How to get rid of sebaceous hyperplasia?

Sunday, March 17, 2019 - 7:42pm

Sebaceous hyperplasia is a common, benign condition of sebaceous glands in adults of middle age or older. It’s a harmless skin disorder of the sebaceous (oil) glands, where the sebaceous gland becomes enlarged. These harmless bumps often appear soft, yellowish in colour with a cauliflower-like or donut-shaped appearance ranging in size from 2 to 3mm. They usually appear on the forehead and cheeks in fair-skinned people who have dealt with oily or combination skin over the years.

Sebaceous hyperplasia is believed to be caused by an age-related decrease in the levels of androgen hormones, genetics, history of acne, sun damage and immunosuppression may also be cofactors in causing sebaceous hyperplasia. In my clinic, I use the Skin Classic to gently deliver heat energy directly to the clogged oil glands without disrupting the skin around it.
