Pearly Penile Papules Laser Treatment

PEARLY PENILE PAPULE Treatment : Valley Aesthetics and Laser-Huntington Beach,CA,USA
At Valley Aesthetics and Laser Dr.Karan is committed to be leaders in the aesthetic medicine by providing the latest technologies combined with the highest medical care for its patients. Thus, here you can benefit from the most efficient genital treatments against a skin condition very common in men, namely the Pearly Penile Papules (PPP ).
So, the most efficient genital treatment against Pearly Penile Papules that we can offer is 
Fotona Erbium Laser.
This penile skin condition manifests through the appearance of several small dome-shaped or filiform skin-colored papules of 1-2 mm in size, which are usually located on the glans penis. These bumps are frequently arranged circumferentially in one or several rows. Pearly penile papules are never malignant lesions, nor transmitted through sexual contact or associated with the personal hygiene. They usually appear in uncircumcised men but anyone can be affected, around the age of 20-30 and this gradually decrease with age, affecting approximately 35% of the male population. This genital condition is asymptomatic and may persist the entire life, in time however becoming less visible. If you are concerned with this problem, you most certainly want to undergo a specialized treatment and Valley Aesthetics and Laser is the most appropriate place to do this in a simple, quick manner and with optimum results! 

The latest technology used in our clinic for a variety of 
skin conditions, including the pearly penile papules is Erbium Laser. The treatments that use Erbium Laser are safe, fast, painless, do not cause bleeding and leaves minimal to no scarring. Because radio frequency uses radio waves and not electricity, the adjacent tissues to the treated area are less affected and the small electrode which simultaneously cuts and cauterizes the papules that ensures a more precise and complete removal, reducing the healing time. Another equally significant advantage is that the electrode auto-sterilizes during its use, reducing thus the risk of post-operative infection. 

The Erbium Laser treatment against pearly penile papules lasts between 30 and 45 minutes. Most patients do not require any kind of anesthesia after the papules removal. Complete downtime usually takes 8-10 days from treatment, but during this period the level of discomfort is absolutely minimal. Many patients worry about the level of pain during the Erbium Laser treatment and still, they remain pleasantly surprised by the fact that it’s minimal. The surgical intervention takes place under local anesthesia and you will be able to normally resume your daily activities immediately after the procedure except you are advised to refrain from penetrative sex for a period of 7-10 days.

Because at Valley Aesthetics and Laser, our professionalism and field experience says it all, the doctor in charge of your clinical condition will take into consideration and analyze in the beginning your medical history, in detail in order to avoid any kind of unwanted problems and also to ensure the most suitable type of treatment for you. In our clinic, Erbium Laser treatments are considered among the most efficient and safe with minimal scarring and least down time as compared to other forms of treatment.

Wart Treatment With Nd:Yag Laser

Warts, or verrucas in medical terms, are growths on the skin's level, noncancerous but unsightly, caused by the human papillomavirus. Harmless at first sight, verrucas must be found and removed as soon as possible because they have a high degree of infectiousness and they can spread to other areas of the body.
Wart removal is an easy, fast and with minimum discomfort laser treatment at Valley Aesthetics and Laser in Huntington Beach ,CA,USA, where our expert doctors and RNs are at your disposal with the latest medical cosmetic treatments such as the laser wart removal. Nd:Yag laser treatment for wart and verrucas removal used in our clinic makes use of an advanced technology based on a medical device, which directs the high intensity light directly on the pathogenic cells. These work by directly killing the virus and damaging the blood supply which is feeding these warts.
Before any laser treatment, you will discuss with one of our specialist estheticians about your needs and problems, in order to understand all the aspects of this procedure. ND:Yag laser wart removal treatment is a high precision technique that melts each layer until they slowly vanish. Before the ND:Yag laser intervention, a small local anesthesia is made, a painless process. Laser's duration of action is between 30 seconds and 2 minutes for each wart or verrucas, depending on the size and age of the wart. 

