Haemangiomas are red and bumpy patches on the skin, more common in young children. They can be present on different parts of the body including the lip, nose, neck or back. Their size varies from a few millimeters to a few centimeters. Most tend to disappear as the infant develops, but in some cases, they can be permanent. Although they are often harmless, the area tends to be more sensitive to scratching and bleeding. An easy option for treating this skin condition is the haemagioma removal laser treatment in Solihull provided by Renew Skin & Health Clinic.
Haemangioma is a harmless skin tumor characterised by an abnormally dense collection of blood vessels. Due to its appearance, it is popularly known under different names such as “strawberry marks”. Being aggregations of blood vessels, haemangiomas are red in colour and have a bumpy appearance, being more or less obvious depending on how deep they are found. Haemangiomas occur and grow early in life, usually during the baby’s first year. Afterwards, they tend to regress, 90% of them disappearing by the age of 10. The causes of are not yet fully known to the medical community.
Due to the sensitivity of the areas affected, complications may arise which can lead to infections or ulcers. Haemangiomas on the lips or in the genital areas may also make normal bodily processes uncomfortable. That being the case, for most people with haemangiomas, the issue is purely cosmetic. For these reasons, patients may seek an easy and painless treatment option.
