Pain-free Laser Treatment for Birthmark Removal
Birthmarks are benign spots or growths present on the skin at or shortly after birth. They come in many shapes, sizes, and colors ranging from tan and pink to brown and dark red. Although birthmarks are usually harmless, individuals with marks on the face or other visible areas often feel self-conscious about their appearance. At Total Body Laser & Med Spa, we offer safe, pain-free laser treatment for birthmark removal.
While many myths exist about birthmarks, science isn’t sure exactly why these markings occur. Some birthmarks are categorized as vascular, which means they involve the blood vessels under the skin. Pigmented birthmarks are caused by deposits of excess melanin, the substance that gives skin its color. In most cases, birthmarks do not require medical treatment and often disappear during childhood.

Total Body Laser & Med Spa offers effective laser removal of both vascular and pigmented birthmarks. For pigmented birthmarks, the laser penetrates the skin and changes the molecular structure of the melanin. This new substance is no longer recognized by the body, which triggers the immune system to break it down and removes it from the body. The laser can precisely target the affected area, reducing discomfort by treating only the discolored skin.
For vascular birthmarks, the laser targets the hemoglobin within the blood vessels that make up the blemish. This causes the abnormal capillaries to collapse, reducing the size and appearance of the birthmark. Often, the vascular birthmark will turn dark brown before disappearing.
With laser treatments, both vascular and pigmented birthmarks will fade in about 3 to 4 weeks, although up to seven laser treatments may be required depending on the size and color of the growth.
