Pilar Cyst Treatment in Norwich

If you have a pilar cyst on your scalp or body and are seeking professional advice, The Doctors Laser Clinic in Poringland, Norwich, is the clinic to turn to. We have extensive experience in addressing pilar cyst concerns.

What is a Pilar Cyst?

A Pilar Cyst is a type of skin cyst that predominantly forms on the scalp, though it can also appear on other parts of the body. These cysts are typically skin-coloured, varying in size from a few millimetres to several centimetres. Most pilar cysts are benign. You will see them in shades like red, pink, yellow, and white. It is important to have them professionally assessed to rule out any health risks. Factors such as genetic predisposition, skin trauma, hormonal imbalances, and hair follicle infections can contribute to their development.

Appearance of Pilar Cysts

Pilar cysts manifest themselves as lumps under the skin, predominantly on the scalp. They can vary in size from a few millimetres to several centimetres. These cysts are usually skin-coloured, but shades like red, pink, yellow, and white can also appear. While most pilar cysts are benign, it’s essential to have them examined to ensure they don’t pose any health risks. We’ve treated numerous pilar cysts, so rest assured, you’re in safe hands.

Why Do Pilar Cysts Form?

Pilar cysts can develop due to various factors, including:

  • Genetic predisposition
  • Skin trauma
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Hair follicle infections

The Pilar Cyst Removal Process

Initial Consultation and Assessment

The journey towards cyst removal at The Doctors Laser Clinic begins with an initial consultation. Our doctor will assess the pilar cyst during this session and discuss your medical history. This step is crucial to understand the cyst’s origin and rule out potential complications. Our team will then outline the treatment options, ensuring you are fully informed and comfortable with the proposed approach.

Before the Procedure

You will receive detailed instructions on how to prepare for the removal treatment, including any necessary adjustments to your routine medications or skincare regimen.

During the Procedure

Comfort and safety are our top priorities. The treatment area will be numbed, and you will be under the careful supervision of our medical team throughout the procedure.

After the Procedure

Post-treatment care is essential for optimal healing. Most patients can return to regular activities immediately, but specific advice will be given based on the cyst’s size and location. While some discomfort may occur as the anaesthesia wears off, it can typically be managed with over-the-counter painkillers.

Post-Treatment Considerations

Returning to Work

Depending on the cyst’s size and location, most patients can resume their regular activities immediately. However, it’s best to consult with our doctor for personalised advice.


Any cyst removal will leave a mark. At The Doctors Laser Clinic, we specialise in techniques that minimise scarring. If you have concerns about keloid or hypertrophic scarring, please share them during the consultation.


The treatment area will be numbed, ensuring a pain-free procedure. Some discomfort might arise once the anaesthesia wears off, but over-the-counter painkillers can help.
