What Causes Sebaceous Hyperplasia?
Sebaceous hyperplasia is caused by abnormally enlarged oil glands. Benign bumps form as a result of over-productive oil glands, the gland gets clogged and enlarged in a specific manner. (Doughnut hole appearance) called sebaceous hyperplasia papules. Sebaceous hyperplasia is hereditary condition. Age is also a factor, over time hormone levels decrease. A decrease in androgen hormones causes sebaceous cells to die off slower, leaving a surplus of cells trapped in the glands. These glands can grow 10x the size of a normal gland. An immune system defect can also trigger sebaceous hyperplasia, it’s also common for organ transplant patients to develop the condition. Cumulative sun damage can exacerbate sebaceous hyperplasia.

How is Sebaceous Hyperplasia Treated?
Although harmless, sebaceous hyperplasia can be a cosmetic nuisance and become more pronounced with age. There are several treatment options available, however it’s important to note that if you are prone to developing (hereditary) sebaceous hyperplasia it’s likely that you may develop new ones.

Sebaceous hyperplasia can be treated with high frequency, or an “electric needle.” An electrical current is used to break down and drain the lesion, forming a scab that falls off after a week or so. Scarring and discoloration is rare. Surgical removal can permanently remove the lesion, but can cause scarring. Liquid Nitrogen may also be used, however it may result in a scar or loss of pigment of the treated area depending on your skin type.

Can I prevent new Sebaceous Hyperplasia legions from forming?
Some people are just more susceptible to developing sebaceous hyperplasia due to hereditary, age, hormones etc. However adding a retinol/Retin A or glycolic acid product to your skin care regimen may help maintain a clear skin after your treatment. Retinol/ Retin A helps improve pore function by regulating cellular growth and turnover to prevent clogging of the oil glands and helps to normalize oil production.
