Birthmark Removal

Laser treatments for birthmark reduction.

Thanks to the development of medical lasers the treatment of Birthmarks has become a routine procedure in medical laser clinics. With birthmarks falling into different categories, the type of laser used for the treatment used will be chosen based on the kind of birthmark.

About the condition

Birthmarks are hereditary but may not be immediately visible at birth. Birthmarks are broadly classified as being either Vascular where excess blood vessels form a network under the skin or Pigmented where excess pigment cells containing melanin are concentrated in an area of skin.

Birthmark: About The Condition

How it works

Medical grade lasers are used to treat birthmarks through a series of laser treatments where the laser light is concentrated to target either blood vessels in the case of Vascular Birthmarks (using Vascular Lasers) or melanocytes in the case of Pigmented Birthmarks (using Pigment Lasers).

Laser pulses are delivered to the site (it feels like the snap of a rubber band). An anaesthetic cream or spray can be used to prevent discomfort and protect the skin. The focused beams target the abnormal vessels or pigment, causing them to break up. The patient’s body will naturally remove the debris, fading the birthmark over the course of the treatment.


The treatments are quick and non-invasive, so you won’t have to take time off work for recovery. The skin around the birthmark will not be affected or damaged in any way.



No preparation is necessary, but if the birthmark is in a sun exposed area avoid excess sun exposure for at least 2 weeks before treatment.

Before any laser treatment of pigmented lesions, any possibility of skin cancer needs to be considered, and if necessary, a biopsy might be required.


It’s advisable to avoid sun exposure and to keep the area undergoing treatment protected with a high-factor sun protection cream. You will need to keep the skin well hydrated and drink plenty of water after a session.
