The Pearly Penile Papules, also known as the PPP develop around the glans penis. They are represented by small, smooth bumps that can be pink or skin-coloured, with a diameter of 1 up to 3 mm. The PPP can appear circumferentially, in one or several rows, resembling a pearl chain, from where the name. The Pearly Penile Papules are of no concern as they do not represent a health issue, are not infectious, cannot be transmitted sexually and have no connection to personal hygiene. Moreover, they are painless and rather common (in aprox. 30% of the male population), unfortunately, their cause is not well-determined, being also asymptomatic. It is advised not to scratch or break them as this may lead to scars and infections.
Renew Skin & Health Clinic’s renowned specialist, Dr. Jha performs the specialized treatments for Pearly penile Papules removal, using state-of-the-art technology such as radiosurgery and CO2 laser ablation, providing his patients with the opportunity to benefit from highly innovative and safe procedures which ensure superior cosmetic results. Radiosurgery is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure for PPP removal as it acts at a superficial level of the skin, being painless due to the local anesthesia and decreasing the chances for infections thanks to the instantaneous cauterization property, leaving minimal to no scarring whatsoever. Radiosurgery or radiofrequency for Pearly penile Papules removal is a quick procedure, taking up to 15-30 minutes and requires no post-operative hospitalization and no downtime. Besides radiosurgery, Dr. Jha also uses the CO2 laser ablation therapy which consists in the application of laser beams upon the affected area, causing minimal damage to the adjacent tissues. The CO2 laser ablation for PPP removal is a highly precise treatment which “melts” every layer of tissue until the pearly penile papules are completely gone, lasting between 30 seconds and 2 minutes. Nevertheless, while the CO2 laser ablation treatment for PPP removal usually requires 2 sessions in a gap of 2-3 weeks apart, radiosurgery for Pearly Penile Papules removal requires a single session for complete results.
Dr. Jha at Renew Skin & Health Clinic recommends that patients suffering from the Pearly Penile Papules should only address specialists and experienced practitioners who can first of all set an accurate diagnosis and then determine if they are ideal patients for certain PPP removal treatments. We advise you to schedule a specialized consultation with us, and Dr. Jha will clear any inquiries you may have about the radiosurgery, CO2 laser ablation or other specialized treatments against this skin condition. We will strive to ensure the cosmetic results you are expecting, because the PPP is after all strictly an aesthetic problem.
