Hemangioma Treatment

Home Dermatology Hemangioma Treatment

Hemangiomas are abnormal skin growths caused by the collection of blood vessels in or under the skin. These abnormal growths generally occur during infancy or at the time of birth and are mostly benign. Typically, hemangiomas appear similar to strawberry marks, but they have different shapes, depending on the size and depth of blood vessels. Although these growths are non-cancerous, they are a cosmetic concern, especially if they are in a prominent location. Therefore, it is best to go for hemangiomas treatment in Dubai to eliminate these unsightly skin growths.

How do hemangiomas develop?

Hemangiomas are formed when there is the rapid growth of blood vessels at any part of the body. These skin growths commonly appear in babies as birthmarks or immediately after birth. Experts believe that this happens due to the production of protein in the placenta during gestation. Typically, they develop on the skin’s outermost layer or the layer underneath it, known as the subcutaneous layer. In some cases, hemangiomas can occur in the liver as well.

Aim of the Treatment

The primary aim of hemangiomas treatment in Dubai is to remove abnormal skin growth during a child’s infancy. It is better to get these birthmarks removed during infancy, with each session twenty-one days apart.

Treatment Techniques

There are several options available for hemangiomas treatment in Dubai. Usually, an expert uses a combination of two or more of these treatments for optimum results.

Some commonly used treatments are mentioned below:

  • Topical Medications

There are different topical creams and gels available over-the-counter for hemangiomas removal. Moreover, your doctor may also prescribe some topical gels and creams during a subsidiary treatment. Topical medications are typically suitable for smaller skin growths and may not always work.

  • Corticosteroid Medications

Corticosteroid medications are directly injected into the hemangiomas to reduce their growth and effect.

  • Laser Treatment

Laser treatment is considered the best option for treating hemangiomas. This treatment entirely erases the skin lesions or growths by breaking them with the help of laser beams. The procedure is straightforward and requires no anesthesia. However, the number of sessions depends on the size and depth of the hemangioma.

  • Surgery

If no non-invasive treatment suits your condition, you may need surgery to remove hemangiomas. Although surgery has quick results, it induces discomfort and pain. Moreover, it also has downtime and takes a few days to recover completely.
