I treat all syringomas with a combination of hyfrecation and selective fractional co2 laser. This works well for Asian, Caucasian, and Black skin.

Syringoma can be treated with fine needle hyfrecation

+1

I have treated syringomata for years with a fine needle hyfrecator.  I have an office in Walnut Creek, CA.  Typically, I will have the patient pick up some topical anesthetic cream from a local pharmacy (LMX cream).  They should apply it 1 hour prior to their appointment so the area is numb.  I then use a small electric needle to "zap" the syringomata.  This usually improves their appearance.  However, they can recur and new ones can form.  I do not recommend treating with lasers.
