Birthmarks – Port Wine Stains and Pigmented Birthmarks
Port Wine Stains and Vascular Lesions
The Gemini laser makes the difference. Red ( vascular) birthmarks are made up of lots of tiny blood vessels such as Port Wine Stains. These vary greatly in size and occur on different parts of the body with facial birthmarks causing the most concern to patients. The Gemini laser has improved the treatment of these birthmarks. Vascular birthmarks are effectively treated with the Gemini Laser System. The laser passes light through the skin where the light is absorbed by the red vessels heating them up. The heat causes the vessels to shrink and disappear and the birthmark to fade. Multiple treatments may be required. The skin is protected by us of a special chilled tip attached to the handpiece as well as the prior application of a gel to the skin. During treatment a stinging sensation is felt, but this can be lessened with the use of an anesthetic cream if necessary. After treatment the skin is generally blotchy and some areas of redness and swelling may be noted.
Dermal Pigmented Nevus of Ota and Other Forms of Deeper Dermal Pigmentation. The deep-penetrating 1064 nm wavelength of the RevLite® laser provides an effective treatment for nevi. The RevLite™ features PhotoAcoustic Technology Pulse™ (PTP), harnessing up to 60 percent more power to deliver peak energy in very narrow pulse widths even at larger spot sizes, while maintaining patient comfort. At Perfect Skin Laser Center we use have both the Gemini and RevLite Aesthetic lasers for birthmark removal. These lasers have been specially designed to treat birthmarks and other vascular lesions. If you, a family member, or a friend is suffering from the embarrassment of a birthmark and may benefit from Gemini and Revlite laser treatments, give us a call or send us a message.
