Birthmark Treatments FAQ in Aliso Viejo, CA

How long does it take to remove a birthmark with laser?

Birthmark removal treatment can take as little as 10 minutes, and the procedure can be carried out safely by a qualified doctor using a special type of laser.

Can you lighten a birthmark?

Laser treatment uses highly focused beams of light to reduce the size and lessen the color of birthmarks. This includes red birthmarks, such as strawberry hemangiomas and port wine stains; brown birthmarks, such as café au lait spots; and blue birthmarks, such as facial dermal melanocytosis.

How can I flatten my birthmark?

Shaving or surgery physically removes the birthmark, whereas lasers shrink blood vessels to make vascular birthmarks less visible. Medication is also used to shrink certain birthmarks, like some hemangiomas.

Should birthmarks be removed?

Many birthmarks do not require surgical intervention and either shrink and fade on their own or respond well to medication or laser therapy. However, our dermatologists may recommend surgery for some types of birthmarks.

Can dermatologist help with birthmark?

Your dermatologist will tell you what to look for. This allows you to treat the birthmark only if treatment becomes necessary. This can be an effective approach for a strawberry hemangioma, a type of birthmark that can grow quickly.

Can chemical peels get rid of birthmarks?

Chemical Peel: A chemical peel uses a medical-grade chemical solution to remove the top layer of skin over the birthmark. As your body replaces the birthmark skin with new cells, the texture evens out.

How can I remove birthmarks naturally?

Natural birthmark removal methods Dab a few drops of lemon juice on the birthmark, leave it for at least 20 minutes, wash it off with warm water and then dry your skin off with a clean towel. Repeat this process at least three times a day until the birthmark has faded.

Can I laser my birthmark?

Laser is used to treat skin birthmarks, such as brown/black spots and vascular lesions (pink or red marks caused by abnormal blood vessels). Vascular lesions include port wine stains and haemangiomas (strawberry naevus).

Can lasers be used to remove birthmarks and tattoos?

How does Laser work to remove Tattoo/birthmarks? Laser beams penetrate skin upto the level of tattooed ink/pigmented birth mark and break it down into small particles. These fragmented particles are slowly cleared from that site by body’s own defense cells and eventually tattoo is cleared in 6 to 8 sittings.

Do birthmarks come back after removal?

Keep in mind that laser treatments may not get rid of the birthmark entirely (though some birthmarks disappear completely after treatment). Plus, over time the birthmark may come back and need to be retreated.

Can Microneedling remove birthmarks?
