The Pearly Penile Papules are a skin condition that affects up to 40% of the male population, with no apparent or well-determined cause, specialists pointing out the hypothesis of an obstruction of the sebaceous glands as a plausible triggering factor. PPP or the Pearly Penile Papules appear as a series of small, tube or dome-shaped bumps around the glans penis, distributed circumferentially in one or several rows.
Although asymptomatic, these Pearly Penile Papules are a true cosmetic nightmare for the men suffering from this condition as they can affect their sexual life, being often mistaken with various STDs. Thus, the only problem caused by PPP or the Pearly Penile Papules is a continuous psychological stress upon men who present these skin lesions.
Among the PPP removal treatments recommended by one of Renew Skin & Health Clinic specialists, Dr. Jha, are the CO2 laser ablation, excisional surgery and radiosurgery which ensure guaranteed results, and also several other natural remedies, which do not guarantee a complete removal of these skin lesions except for a few cases.
Because you desire permanent and satisfying results, Dr. Jha from Renew Skin & Health Clinic recommends first of all radiosurgery, which is a non-surgical, minimally invasive and non-aggressive removal procedure, being at the same time safe and highly efficient and ensuring far superior cosmetic results as compared to any other PPP removal treatments. Radiosurgery uses high frequency and low-temperature radio waves, whose energy reacts with the water within the skin lesion cells, determining their evaporation and thus removing the cells. This procedure acts at a superficial skin level, and the electrode used provides the practitioner with great precision, the Pearly Penile Papules removal treatment with radiosurgery enabling the sole removal of the lesions, without causing any damage to the adjacent tissues. Due to the simultaneous cauterization property, there is no or minimal bleeding, during or after the procedure. The skin lesion is thus closed and the healing process is enhanced and accelerated, requiring no downtime.
Regarding the CO2 laser ablation technique, this Pearly Penile Papules removal treatment is also non-surgical and non-invasive, but this procedure can cause minimal burning of the adjacent tissues. Nevertheless, the abovementioned disadvantage is dramatically reduced when the procedure is performed by a fully qualified and experienced practitioner, offering at the same time satisfying cosmetic results. The Pearly Penile Papules removal CO2 laser ablation procedure is painless, given that an anesthetic cream is applied prior to the intervention. As compared to radiosurgery, the CO2 laser procedure for PPP removal has another small downsize, that is, it usually requires two sessions in a gap of 2-3 weeks for complete results, while the former only requires a single off treatment session that usually lasts between 15 and 30 minutes.
The excisional surgery is a quite invasive PPP removal procedure as it uses a scalpel to eliminate each papule in a row. Although it is relatively painless, as a topical anesthetic is used, the excisional surgery mainly causes greater amounts of pain post-surgically, also implying a much longer recovery period as in the case of radiosurgery and the CO2 laser ablation. The Pearly Penile Papules removal is nevertheless complete and these skin lesions will not recur, but some scarring will remain unfortunately.
