Birthmark Removal

Birthmarks are certain marks or protrusions on the skin that are present at birth, or take form shortly after it. There are two basic types of birthmarks observed in people: pigmented and red birthmarks. Pigmented marks are characterized by brown or bluish skin pigments. Red birthmarks are related to blood vessels and may result in growth on skin.

Laser treatment is the preferred choice when it comes to birthmark removal. It is short and effective and doesn't leave marks on a person's skin. Corticosteroids can also be injected orally for effectively decreasing and removing the marks. The process usually takes about 2-4 weeks. Surgery is another option, but is used only in the most severe cases, where the marks are hampering daily life of the patient.
