Cherry angiomas Ramsgate occur when the cells that form blood vessels in the skin, known as endothelial cells, begin to grow at an accelerated rate.
This abnormal cell growth leads to a cluster of these cells referred to as a cherry angioma.
The exact cause of this rapid cell growth is unclear, but some studies suggest a link between hormone levels and cherry angioma.
Cherry angiomas can be removed with cryopen by targeting the lesion with a tiny, precise jet of liquid nitrogen at a temperature of -89°C.
This freezes the area, allowing the cherry angioma to be shaved off easily and comfortably without damaging the surrounding skin tissue.
2. It has a low risk of infection or side effects compared with other methods, such as surgery or laser treatments.
3. The treatment is relatively painless and does not require any anaesthesia or downtime afterwards.
4. It gives immediate results and can be done in the doctor’s office in a matter of minutes.
5. When using Cryopen, there is no need for suturing afterwards.
6. The cost of treatment is usually much lower than with other methods of removal such as surgery or laser therapy.
Cherry angioma removal with cryopen is a procedure that uses extreme cold temperatures from a specialized device called a cryopen to freeze and remove cherry angiomas, also known as cherry spots. Cherry angiomas are small, red or purple spots found on the surface of the skin and caused by an overgrowth of capillaries. The cryopen produces cryogenic temperatures that cool the cherry angioma down enough to cause it to crystallize and then fall off.
No, cherry angioma removal with cryopen is not painful. The procedure involves using a liquid nitrogen spray to freeze the affected area and break down the small blood vessels that make up the cherry angioma, which generally takes only a few seconds. There may be slight discomfort during the procedure due to the cold sensation of the spray but it is generally not painful.
The side effects of cryopen treatments can vary depending on the area being treated and the individual. Side effects include redness, swelling, itching, and blistering at the treatment site. In some cases, there may also be light bleeding or bruising.
The recovery time after cherry angioma removal with cryopen is typically very short, usually between a few hours and 24 hours.
Cryopen is FDA approved.
There may be some minor swelling and soreness around the treated area, but most patients can resume their normal activities immediately after treatment.
The results of cherry angioma removal with cryopen are typically excellent. The procedure is generally successful in removing the angiomas, and there are usually very few side effects or complications. It is important to note that while it can remove the majority of the angioma, some of the surrounding tissue may be affected as well. Therefore, some scarring may occur after treatment. Additionally, since cryopen is a freezing technique, there may also be some temporary numbness in the affected area.
The cost of cherry angioma removal with cryopen will vary depending on the individual procedure. However, it usually ranges between £100-£200.
The number of treatments you will need to complete depends on your individual condition and the severity of your symptoms. Your clinician will be able to provide more information about the specific treatment plan that is best for you.
