Not for the face: There is no standard treatment for syringomas. Options are abundant and generally unsatisfactory. None eliminates the risk of recurrence. I have treated a few patients with Erbium laser with acceptable cosmetic results. Betnovate is a topical steroid (do not use on the face). Repeated use can cause atrophy of the skin

Syringoma: Syringoma is a glandular proliferation. There is no cure, per se, but laser therapy may improve the appearance.
