A skin condition with an unfamiliar and rather alarming sounding name, Syringomas are actually harmless benign tumours. Tiny in size – no more than 3mm in diameter – they’re often formed by an excessive growth of cells in the sweat ducts. Syringoma is often mistaken for Millia, but unlike that condition they are composed of soft tissue rather than harder keratin.

Perhaps the most familiar site for Syringomas is under the eye, where they often appear as vaguely cream-coloured bumps.

Before treatment can begin, it’s important that you attend a brief consultation with your Electrologist. This is to ensure that Syringomas really are present, rather than some other skin condition which has a similar appearance.

The treatment may cause a mild discomfort and a little swelling during the process, with the formation of small scabs, but all of this is quite normal and will clear up within a couple of weeks.

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 initial consultation. Permanence of results is not guarantee.
