Xanthelasms are small yellowish swellings that form in the eyelids area, generally close to the nose: they are flat or slightly swollen patches, caused by the accumulation of fat in the skin, which move from blood vessels to tissues. They are therefore a symptom of cardiovascular diseases, in which fats, in particular cholesterol, accumulate plasma: this is why, before proceeding to the removal of the Xanthelasms, the surgeon visit the patient thoroughly, checking his/her general health conditions. There are various ways to reduce Xanthelasms: the most common is CO2 laser, a minimally invasive technique that destroys lesions, vaporizing and photocoagulating tissues, and operates without leaving marks or scars.
