The method of removal is straightforward and takes about 15-20 mins per eyelid. It is pain-free thanks to use of numbing and local anaesthetic (so you stay completely awake throughout)
- Special cream applied to numb the area
- Tiny amount of local anaesthetic injected
- The xanthelasma are removed using tiny and precise surgical excision
- The skin is either stitched or left to heal like a graze
