Birthmark Treatments FAQ in Somerset, NJ

What is the most common birthmark?

Salmon patches (also called stork bites, angel kisses, or macular stains) are the most common type of birthmark.

Are birthmarks genetic?

Some birthmarks are hereditary and run in families, but most aren’t. Very occasionally, some are caused by gene mutations. For example, some babies born with a type of birthmark called port-wine stains (because they look similar to a splash of wine) may have a rare condition called Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome.

Can you shave a birthmark?

It is not recommended to shave or wax hairy birthmarks since it traumatises the birthmark, but the hair can be carefully trimmed with scissors.

What is slugging skin?

“Skin slugging is simply the application of an occlusive to act as a barrier to seal moisture into the skin. Dermatologists have been recommending for years as the last step in your skin care routine to treat dry skin, as we know that skin slugging helps prevent water loss,” says Cheung.

Should you remove birthmarks?

Reasons for Birthmark Removal Most birthmarks do not pose serious health risks or require treatment. Many fade with time and only require observation. However, parents of infants and children with birthmarks can have great concern, especially when the birthmark is very large or in a visible location.

Does IPL get rid of birthmarks?

IPL treatments close off the blood vessels forming the birthmark that eventually causes it to fade. They also work on flat pigmented birthmarks, but not on raised birthmarks.

When should I be worried about my birthmark?

Because port wine stains and certain hemangiomas can be disfiguring and embarrassing for children, Rozell-Shannon advises parents to consult with a vascular birthmarks specialist if their child’s birthmark has gotten larger or darker, or isn’t diminishing on its own.

What kind of birthmarks go away?

Most dermal melanocytosis birthmarks, which used to be called Mongolian spots, gradually fade. Many disappear by the toddler years. The majority of them are harmless and do not need treatment. In rare cases, these birthmarks may be associated with genetic conditions.

Where are birthmarks most common?

They are found most commonly on the torso, buttocks, and legs. Café-au-lait spots do not go away, may increase in number, and generally do not require treatment. A single café-au-lait spot is not a sign of a health problem.

Can Chemical peels remove 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.

Which cream can I use to remove dark spots?

Blue Nectar Natural Vitamin C Face Cream. Glowpink Dark Spot Corrector Cream. Re’ Equil Skin Radiance Cream. Eeza Anti Blemish Face Cream. Dermafique Age Defying Nuit Regenerating Cream. DERMATOUCH Skin Radiance Cream. AURAVEDIC Dark Spot Removal Cream. Mamaearth Skin Correct Face Serum.

Is laser birthmark removal painful?

The pain of the laser is similar to small flicks on the skin with a rubber band. Most adults can tolerate this, but children may find it more difficult and require some anaesthetic cream or mild sedation. See our fact sheet Sedation for procedures.
