Laser Birthmark Removal

Pigmented birthmarks are darker colored skin spots that are either present at birth or develop shortly after birth. They come in many different colors, including brown, tan or black. Topical products is usually of no value in treatment of pigmented birthmarks while cosmetic camouflage may offer temporary cover-up.

Pigmented birthmarks can be treated with the Fotona QX MAX laser treatment.

How does laser birthmark removal works ? 

The laser energy produced by Fotona QX MAX is selectively absorbed by excessive pigments within the birthmark, thus resulting in pigment destruction. Pigments that are broken into smaller particles are then eliminated by the body’s immune system.

How many birthmark removal treatments are required ? 

On average, 4 to 6 sessions are required to clear most lesions, with an interval of 2-4 weeks between treatments. Darkly pigmented birthmarks such as Naevus of Ota will require about 10 treatments.

What are the possible side effects of laser birthmark removal ? 

Possible side effects include temporary darkening of the treated skin or the treated skin becoming lighter than the normal skin tone. These effects are transient and can be cleared with the use of sunscreens and topical bleaching creams.
