Hemangiomas Treatment in Dubai

Hemangiomas are benign vascular tumors primarily seen in infants. This usually happens when a mother is pregnant and abnormal blood vessels group together in the placenta during gestation. These can be found on the skin or internal organs. Hemangiomas are often described as strawberry-like marks due to their red appearance and raised surface, but they can vary in appearance. However, it is now possible to get rid of these marks with laser treatment for hemangiomas in Dubai.

What are Hemangiomas?

Hemangiomas are benign tumors that vary in size and color, and can occur both on the skin or internally. They are most commonly found on the head, neck, and sometimes the trunk. In the first weeks of a baby’s life, it’s advisable to monitor for any skin changes, including red marks, which could be indicative of a hemangioma. After that, plan the best treatment as soon as possible.

Signs & Symptoms

While most hemangiomas are asymptomatic, some may cause symptoms if they are large or in critical areas. Common symptoms include:

  • Nausea.
  • Vomiting.
  • Discomfort and pain in the abdomen (in cases of internal hemangiomas).
  • Loss of appetite.
  • Weight loss.
  • Feeling of fullness in the abdomen.

Hemangiomas Causes

The exact cause of hemangiomas is not fully understood, though they may involve an overgrowth of blood vessels and possibly a genetic component.

Preparation For The Treatment

To prepare for hemangioma treatment, it’s important to discuss:

  • Your medical history and any allergies with your doctor
  • Understand the procedure
  • Follow any specific pre-treatment instructions, such as avoiding certain medications.

Hemangiomas Procedure

Laser treatment for hemangiomas is generally safe but can have side effects such as temporary skin discoloration, discomfort, or scarring, depending on individual cases. It takes several minutes depending on the size of the lesion. The steps for the procedure are:

  • Local anesthesia or numbing cream is applied to the skin, to avoid potential discomfort and pain. The treatment may be performed without numbing the area depending on the patient’s age, location, and size of the lesion.
  • The laser beam is then introduced to the surface of the skin.
  • The laser treatment involves penetrating the skin with light energy, which is absorbed and converted into heat, helping to reduce or eliminate the hemangioma.
  • The laser also reduces inflammation and promotes the natural healing process.
  • The cooling device is used to minimize the potential discomfort and heating sensation caused by the laser.

Post Treatment Care

Below mentioned are some aftercare tips that are helpful in reducing any possible side effects or discomfort that are associated with the Hemangiomas treatment.

  • Applying cold compresses to minimize discomfort and swelling.
  • It’s also crucial to protect the treated area from sun exposure to prevent skin damage and aid healing.


After the treatment, the lesions may lighten or darken but fade over time. You will feel a stinging sensation immediately after the treatment. After treatment, redness, mild swelling, and bruising are common and usually resolve within a few days, but patients should follow post-treatment care instructions for optimal recovery.

Treatment Benefits

There are many benefits of laser treatment for hemangiomas, which include:

  • It is considered safe, effective, and minimally invasive.
  • It does not involve any cuts and incisions and is virtually painless.
  • Severe complications are rare.
  • Requires no downtime and has minimal recovery time.


Good results are often seen with hemangioma treatment, but outcomes can vary. Selecting an experienced surgeon is important to minimize risks and maximize effectiveness. Hemangiomas laser treatment requires multiple sessions for optimal results, and the complete removal of the lesion may require a few months. The outcomes of hemangioma laser treatment are generally positive, but results can vary and may not always be permanent.
