Facial skin tags, unsightly eyelid lumps or bumps may lead to low self-confidence and consequently affect one’s quality of life. These can be easily dealt with and removed with minimal or no pain using Radiofrequency technology that ensures almost ‘bloodless’ surgery.
Middle age and metabolic disorders or hereditary causes can give rise to ‘lipid-like’ yellowish deposits in the upper or rarely lower eyelid skin that looks quite unsightly. This can be removed via a simple surgery under local anaesthesia after which the patient can immediately go home.
