Are you seeing spots? Little red bumps on the chest, neck or back? Does it seem like they pop up overnight? If so, don’t worry! It’s likely that you are developing cherry hemangiomas – small, bumpy growths of blood vessels (or capillaries) in your skin.

In some cases, cherry hemangiomas are related to prolonged sun exposure. Most of the time, however, they are related to genetics and just one of those things that happens as we get older.

If you have either cherry hemangiomas or spider hemangiomas and you’d rather not, a hyfrecator (cauterization) can easily and effectively remove them! One word of advice though: it’s better to treat them sooner rather than later! In our experience, newer cherry hemangiomas respond better to laser treatment than older ones.
