Are Intima treatments painful?

Doctor Answers 5

CORE Intima is a well tolerated procedure.

You are not alone to ask this question... Is Intima CORE laser painful? Many of my patients inquire this during the consultation. Speaking practical as well as personal experience of Intima, the part of internal vaginal treatment is not painful, its very similar to a gyn exam-like experience. For external vaginal and genital area, its is hot and uncomfortable and numbing cream prior to treatment is highly recommended. BTW if the plan is to treat urinary stress incontinence, treatment of the peri-urethral area, which is external part of the treatment is advisable. So prepare with necessary numbing cream which physician should provide prior to the treatment. Good luck! Dr. B

Are Intima treatments painful?

Thank you for your question.  The in-office procedure is virtually painless, requires no anesthesia and typically takes around 15 minutes to treat both internally and externally.

Intima treatment can be done with numbing cream

Hi.  The inside of the vagina is not painful.  However if the treatment is being done for vaginal atrophy, the opening may be narrow.  In this case, the numbing cream really helps to enter the vaginal canal.  Once the treatment is initiated, the treatment is very well tolerated.

Hello,

there is no discomfort with treating the internal genitalia with the device. I will use topical numbing cream however to treat the external genitalia.
