Abscesses care generally caused by a weakened immune system that cannot fight against the bacteria in the body, permitting infections to occur, but there are also other factors that can cause the appearance of abscesses such as inflamed hair follicles or boils, obstructed oil-producing or sweat glands, minor breaks or punctures of the skin. Abscesses are not only unaesthetic skin growths, as these tender, soft, puss and debris-filled bags at the surface or just underneath the skin can also become problematic for the health, because if left untreated, the abscesses develop, and all the liquefied dead cells, debris and bacteria can penetrate into deeper tissue and further, into the bloodstream, causing fever and illness symptoms, not to mention excessive pain.

Abscesses can appear anywhere on the body, but most often they occur in the armpits, areas around the anus and vagina, the groin and the base of the spine. If left untreated, the abscess will develop, its content creating tension under the skin, inflaming the surrounding tissue, the pain sensation being caused precisely by this pressure and inflammation. As mentioned above, people with weakened immune systems and suffering from diseases that affect it are more prone to developing abscesses. Regardless of this aspect, anyone from Northampton dealing or suspecting to deal with abscesses are welcomed to Renew Skin & Health Clinic to benefit from our minor surgery procedure for abscess drainage and removal.

Even though the abscess removal procedure is surgical, it is still minimally invasive, safe, almost painless, as we use local anesthetics, highly effective and minimally scarring. Prior to the abscess removal treatment, our private dermatologists or GPs will perform a consultation which consists in the skin examination, medical history and current health condition assessment, so we can set a clear diagnosis (there are skin conditions resembling abscesses that need to be ruled out) and based on this, an appropriate treatment. The doctor performing the minor surgery will cut open the abscess and completely drain its pus and debris contains, covering afterwards the treated area with a bandage to maintain it sterile. You will also be provided with home care instructions and even abscess prevention recommendations.

Renew Skin & Health Clinic benefits from highly experienced practitioners and dermatologists who have achieved great success in our patients’ treatments, either cosmetic or medical. People in Northampton can thus trustfully appeal to us by simply contacting out Head Office on 01926 422 454, to book their abscess removal treatment or consultation. Another advantage of this procedure is that it is a same day treatment, so you can have the consultation and treatment right afterwards, and you do not require any hospitalizations, so you can leave the clinic after the abscess treatment. Our operators will provide you will any information you may require.
