Lasers for Birthmark Removal
There are many kinds of birthmarks, some are red, others are brown and yet other are grey. Lasers are very effective tools to remove these birthmarks without any major surgery, cutting or scar. Different kinds of birthmarks are treated with different kinds of lasers.
Pulsed Dye Laser for Red Birthmarks (Port-wine Stain)
We use the world renowned V-Beam Laser made by Candela, U.S.A. It is the most effective laser for these birthmarks and many other red colored growths as well as redness caused by diseases like rosacea and redness in the scars. In fact, it is the Gold Standard to treat the red birthmarks all over the world.
Q-Switched Nd: YAG laser for black, brown and grey birthmarks (Nevus of Ota & Nevus of Ito)
We use the Medlite Laser made by Conbio USA, to treat these birthmarks. Q-switched lasers are the Gold Standard to treat these birthmarks internationally. Treatment is painless as the local anesthesia is given to put the affected area to sleep, and the treatment takes between 15-30 minutes to perform depending upon the size of the birthmark. Patient can go home immediately after the procedure and can resume the normal activities immediately. A series of treatments usually one month apart, are usually needed to erase most of the birthmarks.
