What are Cherry Angiomas?
Cherry Angiomas are common skin growths that can grow on most areas of your body. Also known as Campbell de Morgan Spots, they are small, benign spots made up of clusters of capillaries they look like small red dots which appear at the surface of the skin.
They range in colour from bright red to purple most often appear on the face, lips, chest or body as result of tiny capillaries at the skin’s surface clustering together and dilating.
This type of skin growth is typically not a cause for concern unless you notice something unusual about i.e. if it bleeds often or changes in size, shape, or colour. Consult your doctor if you notice any changes in appearance as these could be symptoms of a skin cancer.
At Skin Smart Clinic a single laser treatment can effectively treat Cherry Angiomas spots. It is also possible to treat multiple lesions at the same time. It is a non-invasive procedure and will take a couple of seconds to treat one lesion.
The Gentle Max Pro Laser targets the area with energy pulses leaving the surrounding area undisturbed. The haemoglobin inside the capillary absorbs the energy and causes the blood to vaporise and the capillary simply collapses and shrinks. The treated capillary will turn darker during the treatment. The treated blood vessels will in time disappear naturally as the body dissolves the capillary fragments away.
The latest advances in laser technology have given us a method to that safely treats unsightly blood vessels without any complications. The treatment for these broken capillaries is so precise and controlled making it possible to gently eliminate the unwanted vessels efficiently and with minimal downtime. Results can be seen in as little as one treatment with the Gentle Max Pro’s Medical Grade Laser.
Normally 1-2 treatments are effective to remove completely.
