BLOOD SPOT (CHERRY ANGIOMA) REMOVAL
PRICE: FROM £55
Blood Spots, or Cherry Angiomas, are common skin growths that can develop on most areas of your body. They’re also known as Senile Angiomas or Campbell de Morgan spots. The collection of small blood vessels inside a cherry angioma give them a reddish appearance.
This type of skin growth is typically not a cause for concern unless it bleeds often or changes in size, shape, or colour. Talk to your doctor if you notice any bleeding or changes in appearance.
A Cherry Angioma is often bright red, circular or oval in shape, and small — usually ranging in size from a pinpoint to a few millimetres in diameter. Some Cherry Angiomas appear smooth and even with your skin, while others appear slightly raised. They most often grow on the torso, arms, legs, and shoulders. Bleeding can occur if the angioma is scratched, rubbed, or cut open.
The exact cause of red moles is unknown, but there may be a genetic factor that makes certain people more likely to get them.
Cherry Angiomas have been linked to pregnancy, exposure to chemicals, certain medical conditions, and climate. There also appears to be a link between cherry angiomas and age. They are usually found on people aged 30 and older.
DOES BLOOD SPOT (CHERRY ANGIOMA) REMOVAL HURT?
The treatment relatively painless and rarely requires any local anaesthetic. However, if the Cherry Angioma is large or you are concerned, a numbing cream can be applied before treatment. After treatment the skin left behind may be tender for a few days and will need to be covered. It is also best to use a strong sunscreen on the area.
