Xanthalasma Removal

Xanthelasma are large, yellow deposits of cholesterol that occur around the eye region. While they do not necessarily indicate high levels of cholesterol, they can certainly reduce an individual’s self-esteem. Due to their raised nature, they can also be difficult to cover with makeup. Thankfully, there are minor procedures available to remove xanthelasma.

How Does Xanthelasma
Removal Work?

At Skinnotion, we use our Surgitron RF to skilfully and precisely remove xanthelasma. Surgitron is an advanced device that utilises ultra-high-frequency technology to cut through lesions with fine precision, leaving extremely minimal damage to the surrounding tissue. This process is not only less damaging to the skin than traditional surgical incisions, but leaves less (often zero) bruising, swelling, scarring or other complications, and quick recovery time. It works on the principle of radio-vaporisation by attracting liquids to the probes being used. These probes are used to slice flat across the base of the lesions with intricate precision, removing the raised mass and making it flush with the skin. Numbing is applied prior, ensuring that there is minimal discomfort. Your downtime is expected to last only a few days.

Can Xanthelasma Return
After Removal?

Unfortunately, xanthelasma can return after it has been removed. This is why we choose to perform xanthelasma removal with Surgitron RF as opposed to traditional surgical methods, in order to mitigate the chance of scarring and leaving the skin healthy and unharmed in the event that further treatment in the same area is required. Your treating physician will guide you through potential lifestyle changes which may help to prevent recurrence.
