Sebaceous hyperplasia are small yellowish soft plaques or papules that develop on the face and occasionally the mouth, chest, and areola. Sebaceous hyperplasia typically occurs on the nose, cheeks and forehead where oil glands are larger and more prominent. The condition is common and benign. Those most likely to develop sebaceous hyperplasia are middle age and older adults with oily skin.
Sebaceous hyperplasia may look like whiteheads but they do not respond to acne treatments and cannot be squeezed and extracted. The most effective treatment for sebaceous hyperplasia offered here at Caliope Skin Center Peoria, IL. At Caliope Skin Center we treat sebaceous hyperplasia with our Skin Classic High Frequency Treatment.
The Skin Classic Treatment treats minor skin irregularities such as sebaceous hyperplasia, telangiectasia (broken capillaries), spider naevi, cherry angiomas, fibromas, skin tags, hyperpigmentation, milia, cholesterol deposits and acne pimples. Skin Classic Treatments are quick and may not even touch the surface of the skin. Small skin tags or blood spots disappear immediately and hyperpigmented areas such as liver or age spots take only a few seconds. A small probe is used to barely touch the skin which vaporizes and dries the affected area creating very small crusts that heal and flake off in 3 to 15 days. Clients describe their pain level as a 1-3 on a scale of 1-10 and liken the sensation to a very quick stinging which dissipates quickly when the probe is lifted - the probe never pierces the skin. Skin Classic Treatments are very specific and efficient for treating minor skin irregularities with very little down time. Schedule your complementary consultation today to discuss your treatment.
