Sebaceous cyst on the cheek (16162)


Laser to remove benign skin tumors and sebaceous cysts.

Sebaceous cysts often originate from inflammation of the hair follicles. They are bumps that move freely under the skin, grow slowly, and are painless.

They frequently become infected and produce the following symptoms: redness of the skin, pain, increased local temperature, drainage of a cheesy white gray material.

Unlike conventional treatment, which is generally surgical, the Hoogstra Medical Center performs a novel laser treatment for sebaceous cysts, anthrax and boils that consists of making a small hole in the most protruding part of the cyst.
Thanks to the high impact speed of the Lotus II laser, it is not necessary to perform local anesthesia or apply anesthetic creams.
Once the hole is made, the cyst is drained, once the drainage is completed, the Lotus II Laser is programmed in a long pulse mode, which produces contraction of the walls of the sac and contraction of the same.

After this procedure, the patient can continue his daily life.
This procedure is completely painless and leaves no scar.
