Angiomas usually appear on or near the surface of the skin anywhere on the body and can be considered annoying depending on their location.

What are angiomas ?
Spider angioma is characterized by a red lesion with a central arteriole from which radiate fine branches resembling the legs of a spider. They often occur on the face but also on the forearms, the back of the hands and the fingers. Spider angiomas are found on children as well as adults. Frequent among pregnant women, they often disappear after birth.
Cherry angioma, also known as the Campbell de Morgan spot, consists of a benign red vascular micro-papule measuring 1-2 mm in diameter. Appearing progressively after the age of ten, these angiomas are most often found on the trunk. They do not disappear on vitropression.
Port-wine stains (naevus flammeus or angioma simplex) are a vascular malformation caused by a dilation of blood vessels in the dermis. Appearing at birth, the lesion becomes larger as the child grows and lasts his whole life. Its size varies, as does its color, from pale pink to dark red or purple.
Spider and Cherry Angioma Laser Treatment
At the Centre Laser Sorbonne in Paris we principally use the Nd YAG laser - ELITE+ or MPX from Cynosure refresh by CRIOJET which is a reference.
Different lasers may be necessary in other cases, depending on the size and depth of the lesions.
If this is the case, the doctor will inform you during your consultation at the Centre.
