Xanthelasma palpebrarum are deposits of fat and cholesterol, yellow in color, formed under the skin around the eyelids. They are asymptomatic and harmless but these yellow growths can greatly affect facial presentation. Most individuals prefer to have them removed for cosmetic reasons. The condition can affect both men & women and is more common in people older than 40 years of age.What are the causes of xanthelasma palpebrarum ?
The cause of xanthelasma palpebrarum is raised cholesterol levels in the blood stream of the patient. Some associated causes are listed below:
The best treatment option for xanthelasma palpebrerum removal is CO2 laser. This is very precise and accurate. The procedure is done under local anaesthesia and is painless. The wound generally heals within a week and the scab usually falls in 10 days. Initially the skin can have slight depigmentation but gradually it merges very well with the skin colour. In most of the cases it can be removed in just one session. However, in very few, a touch up session might be required.
In some patients we use TCA application to remove the xanthelasma palpebrarum. Usually, it is applied 4-5 times at fortnightly intervals to remove it.
Xanthelasma palpebrarum can also be removed by surgery. The skin is stitched after removal of the fat deposit and because the skin of eyelids is very elastic, it generally heals without leaving any scar
