Xanthelasma are small, yellowish plaques that occur around the eyes. Although xanthelasma are a cosmetic concern, they can be evidence of underlying systemic issues therefore, labwork is required to evaluate for diabetes, thyroid, and cardiovascular disease.
At Advanced Dermatology we use a CO2 laser to improve the appearance of xantehlasma. This is especially effective for xanthelasmas in the lower eyelid and younger individuals.
There are advantages to treating xanthelasma with CO2. CO2 laser treatment is a safe option, especially for the delicate skin around the eyes. The precision of the laser allows for targeted treatment with minimal impact on surrounding tissues.
One of the significant concerns with any cosmetic treatment is the potential for visible scars. With CO2 laser therapy, the
risk of noticeable scarring is significantly reduced.
Lastly, CO2 laser treatment offers a longer lasting solution to treating xanthelasma with fewer recurrences. This means that once you undergo the procedure, you can enjoy the results for an extended period.
If you’ve been contemplating addressing xanthelasma or other cosmetic concerns, CO2 laser therapy is a cutting-edge solution worth considering. As your dedicated dermatologist, I am here to guide you through every step of the process, ensuring you feel confident and informed.
