Laser recovery and cyst treatment options

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

So I had a cyst growing on my face and I went to the doc. The doc zapped it with a laser (it was an ablative laser).Anyway it's been a couple of months now and I've still got an open circular wound where the laser hit it that doesn't seem to be healing very much.

Is there anything I can do to help things heal? I've tried keeping the area moist with petroleum jelly and a couple of other similar products but it doesn't seem to make much of a difference.

Also, the actual cyst has gone down a little bit in terms of size, but it's still there. The doc said that if it doesn't go away they can cut it out but that will leave a scar. Are there any other procedures that can help get rid of a cyst that will leave less of a scar? (it's been injected with cortisone before so this isn't an option).

Thanks a lot in advance for the help everyone!
