Sebaceous Cysts are usually slow growing, painless, freely movable lumps beneath the skin varying
in size from a small pea to a clenched fist size or larger. Occasionally a cyst will become inflamed and
tender. Electrolysis treatment is a very safe, effective, quick and affordable method of treatment
when the cyst is of a 'manageable' size.
Sebaceous cysts most often arise from swollen hair follicles. Skin trauma can also induce a cyst to
form. A sac of cells is created into which a protein called keratin is secreted. These cysts are usually
found on the face, neck, and trunk of the body.
A small probe will be inserted into the sebaceous cyst, the energy expelled and a sensation of heat
will be experienced. The contents of the sebaceous cyst may or may not be extracted. Repeat
treatments are often required depending upon the size and nature of the cyst
