Cherry Angiomas

Campbell de Morgan spots, also known as cherry angiomas or ruby haemangiomas or blood spots, are cherry red papules on the skin containing an abnormal proliferation of blood vessels. They occur with greater frequency as we get older, sometimes leading people to call them senile angioma. They are the most common kind of angioma and though normally present on the trunk of the body they may also occur on arms, legs and the head. They are usually no larger than about 6 mm. The Ellipe Nd:YAG 1064 laser can treat them very successfully

How does Ellipse treatment work?

Ellipse treatment uses a precisely calculated pulse of laser energy, exactly directed to the blood spot being treated. This causes the blood inside the vessel to heat up; causing the wall of the vessel to collapse. The vessel is reabsorbed naturally by your white blood cells. The skin surrounding the vessel is not affected by the treatment.

Does the treatment hurt?

In a word No. Ellipse uses the latest in cooling techniques – SoftCool™ – to minimize discomfort and protect the surrounding skin.

Do I need to take special precautions?

Avoid sun exposure in the four weeks up to treatment. After treatment, you should avoid sun exposure for 30 days in the treated area. Use sun protection (minimum SPF 30) if sun exposure cannot be avoided.

What can I expect after treatment?

The blood spots will turn black or brown directly after treatment, most will fade away gradually over the next few weeks. Normally patients experience a little redness and slight itch (lasting up to 2 days) in the treated area.
