In brief: Possibly

Chemical peels may help sebaceous hyperplasia.
Main treatment options include liquid nitrogen, cauterization, localized topical treatment with a strong acid, shave excision & laser treatments including pulsed-dye laser, co2 laser and photodynamic therapy. Consult with a dermatologist to determine which treatments might be best for you, and to be sure that the lesion is not a basal cell skin cancer.
