WHAT ARE BLOOD BLISTERS?

Blood blisters are small red blisters on the skin that are not dangerous. These types of blisters are bright red and lie on your skin like a hemisphere. They grow from 1 to 6 millimeters in size and can occur anywhere on the body. It is also called senile hemangioma and is in fact a benign vasodilation. Read more about this condition, how it occurs and what you can do about it below.

 

Blood blisters are most common on the face, neck, abdomen, back, and chest. They can also appear on other parts of the body. Both men and women suffer from it. They seem to be more common on light skin, although they are more noticeable there than on pigmented skin. 

 

How a blood vesicle forms is unknown. We do know that they often occur later in life. Yet you can already suffer from it from the age of 25. They are very small at first, but they can grow in size and number. They don't do any harm, but they can of course disturb you. 

HOW ARE BLOOD BLOWERS REMOVED?

At The Hague Clinic we remove blood blisters by means of Coagulation. Coagulation is a safe and effective way to remove blood blisters. Spots are touched very precisely without damaging the healthy, surrounding skin.

 

Coagulation therapy is performed with the 'spot remover'. A subtle device with a pointed electrode. In this point, an electrical heat (safe low voltage) develops and with that blood blisters are touched. With a very fine needle, we apply heat to the skin during coagulation therapy. We heat the vesicles locally and very precisely. You hardly feel this; you only feel pinpricks. Due to the heating, the proteins in the skin coagulate and scabs form on the spots of the blood blisters. These scabs fall off the skin after an average of a week. Below this, a new, beautiful skin is created.

Coagulation treatment of blood blisters is safe, fast and very effective.

 

A treatment with the spot remover is very targeted and safe. Blood vesicles are touched with great precision while the healthy, surrounding skin is left alone. The treatment is effective, so that most spots have disappeared immediately after the first treatment! 

HOW WILL MY SKIN LOOK AFTER THE TREATMENT?

  • After the treatment, the treated skin may still be red for a few hours.

  • Scabs may also form. These disappear on average within a few days to two weeks.

  • During this period you should be careful about putting on and taking off clothes and drying the skin.

  • Try not to scratch the scabs either. The skin will then heal without scarring.

AFTERCARE INSTRUCTIONS

  • Keep the wounds dry and clean for at least 5 days after the procedure.

  • Avoid the sun for 10-28 days (sun holidays and winter sports).

  • Protect your skin well with at least SPF 30, in sun and rain.

  • It is very important that you do not scratch the skin during the process.

  • Avoid sauna, hot baths and sweating (sports) for 48 hours after the treatment.
