Xanthelasma, Genève

Say goodbye to Xanthelasma stains

Xanthelasma is a yellowish spot on the eyelids due to an accumulated presence of cholesterol and fat in the superficial layers of the skin.


Xanthelasmas can have an unsightly relief located on the upper or lower part of the eyelids, near the nose. They are completely painless. However, they lead to an unsightly look.


Causes / contributing factors

There is often a familial genetic predisposition to xanthelasma.
In this case, it is often associated with hereditary hypercholesterolemia (too much cholesterol in the blood secondary to a genetic cause).

Thus, a blood lipid test is often performed when xanthelasma is treated. Xanthelasma can be removed for aesthetic reasons by laser treatment.


It is carried out using the Plasma technique and the CO2 laser, which will burn the fat cells of the xanthelasma in a gentle and controlled manner. Healing crusts will be present for several days. Sun exposure is to be avoided for one month, and the use of sun protection is needed.

The session is very comfortable due to the application of a local anesthetic. Xanthelasma is removed in 1 to 3 sessions depending on its intensity and location.

Nevertheless, other xanthelasma spots may occur over time, particularly in the eyes, in other locations.
