Red moles on the skin (cherry hemangiomas)

Red moles or as they are commonly called cherry or cherry hemangiomas are the most common form of hemangioma of the skin and consist of small blood vessels, the so-called capillaries. They are benign tumors and result from overgrowth of capillaries. The exact causes that lead to cherry hemangiomas are unknown, but there may be a genetic factor that makes some people more likely to develop them. They have also been linked to pregnancy, exposure to chemicals, certain diseases and the climate. Their treatment is simple and is done in our office with electrocautery or laser, with very good aesthetic results and without leaving scars or hyperpigmentation.

Mesopen is an alternative form of mesotherapy. It helps the penetration of active substances, creating portals of entry into the skin barrier with the creation of controlled micronulls, thanks to its specially designed head (pen with 12 tiny titanium pins), without obvious skin injury. Through this mechanism of action, the penetration capacity of the active substances increases.
