Sebaceous Hyperplasia shows itself in the form of small, painless bumps which can be white, yellow, pink or skin-coloured. One easy way to identify them is to look for a central depression or dimple within the bump.

The condition mainly occurs on oily skin types, but we do sometimes see it on people with other skin types, especially after the client concerned has recently returned from a holiday in warmer climes!  Sebaceous Hyperplasia can appear singularly or in multiple occurrences and is often found in areas where there are more oil glands – such as the forehead, chin or chest.

Treating Sebaceous Hyperplasia with Thermolysis

A Thermolysis current is delivered using a very fine needle to cauterise the surface of the blemish. This removes it both quickly and with very little down time. People tend to describe the treatment as no more than mildly uncomfortable, with some small, dry, crusty marks remaining afterwards. Don’t let this alarm you – they’ll be gone within take 7 to10 days.

A 15 to 30 minute session will usually be necessary, depending on the number of blemishes that need to be treated. We’ll discuss this with you when you come to our Leeds clinic for a consultation with your Bellissima Exclusive therapist, prior to treatment.

Before Sebaceous Hyperplasia Treatment

The area of skin where you will receive your Sebaceous Hyperplasia Reduction Treatment should be clear, with no irritation or scabs, so avoid any picking or squeezing of the blemishes prior to treatment.

After Sebaceous Hyperplasia Treatment

The area may show some degree of erythema (redness) and oedema (swelling) immediately after treatment, but this will subside over 24 to 48 hours. You should expect some small crusts to form – these naturally seal the skin and prevent infection, so you please make sure you don’t pick them.
