Syringoma Electrocautery ReviewSunday, January 10, 2016
|I had to wear a mask because my eye area is very red.|
consult a dermatologist to examine what are these tiny little creatures.
I went to Colayco Dermatology Clinic, located at U-G 22 Cityland Makati Excutive Tower IV, Sen. Gil Puyat Ave. Pio Del Pilar, Makati City. The dermatologist is Dr. Mabelle Colayco. She has a very kind voice and pretty. She is pregnant by the way. I don't have a picture of the clinic but I promise you to post my second visit with a picture. :)
It's Syringoma. According to my dermatologist, the safe procedure to remove Syringoma is Electrocautery. She explained the process and what to expect after the procedure. She also mentioned that they will grow back after 6 months since it's in the blood (Parang pabebe girls, walang makakapigil sa kanila!). I appreciate her honesty and I still willing to give it a shot.
The procedure costs Php 2,000 plus an Antiredness Antibiotic Cream of Php 200. I also purchased a sunscreen (because I don't have one) to protect the affected areas on my face.
|I can feel a little bit pain and I consistently applying the antibiotic cream.|
|Those little dark spots will be gone after 1 week according to the doctor.|
The whole procedure took 1 hour and 30 minutes. The assistant washed my face, focusing around my eyes. She applied a thick anesthesia cream on the areas with syringoma, covered it with plastic and let it settle for an hour. After she removed the plastic and clean some areas around my eyes, I already feel the numbness which is the effect of the anesthesia. Then Dr. Mabelle told me that she will start to cauterize the syringoma. I really felt the pain even if there's an anesthesia especially under the eye area. After the 1st cauterization, she let me look at my face in the mirror while cleaning the burned part. I was really shocked with what I saw and felt double shocked when she told me she will recauterize them to really remove the syringoma! Oh no, not just once, but twice that I will be going to feel the pain of that little needle that will electrically burn your skin!
After the re-cauterization, she applied a cream (it's very cold and refreshing) and reiterate all the do's and don'ts after the procedure. She suggested Cetaphil for my daily cleanser and apply the antibiotic cream to reduce the redness and for protection of the cauterized area.

I will be back after 1 month to check if there are still syringomas not removed. If she notice some, I will undergo the same procedure for free.
Thank you for reading and I hope I this review helps you specially to those of you who are planning to get rid of their Syringomas.