The big plus of the Nd:Yag laser treatment is the fact that the laser beam does not spread to the healthy cells and that it does not attack the adjacent healthy tissues. It instantly coagulates blood vessels so there is no bleeding. Unlike other methods of verrucas removal, the laser treatment does not affect the surrounding healthy tissue therefore the recovery is much faster. Another advantage of this laser therapy is that in the postoperative period, it turns into a smooth, superficial and almost indistinguishable scar, which will heal definitively in just over one-two weeks. We use top of the line European Forotna XPmax NdYag Laser.
If you are troubled by unsightly skin warts and verrucas,Valley Aesthetics and Laser offers you the perfect solution to eliminate them with the help of ND:yag laser treatment, in a safe, painless and efficient way, made by a professional personnel and skin specialists.

Erbium Laser Peel:Unparalleled and Unrivaled Result

Lite Erbium Laser Peel
Huntington Beach Office:
Hacienda Heights Office:
Fotona Erbium Yag laser is very unique, allowing the operator to make adjustments for various skin types. As an ablative laser peel, it requires 1-2 days of patient downtime. The laser goes deep in epidermis and removes 10-25 micrometers of epidermis in homogenous manner. The goal is to remove age and sun spots, keratosis and fine pigments and soften fine wrinkles. Typically several treatments are required on monthly basis to achieve the result.
Lite Laser peel gently refreshes the skin’s surface and helps remove the superficial blemishes and skin irregularities. Deeper peel penetration in the epidermis helps soften the wrinkles. Fotona Erbium Yag laser is ideal for acne scarring, pore minimization, fine lines and wrinkles, pigmented areas, crow’s feet wrinkles, tightening of eyelids, tightening of the hands, and removal of sunspots on the hands. This peel is a more effective alternative to microdermabrasion.

Post treatment:
Immediately following the procedure, the treated area needs to be soaked with soft gauze soaked in vinegar and water. Vinegar soaks will soothe the area and soften the dried blood and possible crusting for removal. The acid pH of the vinegar also discourages bacterial growth.
Ointment is then applied after each vinegar soak. This is to be continued until the treated area is free of peeling skin, and is smooth. Once the area is smooth, vinegar soaks are decreased, but ointment use continues until healed completely.

G Shot and G Spot Amplification Procedure

G Spot Amplification With Hyaluron for Enhanced Sexual Satisfaction in normally Sexually Active Women
The G-SHOT® (clinical description: G-Spot Amplification or GSA), is a simple, nonsurgical, physician-administered treatment that can temporarily augment the Grafenburg spot (G-Spot) in sexually active women with normal sexual function. 

The FDA approved hyaluronan is a specially developed and processed high molecular weight hyaluronan which doesn’t require pre-injection skin testing. 

G-Spot Amplification was invented and developed by a gynecologist David Matlock, MD, MBA, FACOG and I was trained by Dr.Matlock for this procedure.

In a pilot study, 87% of women surveyed after receiving the G-Shot reported enhanced sexual arousal/gratification. Results do vary. 

The affect can last for up to 4 months, and does vary. 
HOW DOES G-Shot Works:
The G-Shot® is a painless office procedure performed in your doctor’s office under local anesthesia. The actual injection usually takes less than 8 seconds and the total office visit time is usually less than 30 minutes. A specially designed speculum is used to assist in the deliver a specified amount of high molecular weight hyaluronan directly into the G-Spot after local anesthesia. The G-Shot® augments (enlarges) the G-Spot. This results in a G-Spot about the size of a quarter in width, and one fourth of an inch in height (meaning the projection into the vagina). Note that results do vary.
Before you try and schedule your first G-Shot® treatment consultation, you probably have some questions, such as: How long will it take? How long will the results last? When can I resume sex? 

Here's what you might expect at the doctor's office from the moment you arrive until your procedure is done. (Please note that although this experience is typical, the routine at your doctor's office may be different.) 

The day of your appointment. Allow time before your appointment for filling out forms and for consulting with the doctor or a member of his or her staff. 

You may also be asked about your expectations for treatment and if you have any allergies or any condition that wouldn't make you a good candidate for the G-Shot. 

Before the procedure. In the consultation process your doctor will educate you on the G-Spot and how to localize it. Your doctor will go over risks and complications verbally and he or she will give you written consent as well. It is important to the doctor that every patient is completely informed of the risks, complications and alternatives to the procedure (please see 
risk and complications). You will then go into the examination room alone and perform a self examination based upon the doctor’s instructions and after you are comfortable with the localization of the G-Spot you will notify the assistant and they will come in to start the procedure. 

