Lichen sclerosus is an autoimmune reaction that can be present in both young girls and postmenopausal women. It affects the vulvar and perineal areas, creating white patches and leading to thinner, cracked skin. The condition tends to leave a burning, itching sensation that will continue to affect patients until it is treated. These symptoms can be extremely painful, and those affected have complained of difficulty with everyday things such as wearing underwear or pants.
In the past, the treatment for Lichen sclerosus has generally been based in topical steroid creams, but new options have recently emerged. At Charlotte Center for Pelvic Health, we have seen amazing results treating LS with MonaLisa Touch. This treatment uses laser therapy to target the affected areas, encouraging renewed development of healthy vulvar skin. Over the past three years, MonaLisa Touch has restored health to many of our patients, ridding them of the severe irritation and eventually reducing or completely eliminating the need for topical creams.
At our center we customize the treatments to each patient, including the appropriate laser setting as well as the number of treatments. We currently have many LS patient reviews demonstrating their excellent experience at our center. Lichen sclerosus can truly damage a woman’s quality of life, so don’t let it affect yours any longer.
