Fractional CO2 Laser Treatment for Removal of Stubborn Syringomas

syr

Several patients come in for removal of Syringoma.  Syringoma are benign sweat duct tumors usually seen around the eyelids.  They are skin-colored to whitish-yellowish papules that have a genetic and female predilection. 


 
First line of treatment is usually to destroy these sweat duct tumors using Electrocautery (Electrodessication and curretage).  However, these unsightly skin lesions don’t go out without a fight, oftentimes recurring and are quite difficult to eradicate with just one session.  It can also cause scarring and pigmentation from the ECT procedure.


 
Another option to effectively remove syringomas is to use CO2 laser technology with less risk of scarring.  After an hour of topical anesthesia, the CO2 laser more precisely targets the tumors.  Based on some studies, CO2 laser is a safe and effective method of removing stubborn syringomas without scar formation.  Pain is quite minimal with most patients experiencing no pain at all.


 
So if you have stubborn syringomas, consider having CO2 laser.  At Shinagawa, we are proud to be the only clinic who uses the laser DEKA CO2 laser made in Italy.

    Hi Bea,

    Fractional C02 Laser can remove syringoma, but not permanently. This is because syringoma is a condition in which we acquired genetically. There are cases that after the treatment, the skin condition returned after 2 years.

      Hi Mel,

      One session is unlimited for a certain area like the face. Though, it is best to visit our clinic so our aesthetic doctors can personally check it and quote a price. The healing process would take 1-2 weeks.

      When will you be available to visit us?

      Best Regards,

      Mona
