Fast, Effective, and Needle Free

Pearly Penile Papule Treatment at Laser Center of Maryland

Pearly Penile Papules (PPP) is caused by tiny glands that become enlarged on the corona of the penis. They look different but they are not an infection or a disease of any sort. Most men want them removed because they cause concern for their partners or because they are embarrassed by their appearance. The papules are completely normal, but your concerns are personal. That’s where Dr. VanAntwerp can help with expert and precise care. 

UltraPulse Laser Treatment

Our doctors use the UltraPulse Laser with an operating microscope to precisely remove Pearly Penile Papules (PPP). Microscopic guidance allows the doctor to focus the laser beam to vaporize even the smallest papule without damaging surrounding skin. This results in fast comfortable healing with a good cosmetic result. You feel absolutely NO pain due to a strong lidocaine cream that is applied one hour prior to procedure. This specially compounded lidocaine cream eliminates the need for needles. Your procedure time is approximately 60 to 90 minutes depending on the severity of your condition. 

Minimal Recovery Time

Most men have very little discomfort following treatment. You will have a few weeks of redness in the treated area. The first few days you might experience mild irritation but that quickly resolves. Ibuprofen or Tylenol can be used to reduce inflammation if needed. You should refrain from sexual activity for two weeks to allow for complete healing. It is our goal to get you back to normalcy and intimacy as soon as possible.
