Superficial Brown Spots & Cherry or Spider Angiomas
Superficial brown spots, and cherry or spider angiomas (little red spots or web like blood vessels) commonly appear on the skin as we age. Although usually harmless, lesions may become a cosmetic concern for patients, as they often appear on the face. They should also be monitored regularly to check for any changes or new spots.
These skin spots can often be effectively removed with laser treatments like:
- Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)
- Broad Band Light (BBL).
- Vbeam® Perfecta Laser
- Diolite® Laser
The laser energy applied during these procedures reduces the appearance of dilated blood vessels or brown spots over several sessions, until they are barely visible on the skin. The overall texture of the skin is also improved, as the size of individual pores is reduced and collagen production is stimulated.
