Angioma Alexander Gorin

Angioma is one of the common dermatological conditions that can be addressed from a cosmetic point of view. In this article, we will discuss angiomas from a cosmetic perspective, including their characteristics, treatment methods, and skin care to help patients achieve their desired appearance.

What is angioma:

An angioma is a vascular tumor, usually consisting of dilated capillaries or other blood vessels. It can vary in shape and size, from flat red spots to protruding nodules. Angiomas can exist in different types, including red angiomas (capillary angiomas), cellular angiomas and multiple angiomas.

Cosmetic evaluation of angiomas:

  1. Colour and texture: Cosmetologists evaluate the color and texture of angiomas to see how it affects the overall appearance of the skin.
  2. Size and location: The location and size of angiomas can influence decisions about treatment and removal methods.

Methods of treatment of angiomas in cosmetology:

  1. Laser treatment: Laser removal of angiomas can be an effective method, especially for red capillary angiomas. The laser beam specifically destroys the blood vessels inside the angioma without damaging the surrounding tissue.
  2. Electrocoagulation: This method uses a high-frequency electric current to close the blood vessels inside the angioma.
  3. Sclerotherapy: In this procedure, a special substance is injected into the angioma, which causes the blood vessels to close and the tumour to shrink.

Skin care after angioma removal:

After removal of angiomas, cosmetologists usually recommend:

  • Avoid sunlight: Protect the affected area from sunlight to prevent hyperpigmentation.
  • Use gentle care: Use gentle cleansers and moisturizers to care for your skin after the procedure.
  • Oversee the healing process: Watch how the site heals and follow the recommendations of the specialist.


Angiomas can be not only a medical but also a cosmetic problem. With the help of modern methods of treatment and removal, cosmetologists can help patients achieve the desired look and confidence. However, it is important to consult with a qualified professional to choose the best approach to treatment and skin care.
