Syringoma are common benign harmless tumors which are often seen below lower eyelids and cheeks. Although, there are several treatment options available for syringoma, treatment is often not satisfactory. We should understand that despite any treatment, they can return back.
Among the several treatment options lasers treatment are widely being popular these days. Lasers like Erbium laser resurfacing, Co2 laser resurfacing, fractional lasers and few others have been used with some success. Most of the doctor use combination of laser therapy with other modalities like hyfrecation and fractional CO2 lasers, which dermatologist agree on its success.
Hyfrecation is cheaper and better options even used as single therapy. Side effects are fewer than other therapies. The hyfrecator is used to rapidly and selectively destroy the syringoma by the passage of an electric current through the tip of the hyfrecator as it touches the skin. This will burn off the syringoma. This may be treated without anaesthesia, although local topical anaesthesia is the best option.
Unfortunately there is no cure for syringoma, so whatever the treatment options are used, additional treatments may be required in the near future. If done with a experienced dermatologist hyfrecation offers cheap and effective way of removing the syringoma.
