Our Renew Skin and Health Clinic recognizes Fordyce Spots which are also known as Fordyce Granules “sebaceous prominence” as an unaesthetic issue and offers excellent treatment options to anyone who is in need.
These Fordyce Spots represent a common skin disorder which can develop on the lip’s vermillion boarder and on the genital area of both men and women, specifically on the shaft of the penis and the scrotum in men, or on the labia in women. These Fordyce spots present a pale, red or white discoloration and feel like a small lump or bump. They resemble rice granules or PPP (Pearly Penile Papules), being a harmless set of growths which are asymptomatic and non-contagious. While they do no present a serious health risk, Fordyce Spots influence our behavior, making us refrain from various social activities and even from our sex life.
Here at the Renew Skin and Health Clinic we have extremely qualified and experienced doctor specialists who can offer their professional view, during a consultation, along with the appropriate Fordyce spots removal private treatment. In most cases, doctors will avoid prescribing treatments in hopes of them disappearing on their own, but some changes have to come into your life to do so, and it will require a very long time, some have had them even for 15 years.
If you wish to avoid surgical procedures, cryotherapy, chemical peels and other invasive or minimally invasive techniques for Fordyce spots removal, know that there are also some alternative treatments involving gels and creams which can help diminish the Fordyce spots.
Tretinoin cream or gel is the most often prescribed alternative treatment and is basically an anti-acne and anti-keratosis concoction which has been discovered to drastically improve the appearance of Fordyce Granules, when combined with alpha hydroxyacid agents. You have to apply this cream or gel once a day on the affected areas.
Isotretinoin is a similar substance which can help diminish Fordyce Spots, but it has various side-effects which are not at all pleasant (headache, urinary problems, rash, nosebleed, dry skin, muscle and joint pains, chapped lips, temporary hair thinning, depression and so on), also it will not help with the complete Fordyce spots removal, having to keep the treatment going for quite some time. This can only be prescribed by a specialist and only in dire cases so you should probably avoid it.
Another possible cream used is Accutane for Fordyce Spots removal. This is one of the most powerful medicines available on the market for acne, having the effect of reducing oil glands. This product also comes with some side effects and one of them is extreme dryness of the skin.
