Most people are generally happy with their overall appearance. There might be some minor things they’d like to tweak, but for the most part, they are comfortable in the skin that they are in. That is why it can be so disheartening to discover a cyst, a lesion or any form of a skin wound developing on a place that is visible, like your face.
As the lesion or cyst grows and becomes more visible, your self-esteem diminishes. The mark goes from being a small annoyance to something that defines the way you see yourself. As such, you may want to consider lesion and cyst removal services.
What is a Cyst and When Should It Be Removed?
A cyst is a pocket of tissue that can be full of fluid, pus or even gas. When determining whether a cyst should be removed, our medical professional will evaluate the following:
- The type of cyst
- Where the cyst is located
- If the cyst is causing pain or discomfort
- If the cyst has become infected
- If the client wishes to have it removed
What are Skin Lesions?
Skin lesions encompass a wide range of abnormal growths that vary in shape, size and appearance. They can include, but are not limited to:
- Skin atrophy
