Vascular Malformation Treatment
Vascular malformations or anomalies are lesions that contain a collection of dilated blood vessels. Some are present at birth, while others may form in childhood or even adulthood. Facial vascular malformations can impact facial function and appearance. At LM Medical NYC, we offer advanced methods of vascular malformation treatment at our state-of-the-art facility in Manhattan.
Vascular malformations and birthmarks come in many different forms. Port wine stains are a common vascular birthmark that can grow larger and darker with age, while hemangiomas usually fade away within the first few years after birth. There are other types of facial vascular malformations that are acquired later in life that can impact both health and facial aesthetics. The type of treatment depends on the age of the patient, variety of vascular malformation and the desired result of the patient.
