Cherry Angioma: Results from Michelle

A Cherry Angioma is also known as a blood spot or a Campbell de Morgan spot. They often have a red or purplish appearance due to being made up of a cluster of tiny blood vessels known as capillaries. 

Cherry Angioma growths can differ in size. Many people are unaware of how easily Cherry Angiomas can in fact be treated.

This image is the result of one of our skin expert Michelle’s treatment of this client, just 8 weeks post treatment. 

Background
This client had a noticeable red and purple raised Cherry Angioma on the bridge of her nose. Whilst Cherry Angiomas are in no way harmful and do not need to be removed, this client wanted to have hers removed for cosmetic reasons due to its prominent place.

Treatment
The client was treated using an Advanced Cosmetic Procedure (ACP) treatment, with advanced Electrolysis used to quickly and easily cauterise the cluster of blood vessels causing the cosmetic issue. This was after just one session of advanced Electrolysis.

Aftercare
We checked in with this client after 6 weeks to check that the area needed no further treatment, but as it is healing well, there is no more treatment needed except regular skincare routine upkeep and applying SPF.

If you think you may have a Cherry Angioma or any other skin condition, then book in a consultation with one of our skincare experts to find out more.

Why hot stone massages are up to ten times more effective than traditional massage…

Hot stone massage utilizes heated volcanic basalt stones to relax muscles deeply, enhance circulation, and improve digestion, offering significant benefits over traditional massages which rely only on manual manipulation. This technique is especially effective in relieving muscle pain, stress, arthritis, improving sleep, boosting immune function, and managing chronic conditions. By also aiding in detoxification and energizing the body, hot stone therapy promises a rejuvenative holistic well-being experience. Engaging in best practices before, during, and after sessions maximizes these benefits.

Why dermaplaning is a threat to your skin barrier and long-term skin health

Dermaplaning, while offering an immediate glow by removing dead skin cells and peach fuzz, also strips away healthy skin layers, compromising the skin's barrier function. This leads to increased sensitivity, dryness, and vulnerability to environmental damage such as UV rays. Long-term effects include heightened risk of sun damage, exacerbation of skin issues like acne, and premature aging. Home dermaplaning poses risks of infection and scarring. It is advised to consider safer, long-term skincare alternatives and, if still chosen, to opt for professional handling to mitigate risks. Prioritising skin health yields lasting benefits over superficial quick fixes.
