Lichen Planus 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 Planus.
What is Lichen Planus?
Lichen Planus is an inflammatory condition that can cause bumps and/or sores on skin in your vaginal and vulva. In very severe cases, Lichen planus can cause scarring which may change the structure of the vagina and vulva entirely. The labia may appear flatter and the clitoris can become obstructed by the clitoral hood, the opening of the vagina can also become tighter and in some cases fuse together.
For most women Lichen Planus is seen as a life-long condition which can result in a loss of sexual function and have a serious impact on a woman’s quality of life.
What are the symptoms of Lichen Planus?
Symptoms of Lichen Planus include:
- Vaginal itching
- Pain or burning around the vulva and/or vagina
- Reddish brown patches on the inner part of the vulva

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.”
