There has been a lot of progress in recent years in relation to the success of laser birthmark removal. If you have a birthmark that you would like removed, there are a lot of good options now available to you. With the technological advancements provided by the Gemini® and RevLite® laser systems, the removal of birthmarks such as port wine stains and other marks that are caused by pigmentation is now possible. The staff at Perfect Skin Center is here to answer all of your questions and meet with you to discuss the necessary course of treatment for successful laser birthmark removal.
Effective Laser Birthmark Removal is Possible
Because port wine stains are caused by vascular irregularities, the treatment of them with the Gemini® laser is quite effective. The laser heats the affected area to cause the blood vessels to shrink and then to ultimately disappear, which diminishes the appearance of the stain. The treatment generally calls for multiple sessions, the exact number of which will vary from person to person.
Pigmented birthmark removal is also possible through the same type of treatment with a different tool, the RevLite® laser. This system utilizes a wavelength that penetrates deep into the skin with pinpoint precision to eradicate the pigmentation below the skin’s surface and minimize the appearance of the mark.
