Syringomas

Syringomas are benign skin spots that arise from the drainage ducts of sweat glands in your skin. The benign bumps usually do not cause any symptoms, but someone who has them often experiences them as cosmetically disturbing. They look like small, yellowish or skin-coloured bumps. Often there are several bumps together and usually in the face. There, they are mainly found under the eyes, the upper part of the cheeks, or on the lower eyelid.

It is unknown what causes syringomas. It often develops during puberty, usually in girls/women. It is probably linked to hormones. Syringomas often occur in several people within one family, so the hereditary factor also plays a role.

During the electro coagulation treatment, an electric current is sent via a fine needle to the benign skin spot, which is then heated and destroyed.A numbing cream can be used as a pre-treatment; this is especially recommended for larger areas or areas that are more difficult to treat, such as around the eye.

In cryotherapy, the skin spots are treated selectively by freezing the tissue. The aim of this therapy is to make the skin smoother and more even, and the spots become less visible or disappear. The skin then heals without scarring.
