Treatment for Cysts

While they can crop up anywhere in the body, dermatologists diagnose and treat sacs or capsules that develop on and just under the skin, including those that stem from severe acne. Depending on the type, cysts may be filled with liquid, a solid-liquid combination, or even gas. Most are non-cancerous, but they can be painful and potentially become pus-filled abscesses. It’s best to have cysts checked out as soon as possible. Here in the office, we can determine the cause, then decide which treatment is best. A simple needle aspiration procedure can drain most cysts easily, providing fast relief.
