Cherry Angioma Removal


Understanding Cherry Angiomas

Cherry angiomas are clusters of capillaries at the surface of the skin that form a small, round dome. They are common, particularly in individuals over the age of 30, and can increase in number and size with age. While the exact cause is not known, factors such as genetics, hormonal changes, and certain medical conditions may contribute to their development.

Why Remove Cherry Hemangiomas?

While cherry angiomas are not dangerous, they can be a cosmetic concern for many people. They can appear anywhere on the body but are most commonly found on the torso, arms, and legs. When they develop in prominent areas, such as the face or neck, they can affect one’s self-esteem and confidence. Removal of cherry angiomas is a simple procedure that can enhance the appearance of your skin and improve your overall sense of well-being.

Laser Treatment Options at Cupid Lips

At Cupid Lips, we specialize in non-invasive laser treatments to remove cherry angiomas effectively and safely. Our state-of-the-art clinic in West Hollywood offers the following treatment options:

VBeam® Laser

The VBeam® laser is a pulsed dye laser that targets the blood vessels within the cherry angioma. The laser emits a burst of light that is absorbed by the hemoglobin in the blood, causing the blood vessels to coagulate and be reabsorbed by the body. This process results in the gradual fading and eventual disappearance of the angioma. The VBeam® laser is precise and minimizes damage to surrounding skin, making it an excellent choice for cherry angioma removal.

Clear + Brilliant® Laser

The Clear + Brilliant® laser is known for its gentle yet effective skin rejuvenation properties. While it is typically used for overall skin improvement, it can also be utilized to treat small, superficial vascular lesions like cherry angiomas. The laser creates microscopic treatment zones in the skin, stimulating the body’s natural healing processes and reducing the appearance of cherry angiomas with minimal discomfort and downtime.

Palomar Icon™ Laser

The Palomar Icon™ laser system combines intense pulsed light (IPL) with fractional laser technology, making it versatile for treating various skin conditions, including cherry angiomas. The IPL component targets the blood vessels within the angioma, while the fractional laser promotes skin repair and collagen production. This dual-action approach ensures comprehensive treatment and effective results.

Benefits of Laser Treatment for Cherry Angiomas

Laser treatment offers several advantages for removing cherry angiomas:

  • Precision: Targeted laser therapy ensures only the angioma is treated, preserving surrounding healthy tissue.
  • Quick and Effective: Laser treatments are fast and can effectively remove cherry angiomas in one or a few sessions.
  • Minimal Downtime: Most laser treatments involve little to no downtime, allowing you to resume daily activities immediately.
  • Non-Invasive: Laser treatments are non-surgical, reducing the risk of complications and scarring.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Yes, cherry angiomas do not typically go away on their own. However, they are harmless and only need to be removed for cosmetic reasons or if they become irritated.

Most patients experience minimal discomfort during laser treatment. A topical anesthetic may be applied to enhance comfort during the procedure.

The number of treatments required depends on the size and number of cherry angiomas. Many can be removed in a single session, but larger or more numerous angiomas may require additional treatments.

After laser treatment, the treated area may be slightly red or swollen, but these effects typically subside within a few days. The cherry angioma will gradually fade and disappear over time.
