WHAT IS ACTIVE A HAEMANGIOMA?
A haemangioma is a benign tumor that results from the abnormal growth of blood vessels in the skin or internal organs. It is also known as an infantile haemangioma or a strawberry mark. A haemangioma may appear at birth or within the first month of life, and usually fades away by age 10. Most hemangiomas do not cause any problems, but some may bleed, ulcerate, or interfere with vital functions depending on their location and size.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Laser and IPL (intense pulsed light) are two types of light-based therapies that can be used to treat haemangioma, which are benign tumors of blood vessels. Laser and IPL work by delivering pulses of light energy to the haemangioma, which causes the blood vessels to shrink and collapse. The haemangioma then gradually fades and disappears over time. Laser and IPL are usually safe and effective, but they may cause some side effects such as pain, swelling, bruising, scarring, or changes in skin color.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING THE TREATMENT?
Laser or IPL therapy works by delivering pulses of light energy to the hemangioma, causing the blood vessels to shrink and fade. The procedure takes about 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the size and location of the hemangioma.
AFTER THE TREATMENT
After the procedure, you may experience some swelling, redness, bruising, or blistering in the treated area. These are normal side effects and should subside within a few days. You should avoid sun exposure, apply ice packs, and use gentle skin care products to help with the healing process. You should also follow your doctor’s instructions on wound care and follow-up visits.
Laser or IPL therapy is generally safe and effective for hemangioma removal, but there are some possible risks and complications, such as infection, scarring, skin discoloration, or incomplete resolution of the hemangioma.
HOW MANY SESSIONS
The number of sessions needed to remove a hemangioma with laser or ipl depends on several factors, such as the size, location, depth and type of the hemangioma, the type of laser or ipl device used, the settings and parameters of the treatment, and the individual response of the patient. In general, most hemangiomas require multiple sessions, ranging from 3 to 10 or more, spaced at least 4 to 6 weeks apart. The sessions are usually short, lasting from 15 to 30 minutes. The results may vary from person to person, and some hemangiomas may not respond well to laser or ipl therapy.
