Haemangiomas are non-cancerous, harmless, red skin growths caused by an abnormal collection of blood vessels> Due to their general appearance resembling the surface of a strawberry, they are usually called “strawberry marks”. Haemangiomas usually appear on different parts of the body, even in the mouth area as lip haemangiomas, as cutaneous growths or on internal organs, particularly the liver.
Skin haemangiomas are most of the times asymptomatic, but being raised growths, they can sometimes be scratched and cause bleeding, in which case pressure should quickly be applied in order to stop it. The cause of haemangiomas is not known precisely, but specialists consider that certain proteins in the placenta are causing them during gestation. In most cases, haemangiomas disappear completely by the age of 10, with a peak in development in the first 2 years of life, continuing with a “rest” phase and then a regressing period, until complete disappearance.
Because of this reason, haemangiomas do not necessarily require removal, but for aesthetic reasons, or to prevent any harm coming to them that may lead to other complications, such as infections, cosmetic treatment may be suitable.
At Renew Skin & Health Clinic, haemangioma removal is available with the Pulse Dye laser, a non-surgical therapy that uses organic dye mixed in a solvent, which works on the principle of selective thermolysis, namely the thermal energy produced by the laser will be absorbed by the cells of the targeted skin lesion or growth and destroy it from within. The advantages of the haemangioma removal laser treatment in Northampton is that the procedure is quick, painless and virtually scarless, the laser acting solely upon the growth itself, without causing any damage to the adjacent tissues.
Given the minimum invasiveness of the procedure, the pulse dye laser is an amazing cosmetic alternative even for the lip haemangioma removal treatment in Northampton. The targeted skin area will form a scab, which will peel off naturally, leaving minimal to no scarring whatsoever.
