Lichen Sclerosus is a chronic and progressive skin condition, which is characterized by patches of white and thin skin. It is a disorder that affects both men and women, but it is most common in women, typically presenting itself in the form of a rash on the vulva, anus and penis. It can also occur on other parts of the body, including the inner thighs, breasts and axillae. The condition is thought to be caused by an autoimmune reaction, as the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks the skin. It can cause itching, pain and discomfort, which in some cases can be severe. At The Women’s Health Clinic the Nu-V® non-surgical Lichen Sclerosus treatment is used to improve the health and vitality of vaginal tissue. We use our own Nu-V Carbon Dioxide Fractional Laser (CO2 ) technology that is highly effective in dealing with Lichen Sclerosus.

Lichen Sclerosus

lichen sclerosus is a chronic skin condition that can cause itching, pain and discomfort. It is thought to be the result of an underlying autoimmune disorder or hormonal imbalance, and it is more common in people with certain underlying conditions. Treatment for lichen sclerosus is aimed at reducing inflammation and relieving symptoms, and may include the use of topical steroids or immunosuppressants. It is important to be aware of the triggers and risk factors for the condition, and to take steps to protect the skin from the sun.

What – are the symptoms of Lichen Sclerosus?

Recognizing the symptoms of Lichen Sclerosus is vital for early diagnosis and management. This chronic skin condition primarily affects the genital and anal areas but can appear elsewhere on the body. Common symptoms include:

Itching (Pruritus): Persistent itching is a hallmark symptom of Lichen Sclerosus. The itching can be intense and lead to discomfort.
White Patches: The affected skin typically develops small, white, and shiny patches. These patches may appear smooth or wrinkled.
Thin and Fragile Skin: Over time, Lichen Sclerosus can cause the skin to become thin, delicate, and easily prone to tears or bruising.
Pain or Discomfort: Some individuals with Lichen Sclerosus experience pain, burning sensations, or discomfort, especially during sexual intercourse or urination.

Read more
Inflammation: Inflammation and redness of the affected area may occur, particularly during flare-ups.
Scarring: If left untreated, Lichen Sclerosus can lead to scarring and changes in the anatomy of the affected area, which may affect function.

It’s essential to seek medical evaluation and diagnosis if you experience these symptoms. Early intervention, often through the use of topical corticosteroid creams prescribed by a healthcare provider, can help manage symptoms and prevent complications.

What – are the causes of Lichen Sclerosus?

The exact cause of Lichen Sclerosus is not fully understood, but several factors may contribute to the development of this chronic skin condition. Here are some potential factors associated with Lichen Sclerosus:

Autoimmune Response: Lichen Sclerosus is believed to involve an autoimmune response, where the body’s immune system mistakenly targets and damages healthy skin cells in the affected area.
Hormonal Changes: Hormonal imbalances, especially related to estrogen, may play a role in the development of Lichen Sclerosus. This could explain why the condition is more common in postmenopausal women.
Genetic Predisposition: Some individuals may have a genetic predisposition to Lichen Sclerosus, making them more susceptible to the condition.

Read more
Trauma or Friction: Repeated friction, irritation, or minor trauma to the affected area may trigger or exacerbate Lichen Sclerosus in some cases.
Infections: While not a direct cause, infections or certain microorganisms may contribute to the development of Lichen Sclerosus in susceptible individuals.
Environmental Factors: Environmental factors, such as exposure to certain chemicals or irritants, have been considered as potential contributors in some cases.

It’s important to note that the exact cause can vary from person to person, and Lichen Sclerosus may result from a combination of these factors. While the cause is not always clear, early diagnosis and appropriate treatment can help manage the condition and alleviate symptoms.

If you suspect you have Lichen Sclerosus or have concerns about its potential causes, consult with a healthcare provider for a thorough evaluation and personalized treatment plan.

Emma is the innovator of Nu-V and the founding director of The Womens Health Clinic where the core mantra is “Womens Health Matter”.

