Laser Spider Vein Removal and Cherry Angioma Removal
Superficial leg veins causing red, blue or purple discolorations are sometimes referred to as spider veins, especially when they resemble a spider web pattern. The medical term from them is "telangiectasia." While they are most frequently seen in the thighs, ankles and calves, they can appear anywhere on the body, They can start appearing in your 20s and become more visible as you age.
We even treat the tiny little red capillaries in the face most commonly on the cheeks and nose.
A cherry angioma, also referred to as a cherry hemangioma, Campbell de Morgan spots, or senile angiomas, is a common skin growth containing an abnormal proliferation of tiny blood vessels. These growths are benign and do not cause any discomfort. Cherry angiomas are usually found in adults 30 years of age or older.
We treat small spider veins and cherry angiomas with a laser. During the procedure, a laser light will be focused directly at the area of concern. They tiny capillary/spider vein or cherry angioma is destroyed without damaging your skin. No incisions or needles are used for laser therapy.
Most patients can return to normal activities the same day. Smaller veins may disappear immediately after treatment, while larger veins turn dark and fade over the next few months.
