Cholesterol Spots

Xanthelasma are lumpy, yellowish bumps which usually appear on or around the eyelids. 

These raised areas are a buildup of cholesterol deposits. They are not considered medically harmful in themselves, but can be an indicator of high cholesterol, as around half the cases of xanthelasma relate to high blood cholesterol.

Anyone can get xanthelasma, but it is more common in females and patients who are middle aged or older. It is also more common among those from Asian or Mediterranean descent.

If you have xanthelasma, it is important to firstly recognise any dietary causes and if your diet is high in cholesterol, then a move to a healthier diet will reduce your risk of developing cholesterol deposits around the eyes. A healthy diet means reducing fat and increasing intake of vegetables, fruit and salad. For most people, it also means increasing protein and reducing sugar/carbohydrates. If you have any worries about diet or other associated health risks such as elevated cholesterol, diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity or heart disease, then do see a GP to discuss your concerns.

Treating Xanthelasma

Even with dietary changes, xanthelasma tend not to go away of their own accord but instead to continue slowly growing.

They can be unsightly and some patients are quite concerned about their appearance.

The NHS consider xanthelasma to be a ‘cosmetic’ issue as they are not medically harmful. This means that treatment on the NHS is unlikely.

This is a specialist procedure which is not widely available in normal private skin clinics.

However, it is available at Cosmedics Skin Clinics based in London.

I cannot believe the difference in my laser hair removal treatment under my chin caused by PCOS. I’m only on my fourth treatment out of six and I feel so much better, it’s as if there is no hair at all. My confidence is coming back! Thank you so much to Lydia for contributing so much to this! The reception team have always been lovely and accommodating. Thanks Cosmedics Skin Clinics UK.

Highly recommend Dr Perry. Had botox and fillers and the results are amazing. He is very informative and explains everything before he does the treatment. Will definitely be returning for future treatments.

Had a shave excision done with Dr Vardy twice so far - both were effortless and I’m so pleased with the result. She takes the time to explain everything and made me feel at ease. Won’t see anyone else for this procedure in the future!