The Nu-V Story

Why was Nu-V created? Founding Director and urology nurse Emma explains…

Developed by the Women’s Health Clinic Managing Director, Emma Soos, Nu-V is proud to be the worlds first laser both developed and delivered by nurses.
Nu-V is delivered by specialist women nurses. It uses a uniquely-designed laser probe enclosed within tube to protect both the probe and the skin. Nu-V uses innovative CO2 laser technology to carefully heat & damage the tissue surface safely, contracts existing fibres and helps to stimulate the formation of new collagen. It increases normal blood flow which helps to restore the strength and elasticity of the vaginal tissue as well as improve other vaginal problems like vaginal laxity, tightening, dryness, painful sex, vaginal atrophy, Lichen sclerosis, stress and urinary incontinence etc.
Emma, a specialist in urology and lasers, first began to look further into the treatment when she was offered no relief for her own post-partum issues on the NHS.

Nu-V was developed in 2016 and has since been used to treat thousands of women both in the UK and beyond. Relieving issues of laxity, incontinence, atrophy and sexual dysfunction, the laser is a beacon for women suffering from a lack of understanding in the health care service.

Now, with her team of specialist, trained nurses who have all experienced the Nu-V treatment themselves, Emma is pleased to see her own invention being used across The Women’s Health Clinics, bringing satisfaction to women the UK over.

Celebrity Vagina

Why is it always in the News?

We live in a moder age and the “Vagina” is still a taboo subject and one would be forgiven for thinking that a vaginal treatment is no longer something that grabs headlines, sells tabloids and more disappointing of all pushes the primitive narrative of “designer vagina” “vaginal facelift” and many alike. We are women and we all have one and it needs looking after as much as the other parts of our body. This should not be a headline news!

Nu-V Non Surgical Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation

Vaginal treatments specially the surgery is still a divisive conversation topic against the backdrop of the recent development of the Nu-V medical CE laser, Other lasers, aesthetic lasers, Hifu and radio frequency treatments. Following FDA warning these treatments have caused intense international debate. It is absolutely true that many non-medical practitioners are allowed to carry out this procedure on women and it truly is quite alarming. The Women’s Health Clinic is one of the first in the UK to pioneer such treatment and actively campaigning for this treatment to be strictly regulated.

It seems that the showbiz aesthetic culture spread down the waistline and yes we are talking about Vagina and not Butt which also seem to have its fair share of attention, one must hasten to add. So a medical procedure now has become the talk of the town for absolutely the wrong reason.

Today’s hottest stars from Kim Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, Brandi Glanville, Briana Dejesus, Hazel E, Sonja Morgan, Renee Graziano, Gemma Collins, Cynthia Bailey, Sharon Osbourne, Jenna Jameson, Danielle Lloyd, Kelly Deadmon, Jada Pinkett Smith, Farrah Abraham, Kelly Deadmon, Alice Goodwin to many more chose to publicise their procedure in some cases in a very graphic and outspoken manner.

Nu-V is not a designer vaginal facelift

While women power is a great thing and we are all about women taking back control of their bodies. But the sensationalism is counter productive to women power and rights. The only reason comedians always get a laugh and papers finds provocative headline focussing on vagina, is that vagina is still a taboo subject and as long as that remains the case, we will make very little progress addressing many urgent Women’s Health issues.

Am I normal?
Women are constantly changing. Through puberty to motherhood and on to menopause, our education and medical profession offer a simplified version of what it is like to be a woman. But we change. We evolve. And we all have the same question…Am I normal?

Through puberty to motherhood and on to menopause, our education and medical profession offer a simplified version of what it is like to be a woman. But we change. We evolve. And we all have the same question…Am I normal? A recent survey conducted by The Women’s Health Clinic found that 57% of women do not feel comfortable talking about their female health to the medical profession. From general health to childbirth and menopause, women and their families do not always understand the lifecycle of female health which leads to embarrassment and confusion. The survey found that although 87% went through sexual education at school, the majority agree that better awareness of general female health complaints, common problems with fertility, childbirth and the menopause would have greatly benefited their education. Limited access to female health professionals, nurses and the general appointment system we have do not always fit around the life of a working woman or mother who can feel vulnerable in a ‘treat-all’ GP surgery that tries to solve her changing concerns within a 10-minute appointment. Then, upon turning to the internet, women often find themselves censored from looking for this information as search engines deem our questions ‘adult content’, restricting the expertise of the medical community out there. So our frustration is very obvious! While so much graphic and sensational coverage is dominating our mainstream and digital media, very little attention is give in addressing issue of Women’s Sexual Health in a productive and healthy manner.

