Cherry Angioma / Blood Spots

Cherry Angioma or Blood Spots are common skin growths that can grow on any area of the body.


Cherry Angiomas are often referred to as Blood Spots and can appear on most areas of the body,they are more common in people over the age of 30. When looking at their appearance they are usually red, circular or ovular in shape and can be either raised on smooth against the skin. Blood Spots are usually harmless however if they change colour, shape, itch or bleed then it is recommended to schedule an appointment with your GP.

How can Aesthetics Of Liverpool help?

At Aesthetics of Liverpool we offer a number of treatments to safely remove Cherry Angiomas without harming the surrounding skin.


Cherry Angiomas can appear spontaneously though the exact cause of them is unknown. There have been links to pregnancy, climate, as well as exposure to chemicals. There is also research suggesting age also plays a factor, as those over the age of 30 seem to be affected by them more.

Cherry Angioma vary in appearance but can have the following characteristics:

• They can be extremely small and less than 5 millimeters or can grow larger.
• May appear as clusters of dilated capillaries on the surface of the skin or may appear alone.
• Red in colour.
• Can appear anywhere on the body.

Unfortunately there is no measure that can be taken to prevent Cherry Angiomas as they usually appear spontaneously however they are treatable.
Prior to any treatment we will invite you to the Aesthetic Of Liverpool clinic for a consultation where you will be able to discuss your concerns and what you are hoping to achieve from treatment. We will then be able to establish what treatment is best suited for you.
