Treatment of syringomas of the eyelids and eyes
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
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.
