How I Got Rid of My Xanthelasma From Under My Eyes

Xanthelasma, normally white spots of under eyes.
Those with high cholesterol are more susceptible.
Here is how I got rid of mine.

Those of you with Xanthelasma know just how annoying and embarrassing they are.

A big white beacon, usually around your eyelids, beckoning people to come and stare.

I tried everything to get rid of my xanthelasma, even poking them with seared needles, hoping to drain out whatever fluids may be in there.

Research “Xanthelasma removal”, and you will see that the only ways to do so are to go to a dermatologist or specialist and have them, cut, frozen or burnt or lasered off.

I’m not here to tell you that I found a new way of removing them.

I did however, remove them myself from the comfort of my home without having to pay the hundreds of dollars you will end up paying if you go the other route.

Here is how I did it.

In my search to remove my xanthelasma, I came across a few studies on TCA Peels and xanthelasma removal.

TCA stands for trichloro acetic acid.

So without further ado, her is what I did.

I purchased a bottle of 50% TCA Peel from an online website.

There are several websites that sell TCA Peels and some consumers report that they bought fradulent bottles, so be careful in which ones you purchase.

I have found two websites that sell the real deal.

I have no vested interest in either websites other than the condition of my skin, so if you want the websites, comment me or email me and I will send you those websites.

I than proceeded to twist the end of a cotton swab, dipped it in the 50% acid and carefully applied it to the xanthelasma.

Make sure to apply anything above 25% to your xanthelasma ONLY!

50% is to strong for application to your skin otherwise.

Immediately it began to sting.

I’m not going to sugarcoat the sting I felt, it was bad, but it was also tolerable.

After two or three minutes, the sting went away.

I noticed that the xanthelasma was now white.

On the websites and directions from the bottle, they call this the “Frost”.

The frost went away after twenty minutes or so and what I was left with was a reddish white xanthelasma that felt tender and raw.

The day after I applied the peel, the xanthelasma was now scabbed over with a brown flaky skin covering.

Though the xanthelasma was no longer noticable, I did not get overly excited because I had read that it may still be there, just hidden by the scab.

Sure enough, when the scab fell off,(It is important to let it fall off on its own. Do Not Pick!) there was my xanthelasma.

What I did notice is that it was reduced in size by about twentyfive percent.

The studies I have read said it would take between one and three peels to get the maximum benifits.

It also stated that 70% TCA and 100% TCA were used.

Since I had only the 50% bottle, I estimated that it would take me around four treatments to see maximum benefits.

I applied a second peel to my xanthelasma two weeks later.

Again, the same process took place.

Again, I noticed a visible reduction in size.

After two peels, my xanthelasma has reduced in size by 50% and it has also reduced in brightness.

So all in all, I would recommend the TCA Peel for your xanthelasma if you do not have the funds to have a doctor or professional to remove them for you.

Also, it is important to note that 80% of the participants in the study noticed a significant difference and I believe 60% had there xanthelasma disappear completely.

It is also important to note, that the study stopped treating the xanthelasma after 3 treatments, so it is unclear if improvement would have continued had they applied more treatments.

That is what I am about to find out as I apply my third peel tonight.

So far though, 50% reduction, it’s not as bright as it used to be and it is no longer the first thing people notice when they look at my face.

I will update you further when I finish my third and fourth peel.

I also plan to continue applying peels at safe intervals (at least two weeks in between) until I determine that there no longer has been any progress.

So good luck to those of you who will try this, follow the directions on the bottle and posting your results would be a huge benefit to all those who suffer from xanthelasma but cannot afford professional treatment.

  7. Hi could you tell me the name of the websites please. I too have them under my eyes and they seem to be growing daily! Any suggestions/help would be greatly appreciated.

  12. Hi , I am also interested in purchasing the TCA peel. If you don’t mind, I would appreciate receiving the information concerning the credible online companies where I might purchase the peel.

  13. Hi can you please send me the website details for the TCA peel – I can’t afford private care and these marks are getting me really down. Had them surgically removed about 4 yeras ag but they came back Thanks

  14. Thank you for all your replies.

    Sorry it took so long to get back to all of you.

