Cherry Angiomas are a type of skin lesion. They are named due to their distinctive red colour, caused by broken or damaged blood vessels within them. Cherry Angiomas can be flat or raised and are usually found on the torso, arms and shoulders (although they can appear anywhere.) they can often appear as we age or for women during a period of hormonal changes such as pregnancy
This type of lesion is benign and should not cause you any problems, but they may bleed if they are scratched, rubbed or knocked. Cherry Angiomas will not resolve on their own, but they can be removed easily.
Cherry Angioma can be treated using a pulsed dye laser or PDL, such as Regenlite, this laser has been used for many years on skin lesions and is very effective, it normally takes just one treatment.
Additionally, thermocoagulation could be used to treat Cherry Angiomas; which directly applies heat to shut down the blood supply to the lesion, causing it to fade. At our skin clinic, we use the Veinwave device.
