Researchers are excited about the results yielded by studies on PRP and lichen sclerosus.
In one study, a group of women whose lichen sclerosus had not been improved by the typical steroid treatment was treated with PRP. Almost all the women in the study showed clinical improvement in the size of their lesions, and in some cases, the lesions disappeared after treatment with PRP. Symptoms disappeared entirely for half of the woman, and most of them did not need to return to steroid treatment following their treatment with PRP. Researchers concluded that PRP is a legitimate potential alternative to steroid treatments for lichen sclerosus and has lasting results.

In another study, women suffering from lichen sclerosus were treated with the PRP using the O-Shot® method. Using before-and-after photographs and biopsies, researchers were able to track marked improvement in the women who received treatment, and the women reported that their symptoms had significantly been alleviated.
Dr. Michael Coyle, of Coyle Institute, is the leading researcher and treatment provider of the new TULIP® procedure. Invented by Dr. Coyle, this single-treatment protocol utilizes the healing benefits of PRP and ProFractional™ laser treatments to treat vulvar lichen sclerosus. With just one revolutionary treatment, patients have reported 100 percent recovery from all lichen sclerosus systems, including healed vulvar skin and tissues.
The perfect option for local and traveling patients, Dr. Coyle recommends a three-day stay in Pensacola, beginning on either Monday or Wednesday. On the first day, patients have a full exam and evaluation and a biopsy, if needed. Within 24 hours, Dr. Coyle then has the information he needs to customize treatment using the unique adjustable depth features of the ProFractional™ laser. On the third day, the patient is treated and is then cleared to return home.
Of course, PRP is a safe treatment that is used in many medical applications, so if a woman has hard-to-treat lichen sclerosus, it is worth learning more about PRP treatment with O-Shot®.
If you are suffering through the pain of lichen sclerosus and are looking for an alternative to ongoing steroidal treatment, Coyle Institute can help.
