Sebaceous Hyperplasia

At Skin Revision, we can offer advanced treatment options for Sebaceous Hyperplasia, including the use of CryoPen, VeinAway or Plaxel Plasma. All the treatment options effectively treat Sebaceous Hyperplasia Cysts with minimal discomfort and downtime. Here’s how the treatments works:

  1. Consultation: The treatment process begins with a thorough consultation to assess your skin and determine if which treatmentis best for your particular Sebaceous Hyperplasia.
  2. Cryotherapy: The CryoPen device is used to apply a precise, controlled amount of extreme cold (liquid nitrogen) to the sebaceous hyperplasia cyst. The cold temperature freezes and destroys the excess glandular tissue.
  3. VeinAwayIf the Hyperplasia is very small, VeinAway is the preferred option due to its precise heat cauterisation and thermocoagulation processes. The intense burst of heat nullifies the blood supply and cells within the lesion.
  4. Plaxel Plasma: Plasma is heat cauterisation and may work best on the larger Hyperplasia. The “true and real” Plasma nullifies the skin cells causing them to shrink and die off.

What is Sebaceous Hyperplasia?

Sebaceous Hyperplasia is a benign / harmless skin condition characterised by the enlargement of sebaceous glands which can lead to the formation of small, yellowish bumps on the skin. These bumps are benign and typically appear on the face, especially on the forehead and cheeks.

Why and How Sebaceous Hyperplasia Forms

Several factors can contribute to the development of Sebaceous Hyperplasia:

  1. Hormonal changes: Hormonal fluctuations, particularly those related to ageing, can stimulate the Sebaceous glands and lead to Hyperplasia.
  2. Genetic predisposition: Genetics can increase the likelihood of developing Sebaceous Hyperplasia.
  3. Skin type: Individuals with oily skin are more prone to Sebaceous Hyperplasia due to the increased activity of their sebaceous glands.
  4. Sun Exposure: Over exposure to the sun can damage the Sebaceous glands, causing them to grow.

Where is Sebaceous Hyperplasia found? 

Sebaceous hyperplasia primarily affects areas of the skin where sebaceous glands are most abundant. The most common locations for these cysts include the forehead, cheeks and nose, the chest and the upper back.

Aftercare for Sebaceous Hyperplasia treatment

Proper aftercare is essential to ensure the best results and to minimise the risk of complications following CryoPen treatment. Here are the key aftercare steps:

  1. Keep the area clean and dry: For the first few days after treatment, keep the treated area clean and dry to prevent infection.
  2. Avoid picking or scratching: Do not pick or scratch the treated area, as this can interfere with the healing process and increase the risk of scarring.
  3. Protect from sun exposure: Protect the treated area from sun exposure by using a high-SPF sunscreen or covering the area with clothing. Sun exposure can cause pigmentation changes and delay healing.
  4. Monitor Healing: Keep an eye on the treated area for any signs of infection, such as increased redness, swelling, or pus. If you notice any concerning symptoms, contact us at Skin Revision in Bucks, immediately.
