CO2 laser vaginal revitalization with the Syneron CO2RE Intima laser may be used for many female pelvic problems and intimacy issues relating to age, childbirth and menopause. The problems it effectively treats are vaginal looseness (vaginal laxity), menopausal dryness (menopausal atrophic vaginitis), pain with sex (dyspareunia), vulvar hyperpigmentation (dark coloration in the pelvic skin), and many bladder issues. Urinary leakage from stress incontinence (leaking with coughing, sneezing, exercise, etc.) improves greatly and these women also do not have to go to the bathroom as frequently. Dr. Van Reken talks with 2 women who have had vaginal revitalization in his clinic. They report better urinary control, more moisture during sex, tighter vaginal canals, relief of menopause dryness, an improved sex life and an improved appearance with revolumization of the vulvar skin. Both reported tolerable amounts of pain during the procedure. Both of their husbands were pleased as well. Patient satisfaction with this procedure is typically high.
