CO2RE Treatments Sunset Beach, CA

CO2RE Intima is a laser therapy device specially designed for the treatment of gynecological conditions. It allows our skilled practitioners to perform non-surgical and minimally invasive vaginal rejuvenation procedures to renew sexual wellness. 

Growing older, childbirth, menopause, and other factors can lead to undesirable gynecological conditions that cause discomfort and embarrassment. Vaginal atrophy, also known as atrophic vaginitis, is a common condition characterized by the thinning, drying, and inflammation of the vaginal walls due to a decrease in estrogen levels. This can lead to various uncomfortable symptoms such as vaginal dryness, itching, burning, painful intercourse, and an increased risk of urinary tract infections. Genitourinary syndrome of menopause (GSM) encompasses these symptoms along with other urinary issues, affecting many women during and after menopause. Vaginal rejuvenation treatment with the CO2RE Intima can address these issues and more.

The skilled practitioners at DermFX offer vaginal wellness treatments with the CO2RE intima system for patients in Southern California. For more information, visit our contact page or call one of our five Southern California locations! 

About CO2RE

Laser therapy with the CO2RE Intima for vaginal rejuvenation is a safe and easy procedure. It involves the precise application of CO2 energy on both the inner and outer parts of the vagina. The CO2 energy creates a controlled injury on the outermost layer of the skin and stimulates healing processes in the deeper layers. This leads to the production of new collagen, a protein that is an essential building block of healthy skin. (1) As the skin heals, the new collagen repairs damaged skin cells and encourages the production of new, healthy skin. Cosmetically, it can improve the texture, skin tone, and overall appearance of the vagina. It can also make the vagina healthier, addressing issues of elasticity, dryness, and bladder leakage. (2) In this way, the CO2RE Intima can turn back the clock on your sexual wellness.  

CO2RE for Skin Rejuvenation

The CO2RE system can also be used for skin rejuvenation and full-face resurfacing. With its light, deep, and fusion modes, it utilizes fractional resurfacing technology to target specific areas of the skin, promoting collagen production and enhancing overall skin texture. By creating micro-injuries, the laser stimulates the body’s natural healing process, resulting in smoother, firmer skin, and effective treatment of:

  • Sun Damage
  • Age Spots
  • Laxity
  • Dull/Uneven Skin Tone
  • Fine Lines & Wrinkles
  • Acne Scars

Who is a Candidate for CO2RE?

Patients often seek CO2RE to combat issues like genitourinary syndrome, collagen production decline, or skin resurfacing needs. This treatment is not limited by age, as suitability is determined more by one’s health status rather than chronological age. Whether you are experiencing muscle laxity, discomfort, or aesthetic changes in the genital area, a consultation at DermFX can help assess if CO2RE Intima is the right solution for your unique concerns.

Personal Consultation

At your personal consultation, we can help you understand exactly what vaginal rejuvenation with CO2RE entails, and everything you can expect from the treatment. If you have any questions or concerns, we will explain the particulars of this innovative therapy. We will want to learn about your medical history, to make sure that laser treatment is a safe option for you. We would like to know any past or present conditions that you have experienced and any prescriptions that you are currently taking. 

To schedule your consultation, fill out this form or get in touch with your nearest location below.


To help you prepare for CO2RE treatment, we will give you personalized instructions. These will include tips to make your procedure easier and more beneficial, and precautions to avoid discomfort and complications. Depending on your medical history, we may prescribe an antiviral medication to avoid its recurrence after treatment. If you smoke or use nicotine products, you should quit for two weeks before your first appointment and throughout the treatment process. The effects of nicotine can affect your ability to heal, which could diminish the results of your vaginal rejuvenation treatment. 

CO2RE Procedure

The CO2RE Intima procedure is remarkably easy. Each treatment session takes about ten to fifteen minutes to complete. You do not need to receive anesthesia, though we will administer a numbing agent to the area to prevent any potential discomfort. One of our skilled practitioners will use the CO2RE Intima device to meticulously target the areas of your vagina that need rejuvenation, leaving the surrounding areas untouched. When the procedure is complete, you can leave our office and go on about your day. 


CO2RE Treatments Sunset Beach, CA

As you begin to heal, you may feel some increased sensitivity and swelling in the treatment area. Over-the-counter pain medication should be enough to alleviate these symptoms. Applying a cool compress will help to soothe the area and reduce swelling. Try to avoid any rough contact or scratching that may worsen your symptoms. You should refrain from sexual intercourse for a week after your treatment, or until you feel comfortable. The majority of the healing process should be completed one to two weeks after your procedure. 


Most patients require three CO2RE Intima sessions to achieve satisfactory results. Because laser resurfacing works through a natural healing process, your results will reveal themselves gradually. When your treatment area begins to heal, you will notice a refreshed appearance and revitalized feel and function. The results of your CO2RE treatment will be long-lasting, providing renewed sexual health for several years. You may need maintenance treatments around once a year for the best results. 

Corresponding & Complementary Procedures 

Here at DermFX, we offer additional procedures that can complement your vaginal rejuvenation with CO2RE. 


Emsella is a non-invasive treatment for urinary incontinence (UI). Patients sit comfortably as the device emits high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy (HIFEM) to the pelvis. This stimulates muscles deep within the pelvic floor, engaging them and making them stronger. This procedure strengthens neuromuscular control, giving patients renewed trust in their bodies. If you suffer from bladder leakage, Emsella treatment could be a welcome addition to your intimate wellness treatments. 

Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is a cosmetic treatment that can remove unwanted hair and prevent further growth at the same time. It involves the application of targeted laser energy to the skin, which destroys hair follicles at the foundation. This procedure can tidy up the bikini line as well as provide full Brazilian-style hair removal.

Is CO2RE laser resurfacing safe?

Laser resurfacing with the CO2RE device is safe. Potential complications could arise if you have any pre-existing skin conditions or other compromising medical conditions, so be sure to mention those at your consultation. 

How many CO2RE treatment sessions will I need?

It is possible to see the results you desire after one session. However, most patients require three sessions to achieve optimal vaginal rejuvenation. These sessions are typically spaced three to four weeks apart, to allow the treatment area to heal between laser treatments. 

When can I have sex after CO2RE treatment?

We recommend waiting one week before you have sexual intercourse after your CO2RE treatment. Premature sexual contact could cause damage to your healing skin or increase your discomfort. 

How long will my CO2RE results last?

Your results should last for years. When the CO2 laser energy stimulates new collagen growth, this is not a one-time instance. New collagen will continue to grow in your treatment area for some time after your procedure.
