Haemangiomas, or strawberry marks are common skin birthmarks. They are red and bumpy since they are comprised of a high number of closely situated blood vessels. Some may worry that such patches are cancerous or dangerous; however, this is not the case. Haemangiomas are harmless and benign, generally more of a cosmetic issue, although the area does tend to be more prone to bleeding when the skin is hurt. If you wish to address this common skin condition, consider the haemangioma removal laser treatment in Oxford.
The size and location, as well as intensity of haemangiomas vary. They can be found on any part of the body but more commonly on the neck or head, especially the lips. Haemangiomas situated at the skin surface are bright red or scarlet in colour while those deeper are pale blue. The growth of haemangiomas occurs during the first year of the infant’s life, followed by a regression period that can last for years. By age 10, 90% of haemagiomas disappear leaving behind clear skin or small bumpy scars in cases where the lesion was extensive. Some, however, can remain, or incompletely regress.
When haemangiomas are situated on the face or lips and do not completely disappear there may be negative psychological effects on the child. When interacting with friends or schoolmates, the patch can become a subject of ridicule affecting the child’s self-trust and self-image. There is also a slightly increased risk of infection and ulcer formation on the area affected. Lip haemangioma can cause discomfort when eating. For these reasons, you may wish to try the lip haemangioma removal laser treatment in Oxford. The cause of haemangiomas and the mechanism behind their development is not yet fully known, we can, however, treat it here at Renew Skin & Health Clinic.
Renew Skin & Health clinic offers the modern Pulse Dye laser treatment for haemangiomas. This technique uses an organic dye mixed in a solvent. The laser passes through the mix and into the skin. The heat from the laser concentrates in the affected blood vessel tissue, degrading them from within, while the healthy tissue is left unharmed. This is possible due to the selective thermolysis principle. Non-surgical and minimally scarring, the Pulse Dye Laser treatment is ideal for dermatological issues, especially the ones affecting blood vessels, such as lip haemangiomas. No hospitalization is required and for your complete comfort, a local anesthetic cream can be administered.
