Cyst Removal Procedures
Board Certified Medical & Cosmetic Dermatologist in Burbank
A cyst is a sac-like growth filled with pus or semisolid materials that
form under the skin. Some cysts form due to dirt or microscopic particles
getting stuck in a hair follicle, others are caused by infections, and
some can be caused by tumors. No matter the specific cause of a cyst,
it can be painful, lead to trouble health conditions, or cause significant
blemishing or discoloration around the affected area.
At Lisa Benest, MD, Medical & Cosmetic Dermatology, our Burbank medical
dermatologists can perform cyst removal procedures for many types of cysts.
We highly recommend that you come and talk to our staff if you have a
cyst or any other abnormal skin condition that may require
medical dermatology to correct.

using a syringe. This allows us to safely extract and collapse a cyst
with very little pain or risk to the patient. Needle aspiration is considered
to be highly effective and can entirely remove a cyst with one visit.

such as the leg. Some cysts may require multiple treatments if they continue
