Lichen Sclerosus Lipogems Treatment
Our exclusive Lipogems® treatment uses your own regenerative cells to restore your vaginal health. A single visit offers a solution to a wide range of conditions including Lichen Sclerosus.
What is Lichen Sclerosus?
Lichen Sclerosus is a chronic inflammatory skin condition which can effect any part of the skin but most commonly effects the genital skin (vulva) and the skin around the anus. The condition causes the skin to have a white, shiny appearance which is usually thinned but can often become raised and appear thickened.
What are the symptoms of Lichen Sclerosus?
The most common symptom of vulval Lichen Sclerosus is itching, which may be severe and very sore if the skin breaks down or cracks. If breaking or cracking does occur in the genital area the scar-like healing process can tighten the skin making it uncomfortable to pass urine, stools or have sexual intercourse.
Symptoms of Lichen Sclerosus include:
- Mild to severe itching and soreness
- Skin that appears fragile, pale, and/or white
- Bruised skin with broken blood vessels or “blood blisters”
- Small tears or fissures in the skin
- Scar tissue covering the labia or clitoris
- Bleeding when having bowel movements
- Painful urination (peeing) due to urine flowing over irritated skin

Consultant Gynaecologist, Miss Shohreh Beski explains how Lipogems® can help…
“My special interest is in the menopause as I am one of those ladies who has gone through that and I have seen and felt myself, what problems it brings.
For women at this age, their vagina and vulva can be affected by the decrease of hormones and they can often tell me that they do not wish to have any further sexual intercourse and this is because of the dryness and pain experienced.
The new technique, which I am excited about is our Lipogems® treatment. It has been used for painful joints (orthopaedics) in over 30,000 patients by extracting repair cells or Mesenchymal stem cells and seeing joint pain decrease. We have also seen great benefits for postmenopausal women by restoring vaginal health.
We have seen the significant benefits of their postmenopausal symptoms and also how it worked in other ways which we didn’t expect for example, for urinary stress incontinence.”
