Throughout their lives, women can experience changes in vaginal wellness or appearance, resulting in symptoms that can affect their quality of life. Childbirth and aging can contribute to loss of vaginal sensation and tone. We understand how important it is to feel comfortable and confident with the most intimate parts of your body, and offer non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation treatments.
At Simply Smooth Laser Center, we are proud to offer CO2RE Intima, a new, non-surgical laser treatment that can revitalize the vagina, improving both appearance and sensation.

Over time, the vaginal wall and the entrance to the vaginal canal can stretch, losing tone and elasticity. As estrogen levels decrease with menopause, vaginal tissue can become thin and dry, and the vulva can become saggy. Painful intercourse and burning and itching in the genital area are common concerns for many women. CO2RE Intima helps women relieve the signs of aging, childbirth, or symptoms of menopause, and can also enhance sexual functioning for an improved intimate experience.
How Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation Works
CO2RE Intima delivers controlled laser energy to the vaginal or vulva tissue to stimulate collagen production for improved tone, texture and appearance. CO2RE Intima treatments can remodel collagen, which helps to restore the flexibility and shape of vaginal tissue and enhances moisture levels for better lubrication.
Quick, Painless Results
CO2RE Intima is a quick, simple and safe procedure that can be comfortably done in our Simply Smooth Laser Center. The virtually painless laser treatment typically takes about 15 minutes and requires no downtime, so you can resume all your normal activities after your procedure. However, you should avoid sexual activity for about a week after your CO2RE Intima treatment. Many women experience improvement after their first CO2RE Intima treatment, although 3 treatments spaced about 4 weeks apart can offer the best results.

CO2RE Intima may be an ideal non-surgical treatment option for women who want to:
- Relieve signs of childbirth and aging
