Overview of Xanthelasma Removal
Xanthelasma is a medical condition where yellow cholesterol particles are deposited in the eyelid skin. It is not necessarily an indicator of high levels of cholesterol in the blood but can be of cosmetic concern to those affected. Individuals affected by this condition may have a genetic predisposition.
At Medaesthetics™, we routinely treat raised or flat skin lesions such Xanthelasmas, moles, skin tags, milia etc with our diverse array of dermatological laser platforms.
No GP referral is needed. To book your obligation-free consult, please contact us today.
Frequently Asked Questions
Several treatment options are available to improve Xanthelasma:
- Chemical Peels (TCA)
- Surgical excision
- Ablation with an Erbium or CO2 laser
- Removal of xanthelasma with Radio-wave surgery
Treatment of Xanthelasma is a quick and relatively pain-free procedure. The area to be treated is first numbed with a local anaesthetic solution to prevent any discomfort associated with the treatment. Radio-wave, Erbium or Carbon dioxide laser is then used to ablate (evaporate) the xanthelasma down to skin level.
The treated area remains red and slightly swollen for a few days. Most patients heal within 5 to 10 days.
It is possible for xanthelasma to return in the same area or another area even after treatment. This is one of the main reasons why we do not advocate surgical removal of the xanthelasma as it can leave a scar and further surgical excisions may end up in excess skin removal.
With laser or radio-wave, the treatment can be repeated without the removal of skin.
Treatment of Xanthelasma starts from $350 for a small lesion and may cost up to $1200 for more extensive lesions.
