We experienced that two Japanese women diagnosed with syringoma, confirmed by a punch biopsy, were successfully treated with fractional resurfacing. Both clinical cases have had positive results after only a few treatments, with high patient satisfaction, not only for the improvement of syringoma, but also for the improvement of aging skin, and with no side effects. From that aspect, laser treatment with fractional photothermolysis may be considered to be one of the effective treatment methods for syringoma. Although fractional photothermolysis was originally developed for an aesthetic purpose, it also can be utilized for intractable skin disease, as demonstrated by taking the concept of fractional photothermolysis and the results from this study with skin biopsy.
