Syringomas are small, flat-topped bumps that form on your skin. They may actually look like pimples that never pop or flat warts, and you might confuse them for either. These are benign and are typically found on the upper cheeks, lower eyelids and even the upper lids. Although Syringomas are harmless, these tiny bumps can be a big issue. Makeup can cover up discoloration, but it can’t conceal raised areas of the skin, so you probably have had difficulty covering up your Syringomas. But don’t be disheartened. Dr. Schultz is one of the few dermatologists with the experience and skill to treat Syringomas. With Dr. Schultz’s effective and painless treatments, the smooth, bump-free skin you lost can again be all yours.
You may have never heard of Syringomas before developing them yourself, but Dr. Schulz says, “Syringomas are a common problem. This condition is not particular to any racial or ethnic group. Anybody can have them.” Syringomas look like a tiny plateau, wider than they are tall. They very simply are an enlargement of the duct coming out of the sweat gland. The condition creates tiny, firm bumps about one to three millimeters wide. They usually grow in small groups or clusters in either white, yellow, brown, or pale pink, skin-toned colors. Interestingly enough, they seem to form symmetrically across the face. So if you develop them under your right eyelid, you may also develop them under your left. Most of the people affected by Syringomas develop them for the first time in their late twenties, but if untreated, they persist.
