vs Intima

Learn everything you need to know about Monalisa Touch and all other vaginal rejuvenation deviced available on the market.

CO2RE Intima Vs Monalisa Touch

Various vaginal treatments have been developed since the late 1990s, but two technologies are the front-runners: Carbon dioxide (CO2) Lasers, and Radio Frequency (RF) treatments.

Monalisa Touch & Intima can be effective for tightening the vaginal tissues; however, each technique works differently and, as a result, produces slightly varying outcomes.

Treatments are commonly used to treat postmenopausal vulvovaginal symptoms (i.e. dryness, burning, itching), stress urinary incontinence, sexual dysfunction, discomfort, vaginal laxity, and labial appearance.

C02 Laser Treatments

Let’s be honest, the thought of getting laser treatments on the most sensitive and intimate part of your body might make you reflexively cross your legs,but maybe it’s time you should consider it, especially if you have been a silent sufferer of some vaginal issues.

CO2 Laser Treatments such as Monalisa Touch and CO2RE Intima Laser are the latest innovation in treating female-driven problems without excessive downtime required and are majorly pain-free.

Apart from being a well-loved tool used by Cosmetology experts, many gynecologists use CO2 Lasers to treat multiple medical conditions.

Some might even say that, theoretically, CO2 lasers could even someday replace topical estrogen, which is currently the most popular method of intervention but unlike CO2 lasers, does not offer long-term benefits.

Monalisa Touch Treatment

This method is targeted towards internal vaginal rejuvenation only and does not help with the outer appearance at all.

The process delivers fractional CO2 laser energy to soft tissues and is performed in an office environment typically without the need for anesthesia. Patients opting for this method should expect 1-3 days’ downtime and restricted to no sexual activity, right after the treatment.

Results usually only last 30-60 days but vary person to person.

Like with all laser use, you should expect insignificant swelling, itching or general irritation around the site.


All the benefits of Monalisa Touch are internal only.

  • Restores tightness and functionality of the vaginal area.
  • Treats a wide range of issues and medical conditions caused by weakened vaginal tissues.

Treatment Process :

  • Three total procedures
  • Spanned throughout 18 weeks
  • 5-10 minutes per procedure.
  • In-office.
  • No anesthesia required.


CO2RE Intima procedures use a type of C02 laser, much like the name suggests, to trigger your bodies natural process to combat various issues caused by menopause or other medical conditions.

The laser energy helps the body produce collagen, which in turn tightens and tones vaginal tissues without the use of unpredictable external hormones.

The only other option to help you with estrogen production is topical estrogen application which is losing its popularity due to their cumbersome nature and need for constant re-application.

Most CO2RE Intima patients feel and see improvement after the very first treatment, although the procedure calls for three treatments.


Vaginal rejuvenation from CO2RE Intima offers a variety of potential benefits for you. The increased production of collagen could help:

  • Improves sexual pleasure
  • Reduces mild stress urinary incontinence
  • Reduces vaginal laxity and dryness
  • Improves the vaginal cosmetic appearance

C02RE Intima also helps with stress incontinence

Treatment Process:

  • Three treatments in total.
  • Fifteen minutes to treat both internally and externally.
  • In-office.
  • No anesthesia required.

Difference Between CO2RE Intima and Monalisa Touch

CO2RE Intima is a module of the CO2RE device which treats all three areas of a woman’s intimate parts. The external, internal and introitus while Monalisa Touch is ideal for internal use only.

CO2 technology also provides physicians with the ability to treat both superficial and deep skin layers simultaneously and with the precision control they need over the intensity, pattern and depth of ablation, which is very important for treatments to this intimate area.

Monalisa Touch does not reach significant depth and provides only superficial improvements, the approximate level of depth can be compared to being as deep as two pages of paper.

Which One is Right for You?

At Sparkle, we believe that CO2RE Intima is the more superior, advanced and modern way of dealing with Vaginal Rejuvenation and atrophy.

This procedure is performed by a certified OBGYNand we are the first Medispas to offer this service in Canada. The treatment uses a sterile, single-use handpiece, thereby assuring women of the results and hygiene they expect for treatments to their most intimate area.

The procedure is an ideal treatment for women who don’t want to undergo hormone replacement therapy or major surgery.

CO2RE Intima treatment is performe in the comfort of our office as a non-surgical outpatient procedure that does not require anesthetic or excessive downtime while also being relatively pain-free.

Sparkle Lifestyle & MediSpa is the first and only Medical Aesthetic clinic in Atlantic Canada to offer CO2 laser for vaginal rejuvenation and the only in Canada to offer CO2RE Intima.

The CO2 laser is the best technology on the market for vaginal rejuvenation and we are proud to be offering CO2RE Intima, a leader in the industry.


Radiofrequency (RF)-based vaginal rejuvenation, such as ThermiVa, uses a probe– Yes, A PROBE- like Aliens Vs. Predators. It has the same diameter as one of your fingers and delivers thermal (electrical) energy to heat the lining and outside of the vagina.

The method helps tone and tighten the skin both inside and outside while also improving lubrication and sensitivity in the area.

If you do suffer from sensitive skin, the overall thermic effect of the process might become painful, if not uncomfortable to handle.

Also, take all the reviews regarding ThermiVa with a pinch of salt since the process was first popularized by one Kardashian or another! Clients should know that the procedure has become more of a fad rather than a therapeutic procedure.

The Core Intima treatment is 100% worth it. After having children, I struggled a bit with stress incontinence. I certainly didn’t want surgery, so the vaginal rejuvenation procedure sounded like a good alternative. After just the first treatment, I noticed a big difference in my bladder control, as well as lubrication! My husband says that feel tighter and way more lubricated than I ever have been – even before kids! The procedure was quick, and the downtime is minimal. So worth it!


This is absolutely worth every penny. It’s like being a teenage girl all over again. There is a small amount of pain but that’s what the numbing cream is for. I’ve done 2 of 3 and am so much more confident now that I’m rejuvenated


I had great results even better than what I thought I would have. My husband can feel the difference. Tighter and much moister. I had a lot of dryness before and now it feels so moist. I would recommend this treatment to any women that have a problem with dryness and wants it to feel tighter.
