Fordyce spots are a skin disorder that manifests in both men and in women through the appearance of small, elevated, pale, red or whitish bumps on the shaft of the penis or the scrotum, respectively on the labia, and in some cases even on the inner surface and borders of the lips. Much like the Pearly Penile Papules, these skin lesions are not contagious, they are asymptomatic, harmless, never cancerous and not sexually transmissible. The only hindrance they cause is a cosmetic one, which can also lead to psychological stress due to the fact that they are highly visible (when on the lips).
Renew Skin & Health Clinic provides our patients with a highly effective, safe and quick Fordyce spots removal treatment, namely the electrodessication procedure with radiosurgery. As with other types of skin bumps and lesions, radiosurgery is very well tolerated as it is firstly a non-surgical procedure, which operates with low temperature and high frequency energy upon the Fordyce spots, eliminating them from within. The scarring risk with radiosurgery is also very low, almost inexistent, moreover, due to the simultaneous cauterization property, bleeding and possible future infections being prevented, which is a real advantage, given the high sensitivity of the genital area.
The radiosurgery treatment for Fordyce spots removal, both in men and in women requires a specialized dermatological consultation, so that our Renew Skin & Health Clinic specialist can rule out any other skin conditions that may resemble this disorder (such as Pearly papules or genital warts), perform a thorough skin examination and assess your medical history and current health condition for a proper diagnosis.
