Penis whitening laser service

Social media aroused, health authorities disturbed as Thailand pioneers penis whitening laser service

 THAILAND IS probably the first country in the world where services are available to lighten the skin tone of male genitalia.

Health authorities, however, have expressed worry and warned people about possible adverse impacts from such treatments.

“The skin of the private parts is sensitive. Such laser services may cause irritation, allergies and inflammation,” Health Service Support Department deputy director-general Dr Thongchai Keeratihuttayakorn said yesterday.

He added that such services would do more harm than good.

“What if your skin becomes spotted?” he asked rhetorically.

Thongchai said he had never heard of such services being available in other parts of the world.

He also pledged to encourage the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to check if equipment used in such services had already been approved.

“If not, the service provider will be liable for punishment,” he said.

Laser services for skin lightening are nothing new in Thailand. But a social media post about lightening male genitalia has become the talk of the town.

A Facebook user, who goes by the name of "Atittayapa Photiya", posted a message about the services. She described herself as working for the Lelux Hospital.

“New services. Reduce pigmentation. Make penis whiter. No pain. No recuperation needed. Let’s tag people who should do it,” the post said.

The hospital has confirmed that the services are available and insisted that they are not dangerous.

A patient who had used the service said he “loved” laser facial treatments and had been keen to try the service when he found out it was available.

“And I am impressed with the results,” he said on condition of anonymity. “I will complete the programme of five laser treatments.”

According to AFP, Lelux Hospital’s genitalia whitening services have attracted about 100 men a month and they cost around $650 for five sessions.

Urologist Dr Kampanat Pornyoskrai said laser treatments on genitalia might have different results depending on each particular person.

“Usually, the male genitalia is darker than other parts of the body because of androgen,” he said. “No other medicines can change that.”

He said lasers could be used to whiten faces and might work as well for genitalia for some people.

“But before you go for it, study the bad points of laser treatments first,” Kampanat said

Cosmetic clinic fined 20,000 baht for over-advertising penis whitening treatment

The Department of Health Services Support has decided to impose a 20,000-baht fine on a cosmetic surgery clinic in Nonthaburi for over-advertising its penis whitening service with the use of laser technology.

A staff of the clinic in question has posted in a Facebook page the penis whitening treatment with the use of laser, claiming that the treatment process does not cause pain and the patients need not have to be admitted for rest and rehabilitation.  The post was widely shared and went viral in the social media.

Dr Thongchai Kiratihatthayakorn, deputy director-general of Department of Health Service Support, on Friday (Jan 5) dismissed as untrue the claim that laser technology could whiten penis.

Instead, he warned that men who receive the whitening treatment with laser could risk becoming erectile dysfunctional and the treatment could affect their reproductive ability, noting that penis is a very sensitive area and is vulnerable to inflammation if subjected to repeated laser treatment.

He added that laser whitening of the penis would be temporary and the skin colour would return to normal after the treatment.

Accusing the clinic of over-advertising its treatment service, Dr Thongchai said he ordered the clinic being fined 20,000 baht for violating the Health Facility Act and instructed Nonthaburi health officials to ensure that the violation will recur
