Vaginal PRP

 

Lichen Sclerosus * Urinary Incontinence * Atrophic Vaginitis * Sexual Dysfunction

This procedure is truly life changing! I dealt with vaginal lichen schlerosis for almost 10 years.  It didn't just impact my sex life, it also kept me from activities I love, like swimming in the ocean. The condition worsened overtime despite use of multiple treatment methods. I came to believe it was something I was just going to have to live with.  The results after Dr Peterson's treatment were beyond what I had hoped. My skin is healthier than it has been in years. I no longer experence painful sex and I feel like I have my life back.  Finally, something that works! - E.B.
