Xanthelasma, or xanthelasma palpebrarum (XP), is a harmless, yellow growth that appears on or by the corners of your eyelids next to your nose. Cholesterol deposits build up under your skin to form a xanthelasma.

Having xanthelasmas could be a sign of another condition, such as:

  • Diabetes.
  • Hyperlipidemia (high cholesterol).
  • Thyroid problems.

Researchers have found that having xanthelasmas means it’s very likely that you’ll have these conditions in the future:

  • Heart disease.
  • Heart attack.
  • Atherosclerosis (even if your cholesterol levels are normal).
  • High cholesterol.

Who does xanthelasma affect?

Half of the people with xanthelasmas have high cholesterol levels. Healthcare providers usually see these levels in people with the kind of high cholesterol you get from your parents or some liver diseases.

However, the other 50% of people with xanthelasmas don’t have high cholesterol.

Risk factors for xanthelasma include being assigned female at birth or having:

  • Overweight.
  • A tobacco product habit.
  • High cholesterol.
  • Diabetes.
  • High blood pressure.
  • Family history of high cholesterol or xanthelasma.

You can get xanthelasmas between ages 20 and 70. Most people get them between ages 35 and 55.

How common is xanthelasma?

Xanthelasmas are the most common type of xanthoma (cholesterol deposits) that affect your skin. However, only about 1% of people have xanthelasmas.

What tests will be done to diagnose xanthelasma?

A xanthelasma diagnosis doesn’t require tests, but your healthcare provider may want to check your:

  • Cholesterol levels to check for high cholesterol.
  • Thyroid function to see if you have a thyroid problem.
  • Blood sugar to find out if you have diabetes.
  • Liver function to find out if you have liver disease.

How are xanthelasmas removed?

Although xanthelasmas don’t hurt you, you may want to remove them anyway. Xanthelasma removal methods include:

  • Laser surgery.
  • Radiofrequency ablation (sometimes with stitches afterward).
  • Hyfrecator1000

These xanthelasma treatments usually work. However, you may need several sessions to remove your xanthelasmas.

Xanthelasmas often come back after removal, no matter which treatment you get. The chance of recurrence can be lowered if you work with your doctor on lowering your cholesterol.

Side effects of the treatment

Side effects from removing xanthelasmas include:

  • Skin color changes.
  • Scars.
  • Pain.
  • Eyelid turning inside out or looking like it’s getting pulled in further toward your eye.

How long does it take to recover from this treatment?

It can take three or four days to recover from xanthelasma treatment, depending on which treatment you get. Some side effects go away in days, while others (like skin discoloration) take a couple of months to go away.

Do you give 100% guarantee?

No doctor can give 100% guarantee that the treatment or surgery would be beneficial for the patient. For that matter, no guarantee is given by any doctor or surgeon that the patient would be "cured".

Anyone considering a cosmetic procedure should ensure they are informed enough to understand the limitations and risks of any procedure. Remember, no procedure is 100% risk free and no surgeon can give a 100% guarantee of the results.

The only assurance which a doctor can give or can be understood to have given by implication is that he is possessed of the requisite skill in that branch of profession which he is practicing and while undertaking the performance of the task entrusted to him he would be exercising his skill with reasonable competence.

Unless the circumstances are exceptional, it is advisable to avoid surgery if you have recently experienced major life events such as moving house, changing job, losing a loved one, the break-up of a relationship or the arrival of children. Undergoing cosmetic surgery results in emotional changes as well as physical ones, so it’s wise to choose a time when there aren’t other stressful events going on in your life.

How many sessions do I require?

The healthier your skin/hair are when starting out, the easier it will take the treatment. The sessions must be spaced to allow adequate healing in between. Skin/Hair that are healthy enough to regenerate fairly quickly will be able to endure more sessions of a treatment in a shorter period of time.

While these aren’t the only factors involved, they are the most common. Don’t be surprised, however, if your doctor mentions another situation that could impact the length and/or number of sessions you may require. Every person is different, and your circumstances will be unique only to YOU.
