Xanthelasma, also known as Xanthoma, is a skin condition whereby yellow patches appear under the eyes. These patches are as a result of a build-up of cholesterol and other blood lips, due to the levels of these being abnormally high (although Xanthelasma can appear with normal levels of Cholesterol and blood lips also).
This condition is typically found in those of Asian + Mediterranean origin, and is typically found in women more often than men, although men can still get it. As a general guideline, Xanthelasma is usually found in people aged 30+.
Xanthelasma can usually be left untreated, as it does not tend to harm you. However, it will not go away of its own accord, and over the years it will either increase in size, or remain the same. This can be a great stressor for individuals from an aesthetic standpoint, which is why many opt to have them removed. In addition, Xanthelasma can be a good indicator that one can develop heart disease in the future. Therefore, it would be wise to get your Xanthelasma patches examined by a doctor, alongside your cholesterol and blood lipid levels.
We here at Renew Skin & Health Clinic in Leamington Spa have successfully treated many patients for Xanthelasma. However, it must be stressed that in order for the treatment to have long-lasting success, then radical life changes may need to be implemented. This comes in the form of a healthy, balanced diet, alongside a regular cardiovascular program. Failure to address both of these elements, can lead to any treatment losing its effect, and overtime, there could be the potential for a recurrence of Xanthelasma.