    I wasn’t ure on how to reply individually, so I wrote a follow up story listing the websites. it is called “How I got rid of my xanthelasma follow up. You can find it on healtmad or do an engine search for the article.

    In it I list two of the websites I have found t be reputable.
    One of them I purchased from personally and have been very pleased with the product.

    Do note that the xanthelasma may return after treatment.
    It may also do so with surgery.
    With the TCA peel, you will at least have an effective way of reducing or removing your xanthelasma on the cheap.
    Soif the procedure needs to be repeated, the bottle you purchased should last for up to 30 treatments..
    Let me know how it goes.

    Good Luck to you all

  17. Hi, I’ve had xanthelasma for seven years now.I had it removed twice,once by surgery and once by laser but after a few months it grew back. I now settle for using camouflage make up(Dermablend) which hides it very well.

  20. Can you please let me know if they have returned since you applied this? I’ve had surgery 4 times now and they continue to return. I have no insurance now and they have become huge, but I can’t afford to have them removed… so I’m so excited about finding this post. I have them on both eye lids and below my eyes. Can’t wait to try this. THANKS for the post!

  22. Hello Lissa,

    Unfortunately they do return. It will be lighter and thinner when they do and if you continue with this treatment, it will go away faster each time you repeat the process.
    According to the research, over 50% of the people who have done this regime have had them permanently disappear.
    Unfortunately I am not one of them.
    Instead my improvement is more on the 80% plus scale.
    Like I said, they are no longer the first thing that you notice about my face anymore.
    Also, even if you have to repeat the process, maybe two or three times a year, the bottle cost me fifty dollars and it has lasted well over a year so you will not be spending any additional money for the treatment. Well maybe cost of a sunscreen and cotton swabs.
    I have had several people email me and are happy with the results. It is a painful process because it is acid after all, so do follow all instructions and be very careful around your eyes.
    If you decide to try this, let me know how it is going for you.
    As for me, they get smaller and thinner each time: for others it is a permanent removal.
    Good luck with whatever you decide to do.

  23. Im going to try this as i have had xanthelasma for over ten years but here in the U.K there is very little you can do unless you have the money to get rid of them by surgery at a cost of over £1000 per eye or a peel at over £400 per eye which i dont have the money to do, so i have order some TCA peel at 50% which will be here by next week plus i will take photos of my eyes before and after so you can see if this works as i do have this very bad and i hope it will help other people out there to make there minds up if this is for them.

  24. Could you please send me the web sites? I am so anxious to get started right away! Did you continue to get good results? Thanks so much for posting your story. You are an encouragement!

  25. Oops! please disregard previous post from me, I just saw your post about a follow up! Thanks again so much for posting. I’ve had this problem for so long. I’m approaching 50 (very quickly) I want so very much to have “kind” eyes as a grandmother, not sick ones!

  26. Well it came this morning so I’m going to do it over the weekend, but just one eye for now till i see if this is any good and if it works! Will take photos and post link on here so you can see if there is any change cheers

  27. Well here are the photos…..

    I took some before and after i used the TCA peel you can see how they went white or frost as they say and it bloody sting like hell once it was on … just left it on for 2 mins but used 50% mix just got to wait a just over a week now to see if it was worth the pain lol, but as you can see from my eyes i do have it bad so what the hell they cant get any worst, will take some more photos in the week and keep you posted cheers.

  28. Andrew,

    Your Xanthelasma are in the same spot as mine are.

    Though mine are not as large as yours, they were pretty big in size.

    I wish I had taken before pictures, but when I first decided to try this, there was very little information out there about this procedure (Still very little information) So I was very skeptical that it worked.

    What happened was the first application I actually thought they were gone. Til the scabbing went down and my skin bounced back. I than saw that they were still there only smaller.

    I followed the application three times and like I said, I have about a 70% improvement.

    I am very excited for you and hope that it works even better!
    Thank you for keeping everyone posted and we all look forward to seeing the results.

