Whilst they can be harmless, if you notice any changes in their appearance you should schedule an appointment with your doctor. They may indicate other and also more serious skin conditions, such as skin cancer.
Who do they affect?
Cherry angiomas typically affect people over the age of 30. However, anyone can have them.
What causes them?
The exact cause of Cherry Angiomas is unknown, however it has been suggested that there is a genetic factor that makes some people more susceptible to them. They have also been linked to pregnancy, chemical exposure and climate. The broken blood vessels inside the Cherry angiomas give them their reddish appearance.
Does Advanced Electrolysis hurt?
We recommend you apply a topical anaesthetic cream thickly, covered with a plaster one hour prior to the treatment to minimise discomfort during the treatment. Such creams are available from any chemist or pharmacy, such as Emla or Amitop.
Are there any side effects from the treatment?
There is no recovery time as such from advanced electrolysis; you can return to work and normal activities immediately after a treatment.
Depending on the particular skin condition being treated and the size of it, you can expect some post treatment discomfort and scabbing as the area heals.
If the area being treated is on your face, you may wish to plan treatment around social events if you do not wish to attend them before post-treatment healing has completed.
Is there any danger of infection?
Any instrument used in contact with the skin is disposed of after each use. This is especially important with the needle and the needle holder. All areas are sterilised, at least twice, with a specialised skin and instrument disinfectant.
