Syneron Candela Announces CE Mark for CO2RE® Intima

Tuesday, Mar 28, 2017

Syneron Medical Ltd. (ELOS), a leading global aesthetic device company, today announced that the company secured the CE Mark for CO2RE Intima, making it the first in-office laser procedure now CE marked for the treatment of vaginal atrophy and rejuvenation. CO2RE Intima is a simple non-surgical treatment that promotes vaginal wellness amongst a broad array of women, while delivering a renewed sense of confidence, comfort, quality of life and enhanced sexual functioning. CO2RE Intima relieves the effects of childbirth and aging by stimulating healing responses in the vaginal canal to enhance moisture levels, while also remodeling the tissue fibers in the vaginal and vulvar areas to restore their flexibility and shape. It is also used to address changes and symptoms associated with painful intercourse.

A survey of menopausal women showed that 75% suffered from vaginal dryness, and 90% said it negatively affects their lives. In the same survey, 63% of post childbirth women felt their vagina was looser since giving birth and would consider a non-surgical procedure to tighten their vaginal canal.

"I have previously used other technologies for this type of vaginal treatment, but the CO2 technology of CO2RE Intima is more effective because it provides the type of fractional impact that is most effective on mucosal tissue," says César Arroyo, MD, head of the Medical Laser Unit in HM Monteprincipe Hospital, Madrid, Spain. "Additionally, it can be used to treat multiple areas including the vaginal canal, introitus and vulva."

CO2RE Intima delivers favorable results, with mild to no discomfort and little downtime. In a clinical study, conducted by Dr. Arroyo, at the three-month follow-up after the third treatment, 100% of women reported satisfaction with the treatment and 94% would recommend it to others. Additionally, 82% of the women showed a statistically significant improvement in the vaginal health index (p<0.05). The treatment requires no anesthesia and typically takes around 15 minutes to treat. Most patients feel and see improvement after the very first treatment; however, a series of three treatments, about four weeks apart, is recommended for optimal results.

"We are proud to be the first company to secure the CE Mark for the treatment of vaginal atrophy and rejuvenation," says Amit Meridor, CEO of Syneron Candela. "CO2RE Intima's recent CE Mark demonstrates Syneron Candela's continuing commitment to innovation and leadership in aesthetic medicine, and now in the women's intimate health category."
