In the quest for innovative and effective treatments for gynecological health issues, a recent study sheds light on a groundbreaking approach for managing Lichen Sclerosus (LS) – a condition that, despite its prevalence, remains challenging to treat. The study, conducted by a team of renowned specialists in gynecology and female pelvic medicine, explores the use of bipolar Radiofrequency (RF) with microneedling, offering hope and relief to those affected by this distressing condition.

Lichen Sclerosus: A Persistent Challenge

Lichen Sclerosus is a chronic, progressive, immune-mediated inflammatory disease predominantly affecting the genital skin, causing it to become thin, friable, and hypopigmented. Its symptoms, including intense itching, pain, and skin tearing, severely impact the quality of life of those affected, making effective treatment a necessity rather than a luxury. Traditional treatments, such as high-dose topical steroids, often fail to provide long-term relief, leaving many to endure ongoing discomfort and a diminished quality of life.

A Novel Approach: Bipolar RF with Microneedling

The study introduces a novel therapeutic option: the combination of bipolar RF and microneedling, applied to the vulva, perineum, and perianal regions. This method was evaluated in patients who had previously seen little to no improvement with traditional treatments. Remarkably, the majority of participants reported significant improvements in symptoms, with many experiencing complete resolution.
The treatment protocol consisted of three sessions of bipolar RF with microneedling, spaced four to eight weeks apart. Patient questionnaires revealed a dramatic reduction in LS symptoms, including itching, tissue tearing, changes in tissue appearance and color, and dryness of the skin and mucosa. Astonishingly, 86% of patients reported either significant or complete resolution of symptoms, with a noteworthy 91% reporting significant or complete relief from itching, one of the most severe and persistent symptoms of LS.
