What are Skin Cysts?
A skin cyst is a fluid-filled lump just underneath the skin. It’s common and harmless, and may disappear without treatment. It can be difficult to tell whether a lump is a cyst or something else that might need treatment. Cysts are sometimes confused with boils or skin abscesses. Boils and abscesses are painful collections of pus that indicate an infection. A cyst may go on to become a boil or abscess.
What Causes Cysts?
Skin Cysts are noncancerous, closed pockets of tissue that can be filled with fluid, pus, or other material. They feel like large peas under the surface of the skin. Cysts can develop as a result of infection, clogging of sebaceous glands (oil glands), or around foreign bodies, such as earrings
What Treatment is Needed to Remove Skin Cysts?
To remove cysts, we use the latest advanced cosmetic procedures. Before the treatment a consultation is required. Cyst removal will require local anaesthetic and will then be removed by a scalpel. The treatment itself is a little uncomfortable but easily tolerated and local anaesthetic will be used. There are minimal after effects, with a little tightness and scabbing to be expected. Treatment lasts approx. 45 minutes.
What Results can be Expected?
Skin Cysts can be removed successfully leaving a healthier clearer looking skin. This treatment is available to both men and women on the face and on other body areas.
