While most cholesterol spots form as a result of high blood cholesterol levels, they can sometimes arise on your skin when you have good levels of cholesterol too. The bad news is that there's no easy way to remove them from your face; the good news is that it is possible if you're willing to discuss it with your doctor. While cholesterol spots are essentially harmless, they appear as pale bumps on your face, most often around your eyelids. If they make you feel self-conscious or uncomfortable, it may be worth the effort to remove them.
