Birthmark Treatments

Lasers have been used very successfully for the treatment of birthmarks and pigmented lesions for more than 25 years. For pigmentation not suitable for Ruby Laser Treatment, we use Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Advanced Fluorescent Technology.

Activate your body’s own immune system to remove marks gradually. The Q-Switched Ruby Laser produces extremely short pulses of high energy red light. This light is absorbed by the pigmentation. Expect the Ruby laser to be mildly uncomfortable. Your skin may blister, but it will heal in a week or so.

Advanced Fluorescent Technology works in a similar way to the Ruby Laser. The AFT 570 works best on smaller, less noticeable marks. The AFT 540 is used for darker marks with a high concentration of melanin. The length of treatment depends on the size of the pigmented area, and more than one treatment is often needed. Treatment with Advanced Fluorescent Technology is not as painful; most people compare it to the snap of an elastic band.

Full recovery from either treatment usually takes between 4-6 weeks, during which time sun screen factor 30+ must be used, or the area must be covered.
