Depending on the thickness of the cherryvangioma any laser with vascular capabilities- pulse dye 585 wavelength, ktpbat 532. Alexandrite at 755. . The pulse dye or kip work well. Electrosurgery done well gives a very good to excellent result. Unless there are special circumstances surgery will leave a scar and is best avoided.
