WHAT IS LICHEN SCLEROSIS?

Lichen sclerosis is a debilitating autoimmune condition affecting the labia, vagina, and anogenital region in approximately 1.7% of women. The standard of care is to apply high-dose steroid creams, but this procedure often yields a poor outcome. At Nouveau Medspas, we strive to remain at the forefront of women’s health. As such, we employ the MonaLisa Touch® in combination with Platelet Rich Plasma  therapy to treat this debilitating disease. To date we have had phenomenal results even on some very challenging cases.  Schedule your appointment in Gig Harbor, WA today to learn more.

WHAT CAUSES LICHEN SCLEROSIS?

The cause of lichen sclerosis is not currently known. However, it is theorized that an overactive immune system or an imbalance of hormones likely plays a primary role. This would explain why women who are postmenopausal are at a higher risk of developing the disease. Fortunately, lichen sclerosis isn’t contagious and cannot be spread through sexual intercourse. In women, this disease usually involves the vagina, labia minora and majora, groin, and anus.

TREATMENT OPTIONS

When it comes to treatment, platelet-rich plasma is an effective treatment  for lichen sclerosis. We have seen many patients reach  a 50- 70 % reduction in symptoms in just 2 months .  PRP promotes healing  and regeneration which  leads to a marked decrease in  symptoms. Many patients are able to stop using steroid creams completely which is generally not achieved with the standard current therapy alone.  At Nouveau Medspas we combine PRP injections with the MonaLisa Touch® and have seen a marked improvement in our patients’ symptoms in as little as two weeks.* If you’re struggling with this disease, don’t wait!
