Women are faced with feminine health challenges as a normal part of the aging process. Of course, no matter how ‘normal’ that label may be, they are unwelcome in most instances. A combination of CO2 Fractional laser and the Auto Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation (ALVR) handpiece delivers treatments to help treat conditions such as vaginal dryness, urinary incontinence, laxity, and lack of sensation during sexual intercourse. With just a few sessions, patients will feel more comfortable and confident, both in and out of the bedroom.

Who Cannot Be Treated With Bella Donna CO2?
Clients who cannot be treated include those who have cardiac pacemakers, internal defibrillators, tumors and metallic implants (including joint replacements) in the target area. Additionally, clients who are pregnant may not undergo this procedure.
What Do I Need To Do Before A Treatment?
No special preparation is necessary prior to treatment, with the exception of removing any jewelry or body piercings in the area(s) to be treated.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
During your consultation, we will discuss the number of treatments you will need based on your concerns and health history. Typically, patients find optimal results occur with 2 or 3 treatments.
Can I Return To Normal Activities After Treatment?
Yes, the procedure is non-invasive, so you should be able to return to normal activities, immediately. Typically, there is no downtime after the treatment although some patients may experience mild discomfort for a few hours. In most instances, clients go back to work (or simply on with their days) immediately after their sessions. However, vaginal intercourse must be avoided for three to five days.
When Will I Notice Results?
The average client notices improvements approximately three to five days after their session. With each following session, results tend to become more easily detected.
Does This Treatment Cause Scarring?
The Bella Donna CO2 laser does not create incisions, therefore there is no risk of internal or external scarring with this treatment. This lack of invasive surgical methods is just one of the many reasons we recommend this treatment to our clients.
How Does The Treatment Work?
This treatment uses a specialized laser wand, which is placed into the vaginal cavity. During the treatment, the laser beam specifically targets the tissues that produce collagen. Thermal heating will cause the vaginal walls to tighten, resulting in a smaller vaginal canal. This tightening also reaches the edge of the bladder, which helps with urinary incontinence. Clients report that the laser treatment is relatively painless and much more comfortable than receiving a PAP smear. It is similar in sensation to a transvaginal ultrasound, and most clients describe feeling only a slight warmth. In addition, no downtime or anesthesia are required with this treatment.
