Objective: To describe the results of treatment with the CS Fractional CO2 Approach™ and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for Bartholin gland cysts.

Methods: Bartholin gland cysts were treated with Fractional CO2 and PRP as an outpatient’s setting in our medical clinic. Skin incisions were performed with a fractional CO2 laser. The capsule of the cyst was opened to drain mucoid content, followed by internal vaporization of the impaired capsule. This was followed by injection of PRP into the base of the cyst as well as the edges of the skin incision.

Results: There were no complications. Five patients had recurrence of the cyst and were submitted to a second and successful treatment session.

Conclusion: CS Fractional CO2 Approach therapy was effective in treating Bartholin gland cysts/abscess with minimal or no complications and can be easily and safely performed in an outpatient setting.
