Haemangioma Treatment

A haemangioma is a benign, flat or raised collection of blood vessels that responds very well to the Cutera Nd: YAG laser, a technological laser treatment used by Dr Omarjee and his team of therapists. Haemangiomas are also known as Campbell de Morgan spots and can be found on various body locations. While they have no medical consequences, patients often choose to undergo hemangoima laser treatment for cosmetic purposes.

What Can I Expect During The Procedure?

There are several options for treating haemangiomas on the body. You might opt for hemangioma laser treatment or choose other surgical procedures that can be performed by a cosmetic physician. At The DOC Clinic, Dr Omarjee can effectively provide haemangioma laser treatment using the Cutera Nd: YAG Laser. The Nd: YAG laser can fire 1064nm of energy to treat lesions and spots. This is a popular and highly effective hemangioma treatment, exercised through a laser hand piece which Dr Omarjee specifically uses to treat these issues. The Cutera Nd: YAG Laser works by using modern laser technology, with patients experiencing mild discomfort.

While surgery is one of the most effective options for treating lesions and spots, cosmetic physicians like Dr Omarjee also encourage a healthy lifestyle in order to prevent these issues.

  • Use sunscreen – This allows you to cover affected areas to ensure you don’t sustain any further damage through sun exposure.
  • Educate yourself on your family history – It is important that every patient is aware of his or her family history and if they may be more prone to haemangiomas, they are able to discuss suitable options for prevention and treatment with Dr Omarjee.
  • Eat healthy – It is vital to introduce more fibre, fruits and vegetables to your diet to help reduce constipation and improve circulation throughout the body. This, in turn, allows your blood to flow effectively.

How Many Treatments Are Required?

Depending on the severity of the spots or lesions, multiple hemangioma laser treatments may be recommended by your cosmetic physician. Some lesions disappear after just one treatment, while others require several treatments. Dr Omarjee will assess the spot prior to treatment and provide you with information regarding the number of treatments needed.

Is The Treatment Painful?

Although laser therapy destroys tissue by heat, patients do not feel burning sensations. With each pulse being less than a thousandth of a second, mild discomfort may occur.

How Successful Is This Procedure?

When undergoing any laser or surgical procedure, it is important that you have realistic expectations. At The DOC Clinic, Dr Omarjee and his team of professional laser therapists will be able to discuss preventative measures that will help reduce further damage as well as explain how to maintain healthy skin post-treatment.

It is recommended that following your hemangioma laser treatment, a very good sunscreen of SPF50 is worn daily, as your skin will be highly sensitive to the effects of the sun, which may have drastic consequences for your skin if the correct care is not taken. Following your procedure, your cosmetic physician may also discuss a medical-grade skincare routine consisting of vitamin A, vitamin B and vitamin C to assist with maintaining your refreshed look.

How Much Does It Cost?

The consultation fee for a potential lesion/spot treatment is $120 (Medicare Rebates may be available). Depending on your preferred hemangioma treatment methods, the number of areas you need treated, and the size, the cost of treatment can vary. However, a Medicare rebate is available for face and neck laser treatments performed by a cosmetic physician (vascular lesions only). Dr Omarjee and his team of therapists are available to discuss all pricing and options with you during your first consultation.

In regard to hemangioma laser treatment cost, Dr Omarjee is available to discuss more with you during your first consultation.
