Small red spots on the skin, called Cherry Angiomas, can be annoying from a cosmetic point of view, although medically speaking they are entirely insignificant.
Most commonly found on the chest, abdomen, and arms, but also elsewhere on the body, these spots are extremely common and often hereditary, ranging in size from barely visible pinpoints up to several millimetres in diameter.
With time, Cherry Angiomas tend to increase in both number and in size, so it’s best to clear them as soon as possible.
At the Royal Tunbridge Wells Skin & Laser Clinic, we offer laser treatment which we have found to be the most effective way of dealing with these red spots.
How it works
Laser treatment is fast and effective, eliminating these lesions with minimal downtime. It usually removes the lesion permanently.
What can I expect?
Firstly, both a consultation and a test patch are both needed before the treatment can be carried out. These are both complimentary.
After the laser treatment, the Cherry Angioma usually becomes less red immediately and may form a small crust or scab which falls away after a few days. Because this treatment is quick, large numbers of red spots can be treated in a very short period of time.
How many treatments will I need?
Existing lesions are usually removed permanently, although new red skin spots tend to form (in new locations) over time. However, they usually take several years or more to become large enough to become very visible or require further treatment.
