Using Advanced Technology for Laser Treatment
Medical technology continues to advance every year, making procedures easier for doctors to perform and more comfortable for patients to undergo. At Houston Obstetrics & Gynecology, we stay up-to-date on the latest medical technology to give our patients the best care possible. We offer laser treatment at our Houston, TX office to perform vaginal rejuvenation and give our patients improved vaginal wellness. Using a technology called care CO2RE Intima, this non-surgical treatment improves symptoms and cosmetic issues women face due to vaginal childbirth and aging. The procedure can enhance sexual function and give women added confidence to be intimate again.
What makes the CO2RE Intima Treatment Better than Others?
This advanced device treats three different areas in one office trip, focusing on external, internal, and introitus improvement. Sterile, single-use handpieces are used to perform the treatment. Recent results from a hospital-based trial of premenopausal women show positive results and a high patient satisfaction rating for cosmetic enhancement and improved sexual function. The special CO2 laser used in this procedure has been proven to remodel tissue, boosting production of collagen and elastic fibers in atrophic skin. Though most women notice results after the very first treatment, patients will receive three in-office treatments that are three to four weeks apart.
Are There Risks Involved with the Procedure?
The CO2RE laser device has received FDA clearance to be used in a number of gynecological and genitourinary procedures. The treatments are safe and effective with most women reporting mild to no discomfort. The procedure requires little downtime and women can resume their daily activities right away. However, they must refrain from sexual activity for seven days. Be sure you find an experienced healthcare professional like our team to perform any type of laser treatment in Houston, TX.
