A birthmark is a common skin condition. The most common birthmarks are typically red or tan and small in size. For many people, their birthmark is inconsequential; a small skin spot that goes unnoticed. However, for some, a birthmark can be large or in an area that is highly visible.
At Capital Laser & Skin Care, we can treat both vascular and pigmented birthmarks effectively, so you can see your skin as you imagine it. Our practice is fully equipped with the several different lasers and light-based treatments specifically chosen for effectiveness in the treatment of a variety of birthmarks including port-wine stains, arteriovenous malformations, Nevus of Ota or Ito, Becker’s nevus, Café Au Lait macules and others.
During the consultation, our physicians will thoroughly discuss the history of your birthmark and carefully assess the area to determine the best course of treatment.
