What is Cherry Angioma?
Cherry Angioma is a benign skin growth comprised of blood vessels, giving the growth a bright, red appearance. The little bright red dots can grow over time but start out as smooth red spots and as they get larger they protrude slightly from the skin.
How We Treat Cherry Angioma
Dr. Vanek and his staff use the Sciton® BBL™ to treat the appearance of cherry angiomas. The laser uses a specific wavelength of light that is absorbed by oxyhemoglobin found within the blood vessels. As the energy of the laser is absorbed by the oxyhemoglobin, the surrounding cells are stimulated to clot off the superficial blood vessel, reducing the appearance of the cherry angioma.
