Lichen Sclerosus Treatment - using PRP

Treatment of Lichen Sclerosus with PRP for improved comfort and appearance of intimate areas.

Lichen sclerosus is a skin condition that makes patches of skin look white, thickened and crinkly. It most often affects the skin around the vulva or anus. It can be itchy, painful and cause permanent scarring.

Lichen sclerosus affects around one in 80 women. It can happen at any age but is most common in middle-aged and elderly women. For most women, it is a lifelong condition. Four per cent of women with this condition go on to develop vulvar cancer.

We use PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Injections to treat Lichen Sclerosus.

As the treatment involves the use of your own blood and blood products, there are minimal to no side effects.

PRP is a very safe and effective treatment. Because we are using your own blood, there is no risk of a reaction to the injection. As there are needles and injections involved, there is a possibility of some bruising and swelling.

Benefits

Removal of Lichen sclerosus using PRP means there is no risk of reaction to the treatment and can reduce or eliminate this potentially lifelong condition.

Treatment guide

We take approx 10ml of your blood (per vial) and spin it around in a centrifuge. We do this to separate the unwanted red and white blood cells from the plasma, which contains the platelets and growth factors. It is this plasma that we will then inject into the affected tissue. We do 3 treatments, 4 weeks apart, and then again at 12 months.

We apply a topical anesthetic gel to the treatment area, which makes the treatment quite comfortable. Some people might still feel a little bit of a pinch during treatment and may experience a very mild pulsating sensation after the treatment has been done. This lasts for a very short period of time.

Pricing guide

The cost will depend on how extensive the area is that requires treatment. The larger the area, the more vials of blood we will need to take to ensure there is enough plasma to cover the area to be treated.

Pricing starts at $450 per treatment for 1 vial. Most people will require 1-2 vials per treatment.

Considerations

The treated area may feel a bit tender and be a bit bruised for a day or so after treatment, but there are no restrictions on what you can or can’t do. You would base activities on your level of comfort.
