A cherry angioma is a non-cancerous collection of dilated blood vessels in the skin that somewhat resembles a cherry, being small, round, and red. They are benign, common growth that can form anywhere on the body. They most commonly occur on individuals after the age of forty (40).
A spider angioma is a persistent dilated blood vessel that blanches with pressure. It is persistent, unless treated.
Angiomas can be removed by electrocautery, BBL or V Beam laser. Usually only one-two treatments are needed for removal of the angioma.
We lose collagen in our skin as we age, making the skin much less elastic. Skin pores may also get much larger, which will increase the number of facial imperfections such as sagging skin, blackheads, and oily skin. This is also associated with a skin condition called rosacea, where you may also have acne and telangiectasias (excessive redness or red lines in your skin).
Several treatment options are available. If the enlarged pores are part of the rosacea spectrum, then, medical treatment may improve the pore size and help to prevent others from forming. Often, additional treatment is necessary. Microdermabrasion, Microneedling with RF (Radio Frequency), BBL Photorejuvenation, Chemical Peels, Dermaplaning, MicroLaser Peel, and/ or advanced skincare products can stimulate collagen and elastin growth which improves the pore size. The number of treatments needed depends on the condition and age of the skin.
A seborrheic keratosis is a non-cancerous collection of mature skin cells in the skin that are rough in texture and have a “stuck on” appearance. They are usually skin tone, pink or brown. They make get inflamed and have a red rim, but this will resolve once the irritation stops. They most commonly occur on individuals after the age of forty (40). Seborrheic keratosis can be removed by cryosurgery, electrocautery, shave removal or minimized by exfoliating agents such as our Glycolic Acid 15% lotion
