Cherry angioma treatment in Santa Monica

Pulsed dye laser remains the gold standard for cherry angiomas. I would selectively treat these angiomas and allow them to flake off after a week.

Treatment of cherry angioma

I would recommend using a pulsed dye laser for treating your cherry angioma.  One treatment frequently will take care of this issue.

We have a winner-Pulsed Dye Laser Treatment for Cherry Angioma

A V-Beam Pulsed Dye laser works best for cherry angiomas. Some scabbing may occur with treatment, but typically the body reabsorbs the angioma. See an expert. Best, Dr. Emer.

Pulse dye laser for angioma

The pulse dye laser is so easy and safe, I would recommend this for your cherry angioma.  I do sometimes use electrocautery for angiomas, which also works well.
