CO2 laser in gynecological health: Innovation and wellness

Láser Co2

Did you know that laser technology is completely changing the way we address certain gynecological concerns? Yes, that’s right, and among these innovations is the CO2 laser. What is so special about it? Well, let me tell you.

What is CO2 laser?

The gynecological CO2 laser is a new therapeutic option This minimally invasive procedure generates a prolonged thermal effect that facilitates tissue regeneration thanks to the production of collagen and elastic fibers that improve the thickness and quality of the vaginal tissue without causing damage to the surrounding tissues.

During menstruation, estrogens, the main female sex hormone, ensure vaginal health, taking care of maintenance, flexibility, lubrication and proper vaginal functioning.

When women reach menopause, they no longer have estrogen, so their mucous membranes become fragile, inelastic and very sensitive. But this not only happens during menopause, during pregnancy, postpartum, breastfeeding or chemotherapy or radiotherapy treatments, all the organs protected by estrogen, such as the vagina and vulva suffer, so you may experience intimate discomfort such as decreased vaginal lubrication, dryness, itching, burning sensation, discomfort or pain during sexual intercourse… Discomfort that if not treated will increase in intensity over time.

Indications and applications

Genital rejuvenation

The passage of time and events such as childbirth can cause changes in the structure and elasticity of female genital tissues. The CO2 laser helps to counteract these effects, stimulating collagen production and improving the firmness and tone of the vaginal and vulvar skin and mucous membranes. This not only has aesthetic benefits, but can also improve the feeling of comfort and sexual satisfaction.

Genital hyperlaxity

Vaginal laxity is a common concern among women, especially after childbirth or due to the natural aging process. The gynecological laser can be an effective solution to treat this problem, as it strengthens the tissues and increases elasticity, which improves the sensation of tightness and firmness in the vagina.

Urinary incontinence

Urinary incontinence, whether stress, urge or mixed, can be a significant source of discomfort and limitations in a woman’s daily life. This treatment strengthens the pelvic tissues, including the pelvic floor muscles, improving their tone and function. This can reduce episodes of involuntary urine leakage and improve bladder control, providing increased quality of life and well-being.

Condylomas and sebaceous cysts

Skin lesions such as condylomas (genital warts) and sebaceous cysts can cause discomfort and affect the aesthetics of the genital area. By directing the beam of light directly on the lesions, the laser can destroy the affected tissue selectively, without damaging the surrounding tissue, resulting in faster recovery and less discomfort for the patient.

Scars and blemishes

Scars and blemishes on the vulvar skin may be the result of previous episodes of trauma, surgery or skin conditions. The laser can help improve the appearance of scars and blemishes by stimulating cell regeneration and collagen production, leading to more even, smooth and rejuvenated skin.

What does the gynecological laser treatment consist of?

The CO2 laser procedure is a comfortable and quick experience, although there are a few points to keep in mind throughout the treatment:


Prior to the procedure, an initial consultation will be held to assess the patient’s health status and discuss her expectations and goals. During this consultation, the procedure will be explained in detail and all the patient’s questions and concerns will be answered. In some cases, it may be recommended to avoid certain medications or topical products prior to treatment.


The CO2 laser procedure begins with the application of a topical anesthetic cream to the area to be treated. This cream helps minimize any discomfort during the procedure and ensures patient comfort. Once the skin is numb, the CO2 laser is applied using a vaginal probe or a probe specifically for vulvar skin.
During laser application, the patient may experience a sensation of heat or slight discomfort, but in general, the procedure is well tolerated and does not usually cause significant pain.

Duration and frequency of treatment

The entire procedure usually takes about 20 minutes. To achieve optimal results, it is advisable to spread the treatment over three sessions, with a frequency of approximately one session every 45 days. This allows the tissues to repair and regenerate between each session.

Post-treatment and recovery

After the procedure, most patients can return to their normal activities immediately, as they usually do not experience significant discomfort. It may be recommended to avoid the use of tampons, sexual intercourse or activities that may irritate the treated area for a short period of time after the procedure.

Results and recovery. What to expect from the CO2 laser?

As mentioned above, one of the most outstanding advantages of the CO2 laser is the rapid recovery and the visible results in the short term. Patients can resume their work and social activities immediately after the consultation.

The results begin to be noticed approximately one month after the first session, at which time the tissues begin to respond to the laser stimulus. With each additional session, the benefits accrue, providing continuous improvement in the patient’s intimate health and well-being.

In addition, maintaining a good skin care routine and adopting healthy habits, such as a balanced diet and regular exercise, can contribute significantly to maintaining the health and appearance of the treated genital tissues.

If you are looking to rejuvenate genital tissues, treat vaginal laxity, reduce urinary incontinence or improve the appearance of skin lesions such as condylomas and scars, the CO2 laser could be the solution you are looking for.
