Getting Rid of Cherry Angiomas and Spider Veins

By | Treatment

If youve noticed one or more small red or pink growths that look like moles on your arms, face, or torso, you probably have cherry angiomas. These growths are usually nothing to worry about, medically speaking, but theyre not a lot of fun to look at, either, are they?

Along those same lines, spider veins are usually the result of a herniated vein ”“ due to poor circulation or a malfunctioning valve ”“ that rises to the surface of the skin and becomes visible. Again, in most cases, these little veins are nothing to worry about where your health is concerned, but how often do you find yourself wishing that they werent there?

Cherry angiomas and spider veins are both very common blemishes, and most people who have them think that they just have to live with these imperfections. Theyll try to hide them with makeup or long sleeves, but wouldnt it be nice to just go to the beach without covering up or putting on makeup? You bet, it would.

Fortunately, if you suffer from these non-threatening problems, you dont have to, “Just live with it.” You can come to Juvia Med Spa, where you can have them taken care of and eliminated with laser treatments. With a few sessions of laser skin resurfacing, your angiomas could be a thing of the past. With laser vein removal, those spider veins could be gone in no time, too.

Clear Up Cherry Angiomas and Other Blemishes With Laser Treatments

By | Treatment

Have you ever noticed a pink, round blemish on your skin? Were not talking about pimples, but rather cherry angiomas. These mole-like skin growths are worrisome if you dont know what they are, and many people grow concerned when they see them, thinking they might be cancerous.

The good news is, cherry angiomas are usually not cancerous. If you notice one on your arm, back, or torso (where they usually appear), inspect it to make sure that it has a regular shape and that it isnt bleeding. If it changes in size, bleeds, or is irregular in shape, it might be a melanoma, but this is rare.

Nonetheless, like other blemishes, while they arent necessarily dangerous, theyre still unsightly. Fortunately, though, they can be removed with laser treatments. During the procedure, the laser is focused on the angioma, and its heat destroys it. After a few sessions, the angioma disappears entirely.

A similar laser treatment can be performed on spider veins, too. These unattractive, spidery lines appear under the skin, and, while theyre not dangerous, either, you still dont want to look at them every day. However, using a laser on either end of the affected vein effectively scarifies it and prevents blood flow. This causes the vein to shrivel and die. Once it does that, it will fade away from the skin and disappear entirely.

Laser treatments for these types of blemishes can take several sessions, but they are absolutely worthwhile. Think of all the times you look at a mole, an angioma, or a spider vein and wish that it were gone. Now think of getting rid of it in just a few laser treatment sessions.
