Board-certified cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Groff, who is widely recognized as one of the world’s foremost specialists in treating PPP, offers expert advice for men who are dealing with this delicate issue.

San Diego, CA (PRWEB) March 06, 2017

Small light-colored bumps that form on the head of the penis, known as pearly penile papules, are not uncommon. In fact, according to a recent Tripoli Clinic article, the condition occurs in nearly half of all males once they leave puberty. The condition is neither painful nor life threatening, but many men find it embarrassing to talk about, especially with their partner or even their doctor. Internationally acclaimed PPP specialist Dr. William Groff opens up about the condition as well as treatment options.

“As you can imagine, it’s a delicate issue. PPP doesn’t pose a health risk to a man or his partner – it is not related to genital warts nor is it contagious – but it can cause substantial intimacy and self-esteem issues,” Dr. Groff said. “Since it’s not a threat to a man’s health, treatment for PPP is not necessary; however, since it can cause issues with intimacy and sexual performance, for many men, PPP treatment is highly sought-after.”

The causes of PPP are not well known, but it does seem to occur more often in men who are uncircumcised. Several types of treatment are available, including laser treatments and at-home over-the-counter therapies. Dr. Groff has written extensively about PPP and treatment and has performed over 700 successful pearly penile papules treatment procedures. Visit to learn more.

“At Cosmetic Laser Dermatology, we use the latest in cutting-edge CO2 laser treatment for PPP patients,” Dr. Groff said. “The patients undergo a 20-30-minute procedure that effectively reduces, if not outright removes, the bumps and restores a more natural look to the penis. Many men are surprised at how painless it is, but since there are no injections and we apply a topical numbing agent before the procedure, there is virtually no pain.”

Even though at-home treatments exist, patients fly into San Diego from all over the world to see Dr. Groff for safe, permanent laser PPP treatment. Moreover, downtime is virtually non-existent and full recovery normally takes 7-10 days. To learn more and see videos as well as before-and-after images, visit

“I caution men with PPP against trying any of the at-home, over-the-counter remedies found at local drugstores because they are not effective and, even worse, often cause painful, ugly side effects,” Dr. Groff said. “Laser surgery may cause swelling, redness, and even scabbing, but those things normally heal in 10-14 days, and in such a delicate, sensitive area, it’s not a good idea to take a risk on treatment that causes more problems. With laser surgical treatment, men with PPP can have everything back to normal in a short amount of time.”
