DxD Admin from Singapore asked a question

Does tretinoin cream help to reduce syringomas below my eyes?

Aesthetic Medicine

I am using tretinoin prescribed by my dermatologist for anti ageing purposes. In the long term, can it help to reduce syringomas which i have several below my eyes? Thanks.

Hello JJ,

Thank you for your question! Tretinoin can indeed help improve the syringomas because of their keratolytic (skin peeling) effects. They may not completely resolve however, and may require prolonged used before any results are visible.

Since the lower eyelids have very thin skin, they might be very dry and sensitive as well. I would recommend starting a lower concentration first, before moving it up as prescribed by your doctor.

All the best!

Dear JJ

yes it does! some people choose tretinoin cream some choose adalapene but both have good effects on syringomas (as a maintenance). but the serious ones should first be treated with ablative lasers, maintained with the creams and avoid particularly heavy products over the prone-areas
