Sebaceous Hyperplasia

Sebaceous hyperplasia often appears in middle-aged individuals who have always struggled with oily or combination skin.  These enlarged oil glands randomly begin to pop up on the face, and they rarely go away on their own.   While these bumps are benign, they may also be associated with nonmelanoma skin cancer.

The sebaceous glands cover all parts of the body. They are responsible for creating sebum. The secretion lubricates the skin so that it doesn’t dry out, but it can also produce excessively oily skin. It can be very difficult for patients who have struggled with oily skin only to see these lesions appear as they grow older since they won’t go away on their own. There are various ways to treat these bumps so that you can have a smooth complexion.