  29. Can you please send me the website you used. I have one on my upper eyelid and it looks awful.

  30. Well its been 3 days since i put the peel on my eyes and they have just started to turn a dark red/brown but they still not scab over yet but the colour of the Xanthelasma stops have change to a much lighter colour then before so I’m hoping that they will scab over in the next few days, will take more photos tomorrow just so you can see the change every one

  31. Well they have started to scab over the Xanthelasma spots now and the colour of the Xanthelasma has change, not sure if its the dead skinon top but they are looking more like my skin colour which is great news, so another peel should make them hard to see will post a photo up later so you can see for yourself.


    there you go looking loads better now and still got about 5 days to go before the scabs fall off.

  33. Well here are the photos after a week … as you can see they are looking 100 times better than a week ago and i cant wait to see what they going to look like after the scabs peel off, there is a big change in colour just hoping they stay that colour in a few weeks time, plus i may do another peel in a week have to wait and see how it all turns out.

  34. Please email me the name of the website at thank u.

  35. Can I just add something here? I’ve tried this myself and mine look way better than they used to but they’re still not completely gone. Since xanthelasmas often return, this seems to be a problem that I will just have to deal with regularly. What I wanted to add is that you have to be very careful with the acid. I get petroleum jelly and coat the areas that I’m trying to protect. Particularly coat the edges near your eyes. You don’t want to get this acid on normal skin or in your eyes or you will end up with worse problems than the xanthelasmas.

  36. Would like to know the website for TCA

  37. Hello, Could I please obtain the web address’s for the TCA? Thankyou Thankyou Thankyou in advance!!!!!!!!

  38. Hi Andrew.. Just curious how your peel turned out?

  39. Please email me the authentic websites to get the peels from thank you very much

  40. Please email me the websites to get the peels… Thank you in advance so much!

  41. Garlic clove held on the problem area for 5-10 mins will have the same remedy.

  42. Really? Garlic Clove?

    If it does work, that would be an incredible solution.
    Why does it work?
    Anyone tried or willing to try it?

    I think I will. If it doesn’t work, it should be harmless enough.

  43. Hi There. Can I please hve the web address for the TCA to

  44. Hi I would love to know what website you used for the TCA peel, I have xanthelamas on my upper eye lid.

  45. Hi could I get the website name for the TCA peel please? Thanks!

  46. hi could someone please send me the web site for the tca peel thank you

  47. Hi ! Please email me the website at I would be very happy to hear from you. Thanx.

  48. I was wondering if the TCA treatment only gets rid.of the white/yellow coloring of the xanth or.does it actually remove it including the bump it creates? also if you could please email me the websites, i would greatly appreciate it.

  49. I just took the leap following the general procedure described here. Application 1 of 50% TCA on my Xanthelasma. A little less painful than I’d expected, though I do have a fairly high threshold for pain. Pain dissipated rapidly and the frost appeared as expected.
    I’ll say at this point that if your xanthelasma are located close to your eyeball as mine are you should use great caution. This stuff doesn’t play. I do not want to contemplate getting it into my eye! If you have a steady-handed friend you may want to consider asking for their help. I’m steady handed but positioning the swab while closing an eye and looking in a mirror trying to guide it to it’s target is a little spooky. Focusing with one eye takes a few seconds and the all-important depth perception requires both eyes. I guess some women readers may laugh at that if they’ve become skilled at applying eye makeup – guys just don’t get much practice with this sort of thing. (I think ;-) )
    Word to the wise: be safe, get help or at the very least spend some time practicing with a dry q-tip. Try different positions to find out what gives you the quickest, most comfortable and thus safest access so you don’t hold the acid near your eyeball any longer than necessary.
    The frost has disappeared and I’m left wondering if I applied enough – I will resist any urge to apply more acid before two weeks has passed. I’ll post further then.

  50. Looks like Im a little late, but this is such good news to hear that there is a way to get rid of these horrible things. I have them on the top of my eyes as well as the bottom. I have had them removed twice (cut out), and once again they have come back..both times within just a few months after having them removed. So disappointed. There is not enough skin left to do the third surgery, without having to have further surgery to even out my eyelids…Please, advise the websites that you purchased your TCA…and updates on anyone thats giving it a try..I will be glad to update as well….thank you in advance.

