Dermatology Questions? Ask an Online Dermatologist.
These are xanthelasmas.
These are deposits of cholesterol. About half the people with them have an elevated cholesterol level.
They can be removed with surgically, or with a CO2 laser. Electrosurgery, using an electric needle too. I often find success with 95% Trichloracetic acid ( NOT FOR HOME USE....I am very careful since these are around the eyes).
Diet, to lower cholesterol is really not helpful although not a bad idea for general health.
One problem with xanthelasma is they tend to recur.
Happy to answer further questions.
