I'm a 19-year-old male with no history of alcohol abuse or liver problems. In February 2016, I developed a red spot on my cheek overnight, for reasons unknown (although I did have extremely dry skin at the time which was caused by hairspray). I later figured out that it was a spider angioma. It has a central, raised spot that is redder than the rest of the site and, when it is blanched, the angioma refills from the centre. From reading online about it, I'm not sure how long I will have it for. Some websites say it will resolve spontaneously after a few years, but others say it is permanent. I'm quite conscious of it as it is fairly prominent, especially in the morning when it is redder, and have started using Eucerin Redness Relief to cover it. I'm looking in to getting laser treatment however I'm quite concerned about possible side effects, such as scarring, as well the risk of the angioma returning. I don't want to go through with laser treatment if the angioma will heal on its own in 6-12 months time.
Do you think it will heal up on its own, or is laser treatment my only choice? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
