Hemangiomas are classified into 2 major groups :
Port-Wine hemangiomas are tufts of extra blood vessels that commonly occur in the body.
Congenital hemangiomas are benign tumors that grow rapidly in the first year and regress spontaneously in the second to third year of life, but leave small or large residual lesions on the skin.
Their laser treatment is very effective and is done in childhood as early as possible, before the lesions develop and become very deformed.
They are benign skin lesions consisting of dilated choroidal capillaries with superficial epidermal hyperkeratosis.
They can be single or multiple and may be related to rare diseases. Their etiology is unknown, but they are often associated with trauma.
They are removed when they start to bleed or for aesthetic reasons. They are treated with laser and cryotherapy.
Pyogenic granuloma :
It is a rapidly growing red lump or nodule that usually occurs at the site of injury or insect bite.
With 1-2 sessions with the Long Pulse Nd YAG Laser the pyogenic granuloma disappears.