Women and Nu-V
There are medical, personal, emotional and critical reasons why women choose to undertake Nu-V Vaginal CO2 Laser treatment, however, many young mothers are opting for the Nu-V Vaginal CO2 Laser treatment after giving birth in order to rejuvenate and tighten their vagina.
Read more
The laser works by stimulating collagen growth in the vaginal tissue, improving muscle tone and increasing sensation during sexual intercourse. This is something that many women are conscious of after the birth of their children. In fact, many women experience a lack of confidence and a low self-esteem as their body changes post-partum, so the Nu-V Vaginal CO2 Laser treatment can help these women to feel more like themselves, restoring their confidence and helping them to feel desired again.

For those celebrities who are always in the limelight, this lack of confidence can be a key concern as their bodies are seen by millions around the world and their confidence has direct connection in the way they engage with their followers and press. While the public may not see the physical results of a Nu-V Vaginal CO2 Laser treatment, their regained confidence is playing a key role in their public life.

While this is one of the most popular reasons for celebrities loving this procedure, there are other benefits that many women may be searching for when they choose Nu-V.

Why Choose TWHC and the NU-V?

Nu-v is delivered using a medical CE approved CO2 laser manufactured solely for TWHC to very high clinical grade standards and is approved by FDA etc.

TWHC: What makes us special? Why come to us?

The service is completely Nurse-led, and founder Emma Soos developed the service using an existing well researched and successful CO2 treatment program, and adapted to fit in to women’s other needs.

Our clinical and managing director hold clinics weekly. We feel it important to be present in day to day practice as well as finding it a very fulfilling role. It helps us to support our nurses better and hear our patients directly

We make the best use of your time: The treatment takes 10-15 minutes. All appointments are 45 mins for initial and 30 mins for follow-ups, making the treatment time efficient for busy women. This is preceded by a 20 minute telephone consultation to ensure you get an appointment with the most appropriately trained nurse for your condition. You can choose to have your treatment on the day of consultation if you wish.

There are no sales people. The website and content is written by nurses. All telephone calls and consultations are with a registered nurse who is non-clinical in order to be available all day every day. If you need to speak to your practitioner, you can book in for a free catch up.

All our nurses and midwives are specialists in their field. We have skill sets including, Midwifery, pelvic floor specialists, Urology, Sexual & reproductive health (contraception and fertility ), gynaecology, Menopause, and ante-natal care. Most of nurses practice daily in their specialist field, enabling them to keep up to date with current practice in their area of expertise.

With our unique skill set we are able to pick up on other related conditions which may have been missed in any other setting such as an aesthetic practitioner using a generic device without the anatomical knowledge or experience.

Many of our nurses are prescribers and can prescribe adjuvant therapies as necessary, saving time visiting other Drs.

This skill set enables us to create the more complex cases that other providers may shy away from.

We recommend a gold standard of 3 treatments in a year, with annual top up, in line with clinical studies that have been proven to work for the majority of patients. We acknowledge that some patients may need less ( rarely more) than the recommendation treatments and our pricing structure allows for all budgets, allowing patients to pay for their treatment program in stages or having as many or as few they feel they need/want.

Our treatments are priced to generously reflect the budget of the majority patients rather than those more more able to afford the same treatment for £1,000’s rather than £100’s. This enables us to meet the needs of those ladies with tighter budget constraints that suffer the same issues. We have significantly lower outgoings due to our relationships with our clinic partners

We offer on-going review and follow-up by telephone and patient survey forms and routinely offer patients ways to get in touch to provide feedback.

We are a registered CQC practice.

We are a viable option and alternative to surgery for symptom management and diagnosis. Two of the main surgical procedures for Stress incontinence have been withdrawn this year, leaving women with very little choice to alleviate suffering from this very common condition.

We are your voice and advocate. If we need to refer you for specialist advice such as urology, gynaecology or physio, we are your advocate and voice to ensure you get what you need from health care providers as a standard. No more gatekeepers or having to bare all in a 7 minute GP appointment

We provide internal and external rejuvenation as a standard package. Other clinics only offer internal rejuvenation.

