Laser treatment of pearly penile papules

Hirsuties coronae glandis (also known as "hirsutoid papillomas,"and "pearly penile papules") are small whitish blemishes on glans penis or corona glandis. The papules appear as one or several rows of small, pearly or flesh-colored, smooth, dome-topped bumps. It is a harmless anatomical variation. They are found significantly more often on uncircumcised men and younger men.
They are common and estimated to be present in a quarter of adult men.  These bumps are not transmitted through sexual activity and are not a sexually transmitted infection (STI).

Treatment Some of the "home remedies" found on the Internet and elsewhere use mild ointments or creams to soften the papules, but others are physically dangerous techniques for papule removal which can result in permanent genital mutilation. Rapini et al. advise that, since dermatologists have safe, effective ways to remove them if desired, home remedies involving corrosive substances or self-surgery should be avoided, since they can permanently damage sexual functioning. They further state that removal should only be performed by a physician using proven medical techniques.[Source: wikipedia]

CO2 laser ablation is the gold-standard treatment for PPP or
pearly penile papules. We use a local anaesthetic cream to numb the area. Laser ablation is then a quick and painless procedure. Smaller papules are vapourised in an instant. Larger ones form a superficial scab which falls off in 7-10 days.

Cost typical cost for a session is £ 500 and usually only one session is required.

A guide to 'lunchtime' skin rejuvenation procedures

A guide to 'lunchtime' skin rejuvenation procedures
Looking younger does not have to mean cosmetic surgery 
Men and Women can choose from a variety of non-surgical treatments that can turn the clock back. The procedures discussed in this article were designed to reverse, improve or erase the earliest signs of ageing such as wrinkles, fine lines and sun damaged skin. They are often referred to as
lunch time procedures because they take very little time to perform and do not require a recovery period. 
What our patients like the most about these is that no one has to know they had them. They just look better!
 Your treatment options
About nine out of 10 patients seeking to look younger want to do so without going under the knife. They wish to avoid surgery, the anaesthesia, the down-time and the added expense. 

Injectbles relax the wrinkle producing muscles so they do not contract. After treatment the overlying skin remains smooth while the underlying facial muscles contract in a normal fashion allowing normal facial expressions to be unaffected.

Dermal fillers fill our wrinkles with a natural clear gel. No allergy test is required. These can also be used for lips, cheek or chin enhancements, nose reshaping and filling dark circles under the eyes.
Photorejuvenation is designed to reverse signs of skin ageing in a gentle way. IPL is used to simultaneously remove broken veins, age spots and pigment whilst stimulating new collagen and shrink pore size. It can blend and brighten your complexion.

Non-ablative lasers and radio-frequency treat wrinkles and lax skin by stimulating your own collagen production. This newly formed collagen fills the wrinkles from within.

Microdermabrasion leaves your skin softer, smoother and fresh looking. In less than 30 minutes this gentle treatment produces satisfying results.

Gentle chemical peels can improve skin texture, reduce acne and pigmentation. They gently exfoliate, smooth and soften the skin while they remove the outer layer of skin cells. They are great to improve dull, lifeless complexion.
Coltishall Cosmetic Clinic focuses on customised treatments for your unique needs. We only provide evidence based treatments that have a high satisfaction rate. We do not offer speculative or gimmicky treatments without established safety profile.

Treatment of venous lakes

Venous lakes are dark blue to violet compressible small swelling caused by dilatation of venules. These are common on sun-exposed skin. They also commonly occur on lips and are uncommon before 50 years of age.
The diagnosis is clinical and not difficult for the trained eye. Differential diagnosis includes melanoma and pigmented basal cell carcinoma. Venous lakes are soft, compressible, well defined and usually a few mm in size. Direct pressure created by a glass slide causes a vascular lesion such as a venous lake to blanch or fade as the blood is forced out.
Various treatments are available but the best treatment is with long pulsed Nd-Yag laser. There is lack of awareness of this even amongst the medical professionals. I believe that with recent advances in laser technology and wide availability of these, there is no role for any destructive modality in most cases. A variety of treatment modalities have been described. These include cryo therapy, diathermy, surgery and sclerotherapy. These can cause scarring and textural changes. A variety of lasers have been described but most success has been achieved with the long pulsed Nd-Yag laser.

Usually only one treatment session is required and patients are delighted with the outcome.  The results shown here are typical in our clinic. So this is one more instance where a particular laser is the obvious choice. It is non-invasive, quick and no anaesthesia or operation is required. There is no scarring and excellent results are achieved at a very reasonable cost.

Rosacea is a common condition. Often there is lack of awareness but there is no need to suffer in silence.

Consider rosacea if you have suffered from any of the following-facial flushing, redness, broken blood vessels, coarseness of skin and inflammatory eruption resembling acne.

Rosacea is defined by persistent redness of the central portion of the face lasting for at least 3 months. Other symptoms include flushing, acne like eruptions and visible blood vessels. Often there is burning and stinging, swelling, plaques, a dry appearance, eye symptoms such as redness and stinging and a swollen, bulbous nose.

Frequent triggers to flushing include acutely felt emotional stress, hot drinks, alcohol, spicy foods, exercise, cold or hot weather, and hot baths and showers and some skin creams.

There are four different types of rosacea; each with their unique features and treatment may differ. Some other conditions can resemble rosacea but usually this is a clinical diagnosis. Occasionally blood tests are required to rule out other conditions.

Erythematotelangiectatic type [ETR]
Central facial flushing, often accompanied by burning or stinging, is the predominant sign. The redness usually spares the skin around the eyes. These patients typically have dry skin with a fine texture.

Papulopustular rosacea [PPR]
Papulopustular rosacea is the classic presentation of rosacea. Patients are women of middle age who predominately present with a red central portion of their face that contains small red lumps, some with white heads.

Phymatous rosacea
Phymatous rosacea is defined as marked skin thickenings and irregular surface nodularities of the nose, chin, forehead, one or both ears, and/or the eyelids. This is more common in men.
Ocular rosacea
This is rosacea, which affects the eyes causing blepharitis, conjunctivitis, inflammation of the lids and conjunctival redness. Symptoms include eye stinging or burning, dryness, irritation with light, or foreign body sensation.


As rosacea is a poorly understood condition there is no cure but we aim to control the symptoms. It is important to avoid or reduce precipitating factors such as stress, spicy foods and sudden changes in temperature.
Your GP may prescribe antibiotic gels, creams or tablets that help in papulopustular type of rosacea but do little to help flushing and blood vessels. Other medications are vitamin A based creams or isotretenoin and some medications to reduce flushing.

Laser treatment is mainstay for flushing and broken blood vessels. We use IPL and a variety of lasers to help reduce it. Broken veins disappear in a few sessions but flushing control need multiple sessions. LED or light emitting diode therapy can help as well.

Phymatous rosacea is treated very successfully with a combination of vascular lasers and CO2 laser to remove thickened tissue under a local anaesthetic.

Ocular rosacea is currently not treated with lasers. Further research is likely to produce more treatment options but for now we advocate laser therapy, which helps a majority of rosacea sufferers.
