Abstract

• Granuloma faciale is an uncommon cutaneous condition characterized by brownish-red macules, papules, nodules, and plaques. Separate areas of granuloma faciale involving the nasal skin of a 32-year-old man were treated using electrosurgery, carbon dioxide laser, and dermabrasion. All modalities provided good cosmetic and functional outcomes. The relative advantages and disadvantages of each technique are presented.
