Sebaceous hyperplasia is the term used for enlarged sebaceous glands seen on the forehead or cheeks of the middle-aged and elderly. Sebaceous hyperplasia appears as small yellow bumps up to 3 mm in diameter which are usually painless and do not itch.

Even if this skin condition is benign and represents no threat to one’s health, you might want to have it treated due to the serious unaesthetic effects. Many people develop anxiety episodes and depression due to the impact of the skin condition on their looks.

Sebaceous Hyperplasia is a common skin condition which appears usually on the face, neck and chest, mainly where there are more sebaceous glands. It represents an aesthetic issue before anything else therefore at Renew Skin & Health Clinic many people opt for removal treatments performed by the best cosmetic specialists.

At our clinic the most efficient treatment for removing the sebaceous hyperplasia bumps is the electrodesiccation by blade-free radiosurgery, a procedure which consists in the application of radio waves on the targeted area. This procedure is highly recommended due to its efficiency, lack of scarring and pain.

There are other ways of treating a sebaceous hyperplasia case, such as natural remedies, chemical treatments, surgery and the usage of certain creams.

Besides radiosurgery, which is the best choice when it comes to sebaceous hyperplasia treatments, there are the photodynamic therapy, cryotherapy, cauterization, topical chemical treatment, laser treatment, shave excision and classic excision. These alternative methods of removing the unpleasant looking bumps might be suited to different states of the condition therefore is best to ask for medical guidance and advice before deciding over a certain kind of treatment.

For example, surgical sebaceous hyperplasia removal treatments might successfully eliminate the big bumps of the condition but will also leave behind visible scars.
