What Are Birthmarks?

Birthmarks often appear in the form of colored areas that are unsightly, and many people wish to have them removed or reduced. They may vary in size and shape, and may be pigmented or vascular in origin.

Treatment Options

Light- and laser-based therapies are the most popular and effective, although chemical peels and dermabrasion may be useful for pigmented birthmarks.

How Do You Treat Birthmarks?

To treat birthmarks energy is applied to break up the pigment or vascular tissue for removal by the body’s natural processes, with minimal damage to surrounding healthy skin and tissue. This can be more or less difficult depending on factors such as the patient’s skin color and the size of the birthmark itself. Treatment of darker skinned patients is more challenging, but a good device used carefully by an expert can provide good results.

How Do Laser or Energy-based Treatments Work?

This depends on the type of birthmark you have. Basically, when the laser energy is applied to the skin, it targets the pigment in the birthmark and breaks it up. The body later removes the debris naturally, some pigment may remain requiring multiple treatments. Treatment of darker skinned patients can be more challenging, but a good device used carefully by an expert can provide good results.
