Sebaceous Cyst removal treatment with laser
Laser Cyst Removal
Cysts, especially the sebaceous cysts can be painful,- and develop in areas where they can cause a great deal of discomfort. At our clinic in Ruislip, London,- we offer cyst removal to help relieve the pain. Generally, this is a one-off treatment, but you may, need a check-up following cyst removal. Our sebaceous cyst removal treatment is carried out by a doctor with either a laser or surgically.
“Lumps & Bumps” Removal
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. At our clinic in Ruislip London our doctors are able to remove these lumps.
Sebaceous cysts can develop as a result of infection, clogging of sebaceous glands,- or form around foreign bodies or ingrowing hairs. Cysts often occur on the face, scalp and body,- The most common are sebaceous, epidermal or pilar cysts. You should see a doctor if you notice a lump or bump,- to confirm that it is a sebaceous cyst and that you 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. Book a consultation with our doctors in Ruislip London.
It is important to know that after the removal of a sebaceous cyst, you may need certain skin care products. These can help minimise any post-treatment marks or scarring and aid the recovery process. Book a consultation with our doctors in Ruislip Hillingdon London.
what to expect
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 is not necessary. Please note that the cyst removal cost will be given to you at this appointment. The prices listed below are a guide.
Once you and the doctor have decided on the cyst removal treatment there will be an opportunity to discuss your skin care after cyst removal. This is done to aid recovery and minimise scarring.
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. This will be assessed during your consultation.
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 you may have stitches or steri strips. This will be discussed with you once the doctor has seen you.
