  • Medical disorders such as scleroderma, collagen vascular diseases, bleeding disorders, heart disease
  • Patients with diabetes and those on immunosuppressive therapy, who are therefore more likely to have decreased wound healing
  • Patients with moles or warts in the treatment area

BENEFITS:

  • Firstly, narrow hole technique is quick, minimally invasive and so causes no to very little pain.
  • Secondly, because it destroys tissue by excision instead of volatilization, there is no scar formation. Thereby it improves the cosmetic results of removing epidermal cysts.
  • Thirdly, it greatly reduces the chances of the unfavourable sequelae of pain, swelling, infection, rigidity, and shock due to excessive bleeding after major surgery.
  • Above all, the procedure has a low recurrence rate and is without complications.

 

How does the procedure work? 

Pre-Procedure

  • Your dermatologist will explain the procedure to you step-by-step and address all your concerns.
  • After that, you will be asked for your consent for the procedure. In fact, only then will they proceed further.
  • Once you’re comfortably settled, your dermatologist will clean the treatment area properly and then give local anaesthesia.
  • He will make a narrow hole incision over the cyst with a needle.
  • With the help of the scraping method, he will scrap the cyst gently towards the hole and remove the cyst entirely with the help of the extractor and forceps.
  • Lastly, to control bleeding, he will apply a compression dressing for five days with ointment and gauze.

Furthermore, the procedure lasts for about an hour to an hour and a half.

Moreover, in some cases, you may need to repeat the procedure after an interval of 1-2 months to reduce the risk of recurrence.

POST-PROCEDURE CARE:

  • Immediately after the procedure, you may experience a burning sensation that can be relieved by a cooling pad, cooling roller, or fan.
  • Try to avoid any direct exposure to dust.
  • You can wash the treated area with plain water after 24 hours or the next morning after treatment.
  • After the first day, wash and dry the treated area by patting the skin gently for 2 days.
  • During that period, do not rub the treated area.
  • After the 3rd day, you may wash or take a shower regularly.
  • Meanwhile, apply lotion at least twice a day. It will help hydrate and moisturise the skin, which will, in turn, help the area heal and reduce the risk of an allergic reaction.
  • Your doctor may prescribe painkillers and antibiotics to decrease pain and prevent infection.
  • After 3-7 days, a scab will form on the treated area and fall off soon.
  • New skin will start forming after 10-14 days.
  • For a week, avoid any vigorous activities like swimming, weight lifting, etc. Likewise, avoid smoking and alcohol consumption.
  • Average downtime is about five days.

SIDE EFFECTS:

  • Hypopigmentation or hyperpigmentation
  • Mild erythema
  • Mild depression
  • A pinpoint scar

However, the risk of these side effects is reduced when the procedure is performed correctly by an experienced surgeon.

- When should I see a dermatologist?

You should visit a dermatologist if your skin condition is not responding to any kind of OTC or home remedy treatment and it is impacting your confidence. You can seek treatment for a number of conditions including acne, scars, pigmentation, melasma, unusual growths and more.

- Do Acne Scars improve with treatment?

Typically, it takes 3 to 6 months for acne marks to disappear. However, if you have a scar, it means your skin is permanently damaged that requires medical attention. If acne has left raised spots or indentations, the damage has occurred even at a deeper level in the skin. A combination of treatments such as microdermabrasion, chemical peels, laser resurfacing, microneedling and fillers can be used to improve the appearance of your skin.

- How should I choose the right products for my skin?

Before choosing any kind of skin products it is best to consult a dermatologist, this is especially important if you suffer from sensitive skin. If you have oily skin, look for skin products that contain alpha hydroxy acids such as glycolic acid or salicylic acid. For dry skin look for moisturizing agents such as shea butter. In case you have sensitive skin, go for products that are all natural such as aloe vera.

- How quickly should I expect results?

Your skin may take time to respond to the treatment. It may need multiple sessions of treatment to show any results. Consult with your dermatologist about how long you need to wait for results and do not discontinue treatment earlier.

- Are there any anti ageing treatments effective for healthy skin?

Signs of aging can begin in your early 20s or 30s. You can consult a dermatologist for preventive measures. More often than not, anti-aging precautions should be adopted in the early years to retain the skin’s elasticity. This includes incorporating products that have retinoids and peptides that boost the skin’s turnover rate, promoting more collagen production. It helps in restoring the skin’s barrier and maintains its youth. Other methods for anti-aging include facial exercises, a balanced diet, and also special anti-aging treatments that include facials, dermal fillers, botox, chemical peels, and even non-ablative skin rejuvenation techniques. Depending upon your age and intensity of the signs of aging, a board-certified dermatologist will be able to recommend what’s best for you.
