CORE Intima Vaginal Rejuvenation in Louisville

Who is a candidate for CORE Intima?

Good candidates for CORE Intima include women who are noticing symptoms associated with their vaginal health that have a physical or emotional impact on their lifestyle. Age and childbirth are both causes of these symptoms, which can include vaginal atrophy, dryness, itching, pain during sexual intercourse, vaginal laxity, and stress urinary incontinence.

Intended Results

CORE Intima is a vaginal laser that addresses vaginal health related conditions by encouraging the restoration of the vaginal mucous epithelium layer. This helps to treat vaginal atrophy, dryness, itching, pain, vaginal laxity and stress urinary incontinence.

Procedure Description

CORE Intima treatments are quick, only taking a couple of minutes per treatment, and no anesthesia is needed. The fractional CO2 laser handpiece will be applied along the vaginal wall, gently ablating and coagulating the vaginal lining. Four treatments one month apart are recommended for optimal results.

Recuperation and Healing

There is no special post-procedure care required after a CORE Intima treatment, so patients can return to their everyday activities immediately. It is recommended to abstain from sexual intercourse for one week.


The exact risks and the suitability of this procedure for a given individual can only be decided during consultation. All procedures have some amount of risk, and minor complications occur intermittently. Serious complications are unusual.
