When you are searching online for “Cherry angioma treatment near me” Medkin Clinics are happy to help. Cherry angiomas are small red growths that appear on the skin. Largely harmless, a cherry angioma is a cluster of burst skin vessels that can appear anywhere on the body. We don’t recommend you try a home remedy to get rid of cherry angiomas (see below)
For many people, they are not aesthetically pleasing, especially when they develop in an awkward area, but cherry angiomas can be removed quickly and easily with the latest treatments.
Cherry Angiomas – Treatment Locally in Nottingham, Derby and Chesterfield
Some cherry angiomas can exceed half a centimetre in size. It can be tempting to try and get rid of them by scratching, squeezing or piercing them. But this will result in bleeding and potential infection. These marks are most common on the torso and thighs but also appear on the face, neck, scalp and arms.
You should consult a dermatologist if you experience pain, notice excessive bleeding or if the angioma begins to alter in appearance.
Cryotherapy treatment for cherry angiomas – Permanent solution in 30 seconds
Cryotherapy, however, is a very effective treatment for cherry angiomas. A medical practitioner uses liquid nitrogen to freeze the angioma, causing the angioma to blister or peel before falling off. Read more about Cryotherapy and it’s most popular uses.
The good news about Cryotherapy is that it is a permanent solution for treating these things and not painful, although you may experience a slight tingling sensation.
How it works
Cryotherapy uses low temperatures to remove imperfections such as warts or skin tags. Following an initial consultation of approximately 15 minutes, the process takes between 5 and 25 seconds, so it really is a super-fast and effective treatment. We use a CryoPen to deliver our range of Cryotherapy treatments, which emits a fine jet of nitrous oxide under high pressure, which destroys the tissue by freezing the cellular fluid.
What can Cryotherapy treat?
Skin Tags – skin tags are simply noncancerous, pain-free growths on the skin and often appear under the eyelids or armpits.
Cherry Angioma – these red moles can appear anywhere on the skin and are caused by broken small blood vessels
Solar Lentigo – this refers to a patch of darkened skin, which is harmless, but some people may feel self-conscious about.
Age Spots – these are very common as we get older and vary in shape and size. They usually appear on areas that have experienced the most exposure to the sun such as the face and arms.
Milia – these tiny bumps on the skin are very common and often appear on eyelids and cheeks
Warts – Warts can be distinguished from verrucas because they look like a solid blister or a small cauliflower. They are contagious and can easily be passed on so Cryotherapy is an effective way to quickly deal with them.
Viral Verrucae – these appear on the soles of the feet and often have a black dot at the centre
So, what are the options for treatment and should you try home remedies?
Natural Remedies Beware: Skin Cherry Angiomas
There are a number of natural remedies whose properties are claimed to reduce or remove cherry angiomas.
Apple cider vinegar contains acetic acid which may have curative properties. However, acetic acid can cause irritation and burns on the skin.
Due to its natural antibacterial properties, tea tree essential oil is thought to dry out the angioma. However, cherry angiomas are not thought to be caused by bacterial, virus or fungal infections.
Iodine has been found to improve the appearance of skin and applying a little iodised salt for a few weeks may help improve the appearance of an angioma. Too much iodine in the body can lead to thyroid problems, so care should be taken.
The process of applying natural remedies is slow (taking 20 to 30 minutes a day) and may take several weeks for there to be any noticeable effects.
Medical professionals would not recommend any of the above treatments and there is no scientific evidence to show any are particularly effective in the treatment of cherry angiomas.
