The CO2 laser can solve various pathologies, both gynecological and dermatological and aesthetic, in a non-invasive, safe and fast way.


CO2 Laser in Gynecology and Aesthetic Dermatology

In Gynecology , the CO2 laser is used to treat vaginal atrophy , which leads to vaginal dryness, irritation, lack of lubrication and loss of tone. It is also very effective in vaginal relaxation treatments, condylomas and mild to moderate urinary incontinence .

In Aesthetic Dermatology , this laser treatment will serve to remove scars, immature streaks that are still pink or violet (this area must be treated outside the times of great exposure to the sun since the skin should not be exposed and protected with a total sun screen Month before and after laser treatment), skin flaccidity, wrinkles and photoaging .


Advantages of CO2 laser on the skin

The CO2 laser treatment consists of the emission of tiny beams of laser energy that penetrate the skin in the form of small thermal columns up to the dermis. These thermal columns are microscopic zones separated by healthy surrounding tissue, ie they contain cells capable of promoting rapid tissue regeneration and scarring.

On the other hand, the thermal energy that penetrates the deep dermis will stimulate the formation of collagen, improving the quality of the tissues (tone, lubrication of mucous membranes, etc.).

Prior to the treatments it is essential to ensure that there are no pathologies such as dysplasias or infections in the mucosa or skin to treat. Thus, in the gynecological area, a gynecological examination and a cytology and examination of the skin to be treated will be performed previously, with the application during previous weeks of creams that prepare the skin and promote a better response to the laser treatment.
