Red Spot Removal
Performed at our Duluth, GA medical office, north of Atlanta.
Red spots (also known as vascular lesions) are generally harmless. There is a wide variety of types of red spots, from patches of pink skin to bright red, raised dots called cherry angiomas. Cherry angiomas are typically genetic and can appear at any age, but they tend to show up more often as patients get older. There is also a type of red spot called a hemangioma, which is a birthmark that appears in infants and young children, but we do not perform these treatments for young kids or babies at Laser Lights – only adults.
Red spots are the result of abnormal blood vessels, and Laser Lights Cosmetic Laser Center in Atlanta, Georgia offers red spot removal for adults on the face and body. The laser targets the redness within the blood vessels, closing them off and allowing your body to absorb and expel them naturally. Red spots can often be removed in one treatment with no downtime, but every patient is unique and more sessions may be needed for thorough results.
Is there anything I can do to prevent bright red spots from forming on my skin?
Generally, no, angiomas are not preventable—they’re typically a genetic trait, and they often increase in size and/or number as you get older. However, the laser treatments to remove them are rather quick and easy, so they aren’t a problem you’ll need to deal with for very long.
Will laser red spot removal harm my surrounding skin?
When you’re in the hands of a licensed and experienced professional (like our medical staff at Laser Lights), side effects are rare. The laser is actually customized to be drawn to the red in the blood vessels, so it focuses its energy on the unwanted blood vessels, not on your skin.
Will my red spots return after laser treatment?
Once your body has removed the abnormal blood vessels that formed your red spot or cherry angioma, they’re gone for good. But If you’re prone to these types of vascular lesions, new ones may form nearby, so you may want to return to treat any new angiomas that may appear.
