Birthmark Treatments FAQ in Nashville, TN

What do cancerous birthmarks look like?

One part of a mole or birthmark doesn’t match the other. The edges are irregular, ragged, notched, or blurred. The color is not the same all over and may include shades of brown or black, sometimes with patches of pink, red, white, or blue.

What is a brown birthmark called?

Congenital melanocytic nevi (CMN) are “moles” that are present at birth. They range in color from light brown to black and come in all shapes and sizes. Over time, CMN may darken, thicken or grow hair. One percent of babies are born with a CMN, but so-called “giant” CMN are much less common (1 in 50,000).

How can I fade my birthmark naturally?

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.

How many treatments does it take to remove a birthmark?

In our experience, the best results occur when a series of treatments, usually between four and six, take place over two or three years. The length of each treatment session varies according to whether your child has treatment under general anaesthetic or local anaesthetic and the characteristics of their birthmark.

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 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.

Why do people get birthmarks?

Birthmarks generally result from an overgrowth of a structure that is normally present in the skin. For example, an overgrowth of blood vessels produces vascular birthmarks or haemangiomas; an overgrowth of pigment cells produces congenital naevi or moles.

Are birthmarks a disability?

Although there is no further explanation on what qualifies as a “severe disfigurement”, large birthmarks are widely considered to fall into this definition, especially if they are located in a visible area.

Are brown birthmarks permanent?

Most birthmarks are permanent, but a few types fade as a child grows. Birthmarks are common and usually harmless. But some may require treatment for cosmetic reasons or because of rapid growth. Still others may be a sign of an underlying disease.

What do birthmarks mean medically?

Birthmarks are areas of discolored and/or raised skin that are apparent at birth or within a few weeks of birth. Birthmarks are made up of malformed pigment cells or blood vessels. Although the cause of birthmarks is not known, most of them are benign (noncancerous) and do not require treatment.

What kind of birthmarks are rare?

Venous Malformations These birthmarks are very rare. A vascular malformation is a tangle of blood vessels that are usually bigger and more protruding than other blood vessel birthmarks. Venous malformations do not fade away over time and often need to be treated.

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.

Can Vaseline grow eyelashes?

Vaseline is an occlusive moisturizer that can be used effectively on dry skin and eyelashes. It can’t make eyelashes grow faster or longer, but it can moisturize them, making them look fuller and lusher.
