The face and neck are considered to be very personal places of the body. While they are not private areas, they are personal because it is your facial features that come to mind when people think of you. When these areas are a cause of concern due to acne, it often causes people to feel embarrassed or self-conscious about their appearance. While pimples and blackheads are bad enough, large cysts that grow and remain on the face for weeks at a time are sometimes unbearable to deal with.

Sebaceous cysts develop from the glands that secrete oily substances that lubricate the hair and skin. These glands are called sebaceous glands, hence giving the name to the sebaceous cysts. Sebaceous cysts are slow growing and they do not typically require removal for medical reasons. However, because of their location on the face or neck, they are often cause for cosmetic concern and many people seek out treatment.

Sebaceous cysts can produce tenderness, swelling, and redness in the area of location. Often, people report that their cysts will be “deflated” one day and then swollen and irritated the next day. This cycle can repeat itself over and over again during the course of the cyst, making sebaceous cysts very frustrating to those who suffer from them. It is not known what causes sebaceous cysts to occur in some people and not in others. Many people will suffer from acne but will not develop sebaceous cysts, while others will have an extremely clear complexion and yet still develop these cysts.

While sebaceous cysts are known to go away on their own, it can take weeks and even months for them to clear. Professional dermatologists can help patients find the treatment they need to alleviate the symptoms of sebaceous cysts. At Medical Dermatology Specialists in Atlanta, Dr. Jamie Weisman is a renowned medical dermatologist who is dedicated to getting to the root issues of skin problems. She understands that all skin conditions are more than just skin deep, and she uses her background in medical research to figure out the underlying problems behind chronic skin conditions such as sebaceous cysts.

If you suffer from cysts on your face or neck that simply will not go away or that reoccur again and again, please contact our medical dermatology practice today. We are here to help you find a successful treatment that will restore your confidence.

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.

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.
