Hirsuties papillaries genitalis or Hirsuties papillaries coronae glandis are small bumps usually shaped like a dome. They typically appear in the colour white or that of the skin, and are set in one or multiple rows. They are commonly referred to as Pearly Penile Papules (PPP).
Pearly Penile Papules are a common skin condition affecting roughly 20-30% of Males aged between 16 and 45. The bumps are harmless, asymptomatic, non-malignant and not sexually-transmittable growths. They however do not have any link to one’s personal hygiene. There is not a general rule of thumb for why they appear, but most specialists have agreed that they arise to due obstructed sweat glands or pores. What has been identified however is that PPP are far more frequent in Men who have not been circumcised compared to those who have but yet, it is also seen among those who are also circumcised.
If left untreated, they will not completely disappear, but will get smaller and probably less visible over many years. This could become a great stressor for individuals who deal with things like sexual rejection, and ultimately, low self-esteem. It will be useful for these individuals to realise that we here at Renew Skin & Health Clinic specialise in the removal of PPP, meaning Hirsuties papillaries genitalis will eventually become a distant memory.
The most common procedure for the removal of Hirsuties papillaries genitalis is either a laser ablation or electrosurgical ablation and at Renew Skin & Health Clinic we do both of these procedures and in addition, we provide you a life-long guarantee to get rid of these unwanted, unsightly bumps.
Dr Jha says “They are normal occurrence for many boys and they do not necessarily need any form of treatment and therefore can be left alone unless it is seriously affecting someone’s mental well-being. In which case, they can be removed.
Radiosurgery (electro surgery) is the most commonly used procedure for Hirsuties papillaries genitalis removal due to its obvious and immediate benefits. Using a high frequency and low temperature using radio wave energy. The procedure destroys the affected cells from within, acting with high accuracy solely upon the targeted area, causing no damage to the adjacent healthy tissues. Furthermore, it simultaneously cauterizes the lesion, thus preventing bleeding and future infections which is essential for the best outcome. The procedure at Renew Skin & Health Clinic is painless, bloodless and there is no risk of scarring or reoccurrence following the treatment, but this must be discussed with the treating doctor at the consultation. Currently our fees for radio-surgical treatment are £850.00 and this includes a free follow-up with our doctors.
CO2 laser treatment is also available at Renew Skin & Health Clinic, but this is more expensive (£1500.00) but the final outcome of PPP procedure is a lot better hence many prefer this method.
