The sebaceous cyst located on the scalp is known by the name of Lupia.

Clinical picture

They are bumps that move freely under the skin, grow slowly, and are painless.
They become very frequently infected and present the following signs and symptoms: redness of the skin, pain, increase in local temperature, drainage of a cheesy gray-white material.


At Hoogstra Medical Centers a new laser treatment is performed that consists of making a small hole in the most protruding part of the cyst. Thanks to the high impact speed of the Lotus II laser, it is not necessary to perform local anesthesia or place anesthetic creams.
Once the hole has been made, the cyst is drained and, once the drainage is finished, the Lotus II Laser is programmed in long pulse mode. This produces contraction of the walls of the sac and the contraction of the same.
After this procedure, the patient can continue their daily life. This procedure is completely painless and does not leave any scars.
