Pearly Penile Papules

RADIOWAVE TREATMENT OF PEARLY PENILE PAPULES.

October Special $899/treatment

Pearly penile papules (PPP's) are small raised nodules (bumps), usually 1-2 mm in size, which are located around the rim of the penis head in the form of string of pearls. Usually developing during adolescence, they have been reported in up to 35% of males. Uncircumcised men are more likely to have pearly penile papules. Very often these lesions are confused with genital warts, although there is no known link between warts and pearly penile papules. Pearly penile papules are NOT malignant and are NOT spread via sexual contact. Most men with penile papules do not seek medical treatment. However, many men with papules feel uncomfortable in sexual situations because their partners may mistake the papules for genital warts or find the growths unattractive. *

Many treatment methods have been tried, including circumcision, podophyllin, cryotherapy, and even the amateur application of toothpaste. But these methods had proven to be either ineffective or have side effects. Until recently, electrodessication and carbon dioxide laser were considered the most effective treatment options. *

Since Radiowave surgery was introduced into dermatology, it became a great option to remove unwanted papules effectively, safely, and with no scarring or bleeding. Because radiofrequency uses radio waves and not electricity, there is less damage to surrounding tissue and its small and light hand-piece allows for more precise and complete removal. This is the reason Dr. Yagudin has chosen the Radiofrequency Wave Technology to remove penile papules. *
