Hi, I am in search for the least invasive and an optimum solution to remove a 4mm benign Angioma (diagnosed by a medical dermatologist four years ago) on the right hand side of my nose. The site below mentions that "Blue vessels are generally unsuitable for light or laser treatment, " and Sclerotherapy for the blue Angiomas. Thanks in advance for your expert's opinions and advice.
Can Sclerotherapy treat a blue Angioma on nose?

Angioma of the lip is best treated with pulse dye laser
Sclerotherapy is not the best option for angiomata of the lip.

Sclerotherapy vs. PDL for an angioma
Sclerotherapy may not be the best option. I would suggest pulsed dye laser to remove the angioma.
The best treatment for a nose angioma would be a topical laser. I use the dornier 940 diode.

Thank you for your question. Angiomas can be treated with a pulse dye laser, such as the Vbeam. If the vessels are very deep and blue than the the Nd YAG 1064 or Alexandrite laser can be used. I would recommend you make an appointment with a board certified dermatologist who specializing in laser treatments for an evaluation and treatment protocol.

The best treatment is a vascular laser and sometimes you can use needle desiccation. The most important thing is that you see a physician with experience for treatment and who is well trained in lasers. Best, Dr. Emer.
