Non-Ablative Laser for Lichen Sclerosus

Introduction In our last video, I discussed ablative laser and addressed the question of whether it was an effective treatment for lichen sclerosus. I noted, in that video, that there are different types of laser, so, for today's video, we are going to look at non-ablative laser for lichen sclerosus and whether they are an effective treatment option for LS.
