Fine Wire Diathermy with AcuSect
Cherry angiomas, colloquially known as ‘senile angiomas’ or ‘Campbell de Morgan spots’, are commonplace skin growths distinguished by their vibrant red colour and circular shape. Generally seen in adults aged 30 and above, these skin formations arise from broken blood vessels located within the angioma. Despite posing no significant health risk, it’s vital to monitor cherry angiomas for any variations in their colour or dimensions.
As we age, these skin growths may escalate in both quantity and size, occasionally leading to worry or self-consciousness. However, there’s an effective and safe treatment available to aid in eliminating these red spots from your skin.
Treatment for cherry angiomas is typically pursued for cosmetic reasons or in cases where they cause discomfort or bleed due to friction or trauma. A procedure that has proven to be both efficient and cost-effective is Fine Wire Diathermy with AcuSect. This method uses a mild current to cauterise the vessels and coagulate the angiomas.
Following treatment, the affected area may appear mildly inflamed, a condition that usually subsides within a few hours to a few days, depending on the size of the angioma. Immediate post-treatment results may show angiomas that are blanched or darkened, but the final results become apparent within a few days. Although cherry angiomas typically do not reoccur once treated, new ones can develop over time. Hence, many clients opt for treatments every 2 to 3 years to maintain clear skin. The cost of cherry angioma treatment is determined during the consultation, considering all relevant factors.
