Venous lake on my lip

I have this dark blue/purple lesion on my lip that keeps getting bigger. I went to see the dermatologist and she said that it's a venous lake. She said it was nothing I had to worry about. Does anyone else have one or know of someone who does? If so, what was your/their treatment?

Great results!!
Mine still has the crust which is very dark, I will post up some pics when and HOPEFULLY it's gone for good. Thanks for sharing the pics :D

I hope the crust is going to fall off soon for you. Once that happens, it will go very fast.
I'm looking forward to see some pics to see how the laser treatment worked out. No problem at all.

Hi Tom, how is your lip now? I had laser treatment on my large VL last Thursday, have a huge crusty scab where it was can't wait until that goes and HOPEFULLY the darn thing is gone...

Well here I am three weeks after the procedure, very pleased with the results. The doctor used a Candela Vbeam laser.

Is there a way of uploading pics on this site? if anyone can help?

Hopefully you'll all be able to see my lip pics here, 1st pic is venous lake before treatment, 2nd is after laser and third is nearly gone, hopefully will be able to post a fourth where you can't see it at all!

I think you mean the last pic is the venous lake. That is one big one! I hope that spot will be gone as fast as possible. Hopefully you won't need another treatment. Keep us posted if you don't mind :)

Yeah the last pic was the venous lake before treatment. There's only a tiny mark there now, pretty much like the first pic I posted, will take another pic of it now. VERY happy with the results, I'm not going to say it didn't hurt because it did, but was well worth it.

Wonderful results for you! Thanks for posting so others can see the results of laser removal. I opted for plastic surgery and I'll try to post similar before and after pics to compare techniques.
