Sebaceous Hyperplasia is a condition that shows itself as one or more small bumps. People who are prone to oily skin most commonly encounter Sebaceous Hyperplasia, though it can affect people of all skin types.
The bumps which characterise Sebaceous Hyperplasia may be white, pink, yellowish or no different in tone to the surrounding skin. If you’re unsure whether you have the condition, look for a depressed, dimple-like area in the centre of each bump.
Sebaceous Hyperplasia can appear as a single small bump or a series of bumps. It’s commonly seen on the chin, forehead or chest, all areas of the body close to oily glands.
The treatment doesn’t hurt. Instead, my clients often report nothing more than a slight feeling of discomfort. You’ll probably see some small marks where the blemish was previously located. Dry and crusty in texture, they will be gone in no more than 7 to 10 days.
Depending on how extensive the area to be treated may be, your appointment could last anything from 15 to 30 minutes.
After your treatment has finished
It’s quite possible that you’ll notice a little swelling immediately after Sebaceous Hyperplasia Reduction Treatment. The area we’ve treated may also appear redder than usual. All of this is normal and will go away within a day or two. During this time some scabs may form, but this is also nothing to worry about – just the skin’s own way of preventing infection. Simply leave them to come away on their own.
Aftercare will be discussed during the consultation and after each treatment.
Disclaimer: Before each treatment a medical questionnaire and consent form will need to be completed. I cannot guarantee the results of treatments. These will differ on an individual basis, with likely effectiveness to be discussed during the initial consultation. Permanence of results is not guaranteed.
