Also known as cherry moles, cherry angiomas are benign vascular skin lesions which commonly develop with age. These small, red moles may be smooth or raised on the skin, and they often appear on the chest, shoulders, arms and legs. While these growths do not typically pose a cause for medical concern, some individuals may wish to explore cherry mole removal for cosmetic reasons. Cherry angiomas on easily bumped areas of the body may also cause pain and discomfort over time, as they may bleed if scratched open.
Cherry Mole Removal: How & Why It’s Done
If you are interested in cherry mole removal, it’s important to visit a reputable dermatology practice such as Kessel Dermatology in Hamilton Square, NJ. Our skin care professionals treat cherry angiomas using the state-of-the-art excel V+™ laser by Cutera. Here are few key things to know about how it works:
- The excel V+™ delivers clinically proven pulses of light with precision, allowing a practitioner to target the patient’s specific areas of concern while leaving the surrounding skin unaffected.
- This versatile, customizable laser can be used to treat a wide array of skin issues – including rosacea, acne and more – on patients of any skin tone.
So, how does excel V+™ laser treatment work to reduce the appearance of a cherry angioma specifically? Simply put, the laser emits pulses of light energy that promote blood coagulation within the lesion, causing it to be reabsorbed by the body. The intensity of the laser can be adjusted to target the smallest of lesions, even in sensitive skin areas.
