Type of Study:

Interventional

Study Design:

Allocation: Randomized, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Single Blind (Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Treatment

Outcome Measure:

Mean Changes in Color, Texture, and Size of Cherry Angiomata From Baseline to 3 Months After the Second Treatment by Treatment Type as Assessed by Blinded Raters

Outcome Description:

Each subject received all 3 treatments. Serial standardized photographs evaluated for color,texture and size by 2 blinded dermatologists using ordinal visual analog scales from 0 to 10(color: 0=skin colored, 5=red, 10=purple; texture: 0=flat, 5=mildly elevated, 10=elevated; size: 0=0mm, 10=10 mm).

Outcome Time Frame:
