Cherry angiomas are mainly a cosmetic nuisance, although they can become irritated and bleed from trauma. If left alone, cherry angiomas will remain on the skin indefinitely. There is some evidence that family history and hormonal changes play a role in their development.
What are my treatment options?
We offer minimally invasive options for the treatment of cherry angiomas: Cutera Excel® V and Veinwave™. Both of these treatments target the underlying blood vessels, causing them to heat up and close down. During the healing process you can expect a small scab where the cherry angioma was. This scab will fall off in about a week. Large angiomas that have been present for a long time may require more than one treatment session.
