Bumps Under Eyes (In Tear Trough)

I am 29 years old and have these weird bumps under my eyes. I went to the dermatologist and she said that they were sweat glands that were visible because I had thin skin under my eyes. She said there was nothing that could be done and "no one would notice them." They really bother me and I'm wondering if a laser or possible filler would make them go away?

Bumps under eyelids, avoid fillers

The bumps you show with the photograph, are similar to what we see often as benign (non-cancerous) sweat gland enlargements called, syringoma.  These sweat glands can be flattened slightly by concentrated focal chemical peel applied with a pointed "toothpick" using the CROSS technique, or by electrodessciation (electrical current). These are not permanent cures. The bumps will probably come back as they regrow.Surgical resection is not a wise choice for you as the bumps are minimal.

White bumps are syringomas under the eyes

These white bumps on the cheek and lower eyelid are syringomas and can be eliminated with a combination of hyfrecation and fractional co2 laser.

Hi J,

I have treated syringoma with Fraxel repair laser with excellent results.  Consult with a physician who uses fractionated CO2 lasers.  Good luck and be well.
