Cyst removal treatment with laser
Cysts can be very painful, and develop in areas which can be very uncomfortable. At our clinic, we offer cyst removal to help relieve you of this pain. Generally, this is a one-off treatment, and you may just need a follow up on your cyst removal. Our cyst removal treatment is carried out by a doctor.
Cysts are closed pockets of tissue that can be filled with fluid, pus, or other material. This creates a “lump or bump” that may feel like a small, smooth pea under the skin’s surface.
Cysts can develop as a result of infection, clogging of sebaceous glands, around foreign bodies or ingrowing hairs. Cysts often occur on the face, scalp and body, commonly being a sebaceous cyst, epidermal or pilar cysts. You should see a doctor when you notice a lump or bump, to confirm it is a cyst and can have the right treatment.
At our clinic, we use a laser to remove a cyst, lump or skin tag which is painless and gives an almost “Perfect” result. It is often best to get them removed and the scar from removal is far less noticeable. Occasionally the cyst may be confused for a lipoma which is fatty lump slightly deeper in the skin that is also removed with minimal scarring.
It is important to know that after cyst removal treatment, you may need some skin care, this would improve your skin of any marks or scars (minimal, if any) post-treatment.
what to expect
Before the cyst removal treatment
Your doctor will assess your areas of concern and advise whether further investigation (histology) is required. If so, the necessary arrangements will be made and occasionally patients are referred in order to confirm that there are no contraindications. However, with cyst removal, histology not necessary. Please note cyst removal cost will be given to you on this day, the prices listed below are a guide.
Once you and the doctor have decided on the cyst removal treatment it would be a good opportunity to discuss your skin care after cyst removal, to reduce any scarring as much as possible.
During the treatment
Your doctor will mark the lesion(s) to be removed and local anaesthesia will be given at each site. The laser will then be used to cauterise each lesion. The procedure will be quick and comfortable. With Cyst removal stitches may be required, however, this will be assessed during your consultation.
After the treatment
After the cyst removal treatment, there is no recovery time and you may leave the clinic when you are ready. However, the treated areas will look ‘scabby’ and darker than the surrounding skin. Depending on the type of cyst removed there may be stitches involved or steri strips, this will be discussed once the doctor has seen you.
Once you have seen our doctor, he will assess your cyst and determine a price depending on the size and site of the cyst. It will also be determined whether your cyst will need further investigation to confirm it is a cyst or whether it requires histology.
If it is a cyst, you can have the cyst removal treatment on the same day as your consultation if both you and the doctor are happy to proceed.
