Can the pulse dye laser be used for cherry angiomas? - Kare Plastic Surgery in Los Angeles

Can the pulsed dye laser be used for cherry angiomas?


A cherry angioma is a small vascular bump on the skin that may occur on the face, trunk, or extremities.  It appears as a small reddish and sometimes vascular nodule immediately under the skin.  The patients may have multiple cherry angiomas or a solitary angioma on the skin.  Consultations for cherry angiomas are very common and most patients will describe a history of minor bleeding along the area when scratched.  Cherry angiomas, much like spider veins and superficial capillaries under the skin, are benign vascular problem that can be easily treated using a vascular laser known as the pulsed dye. 


The pulsed dye laser uses life energy that is targeted against hemoglobin in the angioma or spider vein in order to heat it up and destroy it.  If you have questions about cherry angiomas or spider veins along the legs or thighs, Los Angeles plastic surgeon Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian can help solve your problems with vascular lasers known as the pulsed dye.  Dr. Karamanoukian is one of the foremost laser plastic surgeons in Los Angeles and has been featured multiple times on the Doctors television show demonstrating his approach to high-tech cosmetic procedures.
