TREATING FORDYCE GLAND HYPERPLASIA

Fordyce gland hyperplasia involving the upper lip is a benign condition that does not require therapy, but it is not cosmetically pleasing. Is there any treatment to improve the appearance?

I usually use light electrodesiccation with a Hyfrecator to treat this condition. It can also be treated with a carbon-dioxide laser.