The procedure. You will be positioned on the examination table as if you are “getting a PAP smear” and the doctor will do a pelvic exam and measurement of the G-Spot based upon your direction. He will transfer this measurement to a ruler and then a special speculum. The speculum, which has the location of the G-Spot on it, will then be inserted into the vagina and then a small needle will be used to deliver a small amount of local anesthetic in the area of the G-Spot. Then the high molecular weight hyaluronan will be injected. After this a tampon is placed (the tampon is to be removed in 4 hours). The entire G-Shot
® injection procedure takes approximately 10 minutes. 

After the procedure. There's no recovery time needed. You're ready to get on with your day! The most common side effect following injection includes scant bleeding from the needle injection site. 

Results. Within 4 hours you can resume normal sexual activity. Results can last up to 4 months. Results do vary.
Q: Does the G-Shot® hurt?
A: No it doesn’t. Patients are given a local anesthetic via a tiny needle before the G-Shot
® thus making it painless.

Q: How long does the G-Shot® take?
A: The actual injection takes less than 8 seconds. The preparation for the G-Shot
® (consultation, consent, examination and measurements) takes about 25-30 minutes.

Q: How long does the effects of the G-Shot® last?
A: The effects last for about 4 months. Results do vary.

Q: Is the G-Shot® safe?
A: The G-Shot
® is safe and the risks are rare (see about safety).

Q: Does the G-Shot® make it easy for me to find my G-Spot?
A: The G-Shot
® makes it easier to locate the G-Spot.

Q: Can I continue to use tampons with the G-Shot®?
A: There is no problem with using tampons after the G-Shot

<~-- Q: Can the G-Shot® product move out of place?
A: After placement the G-Shot
® remains in its original position.

--> Q: After my first G-SHOT® is the next procedure quicker?
A: The next procedure is quicker because all the measurements are maintained in your record and the entire process is expedited resulting in only placement of the G-Shot

Q: Does the G-Shot® help you to become in tune with your G-Spot?
A: The G-Shot
® can help you become in tune to your G-Spot.

Q: How does the G-Shot® program help me to find my G-Spot?
A: In the consultative portion of the program, the physician will provide the information and assistance you with the knowledge to locate your G-Spot.

Q: Does the G-Shot® heighten awareness of the G-Spot?
A: The G-Shot
® can heighten awareness of the G-Spot (results do vary).

Q: Does the G-Shot® have any hormones in it?
A: The G-Shot
® is natural and it doesn’t contain any hormones.

Q: Does the G-Shot® affect my period?
A: The G-Shot
® should not affect the period.

The G-Shot is for normal sexually functioning women. It is not for women who have sexual dysfunctions (problems with the female sexual response cycle: arousal, plateau, orgasm, resolution); relationship problems or emotional/psychological problems. Also patients who fit the normal criteria may experience varied to no effect at all.
• In a pilot study, 87% of women (as described above) reported enhanced sexual arousal/gratification.
• Results can last for up to 4 months, and do vary.

Fillers are in huge demand for Wrikles treatment in medical spa all over US.It is an immediate fix and cost is not very much. The procedure is mostly done by RNs or Doctors and takes 10-20 minutes. Most of the Patients do not require any nerve block or numbing cream because all these fillers now has small amount of Lidocaine in it so when the injection is given it numbs the area very well.
Most of the patients have their own preferences about what they like and feel on their face if they have experience of having fillers injected on their face but for new comers it may be difficult to decide which ones they should chose out of several choices: Restylane,Perlane,Juvederm and Radiesse.
Restylane,Perlane,Juvederm are are made of Hyaluronic acid based material and Radiesse is made of Calcium Based Crystals of Hydroxyapetite. In my opinion allof them work well for naslabial fold and frown lines etc. Perlane is good for Lip enhancement as well and so is Restylane. In my opinion, Juvederm and Radiesse should not be used for Lips but can be used for other areas.
Cost can vary from 400-800 depending on size of Syringes.
