The cause of a venous lake is unknown, but if you have one on your lip you just want it gone! It is a soft macule or papule, usually blue or purple in color, and it often appears on the lip. It is a harmless growth and does not require treatment.
It can be destroyed in a number of ways, but I chose a vascular laser: the Excel V. My patient has an excellent result. The “after” photo is a little more than two weeks after treatment.
My patient granted Dermatology Boutique permission to post her photos on Dr. Golomb’s social media and patient communications. I am grateful that she allowed me to share her photos to help others.
