How to remove syringomas permanently?
I am a 24 year female with lots of syringomas under my eyes, and at the neck. I have previously tried multiple sessions of C02 laser and microneedling with no improvement. How can I get rid of them successfully?
Presuming that it is syringoma, I believe you know by now that syringoma is a benign growth from the sweat gland. Did it grow back again after CO2 or it did not improve at all?
If it did not reduce at all after laser, you might need to burn it deeper. Although CO2 laser helps to vapourise it, it may regrow again, unfortunately.
Some find that the result may last longer if we burn deeper but it also increases the risk of scarring as a result of excessive burnt, especially if you mentioned that you have a lot of it.
Microneedling is not useful and there is no point doing it again.
Have a proper assessment to be sure that it is syringoma.
In the meantime, have a great weekend and keep smiling!
This must be really troubling for you - seeing no improvement despite multiple sessions of co2 laser and microneedling.
Syringomas can be removed with CO2 lasers. When performed by a skilled doctor, there will be improvement after CO2 lasers. Usually, more than 1 session might be needed to ensure removal. However, it might regrow back.
Unfortunately, microneedling is the wrong treatment for syringoma removal.
Please seek an expert for more medical advice on this issue!
Hope that this helps!
