Skin Moles & Growths
Cherry angiomas are little red bumpy growths on the body. While not a medical concern, they can be of cosmetic concern to some. Young people can get a cherry angioma, most cherry angiomas are seen in pregnancy or later in the older age, hence the phrase Senile Angioma, or Campbell De Morgan Spots. Some patients do not like the many numbers of “red dots” that appear all over the skin of the body and wish to have cherry angiomas treated.
As mentioned, Cherry Angiomas are common in pregnancy and they can get so big that the bleed. As if pregnancy is not hard enough, the bleeding angiomas give the expecting mother too much trouble. Therefore, if you are planning to conceive and have a larger cherry angioma, you might want to have it treated before embarking on a pregnancy. After a confirming diagnosis, cherry angiomas can be treated safely and effectively. Treatment options include lasers, heat devices or surgical removal, depending on their size, number, location and the patient.
The gold standard of treatment for Cherry Angiomas (or Senile Angiomas!) is the Vbeam laser. Just one spot treatment with the Vbeam laser can effectively eliminate a cherry angioma permanently! If you have a predisposition to forming cherry angiomas, you might get new ones, regardless of getting the ones you have treated or not.

What our patients are saying:
I had rosacea that caused redness and broken vessels on my face. Dr. Kormeili addressed all of my concerns and set about fixing the redness. I was super excited after my first laser treatment as the improvement was immediately noticeable. The second laser treatment made me look and feel amazing…
I had really bad psoriasis on my scalp that flaked all over my clothes, and it was so embarrassing to sit on board meetings in a black suite with white flakes. My entire attention was on my flakes, and worried what people were thinking when they looked at me, or got close to me at work…
Dr. Kormeili is the BEST!! I have a horrible phobia of needles and she calmed my nerves and had an extremely gentle touch. Painless office visit!
