How to prevent Xanthelasma from reappearing?

The only way to prevent Xanthelasma from reoccurring is by:

  • Keeping your cholesterol levels low. This is done by eating less and eliminating meat consumption
  • Eating fish instead of meat
  • Eating a high proportion of fruit and vegetable
  • Exercising regularly
  • Keeping your BMI as low as possible
  • Leading a stress free life
  • No smoking

 

Leading a healthy lifestyle does considerably lower the chances of Xanthelasma to reappear after removal.

Unfortunately it is not known why certain individuals experience Xanthelasma recurrence despite conducting a healthy lifestyle and keeping low cholesterol levels. In many cases genetics play an important role in the formation of Xanthelasmas. Therefore all you can do is keeping as healthy of a lifestyle as you possibly can and do not stress if they reoccur.

It has been reported that applying Garlic Slices  once a week does avoid the Xanthelasmas recurrence. Apparently the area where the Xanthelasma usually appear needs to be covered by a slice of Garlic for 10 minutes. The Slice must be cut in half so that the juice will be in direct contact with the skin around the eyes. The following day the skin will redden and swell, allegedly this has prevented Xanthelasma from recurring. Please note that there is no scientific evidence to corroborate the efficacy of this method, however Garlic is harmless and inexpensive and hence worth a try!

After all if the Xanthelasma reappear all you can do is to have them treated again, and this is easy and inexpensive.