  51. can anyone give me the sites for tca? thanks in advance. :-)

  52. hi!could anyone email me sites for tca,please?

  53. Please let me know what sites that you used to purchase TCA. Thanks!

  54. Can you post the link to the follow up article? I can’t seem to find it when I search. I would really like to read your results and get websites.

  55. Can you post the link to the follow up article? I can\’t seem to find it when I search. I would really like to read your results and get websites.

  56. Could you please share the website for ordering TCA peels( and update on your results. I am anxious to try.

  57. “I have had xanthelasma on my eyelids many years and have tried virtualy everything on the market including garlic without success. It occured to me a few months ago that in this day and age that apart from cosmetic surgery which costs an absolute fortune that there is not an ointment cure for this condition. (or maybe there is but no one wants to tell us about it?)

    I embarked on my own crusade to find my own cure for this condition and I think I may have found a way to decrease it or hopefully eliminating it completely using as near to natural herbs as I could.

    My xanthelasma has certainly decreased with my findings but I will not know for certain for a few weeks yet as they are still a bit scabby but it is looking very good as the yellow has not appeared under the new skin.

    I will keep you posted, hopefully with some good news once I am 100% sure.”

  58. pease let me know what website you got the tca from, as i am desperate to try this

  59. Hi, I would be very grateful if you could let me know the website you got this TCA from, I too have these under my eyes, and they’re unsightly!

  60. Hello..I have had this condition for a few years, and I’m so terribly self conscious about them. I’d really appreciate it if you could email me the website you got the TCA from. My son is getting married this summer, and I’d really love to be able to go without fearing everyone is looking at my “white spots”. Thank you so much for posting this, it’s nice knowing that I’m not the only one who is going through this. I wish you all the best. My email is

  61. hei.. pls email to me the TCA website. the xanthelasma appear back after i had surgery..

  62. Hi .. Please email me the TCA websites … I live in Australia and hope that I can get it from overseas … My xanthalasmas keep returning …Thank you.

  63. Hi guys! Needless to say, we have all the same problem. I would like to suggest to handle this condition from inside out. I am pretty sure that people from this page have some background of the causes, one major culprit is the cholesterol. Taking medication that may help reduce cholesterol levels thus delaying development of this xanthelasma, can work hand in hand with TCA….Which could compliment each other.

    I hope I have given some insights to ponder! Good luck evryone!

  64. I also have these on my Eyelids please let me know where to go to get this thanks…

  65. I also face the same problem cn you please email me the website that sell the TCA peels. I am embrassed with the conditions of my eyes. It is getting big and I am still young..Can you please help me. I really need it.

  66. my email is

  67. OMG I am so happy I found you. I have no money and have these on both my eyes and they make me sick….it makes me very sad that I can not go to a dr and treat them but I want to try what you have done and now its been 2 years please tell me how the results have been. I am very anxious to try this as I have had this problem for years and I hate it. Please tell me the website and all about you and your treatment progress. Looking forward to hearing from you…Hope you still check this

  68. Please send me the website to

    Thank you so much!

  69. Please send me the site too!

  70. Hi, can you send me the websites and let me know how you went. Thanks

  71. Hi, My step daughter has this and I don’t know if you are still responding but please if you can, send me the website that you got the peel from! The doctors want to do the same treatment but the price is insane and I would be much more comfortable doing it with a lesser strength even if it takes more treatments, just so I can keep an eye on it. Even though she is older, I still worry!

  72. I am interested in the web site for TCA Peel as I have xanthelasma on both eyelids and under my left eye

  73. Please, please, please be very careful. I have used 50% strength TCA peal and managed to remove most of it. Unfortunately, it is starting to re-appear.

    I also do have additional problem and that is I now have floaters in my eye. I have been told that vitreous gel in the eye is liquefying. I’m not sure if that is related to the use of TCA peel or not, but just thought I’d mention it.

  74. could u please share the web site with me. Thank you

  75. could u please share the web site with me. Thank you

  76. PLEASE send the site to me also

  77. Merry Christmas!

    Please let me know which websites you purchased from.
