Birthmarks

The Dermatology & Laser Center can treat red birthmarks (Port-wine Stains) and brown birthmarks (Café-au-lait spots and Nevus of Ota).

Purple/red port-wine stains are present at birth and will not disappear with age. If anything, they will thicken with time. Babies can develop a red, raised spot just after birth. This is called a hemangioma. These often resolve within a few years but laser will dramatically speed this process. The Dermatology & Laser Center uses both the Candela Vbeam Perfecta™ and the GentleMAX Pro™ for these treatments.

Brown birthmarks may be on the surface such as the café-au-lait spots or deeper in the skin such as a birthmark called Nevus of Ota. These conditions are either treated with the Candela GentleMAX Pro™ or the Quanta Q-Plus C™.
