Hemangioma

Strawberry Hemangioma (Birth Mark) Treatment New York

Hemangiomas are benign growths that are present on the skin, made up of endothelial cells which are cells that line blood vessels. 30% of hemangiomas are present at birth.

Treatment

Most hemangiomas that are present from birth disappear without treatment, such as superficial or “strawberry” hemangiomas. Larger or deeper hemangiomas may require steroid injections or laser therapy to reduce the size of the vessels. Recent studies show that the beta-blocker propanolol may be effective in reducing severe hemangiomas in infants.
