Sebaceous Hyperplasia

Sebaceous Hyperplasia is the term used for enlarged sebaceous glands found on the forehead and cheeks. They appear as small yellow bumps up to 3mm in diameter. Close inspection reveals a central hair follicle surrounded by yellowish lobules, and often prominent blood vessels are present.

Who is affected by sebaceous hyperplasia?

This condition affects the middle-aged and elderly. It may also be more prevalent in immunosuppressed patients, for example following an organ transplant.

What causes sebaceous hyperplasia?

This is a form of benign hair follicle tumour, and is harmless.

Required treatment

Milia can be easily removed from all over the body using advanced electrolysis. We recommend the Spear or F2020 probe.
