Birthmark Removal

A birthmark is a slight darkening of the skin in a specific area of the body, usually permanent from birth. Though the majority of individuals have a birthmark and most go unnoticed some have birthmarks that are larger than they would like or in an obvious place and this can lead to a lack of confidence and psychological upset.

Birthmark Removal Treatment.

Birthmark removal works to remove or reduce the visibility of a birthmark usually through the use of appropriate lasers depending on the nature of the birthmark. Pigmented birthmarks require a laser specific to pigmentation while birthmarks such as port wine stains which are caused by a collection of abnormal blood vessels will require a laser specific to blood vessel removal.

  • What are birthmarks?

    Birthmarks are discolorations of the skin which create a dark patch. Birthmarks occur naturally and can be found on any area of the body.

    Common types of birthmarks are port wine stains and strawberry birthmarks and, though these differ in appearance, they can affect an individual’s self-esteem in the same way.

    With Laser and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) birthmark removal is possible. Birthmark removal treatment involves the use of lasers of the latest technology to pulsate streams of light onto the birthmark, lessening its darkness and appearance.
