Treatment of periorbital syringoma

1 (5)

Syringomas are benign small skin tumors derived from the excretory duct of the eccrine sweat glands, present on the whole skin.  There are two varieties of syringoma:

  • The syringomas of the eyelids, small pinkish white papules, located at the level of the eyelids. They are more common among Asian women.
  • Eruptive syringomas of the thorax, small rosy papules more or less itchy.

A small needle is placed on the lesion, an electric current is released in the syringoma allowing its destruction. The advantage of this technique is its precision, it is a selective treatment of the lesion without damaging the surrounding tissues. This is the treatment I use the most.

Anesthetic cream is applied to the office for the comfort of the patient. The disappearance of syringoma is immediate. The healing takes about a week, during which there will be a makeup redness and small edema. The final result is obtained in three months, small surface irregularities can persist the first time. The result and after effects are therefore light.

Ablative laser, CO2 or erbium

The ablative laser allows the lesion to be sprayed out. It is necessary to use a laser which allows a cold ablation, that is to say a pure ablation without heat. I like this technique, which is a little less painful than electrocoagulation, but often the lesions are too small, smaller than the diameter of the laser beam. The skin is bright for a few days, redness and swelling last about a week. The final result is obtained in three months, small surface irregularities may persist the first time.

Dry snow

Highly used in dermatology, dry ice allows the selective removal of lesions. The skin is raw immediately after. The suites are similar to those of the laser treatment although they are lighter. Makeup can be applied 3-4 days following the treatment.

Medium peel (chemical or laser)

When fine lines and sagging skin of the eyelid are associated and or visibile, and the patient wishes an improvement of such components, thus, a medium peel can be adviced and achieved. A chemical or laser ablation is performed at the level of the entire lower eyelid, to the middle dermis. The consequences/ result are more important, with a social eviction/ down time of about a week, then a pinkish color of the skin persists for a few months.

Combination of TCA and  CO2 laser

Recent studies associate these two treatments, personally I find the combination risky, side effects are possible.

After attempting different treatments with other doctors, I consulted Doctor Romano for small lumps in the eyelid area. Perfect result, thank you, I will only consult you now Doctor.


I had many small white lumps on my eyelids. Doctor Romano told me they were syringes. Seeing her professionalism and her gentle and caring attitude, I asked her to remove them. Great result.


I feel better because Doctor Romano removed my syringomes. I’m delighted.


I had small lumps at the level of the skin of my lower eyelids. Doctor Romano’s fairy hands went through here, the result is amazing, as usual.
