Xanthelasma is usually harmless but can be unsightly. The good news is that it can be treated effectively without surgery.
Xanthelasma appears yellowish in colour and the spots vary in size. They can span all around the eyes, including the eyelid or even the corners of the eyes. They do not cause any physical pain but since they occur on the face and cause disfiguration, the skin condition can cause mental anguish and social embarrassment.
Even though Xanthelasma could point to an underlying health problem, the cholesterol deposits themselves aren’t harmful. Still, you might want to remove them for cosmetic reasons and fortunately you have options.
At Cosmetic Elegance Clinic we can treat Xanthelasma with our Erbium Yag Ablative Laser. We remove it layer by layer until it’s gone. As the skin heals, all that’s left is healthy new skin - and no cholesterol deposits. It will take a week or two to heal.
Having Xanthelasma removed is quite simple and can be life-changing. Book a consultation with Dr Eddie Roos from Cosmetic Elegance Clinic to discuss your condition and treatment. Call us on 4638 2700.
