Angiofibroma (fibrous papules)

Fibrous Papules (Angiofibromas)

Fibrous Papules

Fibrous papules or angiofibroma’s are benign small skin-coloured, dome-shaped lesions. They are usually less than 5mm in size and composed of dermal fibrous tissue and blood vessels. 

Small capillaries may be visible on the surface of the lesion. 

They usually occur alone on the face and are called solitary angiofibroma or fibrous papule of the face.


Angiofibromas are associated with the genetic disorders. 

They are a result of overgrowth of dilated blood vessels, fibroblasts and collagen in a localised area. 

What triggers this is not well understood. 

However, with knowledge on administering treatments and undergoing the training provided by our excellent trainers, your angiofibroma will be effectively treated in the quickest and safest available way on the market.  

Treatment with CryoPen

During the treatment, a mild white frost should form evenly over the lesion. After the treatment, a small, white raised blister will appear on the entire lesion.

After thawing, the tissue turns red-ish coloured and has the aspect of a zone of inflammation due to interstitial bleeding. Angiofibromas typically disappear 14 days following treatment.

Be sure to speak to one of our experts if you have any questions on how this treatment works.
