Cherry angioma removal in London
Cherry angioma removal is a commonly performed treatment at Centre for Surgery in London. Cherry angioma, also known as ‘Campbell de Morgan’ spots are a common type of vascular skin lesion. They are so named because of their distinctive red colour like a bright red mole which is caused by the proliferation of blood vessels inside them. Cherry angiomas are completely benign in nature and are not infectious. When multiple cherry angiomas develop, they can be a cause for concern due to their unsightly appearances. They can be flat or raised and are usually found on the back, arms and shoulders (although they can appear anywhere on the body). Cherry angiomas are very straightforward to remove and can be achieved in a single treatment session with laser for optimum cherry angioma removal by our dermatologists.

As with most facial vascular lesions, cherry angioma is very effectively treated in a single treatment session with the use of long pulse Nd:YAG laser. There is no downtime after cherry angioma removal and the risk of recurrence is minimal.