We are all women and we have all received the treatments ourselves, and have a wide and varied gynaecological history each, as do our patients.

The treatment was recently recommended as a possible solution to Vaginal atrophy by the British Menopause Society of which our menopause specialist nurses are a member of.

We are committed to ongoing research to develop a treatment pathway that will be proposed to the NHS and NICE based on our retrospective research of patient data with other studies proposed in the future for other clinical indications for which we have been able to help with.

We have fantastic patient relationships, some of our patients have been key players in helping to support the growth of our business and have appeared in the media and TV. These patients are happy to chat with any of our clients wishing to hear their real stories ( some of these are on our websites)

We work closely with our device manufacturer. We have a bespoke operating system with a very strong working relationship. This enables us to adapt our equipment to be more efficient in real time and quickly as we discover better ways for it to work.

We often have events that patients can be invited to, extending our message to all women. We have facebook pages, and are active online.

All our clinic activity happens in private rooms, from consultation, to treatment, and even payment. Nobody in the waiting room or reception need ever know why you are with us

We are actively involved in campaigns to improve the outcomes for all aspects of women health. Our am I normal campaign ( link) is one aspect. We are embarking on a program of education in the work place to raise awareness of women’s health issues based on patients requests for more information.

We are continually reviewing our practice and improving our services based on patient requirements and feedback. We are adding other aspects to the treatment such as using growth factors in blood platelets to enhance our treatment outcomes

We have access to a Consultant Oncology ( cancer) gynaecologist who is on hand for specialist advice.

We are constantly introducing new services in women health to ensure as many aspects of women health are covered in one place. These have been influenced by patients request, such as our bio-identical hormone service.

We have a reliable supplier chain: We work closely with this who have specialist skills such as Dr Marion Gluck, a new women’s physio, psychosexual counsellor and nutritionist to ensure all women’s health is addressed as holistically as possible.

Vaginal rejuvenation, Laser, Tightening - What?

Vaginal rejuvenation refers to the various medical procedures aimed at correcting issues with the vagina. These issues may arise due to a range of factors, including childbirth, aging, and genetics, leading to symptoms such as urinary incontinence, vaginal dryness, sagging skin, and reduced sexual pleasure. As a result, many individuals seek vaginal rejuvenation as a means of restoring the appearance and function of their vagina. There are both surgical and non-surgical options available for vaginal rejuvenation.

Vaginal rejuvenation, Laser, Tightening - Why?

Women often opt for vaginal rejuvenation to address the effects of childbearing and menopause on their bodies, such as decreased vaginal tightness, lack of lubrication, and reduced sexual intimacy. This procedure aims to mitigate these symptoms and improve the following conditions:

• Sagging skin in the vaginal area
• Uncontrollable urine leakage during physical activities
• Difficulty retaining urine
• Decreased sexual desire
• Excessive dryness
• Pain during sexual intercourse
• Diminished sexual sensation and satisfaction
• Low self-confidence or self-esteem.

Vaginal Surgery, Laser, Tightening - How (Surgery)?

Surgical vaginal rejuvenation involves the use of sedation or anesthesia and is typically performed by a gynecologist or plastic surgeon. The following procedures are commonly performed for vaginal rejuvenation:

• Labia reshaping: Modifying the appearance of the labia or the vaginal lips.
• Vaginectomy: Restoring the tightness of the vaginal canal, commonly after childbirth.
• Clitoral hood reduction: Removing any excessive tissue that covers the clitoris.
• Mons reduction: Eliminating fatty tissue in the mons pubis area.
• Vulvar reshaping: Modifying the appearance of the external genitalia.
• Perineal strengthening: Reinforcing the perineum, the space between the vagina and anus.

The specifics of your vaginal rejuvenation surgery will vary depending on the type of procedure you undergo. Prior to undergoing any surgery, you will have a consultation with a surgeon to assess your symptoms and desired outcomes. It is important to use this time to ask any questions you may have and fully understand the potential risks and benefits of the procedure.

