Laser Treatment for Cherry Angiomas & Skin Tags
|Laser Treatment for Cherry Angiomas & Skin Tags||15mins +||From $125|
|The Cutera Excel V+ can be used to treat a wide range of unwanted skin lesions including cherry angiomas and skin tags. The production of heat in the targeted tissue cauterises skin tags to reduce blood flow and remove the lesion. For cherry angiomas, laser emits pulses of light energy that causes the blood within the angioma to coagulate, which is then reabsorbed by the body for removal. Depending on the size of the lesions, more than one treatment may be required to achieve complete removal.|
The Cutera Excel V+ (1064nm) Laser can be used to treat cherry angiomas and skin tags anywhere on the body. The treatment works by targeting & restricting the blood supply within the lesion, causing it to darken and fall off.
Laser Treatment for Cherry Angiomas & Skin Tags FAQs
What is a cherry angioma?
A cherry angioma is a small, red, blood vessel which can present anywhere on the face or body. They are often flat in appearance but can occasionally be raised. The cause of cherry angiomas is unknown, however, they often appear with age or are present from birth.
What is a skin tag?
A skin tag is a skin-coloured lesion that appears on areas of the body that experience friction such as the underarms, bra line, groin, eyelids, and the neck.
How long does the treatment take?
The treatment time depends on how many lesions are present, which can range from 15-30 minutes.
Does the treatment hurt?
As the treatment delivers heat to the skin, there can be some discomfort. However, most clients tolerate the treatment very well as it is a very quick procedure.
Is there any downtime involved?
Cherry angiomas will change appearance immediately, either lightening or darkening in colour, and will then slowly fade away within 2-4 weeks post treatment.
Skin tags will change to a dusky appearance which will then darken over 1-3 days post treatment, taking approximately 2-4 weeks to completely fall off.
