Hello, I am a 17 years old girl and I have started noticing some small, white bumps on my lips. Could it be Fordyce Spots? From what age do they start appearing?

It is very difficult to establish a period of time during which Fordyce Spots can be considered a more common occurrence since this skin condition does not seem to be influenced or determined by the age of the patient. It has generally been observed that sebaceous prominence can first appear around the age of 3, gradually becoming more prevalent during puberty and finally reaching the end of its evolution during adulthood.

Fortunately, there are several treatments available to you if you wish to remove your Fordyce Spots. The Renew Skin & Health team of experts is prepared to offer you the best conditions and guarantee the best results. Radiosurgery and electro-desiccation surgery can lead to incredible results if performed by skilled professionals.
