Hello,
Steatocystoma multiplex is characterized by numerous sebum-containing dermal cysts. Surgical approach is the best for them and includes cryotherapy, excision by surgery, aspiration, incisional variants and carbon dioxide laser. Please consult a dermatologist and discuss these treatment options with him.
I hope it helps. Take care and please do keep me posted in case you have any additional doubts. Kind regards.

Hello,
All these are the various surgical variants used in the treatment of steatcystoma multiplex. The choice of treatment depends on the severity of the condition and the decision of your dermatologist. The prognosis for patients with steatocystoma multiplex is excellent and very less number of recurrences have been shown.
I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
