Syringoma removal in Singapore
While laser treatment is a popular option used to remove syringomas, many of them are ineffective and most importantly, run the risk of scarring and damaging the surrounding skin.
At Veritas, syringoma is removed safely and effectively with the use of AGNES RF. AGNES is a radio-frequency treatment which uses micro-insulated needles of varying depths to precisely target inflamed follicles that give rise to syringoma without damaging the skin’s epidermis.
Other methods of removal such as using the CO2 laser to ablate the syringoma can cause unnecessary damage to the surrounding skin, and will not be able to treat syringoma permanently without targeting follicles. While a popular option, laser removal is not recommended for syringoma removal.
Syringomas can be completely removed. Our doctors will also advise you on how to prevent new syringomas from forming.
Consultation with our doctor who will confirm if the lumps and bumps on your skin are really syringomas. A physical assessment is done to rule out conditions with similar symptoms.
A topical numbing is applied to the treated area to minimise any discomfort during the procedure.
A small electric current is introduced into these bumps via insulated needles. Depending on the size of the syringoma, the procedure takes approximately 15-30 minutes.
