If you have or think you have Lichen Sclerosus, then please do not suffer in silence. Dr Shirin is aware of the impact this can have you on daily life and has been an advocate for many years in improving Women’s Health. Please get in touch if you wish to discuss any concerns you may have.
What Is Lichen Sclerosus Treatment?
Lichen Sclerosus (LS) is a long term skin condition which usually affects the skin of the genitals which can result in itching, burning, pain and scarring. Appearing in both men and women, it can be a life affecting condition, which distresses sufferers as it can cause both itching around the genitals, and also manifests as white patches in the area. These symptoms can damage confidence, and affect the quality of life for those who suffer with the symptoms of LS.
However, Elite Aesthetics are now able to offer those who suffer with Lichen Sclerosus a long term solution that is administered in just one treatment.
How Does The Lichen Sclerosus Treatment Work?
The O-Shot for women and the P-Shot for men offer significant improvement in the symptoms of LS, reducing the need to take topical treatments in many cases.
The O-Shot and the P-Shot use the body’s own platelet rich plasma (PRP) to help to heal the area, reducing the need for treatments such as topical steroid creams and helping in cases that are resistant to steroids.
Get in touch with Elite Aesthetics today, to find out how we are revolutionising treatment of lichen sclerosus in the UK, with the O-Shot and P-Shot.
What Causes Lichen Sclerosus?
Although it’s not actually clear what causes lichen sclerosus, the medical professional understand that it is likely to be related to over activity within the immune system. While it is not an infection, and therefore not contagious, it does cause those who suffer with LS much discomfort, and for some, embarrassment. Lichen Sclerosis is usually a long term condition, and current treatments are usually steroid creams which generally just control symptoms, rather than treat the cause.
However, new studies show that the use of PRP injections, such as the O-Shot and the P-Shot have had some great results with those who have taken part no longer needing to take topical creams, and symptoms greatly reducing. Injection of PRP into the affected areas has been reported to result in the regeneration of normal skin.
