Sebaceous Hyperplasia

Q: What is sebaceous hyperplasia?

Sebaceous hyperplasia is a condition where sebaceous glands appear in the skin. These glands produce a substance called sebum, which is oily in its consistency. Sebaceous hyperplasia is characterised by yellowish eruptions in the skin, usually in the face.


Q: Are you likely to get sebaceous hyperplasia?

Fair-skinned individuals are more often affected by sebaceous hyperplasia, as well as adults, the middle aged and older.


Q: What are the risks of sebaceous hyperplasia?

There are no health risks. This is a benign condition and only represents a problem aesthetically.


Q: How to treat sebaceous hyperplasia.     

To treat sebaceous hyperplasia, your skin practitioner can use a fine-needle electrocautery, which is a painless procedure that might not even require local numbing injections. Laser treatment is also a viable option.
