What is a birthmark?
A birthmark is a mass of hyperpigmented skin cells that often develop on the skin before birth, hence the name. It can appear anywhere on the body, and may involve a variety of different types, including vascular or pigmented. Some of them will go away over time, while others may be present permanently. When patients are embarrassed about a birthmark that may be extremely noticeable, they may seek treatment by a dermatologist for removal.
Methods of removal
For many of our patients, we provide laser removal. This is done with a specialized light that breaks down the pigmented skin cells over several treatments to remove the birthmark. Patients need to understand that laser birthmark removal is not a “once and done” treatment, and that several sessions may be required to see permanent removal.

- Port wine stains
