Xanthelasma is the accumulation of fat under the skin. It is more common in women than men and in people with hypercholesterolemia but can occur in people with normal cholesterol levels. It most commonly affects the area around the eyes. In severe cases, it can grow enough to cause vision impairment.
Treatment depends on the severity of the case. Dr. Abi Akl can use the laser or cryosurgery or minor surgery to remove it.
During your consultation, Dr. Abi Akl will answer all your concerns and explain to you every step of the procedure and what to expect on the short and long term. You will be given detailed instructions to follow before and after your procedure.
If you are interested in xanthelasma treatment, schedule a virtual or clinical appointment or call our office.
