Cherry Hemangiomas - Cherry hemangiomas appear as small red dots that may be as small as 1 mm to 1 cm in size. They can vary in color from bright red to purple or even blue and may be flat or raised. They can appear on any area of the body but are more common on the face, neck, and truck. They tend to be more common in men than women and often start in our thirties and increase in number as we age.
Facial Veins - Facial Veins tend to occur more as we age and generally start to be visible around age 40 but we do see them in much younger patients. The exact cause of facial veins developing are not completely understood. We do know that there are some associated factors to include: sun exposure, genetics, natural aging, and some medical conditions such as hypertension and rosacea.
