To have your cyst removed, it requires surgical removal as using oral medication or creams is not a real way of effectively treating a cyst. Our surgical removal procedure is also more effective than a shave or a laser because we carry out a full excision removal which means the cyst is cut out.
It is important to have this procedure done by a specialist because unlike the removal of other skin lesions, having your cyst removed will require surgery and cutting the skin will undoubtedly leave a mark.
As a result, we are very transparent and often raise awareness of all our methods used for removing a cyst at our London Dermatology Clinic. Here we prefer these procedures to be performed by a skin surgeon such as plastic surgeon or dermatologist, as many other clinics often employ general practitioners for these procedures.
While some clinics will advocate methods that involve bursting the cyst and squeezing the contents out of your skin, our method is more effective because we remove the entire cyst intact as a ball which ultimately reduces the risk of infection and spreading the cyst content. As a result, we are proud to say that we have amongst the lowest recurrence rates due to our specialist techniques.
In addition to the scar minimisation techniques, although you will be left with a small mark, it will fade over time. Ultimately, cysts can recur so it is important to choose the right method of removal to avoid disappointment later or returning for another procedure.
