Xanthelasma (also known as xanthelasma palpebra) is a well-circumscribed flat or slightly elevated yellowish growth that typically occurs on or around the eyelids. It is made up of cholesterol deposits (plaques) that accumulate underneath the skin
How we treat xanthelasma
We use Plasma ablation to remove the plaques. This allows us to melt away the fat and cauterise the skin and tiny vessels all in one go. The treatment is comfortable as we numb you prior.
How many treatments will I need?
In most cases one treatment is enough to fully remove or reduce the plaques enough for client satisfaction.
Will they return?
In most instances clients remain plaque free long term or have years without the plaques. Sometimes the plaques may return, usually at the same rate they appeared in the first place this is often due to cholesterol, medical or hereditary issues.
Will I scar?
With all soft surgical treatments there is the chance of scaring. Our method of removal is safe and unlikely to scar.
