Haemangiomas are red and lumpy patches on the skin caused by an abnormal and dense aggregation of blood vessels. As they are found mostly in children and can be present at birth, they fall under the popular name of “birthmarks”. Haemagiomas are harmless or benign tumors and tend to recede as the child develops, however some can persist for life. The skin affected by these patches tends to be sensitive and prone to bleeding especially if scratched. The haemangioma removal laser treatment in Stratford upon Avon allows for and easy way of achieving clear and unblemished skin.
The aspect of haemangiomas, with the bright red colour and the bumpy surface, has earned them the name of “strawberry marks”. They can be found on any part of the body including the lip, back or legs. The size varies from a few millimeters to a few centimeters and the colour intensity of the mark depends on how deep they are in the skin, the brightest ones resting very close to the surface. The development of haemangiomas predominantly occurs in the first year of the infants’ life, after which their growth slows down and begins to regress. 90% of these lesions disappear by the age of 10.
The exact cause of haemangiomas is not yet fully known to the medical community. Although they are not associated with any serious medical conditions, a minor injury received on the patch may lead to infections, ulcers and other complications, while haemangiomas located near the genital or lip region can have a negative effect on normal bodily functions. If the mark is located on the face, the child may become self-conscious especially when interacting with other children, leading to a negative psychological impact. For these reasons or for an aesthetically pleasing skin, you may wish to try the haemangioma removal laser treatment in Stratford Upon Avon provided by Renew Skin & Health Clinic.
This treatment is possible due to the Pulse Dye laser device, a modern approach to dermatological issues. An organic dye is mixed with a solvent and the laser light passes through it and onto the skin. By using the selective thermolysis principle, our experts ensure that the heat from the pulse dye laser is absorbed by the afflicted tissue causing it to degrade while leaving the healthy surrounding tissue unharmed. After a few sessions, the area will heal and form a scab which will eventually fall revealing the new, unblemished skin. The lip haemangioma removal laser treatment in Stratford Upon Avon is a painless and virtually scarless non-surgical technique for dermatological issues, without the fuss of hospitalisation.
Our experts at Renew Skin & Health Clinic will recommend a medical consultation before undergoing the lip haemangioma removal laser treatment in Stratford Upon Avon. This is to ensure that there will be no side effects and that the patient is eligible for the treatment.
