The procedure

What’s Involved

Xanthelasma removal Leeds is a procedure aimed at safely eliminating yellowish cholesterol deposits that typically appear on the eyelids. The treatment involves using various techniques such as laser therapy, cryotherapy, or surgical excision, depending on the size and location of the xanthelasma. These methods effectively target and remove the deposits while minimising the risk of scarring or damage to surrounding tissue. Following the procedure, patients can expect smoother and clearer eyelids, restoring both aesthetics and comfort. It’s essential to consult with a qualified dermatologist or cosmetic surgeon to determine the most suitable approach for individual needs and ensure optimal results.

Key Considerations

Treatment Duration

The duration of xanthelasma removal can vary depending on factors such as the size and number of lesions. Generally, a single session may take anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour. Multiple sessions might be required for complete removal, spaced several weeks apart to allow for healing and assessment of results.

Type Of Anaesthesia

We use local anesthesia in the form of eye drops to numb the treatment area. Additionally, for patients who feel excessively anxious or stressed about the procedure, we can administer a sedative through an intravenous injections.

Aftercare Requirements

Keep the area clean, apply prescribed ointments, and avoid makeup. Use pain relievers and cold compresses to manage discomfort. Protect the area from sun exposure, avoid touching or scratching, and stay hydrated. 

Back To Work (Recovery)

Most people can return to work within a few days after Xanthelasma removal. Ensure the area stays clean, avoid strenuous activities that may cause sweating, and follow all our aftercare instructions.
