Cyst removal in London

As a dermatology doctor, one of the most common procedures I perform is cyst removal. ‘Procedure’ can be an intimidating word, but rest assured we’re not talking 10 hours under the knife. We mean simple procedures for common blemishes including cysts. It is done under local anaesthetic, and after, you can carry on with your day as before – but with better-looking skin.

What is a cyst?

First, let’s talk about what a cyst is. A cyst is a sac-like structure that can form anywhere on the body. They are usually filled with fluid, but can also contain semi-solid material or even air. Cysts can be caused by a variety of factors, including blockages in the glands or hair follicles, injuries to the skin, or genetic conditions.

While most cysts are harmless, they can become inflamed or infected, causing pain, redness, and swelling. In some cases, cysts can also be cosmetically bothersome, especially if they are located in a highly visible area.

How is a cyst removed?

The procedure is typically done in-clinic on the day you attend for an appointment, using local anesthesia to numb the area around the cyst. Then, I make a small incision in the skin and carefully remove the cyst. Depending on the size and location of the cyst, I may also need to remove some surrounding tissue.

After the cyst is removed, I close the incision with stitches or adhesive strips. You may experience some mild pain or discomfort for a few days, but most people are able to return to their normal activities within a week.

The best part of cyst removal? Once the cyst is gone, you no longer have to worry about it causing discomfort or being a cosmetic concern. Patients often report feeling more confident and comfortable in their own skin after having a cyst removed.

How to book in

If you’re considering cyst removal in London, the first step is to schedule a consultation with a qualified doctor. If you come to me, during your consultation I will evaluate the cyst and discuss the best course of action with you. I’ll also answer any questions you may have and provide detailed instructions for aftercare.

Remember, cyst removal is a safe and effective procedure that can improve your quality of life. Don’t let fear or uncertainty hold you back from seeking treatment. There is also no reason to go ahead with the procedure if you don’t want to after the consultation. We understand it is not for everyone and are always here to answer any queries about your skin – regardless of outcome.

What a lovely find No.23 Skin is, this was my first facial post lockdown and I picked the perfect place. It is in beautiful location just off High St Ken and whilst being luxurious it was also welcoming and warm. I selected the anti-aging facial and Cecilia tailored it especially to my skin concerns. She had had such a great touch and I was relaxed from the first minute. Facial included a fabulous massage and a LED light treatment (this is a must) and after 75 mins I left with glowing skin! It’s been over two weeks and my skin still looks fresh and dewy.Next appointment is with Dr Armstrong for my wrinkle treatment. Will then be Christmas party ready!read more

The team at No.23 Skin are really helpful, warm and knowledgeable. I went in for a pregnancy facial with Cecilia and she helped me with some very annoying milia that have been troubling me around my eyes for ages and nobody else would help with.I was also able to have a pregnancy safe peel which has left me with smoother skin with a more even tone. Would really recommend!read more
