Xanthelasma removal laser

1 (10)

Xanthelasma is a yellow buff-colored lipid deposit (pale yellow or beige) a deposit of fat underneath, that appears on the eyelid; this may be a sign of hypercholesterolemia or the result of a genetic predisposition unrelated to a cholesterol problem.

POSSIBLE TREATMENTS

2 (9)

Laser CO2 or erbium

These lasers vaporise the lesion until it disappears and cannot be done on tanned skin.
The day of the act it is necessary to come to the cabinet without any makeup on. The prior application of anesthetic cream is necessary.
Local anesthesia can be performed according to each case. Intraocular shells will be placed to protect the eyes.
The laser removes, layer by layer, the skin and the fat that constitutes xanthelasma, up to the muscle.
At the end of the session a healing cream and an antibiotic will be applied until scarring

One session is enough.

A crust forms during the healing phase (which lasts about 10 days). The pink color of the scar will disappear in several months.
Complications are rare: hypo or hyperpigmentations of the treated area; infection; delayed healing.
This act can not be performed on tanned skin.

Laser Q-switched 1064 nm

The principle is to explode the fat particles. I do not like this technique because it often causes hematoma, it is risky and failures are common.
It is necessary to realize 3-4 sessions. An anesthetic cream is applied one hour before and eye shields are placed to protect the eyes.

Testimonials-reviews

I had a wrinkled skin, ultherapy is the adapted solution to avoid resorting to surgery. Doctor Romano knew how to make me feel trustful and I thank her once again.

B. GATLING

I had a xanthelasma on the eyelid close to the nose, I was recommended Doctor Romano and I am absolutely delighted, the result is spectacular.

L. GREEN

I had an apprehension about the pain, the doctor reassured me and in the end, everything went well. I’m satisfied of the result on a ball of fat (xanthelasma apparently) that I had on the eyelid.

E. SIMPSON

I had a xanthelasma on the edge of the eye, I took an appointment with Doctor Romano, she knew how to establish trust, I decided to take the step and I am enchanted with the result. Very pleasant doctor.
