What are fibromas
Fibromas are benign growths of connective tissue, round or oval shape circumscribed by the surrounding tissue. Changes are frequent and slow growth is characteristic. They appear as a single lesion, or more often as multiple skin lesions.
Fibromas are most common in middle age. Predispositions to fibromas are obesity, hormonal imbalances, chronic irritation and genetic predisposition. Some new research has revealed the presence of HPV in the lesions.
Where do fibromas occur most frequently
Fibromas usually occur on the head, on the skin of the eyelids and neck, on body, armpits and bikini area. They are often attached to the skin with narrow stem (fibroma pendulum), and sometimes have a broad base. Fibroma size is from a few millimeters to a few centimeters in diameter – a giant fibromas.
They can be hard (fibroma durum) and soft consistency (fibroma molle). On the back, shoulders and abdomen fibroma color is a little darker than the surrounding skin. In the bikini area and armpits are usually blue or heavily pigmented and they are often confused with moles.
Methods of removing fibromas
Fibromas can be removed by various methods (cryotherapy, laser surgery, radio waves …). Fibromas removal with laser and radio waves requires the use of anesthesia.
The most effective method of removing fibromas – CRYOTHERAPY
For cryotherapy fibroma removal is generally sufficient only one intervention. The use of the most modern apparatus Brymill with different types of applicator allows application of the liquid nitrogen with a high precision, and without damage to the surrounding healthy skin.
SkinCare Center therapists have been trained in the application of cryotherapy in medical care and have Brymill certificate.
