Cherry Angioma

WHAT CAUSES A CHERRY ANGIOMA?

The exact cause of cherry angiomas is not fully understood, but they are believed to be caused by an overgrowth of blood vessels in the skin. Some factors that may contribute to the development of cherry angiomas include genetics, aging, sun exposure, pregnancy, and certain medications or medical conditions.

Cherry angiomas are usually harmless and do not require treatment, but in rare cases, they may bleed or become irritated and need to be removed.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Laser treatment for cherry angiomas involves using a focused beam of light energy to target the blood vessels that make up the growth. The heat from the laser destroys the blood vessels, causing the cherry angioma to shrink and eventually disappear.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING THE TREATMENT?

Before the treatment, the patient will have an initial consultation with the somatologist. During this consultation, the somatologist will examine the cherry angiomas and ask about the patient’s medical history to ensure they are a good candidate for the treatment.

The patient will be given instructions on how to prepare their skin for the treatment. They may be asked to avoid certain skincare products or medications for a certain period before the treatment.

During the treatment, the somatologist will use a laser device to target the blood vessels in the cherry angiomas. The laser will heat and destroy the blood vessels, causing the cherry angiomas to fade or disappear entirely.

AFTER THE TREATMENT

After the treatment, the skin around the cherry angiomas may be red and swollen. They may also be advised to avoid certain activities or sun exposure for a few days.

HOW MANY SESSIONS

The number of sessions required to remove cherry angiomas at a laser clinic can vary depending on the size and number of the angiomas as well as the type of laser used. In most cases, 1-3 treatments are sufficient to remove the cherry angiomas completely.

However, some patients may require additional treatments if the angiomas are particularly large or if they have multiple angiomas.
