Treatment for Pathological Vulvar Dystrophy
Once a patient has been diagnosed with vulvar dystrophy, a treatment plan is implanted. This may require a long-term plan to reduce discomfort, creams and ointments can be applied to the area, and medications can be taken in the evening to reduce itchiness at night. Patients are advised use unscented products such as soaps, toilet paper, bubble bath, laundry detergent and fabric softener.
Stem cell derived treatment:
Recent studies have bought innovative methods to treat Lichen Sclerosis such as stem cell therapy using Adipose-derived Stem Cells (ADSCs). A recent study concluded stem cell therapy using ADSDs injection represents an alternative therapy to vulvar dystrophies with significant symptoms improvement compared to other treatment modalities.
How does it work?
SVF therapy is the process of isolating adult stem cells from the host tissue. This tissue is then reintroduced to the area of the body that needs healing or regeneration, in this case the vulvar tissue and the vagina.
Local anesthetic is required to minimize any pain and discomfort, a limited amount of fat stores is removed. Once the fat is purified, it is then re-injected into the genital area. Recovery is short with extra-care taken with personal hygiene in the area.
