseness and incontinence (when sneezing, coughing, jumping, etc.). I noticed an improvement in my ability to retain urine after the first treatment and it improved even more after the second treatment. And, after my second treatment, I started to notice an improvement in sensation during sexual relations. I have told all my girlfriends and the women in my family about this treatment. It was really easy and not at all painful. It’s a really great treatment.”
