The cause of hemangiomas is unknown, but they are fairly common. The raised and discolored tissue is almost always benign, posing no medical risk. However, the appearance of hemangiomas can sometimes be extremely damaging to the overall appearance, and they must be treated to return the skin to an even texture and tone.
Hemangiomas can occur on any part of the body, and typically form early in life. Some will go away on their own, but most will require laser treatment or surgical removal. Often, waiting for the hemangioma to go away on its own is not an option, and they are treated immediately so as not to have damaging impact on the patient appearance.
Our cutting-edge laser technology can treat most hemangiomas without surgery. Some discolorations can be resolved in a single treatment, while others may require multiple treatments over a period of weeks.* The duration of treatment depends on the density of pigmentation of the hemangioma. Cost of treatment will vary with the size and severity of the hemangioma, but our advanced laser technology keeps the price down, sometimes as little as $100 per treatment.
Occasionally, hemangiomas are raised to the point of needing surgical removal. We can remove the hemangioma, and treat any resulting scar with our fractional laser, so there is no evidence of the hemangioma or scar after treatment.* This is ideal, as scar treatment is easiest when done immediately after surgery.
Consultations are always free, so stop by and let us help you restore confidence in your appearance. You'll be amazed how quickly we can have your skin returned to its natural tone.
