The laser we use for your treatment depends upon the type and colour of birthmark you have and this will be confirmed at your consultation.
If you have a Vascular birthmarks, we will use a Pulse Dye Laser, which works by emitting a beam of laser light to heat up the faulty blood vessels that form the birthmark. This causes the blood vessels to collapse and stop blood from flowing into the area, which fades the birthmark.
A laser called a ND Yag Laser is used for Pigmented birthmarks. The energy emitted by the laser beam breaks down the cluster of built-up pigment cells into tiny fragments, which are then taken away naturally by the body’s immune system, causing the birthmark to fade.
