Cleveland, OH area patients who have cherry angiomas may find them to be rather unsightly, especially when they develop in highly visible areas of the skin such as the face and hands. These common skin growths are easy to address with treatment using the Veingogh device at Seriously Skin Cosmetic and Laser Medicine.
What is a cherry angioma?
A cherry angioma is the presence of a small red growth on the skin. These are typically found on patients who are over the age of thirty. The red appearance comes from the small blood vessels inside. These growths are sometimes called Campbell de Morgan spots or senile angiomas.
In most cases, patients do not need to be concerned about these growths unless they change in their appearance or bleed, as this may be a sign of skin cancer. Some patients want them removed because of their appearance or because they become uncomfortable due to rubbing on skin or clothing. This is when patients may ask Dr. Jennifer Kish, DO about cherry angioma removal, which is performed with the use of Veingogh treatment.

Studies continue to have difficulty determining the cause of these red moles, but it is most likely due to the following factors:
- Exposure to chemicals
How does Veingogh treatment work?
For cherry angioma treatment, our team of professionals often recommend the use of the Veingogh device. Veingogh uses microburst technology to deliver heat via the Ohmic Thermolysis System. This is done to collapse the blood vessels inside of the angioma, which allows them to fade over time. The treatment offers precision treatment right where it is needed, reducing the risk of affecting the surrounding vessels and tissues. Because it is so precise and can be used on sensitive areas, it can treat angiomas on areas such as the face. This minimally invasive procedure involves little discomfort and patients do not need to schedule downtime for recovery. Patients of all skin types can enjoy treatment using the Veingogh device for cherry angioma removal.
What are some other ways to remove cherry angiomas?
If our team has decided that Veingogh treatment is not the best option for an individual, patients may want to ask about shave excision, cryosurgery, or electrocauterization.
