Most people of every race, color, and ethnic background are born with a birthmark somewhere on the body. Birthmarks usually manifest at birth, but they have been known to appear up until the age of ten. Birthmarks are pigmented lesions that vary in color, size, and texture. For many, these spots are in an inconspicuous spot on the body or are light enough in color that they are not bothersome or embarrassing. However, for others, certain types of birthmarks are very noticeable and can cause embarrassment. Dr. Benjamin C. Stong at Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery offers a variety of safe and effective techniques for birthmark correction and removal.
Birthmarks are skin pigmentations that come in two categories: vascular and pigmentary. Pigmentary birthmarks are the most common type of birthmark and are typically light brown in color. These are permanent skin pigmentations and can be found anywhere on the body, in all different shapes and sizes. Vascular birthmarks are the most common type of birthmark that is removed or corrected. These birthmarks are highly visible, such as port wine stains and hemangiomas, because they are typically found on the head, face, or the neck. Specific frequency lasers can be used to dramatically lighten birthmarks, many times even making them disappear completely. Each patient is different, and it may take multiple treatments to reach maximum birthmark correction, but Dr. Stong is committed to helping all of his patients achieve the results that they desire.
