Laser surgery for a sebaceous cyst removal
Laser surgery can be used as a means of ablating tissue or cauterizing tissue during the incision part of surgery. Removal of a sebaceous cyst is often not performed with laser.
Laser vs. surgery for sebaceous cyst
Laser treatment is not indicated for removal of sebaceous cysts on any part of the body. Surgery is the only way to remove them. It is a minor procedure that is typically done in the clinic under local anesthesia. The incision
could be made in a natural forehead crease for optimal scar camouflage
and would likely be smaller than the cyst itself. Be
sure you see a facial plastic surgeon or plastic surgeon. I wish you
Sebaceous Cysts need Surgery not lasers
Sebaceous Cysts need to be removed by surgery and NOT lasers. Lasers will not remove the entire cyst and it will recur.
Cyst Removal from Forehead
Sebaceous cysts must be removed surgically, laser treatment is not an option. The cyst capsule has to be removed entirely in order to prevent recurrence. Steroid injections or incision/drainage are temporary fixes, which are subject to high recurrence rates. I suggest you consult with a board certified facial plastic surgeon. Good Luck
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!
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.
