Sebaceous Cyst removal treatment with laser

Sebaceous Cyst Removal

Sebaceous 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 Sebaceous cyst removal treatment is carried out by a doctor.

Sebaceous 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.

Sebaceous 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 sebaceous cyst and can have the right treatment.

At our clinic, we use a laser to remove a Sebaceous cyst, 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  Sebaceous 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  Sebaceous 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 Sebaceous 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.

*Cyst, Mole, Wart & Skin Tag Removal Testimonials

*”
I went to Perfect Image after reading the impressive reviews. I was delighted by the friendly atmosphere and the lack of “sales pitch”. Dr Silva was extremely patient and re-assured me greatly. Mr/DrApul was also outstanding and explained the procedure again…and again, until I was 100% satisfied. He performed the surgery and constantly reassured me that all was well. I had 3 cysts removed from my eyelids and couldn’t believe how well I healed. Minimal bruising and maximal satisfaction! What a friendly, professional team (and were half the price I was quoted by BUPA and Harley Street Clinics!)”

*”This is my third visit to Perfect Image Consultants and from the moment I first walked in Dr Silva made me feel very comfortable and confident that he had listened to what I wanted. I was extremely pleased with the results and have returned twice more to have further treatment. Cannot recommend Dr Silva and his practice enough.”

Excellent service! from the initial inquiry and consultation to treatment and aftercare. Dr Silva was fantastic and very reassuring from my first call to the clinic to inquire about mole removal I spoke with the doctor himself! which really added a personal touch. The treatment was exceptional and the team were very supportive. I was surprised to have found a local clinic offering the latest technologies in lasering and at affordable prices.
