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.
