Lipoid proteinosis (LP) is a rare autosomal-recessive genodermatosis, characterized by the deposition of amorphous hyaline-like material in different parts of the body, especially the skin and mucous membranes. Disfiguring lesions predominantly affect the facial appearance. No curative therapy and treatment options limited to symptomatic approaches are available. Facial disfigurement in this disease may have a huge negative effect on the patients’ psychology and quality of life. With this regard, the patients may benefit very much from the treatments that enhance their cosmetic outlook. We present a 19-year-old female patient with LP who came to us seeking treatment for her facial lesions. She was treated with a combination regimen of fractional carbon dioxide and non-ablative radio frequency with good clinical and aesthetic outcome.
