Sebaceous Gland Hyperplasia
Moles, Spots, and Growths
Sebaceous gland hyperplasia presents as small cream-to-yellow colored papules located, most notably, on the face. They represent the overgrowth of oil glands in the skin but are not precursors to any skin malignancy. They can however clinically mimic skin cancer and need to be properly diagnosed!
Even if not a danger, sebaceous hyperplasia can be of understandable cosmetic concern to certain patients. It can effectively be treated with a number of cosmetic procedures including minor surgery, liquid nitrogen freezing, and, most effectively, with laser therapy.
For more information on the cosmetic treatment of these lesions, we would be happy to see you in consultation. Please contact us for a prompt appointment with Dr. Kormeili.

What our patients are saying:
I had rosacea that caused redness and broken vessels on my face. Dr. Kormeili addressed all of my concerns and set about fixing the redness. I was super excited after my first laser treatment as the improvement was immediately noticeable. The second laser treatment made me look and feel amazing…
I had really bad psoriasis on my scalp that flaked all over my clothes, and it was so embarrassing to sit on board meetings in a black suite with white flakes. My entire attention was on my flakes, and worried what people were thinking when they looked at me, or got close to me at work…
Dr. Kormeili is the BEST!! I have a horrible phobia of needles and she calmed my nerves and had an extremely gentle touch. Painless office visit!
