This patient of Dr. Austin's came in concerned about a growth on her scalp. After a biopsy, Dr. Austin was able to diagnosis the growth as a pilar cyst. What are pilar cysts? These are benign growths that can develop beneath the surface of your skin, typically on the scalp. They may arise from hair follicles and are often smooth to the touch, resembling small, round bumps.
Pilar cysts are usually harmless, but they can be bothersome, causing discomfort and affecting your confidence, especially when they grow large enough to be seen by others, or get in the way of hairstyles or hat-wearing. That's where our BACD board-certified dermatologists can help!
At our practice, Dr. Austin has successfully treated countless patients struggling with these cysts. Using careful, hair-sparing surgical technique, Dr. Austin performs minimally invasive surgery that leaves you with a beautifully smooth and bump-free scalp. During the procedure, she makes a tiny incision to extract the cyst intact, minimizing any potential scarring or discomfort. Dr. Austin takes extra-special care to minimize scarring and preserve your natural hairline.
As always, it's essential to have any suspicious bumps on your scalp examined by a board-certified dermatologist. Early detection and timely removal can prevent potential complications and ensure peace of mind.
