» Cyst Removal What Is A Cyst? Before seeking cyst removal in London, your Treatment Coordinator will examine your skin to diagnose whether this is a cyst, and what the best treatment will be at our London cyst removal clinic. A cyst is a lump located beneath the skin that is filled with fluid and is usually a similar size and shape to a small pea, but they can slowly grow to a few centimetres across. Cysts can appear anywhere on the body but are most common on the face, neck, chest, shoulders, and the skin around the genitals. They are usually harmless but can feel uncomfortable or painful, especially if they become infected. The most common types of cysts include: Epidermoid cysts are usually caused by a build-up of keratin under the skin Sebaceous cysts form out of the sebaceous gland, which produces sebum Pilar cysts are those that are found on the scalp or around hair follicles Chalazion or meibomian cysts are those that form on the eyelids Cysts usually develop as a result of an infection or due to a blocked gland. They can also occur around in-growing hairs and are often found in the scalp or underarm area. Anyone can develop a cyst, but they are more common after puberty or if you have suffered with acne. Cysts are not contagious, but early cyst removal in London is recommended to reduce the risk of infection and to minimise scarring. All treatments are tailored to the individual and personal experiences and results may vary. We recommend a one to one consultation with our Treatment Coordinators to discuss your treatment options. London Cyst Removal Clinic It is important to have any new cysts on your body checked over by a professional for diagnosis. However, both body and facial cyst removal are generally considered cosmetic procedures as cysts are not usually harmful. Therefore, in the UK, you will need to arrange a private cyst removal if you wish to do so. At our cyst removal clinic, you can be sure of the best treatment available. Here at EF MEDISPA, our professional dermatologists are experts in cyst removal in London. They are well experienced in removing all types of cysts and use techniques that minimise scarring for the best results. We are also able to offer treatments to help reduce the likelihood of further cysts developing, which is particularly important after sebaceous cyst removal in London. Occasionally the suspected cyst is a type of lipoma, which is a fatty lump that is usually found slightly deeper beneath the skin. We also offer Lipoma removal in London that results in minimal scarring. About Our Cyst Removal in London Cysts are usually harmless; however, we always advise that they are reviewed by a doctor prior to removal. If a cyst grows larger, it can look unsightly or become uncomfortable under clothing. They can also become infected or even rupture, which may cause discomfort and pain. It is recommended to seek private cyst removal in London as early as possible in order to keep the scarring to a minimum. During the removal process at our welcoming London cyst removal clinic, our skilled dermatologists will use a local anaesthetic to numb the area, before making a tiny cut and squeezing or carefully cutting out the cyst. This procedure may leave a small scar; however, the appearance of this will diminish over time. If you are having a facial cyst removal, we can discuss additional treatments to speed up the healing time of scars. It is also important to note that cysts can occasionally return. This is more common after pilar and sebaceous cyst removal.

Our team of expert dermatologists are experienced in removing cysts from all areas of the body, including facial cyst removal, pilar cyst removal and the sensitive genital area. How long does cyst removal take? Our body and neck cyst removal London takes around 30 minutes to complete. However, in pilar cyst cases, where the cyst may be located under the scalp, cyst treatment time may be longer as scalp cyst removal is a more delicate process. Is the cyst removal process painful? The removal will be performed under local anaesthetic to help reduce any pain or discomfort. However, you may feel pressure or pushing during the procedure. This will be more noticeable with scalp cyst removal. There is minimal downtime using our method of skin cyst removal. Will it leave scarring? This procedure may leave a small cyst removal scar, however, the appearance of this scar will diminish over time. Our team of experts will advise you on how to care for your wound after treatment to minimise scarring. How many sessions will I need? Only one treatment is usually necessary. If the cyst is completely removed, then it is unlikely to return.