Duration of the surgery can range anywhere from one to two hours, depending on the complexity of the procedure and the techniques used by the surgeon. General anesthesia is typically administered for these surgeries, which are performed in an outpatient setting. While you are asleep, the surgeon will make carefully placed incisions in your vulva or vagina, and surrounding tissue and muscle, and will then close the incisions using dissolvable sutures.

After the surgery, your surgeon will provide you with specific post-operative instructions, including limitations on certain activities, such as sexual intercourse. You may be given ice packs and pain medication to alleviate any discomfort, but it is important to note that you will not feel any pain during the surgery due to the general anesthesia.

It is crucial to thoroughly understand the procedure, the potential risks involved, and the post-operative instructions before giving your consent for any surgical procedure. Following these instructions is important in avoiding infection or injury.

Vaginal rejuvenation, Laser, Tightening - How (Non-Surgery)?

Nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation is a minimally invasive option with a minimal downtime. It aims to tighten and tone the vaginal area without the need for needles or surgery. This method of rejuvenation works by heating the upper layers of vaginal tissue, stimulating the creation of additional collagen and firmer tissue in the underlying layers.

Some common nonsurgical treatments include:

• CO2 laser therapy: Utilizing a laser to heat the upper layers of vaginal tissue, thereby inducing the creation of more collagen in the lower layers, resulting in tighter and firmer skin. Examples of laser devices include MonaLisa Touch, FemTouch, and FemiLift.
• Radiofrequency (RF) treatment: Using electromagnetic waves to heat the vaginal tissue and increase blood flow, leading to collagen production. Brands of RF devices include Nu-V, Monalisa Touch, Familift, Viveve, Emsella, and ThermiVA.
• Both RF and laser treatments are performed in a clinical setting and typically do not require any local anesthesia. Patients are able to resume their daily activities without the need for extended recovery time.

Nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation offers a minimally invasive solution for enhancing the tone and tightness of the vaginal area. The procedure involves the use of laser or radiofrequency technology, which delivers controlled heat to the tissue to stimulate collagen production and rejuvenate the skin. The treatment is performed by a skilled provider and typically lasts from 5 to 30 minutes, depending on the intensity of the laser or RF waves and the specific procedure being performed.

During the procedure, a probe equipped with a light-emitting device is inserted into the vagina or applied to the external genital area. The provider uses gentle rotations or strokes to evenly distribute the heat and stimulate collagen production. Nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation is a painless procedure that may require the use of a topical anesthetic, although discomfort is generally minimal.

Following the procedure, you may experience some redness or swelling, which should subside within 24 to 48 hours. To achieve the best results, it's important to follow all of your provider's post-procedure instructions, including avoiding sexual activity and tampon use for a few days. You may require multiple treatments to reach your desired outcome.

Vaginal rejuvenation, Laser, Tightening - Benefits?

• Enhance the tightness of the vagina
• Provide a solution for urinary incontinence
• Boost lubrication and moisture levels
• Enhance vaginal sensitivity and sensations
• Strengthen weak muscles in the vagina and pelvic area
• Alleviate pain during intercourse
• Enhance the appearance of the vulvar region, including the labia, clitoris, and vaginal opening

Vaginal rejuvenation, Laser, Tightening - What can go wrong?

Vaginal rejuvenation, whether surgical or non-surgical, may carry certain risks that should be considered before undergoing the procedure. Not all treatments have been medically verified to be safe or effective. Among the potential risks associated with vaginal rejuvenation, surgical methods carry a higher level of risk. Some of these risks include: pain, bleeding, infection, scarring, and even painful intercourse (dyspareunia). It's important to discuss these potential risks with our nurses and weigh them against your desired outcomes before making a decision about whether to undergo vaginal rejuvenation treatment.

Vaginal rejuvenation, Laser, Tightening - Does it work?

The outcome of vaginal rejuvenation varies and not all treatments have been fully tested for safety and efficacy. The FDA (See our press release here : http://thewomenshealth.clinic/fda-warning-vaginal-rejuvenation-nuv/) has issued warnings regarding the marketing practices of some companies offering vaginal rejuvenation. The ACOG has also warned against these procedures, dubbing the marketing tactics as "deceptive." It's important to have a thorough evaluation with our nurses and be fully aware of the potential risks and complications before undergoing any vaginal rejuvenation treatment.
