Birthmarks are simply a discolouration of the skin that can have a variety of causes including an unusual grouping of blood vessels or a localised excess of the pigmentation that gives skin its colour. Laser treatment can be suitable for all of these types of birthmark though some may require longer courses of treatment than others.
We can treat both port wine stains by removing the redness using our ND:Yag laser therefore reducing its appearance over a course of treatment.
Nd:Yag laser is particularly useful in for the treatment of deeper or larger vessels with fewer risks of epidermal pigment changes.
