Treatment of pearly Penile Papules (PPP) with laser

Pearly Penile Papules (PPP) is a treatable condition that affects a small percentage of men in the United States. The small white bumps around the head of the penis are more than a cosmetic nuisance. My patients complain of occasional irritation and soreness after sex. They can be mistaken for STD and will not go away without medical intervention.

I have treated several dozen such patients over the past 15 years with a combination of Mixto Co2 laser and electrocautery with excellent cosmetic results.

The treatment is practically painless and recovery is about 4-7 days. The risk of scarring is minimal and the majority of the patients are very happy with the laser treatment.

PPP pr Pearly penile Papule treated with laser

PPP or Pearly Penile Papules

I have treated nearly 100 patients with PPP over the past 16 years.

This benign condition can cause profound anxiety in younger men.

It is easily treatable with lasers and leaves virtually no marks.

I start the consultation with a thorough medical exam followed by detailed photographs outlining the procedure and healing phases. 1-2 sessions are usually needed to eliminate the problem. The healing phase is 5-7 days. Mild redness and soreness can last up to 2 weeks.

Please come in for a free and confidential consultation

"Neda Protocol" for the treatment of severe acne scarring

”?

I often see patients with deep acne scarring who have atrophic, ice pick, box car, and rolling scars.

These types of scarring are difficult to treat. Each type of scar requires a separate modality and special consideration.

Ice pick scars are punched out using different size round punches. The holes are basically excised and the skin surtured back in place. The ensuing scar from the excision is evened off using a CO2 fractional laser (Mixto CO2).

Rolling and atrophic scars are treated with Subcison.

Subcision involves using a small knife under the skin to cut the bands that are pulling the skin down.

Atrophic areas are filled in with PRP (Plasma Rich protein) or fat.

The skin is tightened using Ultherapy or Pelleve.

I call this combination therapy “The Neda protocol”

Please see his for a free consultaion.

Restylane Silk; the newest filler introduced for luscious lips.

There is a new filler in town!

Restylane Silk was introduced this week and I had a chance to use it for the first time. I think the jury is still out on its longevity. I loved the way it glided in the syringe and achieved great results in sculpting luscious lips. It may also have a role in acne scarring and shallow lines around the eyes and mouth.

The key will fillers into the lip area is achieving a natural look. Big lips are out and luscious silky lips are in.

Please call us for specials this month on Restylane Silk.
