Most haemangiomas do not require treatment.

Factors that may determine if a haemangioma requires treatment include the size, site (eg. eyelids, nose, lips) and potential for complications (eg. ulceration).

Treatment options for haemangiomas include:
  • Topicals (eg. timolol gel/ drops, steroid creams)
  • Injections (eg. intralesional kenacort)
  • Oral medications (eg. propranolol, oral steroids)
  • Lasers (eg. pulsed dye laser)
  • Surgery
