Ablation of facial adenoma sebaceum using the Versajet™ Hydrosurgery System

Abstract

Sebaceous adenomas, histologically facial angiofibromas, are closely associated with the tuberous sclerosis complex. The dermatologic disorder constitutes one of the main characteristics for that disease. The lesions commonly involve the central part of the face, including the cheeks, perioral region and nose with predominance in the nasolabial folds, causing a major cosmetic disfigurement. Aesthetic surgery of the face comprises different forms of ablative treatments using mechanical dermabrasion, shave excision, radiofrequency ablation, cryosurgery, laser therapy, and electrocoagulation. The use of Versajetâ„¢ Hydrosurgery System has not been previously described in the treatment of adenoma sebaceum so far. In this case report, we present the successful application of this hydrosurgical system in a patient with tuberous sclerosis and multiple facial angiofibromas indicating it as a feasible, effective, reliable, and economical treatment option.

Level of Evidence: Level V, therapeutic study.
