Xanthelasma Removal Procedure

Xanthelasma removal is a simple, quick and easy treatment. The treatment begins with Dr Maini numbing the area with a drop of anaesthetic solution, which typically stings for about three seconds. The xanthelasma is then gently removed with radiosurgery, which vaporizes the fatty deposits, leaving you with minimal to no scarring.

Xanthelasma Removal Aftercare & Recovery

You will be given clear aftercare instructions by Dr Maini post-Xanthelasma removal and he will be available 24/7 via WhatsApp should you need advice - he will text you regularly to monitor your healing. You should not drive home after the xanthelasma removal so please come to Clinic by public transport or arrange for someone to drive you home. You will be able to work with dark glasses the following day. If this is not possible, you may prefer to take a week off work to enable you to heal. If your lesion is particularly large, healing may take slightly longer.
