Sebaceous Hyperplasia

Sebaceous hyperplasia is a benign and common skin condition that affects the oil glands in the skin. This skin condition appears as tiny yellow or skin-colored bumps on the forehead and cheeks. Although the cause of sebaceous hyperplasia is unknown, it is seen more often in lighter-skinned individuals and those with sun exposure. Because sebaceous hyperplasia is a harmless condition, treatment isn't necessary. However, if it bothers you cosmetically, here are a few treatment options to consider: (1) Laser therapy. Different laser treatments are available to eliminate or flatten sebaceous hyperplasia. (2) Peels. Chemical peels performed monthly can be an effective treatment of sebaceous hyperplasia. (3) Sunscreen. Sun exposure can play a significant role in the formation of sebaceous hyperplasia. Therefore, daily sun protection is a must.
