Genital CO2 Laser

  • Genital fractional CO2 laser: it is a laser that has a specific vaginal hand piece and a program with some parameters indicated for vaginal rejuvenation treatment. The gynecological hand piece has a scanner inside the vaginal canal allowing the laser to act directly on the vaginal and / or urethral mucosa.
  • Monopolar genital radiofrequency with a thin probe that is inserted into the vagina and also externally in the major and minor labia and heated in a controlled way above 40ºC and this heat is maintained for 15-20 minutes.

The specialist chooses between these two technologies (laser and radiofrequency) the most suitable for the vaginal rejuvenation of the patient.

With both technologies there is a contraction of the vaginal mucosa and / or the immediate urethra. Thanks to its biostimulation effect on the mucosa and the subepithelial chorion generates new collagen with a wall of the vagina and the more contracted urethra. Additionally, the mucosa has more layers of cells and with more glycogen in its interior, that is, a mucosa healthier and renewed.
