Hemangiomas Treatments in Wellesley, MA:

Though the word hemangioma sounds scary, it is actually just a benign (noncancerous) cluster of blood vessels located anywhere on the body. Though they can occur at any age, they are most common with infants and young children. For most, they will grow for a short period of time and then stop growing or even shrink, even without treatment. However, it is important for you to visit a dermatologist because external hemangiomas often occur alongside internal ones that can be found on the liver, the brain, the respiratory organs, or even the various parts of the gastrointestinal system.

For the most part, a single and small external hemangioma should be closely monitored by a dermatologist, but it will often require no treatment and will go away on its own. In some cases, beta-blockers, corticosteroids, or even laser treatment may be used to shrink the hemangioma. This is often the case when they result in sores or ulcers and pose a risk of infection. Schedule a consultation with a dermatologist at Premier Dermatology today to learn more about the treatment options for your child’s hemangioma.

I have been going to Dr. Lunder for 15 years+. She is a wonderful dermatologist. She watches for precancerous spots and takes great care of my skin. She is always willing to discuss cosmetic treatments but never pushes anything. Her assistant Sue is also knowledgeable and comforting. Her office Premier Dermatology has a very welcome staff. I highly recommend Dr. Lunder and this office.
