Which Laser is Better for Sebaceous Cyst Removal on Forehead.. A CO2 Laser or RF Laser?

Doctor Answers (2)

Cyst Removal


Thank you for your question. Cyst removal is best done by surgical excision. A laser does not remove a cyst.  I would recommend a consult and treatment under the supervision of a Board Certified Dermatologist or Plastic Surgeon for best results and safest treatments options.  I hope this helps!

Sebaceous cyst


A sebaceous cyst is not treated with lasers.  It is best to have it excised or else there is a risk it can get infected.
