Does Anyone Offer or Know a Doctor Who Offers Intralesional Electrodesiccation for Syringomas in the California Area?

I heard that this is one of the best treatments for syringoma. But I can not find a doctor who offers it in california. Does anyone here offer it or know anything about it. If not, how would I go about finding a doctor that offers this procedure?

Meticulous hyfrecation followed by light interval fractional CO2 laser can be used to improve syringomas and keep them away.

Most dermatologists use electrodesiccation

Most cosmetic and non-cosmetic dermatologists perform this for a variety of conditions.  I would recommend inquiring as to which one uses the fine electrolysis needle tip for their fine electrocautery procedures.

I cannot speak for other subspecialists.
