Skin cysts are large, fluid-filled bumps that slowly grow beneath the skin. They can occur anywhere on the body, commonly affecting the face, neck, and torso. Having any type of unusual growth can be alarming, especially when it occurs in the facial area where it cannot be easily hidden. While cysts are benign, or noncancerous, growths that usually do not cause problems, they can cause people to feel self-conscious or embarrassed. 

Cysts are typically painless, slow to grow, and smooth to the touch. They often feel like small peas beneath the skin’s surface that do not hurt unless they become inflamed or infected. 

Some people develop cystic acne, where blemishes occur irregularly and last for a lengthy amount of time. These blemishes can be tender because they are infected sebaceous glands (oil glands) that fester and develop into an inflamed cyst. While acne is common among adolescents and young adults, cystic acne is relatively uncommon and more severe. The treatment of cystic acne requires a medical dermatologist who understands the complexities of skin issues and the causes behind them. Cystic acne is very difficult to treat at home despite the myriad of treatment methods found online. In-office treatment may include using liquid nitrogen to “freeze” the cyst or prescription treatment that is strong enough to break down the cyst.

For cysts that are not related to cystic acne, cyst removal treatment is a common option. Dr. Jamie Weisman leads Medical Dermatology Specialists in Atlanta as a distinguished clinical researcher with years of experience helping patients keep their skin healthy with advanced treatment options. Our practice handles all types of cyst removal, from a pilar cyst on the scalp to an epidermoid cyst on the back. 

Dr. Jamie Weisman understands that all skin conditions are more than skin deep. She, along with her team, will properly diagnose your cyst and give you accurate answers to its cause. With an accurate diagnosis, effective treatment can be administered. If you need cyst removal on the facial region, you can depend on Dr. Weisman to take precautions against scarring. If you have a cyst that you are concerned about, want to learn more about cyst removal, or have persistent cystic acne, contact Medical Dermatology Specialists today.

Our Patient Reviews

Dr. Weisman was very professional, friendly, and engaged in conversation with terminology I would understand. Her beside manner was, quite frankly, surprising! It was one of the most comfortable visits I've ever experienced with a doctor.
Jeffery D.
Dr. Weisman is a great doctor! She was very informative and personally! Her staff were very welcoming as well I'm glad I found her because she is the only doctor who truly explained what was going with me.
Waquele H.
I truly cannot express how thankful I am for this practice. I have been treated with kindness and immense care by every staff member I have encountered here. The nurses and assistants are beyond attentive and genuinely care for the patient. I have just received a treatment plan from Dr. Laura Biehl, and even if this particular treatment plan doesn't provide me relief, I am confident that Dr. Biehl will work to figure out a solution. She is extremely knowledgeable, listens to patient concerns, and takes time to answer patient questions. Dr. Biehl, and this practice are true gems. If you have any dermatological issues this practice is absolutely the best of the best.
