Blood Spots are caused by small veins lying just beneath the outer layer of the skin. They are also known as Cherry Angiomas or Campbell de Morgans.
The bright red colour – as you might expect from the name – is the strongest identifying feature of a Blood Spot. Taking the form of dome-shaped blemishes, they can be anything from 2mm across to the size of a thumbnail.
Although Blood Spots can occur all over the body, including the face, you’ll most commonly encounter them around the middle of the body. They can affect both back and chest areas, becoming raised from the surface once they reach a larger size. These spots are very common but are mainly caused by age and can be hereditary, some skin types are very prone to them.
The treatment itself should take no more than 30 minutes if the area to be treated is quite small. You may experience some slight discomfort, often described as a slight ‘stinging’ by my clients. A single treatment is normally enough to remove an individual Blood Spot.
It’s quite possible that you’ll notice a little swelling immediately after Blood Spot Removal Treatment. The treated area may also appear redder than usual. All of this is normal and will go away within a day or two. During this time some scabs may form, but they will come away of their own accord, by which time the Blood Spot will have been reabsorbed. It may take a few weeks for the treated area to return to the same colouring as the surrounding skin.
Aftercare will be discussed during the consultation and after each treatment.
Disclaimer: Before each treatment, a medical questionnaire and consent form will need to be completed. I cannot guarantee the results of treatments. These will differ on an individual basis, with likely effectiveness to be discussed during the initial consultation. Permanence of results is not guaranteed.
