Pearly Penile Papules(PPP)
Pearly penile papules or Hirsuties coronae glandis are tiny round lesions (1 – 3mm in size) that occur under the gland or head of the penis. They form in a string like formation hence the name “Pearly”. They are white to pinkish in colour and can occur in 1 or multi layers under the gland of the penis.
This skin condition has proven to be quite common in men. These bumps are not transmitted through sexual activity and are not a sexually transmitted infection (STI), this condition is completely harmless.
Genital warts are growths on the skin of the genital area. They are caused by certain types of the human papilloma virus (HPV). Genital warts symptoms are flesh-colored, soft-to-the-touch bumps on the skin that may look like the surface of a cauliflower. They often grow in more than one place and may cluster in large masses. Genital warts usually are painless, but they may itch.
The Ultra Pulse CO2 laser safely and effectively removals all types of genitalia lesions without disrupting the normal surrounding tissues – as it vapourises the tissues there is no excessive bleeding – allowing for a quick healing time, a light crusting forms over the area which flakes off over the next week or so revealing a clear scar free area. The Ultra Pulse CO2 laser removes the entire head and root of the lesion in 1 session. Local anaesthetic can be applied and the procedure can take from 30 minutes to an hour to complete depending on the amount of lesions that needs to be removed.
