What Birthmark Removal Options Do You Have?
At Dubai Cosmetic Surgery, we offer numerous surgical and non-surgical birth mark removal procedures.
- Laser Birthmark Removal is the most effective treatment used for elimination of irksome congenital nevi. We offer lasers for treating all types of birthmarks, including moles, vascular pigmentation and hemangiomas. We also treat port-wine stains.
- Intense Pulsed Light therapy is another really effective birth mark removal procedure offered by DCS. It is similar to laser treatment, with the only difference being wavelength and intensity of light used for treatment.
Which Laser Do You Use for Birthmark Removal?
We use FDA approved latest laser systems for birthmark removal. These include:
- Q-Switch – When using Q-Switch lasers for birthmark removal, the practitioner makes the laser beam incident on the nevi. Laser beams switch on and off automatically and this way destroy the accumulated melanin by delivering the right amount of energy. According to a latest research, Q-Switch lasers can result in dramatic reduction of birthmarks, and complete removal in over 80% cases.
- Alexandrite laser – This type of laser works by damaging and destroying hyperactive melanocytes – cells responsible for production of melanin, a naturally occurring pigment that adds color to your hair and skin. Alexandrite works by breaking the concentrated pigment into microscopic particles. These tiny particles are then flushed out of the body by its immune system. Alexandrite lasers have shown dramatic results in birthmark removal.
How Many Sessions Will I Need?
Number of sessions required for complete birthmark removal varies from person to person depending on the type of birthmark and the laser system used. Pigmented birthmarks usually disappear completely after 3 to 6 treatments, whereas vascular birthmarks often take 8 to 12 sessions to fade away.
