What are fibroids and how do they develop?

Fibroids are benign growths of connective tissue, most common in middle-aged people, and can result from predisposition, hormonal changes, or friction against the skin. They can appear on almost any part of the body, but preferred locations are the neck, chest, armpits, groin, and eyelids.

As you can imagine, when fibroids appear in inconvenient places, they are extremely disruptive. Below we even show you an example of a patient whose tongue tip was treated with phlebolysis:

No conclusions can be drawn about the success of other treatments from this individual treatment case.

At the tip of the tongue there is always the danger of biting the fibroma, causing bleeding and also the danger of inflammation. But many other parts of the body also sometimes harbor the constant risk of getting stuck on the fibroma, tearing it open and causing a wide variety of problems.

Conventional treatment methods for fibroids

There are various conventional treatment approaches to remove fibroids. The choice of treatment depends on the size, number and location of the fibroma as well as the patient's individual preference.

  • surgical removal: Surgical removal of fibroids is the most commonly used method. After a local anesthetic, the fibroma is removed with a scalpel or surgical scissors. The wound is then stitched or closed with tape. This method is very effective, but also invasive and often leaves scars.
  • cryotherapy: Here the fibroma is removed by freezing with liquid nitrogen. This can cause pain and blistering. Scars and discoloration of the skin occur less frequently.
  • electrosurgery: During electrosurgery, the fibroma is removed with an electric loop after local anesthesia. This method is quick and effective but, like surgical removal, often results in scarring.
  • Laser therapy: Laser therapy is a non-invasive method for removing fibroids and is mostly used for many, smaller fibroids. The fibroids are "cooked" with a high-energy laser beam - however, the surrounding tissue is also attacked and severe redness and scabs can form.

The choice of the right treatment approach depends on various factors, such as the size of the fibroma, the location and the individual preference of the patient - the treating doctor will clarify the options with the patient accordingly.

How phlebolysis works in fibromas

 

Various conventional treatments were previously available, but now an innovative technology called phlebolysis is gaining ground. This method combines electrolysis and radiofrequency to target fibroids and cut off their blood supply, causing the tissue to be denatured and shed, while allowing healthy tissue to grow underneath the fibroid.

Phlebolysis uses a very fine needle that does not heat up and cannot cause burns. This needle destroys the blood vessels in the affected skin region. The ongoing user study has so far shown that pedunculated fibromas cause the supplying vessels to close and that they simply fall off within about ten days without leaving scars or other side effects.

In the case of fibroids that have grown over a large area, the treatment is accompanied by a deliberate necrotic dissolution of the tissue. Again, the formation of scars after treatment is not known. By cutting off the blood supply in a targeted manner, the fibroid tissue can be denatured and rejected. This process can take place immediately after the treatment or after a few days.

Patients not only benefit from a gentle and scar-free removal of the fibromas, but also from a quick recovery. Phlebolysis thus opens up new possibilities for people who suffer from unpleasant and aesthetically detrimental fibromas.

However, it is important that the treatment is always carried out by an experienced doctor. He can conduct an individual consultation and determine the best course of action for each patient.

Advantages of phlebolysis treatment:

  • no anesthesia
  • Scar formation not known
  • gentle and painless method
  • immediately visible reaction
  • applicable to any skin
  • Burns impossible because the tool is cold
  • no bleeding
  • no risk of infection
  • Patient is in no way restricted after treatment

The needle of the phlebolyser heats the water molecules of blood vessels and obliterates them. As a result, the affected tissue is shed and new, healthy skin can form.
