Cherry hemangiomas are like red dots varying in size from 1 mm to 5 mm commonly. The underlying cause is not clearly understood. They are small vascular malformations made out of clusters of capillaries.
The frequency of cherry hemangiomas increases with age.
Cherry Hemangiomas Treatment
Mostly cherry hemangiomas are a cosmetic nuisance and more so when they bleed while shaving on the legs. Methods used in the past to treat Cherry Hemangiomas included traditionally cryosurgery or electrosurgery (destroying/burning the tissue with a probe that has an electric current have been used. These methods may cause scarring. Dr. Shah used IPL (Intense pulsed light) to treat Cherry Hemangiomas successfully without scarring until a few years ago but for the past 4 years has switched to the Aura i laser (532 nm wavelength KTP laser) with better success and no scarring. In most cases it only requires one cherry hemangiomas treatment to solve the problem. They appear greyish in color upon treatment immediately and after 2 weeks the remnants fall off and look like normal skin with no scarring.
In most patients, the number and size of cherry angiomas increases with advancing age. They are harmless, having no relation to cancer at all.
Cherry angiomas occur in all races, ethnic backgrounds, and sexes.
