Angiomas are benign growths made up of small blood vessels. They can appear anywhere on the body. The three most common types are spider angiomas, angiokeratomas, and cherry angiomas.
Occasionally, an angioma may become irritated from external factors such as rubbing against clothing and will need to be removed to avoid further problems. However, since the majority of angiomas are harmless, most people have them treated for cosmetic reasons.
Angioma Removal and Treatment
The three most common ways to remove angiomas include electrodesiccation, which uses an electric needle to destroy the blood vessels in the growth, and laser treatment, which uses a beam of intense, focused light to remove the growth. Our Board-Certified Dermatologist will work with you to determine the safest and most effective course of action for your skin.
