An angioma is a benign growth that consists of small blood vessels that have become enlarged. They are common growths that can appear on almost any part of the body. One of the most common types are the small red, purple, or blue bumps of cherry and spider angiomas. Around 85% of people over 45 have several cherry angiomas.
While these small tumors are not dangerous, they may be of cosmetic concern, especially if they appear on the face or neck. We offer laser therapy to safely and effectively eliminate angiomas. Pulsed green light is absorbed by the blood vessels responsible for the condition until they are destroyed. The surrounding tissue is unharmed, and there is minimal chance of scarring with this procedure.
Sessions last between 15-30 minutes. Unlike most treatments, including excision and cryotherapy, there is no need for anesthesia.
