FACTS ABOUT BIRTHMARKS

Birthmarks, port wine stains and freckles and other forms of pigmentation occur naturally. The most common birthmarks fall into two categories vascular marks and pigmented marks. Vascular marks include port wine stains, salmon patches and hemangiomas. These are made of blood vessels that have been damaged or didnt form correctly in the womb, causing a red discoloration of the skin. Pigmented marks include freckles, cafe au lait spots, mongolian spots, moles and melasma. These marks range from tan to very dark brown and are caused by an overproduction of pigment at birth or during puberty and hormonal shifts.

FEEL CONFIDENT IN YOUR SKIN.

For people who have birthmarks, flawless skin can seem like an impossible goal. Kwan Dermatology Center is here to help you get closer — whether we are able to dramatically fade a birthmark or eliminate it completely.

BIRTHMARK TIP: We recommend treating birthmarks as early as possible after they appear. This is because younger patients respond the best to laser and other treatment methods, often seeing the most fading. If a patient waits until they are older, birthmarks can be more challenging to diminish or remove because they grow and often become raised.

BIRTHMARK TREATMENT TECHNOLOGY

New advances in Laser and Pulsed Light technology have created an opportunity for patients to undergo life changing treatments without experiencing any downtime. At Kwan Dermatology Center, we offer the leading laser technology available on the market today. This allows us to treat birthmarks in the most effective ways available in the field of Cosmetic Dermatology. Some of the most effective vascular birthmark treatments are
lasers. This form of therapy involves aiming pulsed light at the birthmark to diminish the color, shrink it, or cause it to stop getting bigger. Treatments often work the best on younger patients because birthmarks may change and become raised with age. We recommend you schedule a consultation to determine the best treatment for your skin
