Xanthelasma

They aren’t harmful in anyway but can often cause people to feel self-conscious, hence why many opt for Xanthelasma removal.

We offer quick and easy Xanthelasma removal which leaves little-to-no scarring.

Causes of Xanthelasma

It is not known why Xanthelasma occurs in most people, however a small fraction of people who suffer with Xanthelasma do also have high cholesterol. You are more likely to get these growths if you have:

  • Inherited high cholesterol (your GP might call this familial Hypercholesterolemia)
  • A liver disease called Primary Biliary Cirrhosis, which can also raise cholesterol levels

Treatments Available For Xanthelasma

There are two common methods available:

  • Radiosurgery is our preferred method to get the best results and lowest risk of scarring
  • A Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Laser can be used to vaporise the skin containing the cholesterol deposits, however this is more likely to cause scarring

Surgery to cut out Xanthelasma, or Xanthoma’s is not recommended. We also do not recommend freezing or acid to burn the growths as they return usually very quickly with scarring.
