Hemangiomas are growths which form on the skin. They are non-cancerous and develop into what look like birthmarks. A hemangioma can form in both the lower layers of skin and the top layer of skin (epidermis). Unless the hemangioma is large, there is rarely any need for treatment. However, in some cases, even small hemangioma require treatment if they are growing in an area of the skin which causes sensitivity to become an issue. It is still important to have any growths checked to rule out skin cancer or other type of more serious medical conditions.

Hemangioma Causes & Symptoms

Hemangiomas are caused by blood vessels forming together into a lump. Although there is no consensus on the cause of hemangiomas, experts agree that they are likely caused by proteins which are present during gestation. These proteins have been observed in the placenta of pregnant women and there appears to be a causal link with babies who have been confirmed as having developed hemangiomas. The symptoms of hemangiomas are red abrasions which may grow and turn a deeper, strawberry red. Strawberry hemangiomas are most common on the neck and face, which is also the most likely reason that people will seek treatment.

Hemangioma Treatment

Both medical and surgical treatment options are available for hemangioma. Smaller hemangioma will likely go away on their own and won’t require any form of treatment. However, if the hemangiomas are in sensitive areas or sores form, you can seek treatment to have them removed. Corticosteroid medication and medical gels are the main two options which don’t require surgery. Laser treatment is also effective if there are no additional complications involved. In severe cases surgical intervention may be the best option. Kayal Dermatology offer both options and help you decide which course of treatment is best for you.

First time ever at a dermatology office! So I was a little nervous... But they have a very friendly staff and it was nice meeting PA Joel! Felt comfortable and he was informative & made me feel like I wasn’t the only person dealing with my issue. I can’t wait to see some results and get some relief!!

Detlef K.

I’ve been going here awhile. I’ve got a few pesky issues, some due to my not allowing areas to completely heal, sins that prolongs my already glacier like speed healing! I really appreciate Dr. Kayal and Joel who combine to take of me and my family.

Michael V.

Was greeted upon my arrival, very nice waiting room, was taken back immediately. Very professional, caring and friendly staff. They want to help you. The PA Joel was very knowledgeable and knew exactly how to help me. I was given a prescription to address the problem. Will be back with other issues, keep up the good work.
