Birthmarks Removal Treatment

Home Dermatology Birthmarks Removal Treatment

Our skin is usually affected by different environmental factors, aging signs, and underlying skin conditions. Besides these, sometimes we may have different patches, marks, or scars on the skin since birth. Usually, these marks do not cause us any harm, but they may affect our appearance if they are in a prominent position. Due to this, many people consider undergoing birthmarks removal treatment in Dubai. Please continue reading to learn more about birthmarks removal treatment procedures, results, benefits, cost, and more.

What are birthmarks?

Birthmarks are spots that appear on the body at the time of the birth or a few days after. These can form on any body part and are caused by the overgrowth of arteries, fat components, or fibroblasts. Most birthmarks are tiny and bear no risk to the health, but there can be exceptions. In both cases, birthmarks may alter your appearance and give rise to poor self-esteem and self-confidence.

Types of Birthmarks

There are two major types of birthmarks which are then divided into subcategories:

Pigmented Birthmarks

  • Moles
  • Mongolian Spots
  • Cafe Au Lait Spots

Vascular Birthmarks

  • Port Wine Stains
  • Strawberry Marks
  • Stork Bites

Pre-Procedure Care

Before the birthmark removal treatment, patients must follow some pre-procedure guidelines, such as:

  • Talk about your medical history (if any) in the initial meeting.
  • Avoid exposure to the sun for a few days before treatment.
  • Rest the night before your birthmark removal treatment.
  • Shower and shave any hair at the treatment site.
  • Wear a loose outfit to make the procedure easier.
  • Apply the numbing cream no less than an hour before the treatment.

Treatment Techniques

Different techniques for birthmark treatment in Dubai are available. Some of these techniques are discussed below:

Medications

Some topical products and medications can reduce the appearance of birthmarks, but they highly depend on your condition’s severity. It is recommended to consult a dermatologist in order to find the best one.

Surgical Removal

Some birthmarks cannot be removed through any non-surgical method. In this case, candidates may need to undergo a proper surgical procedure to get rid of them. At Euromed® Clinic Center, the excision technique is used as a birthmark removal treatment.

Laser Therapy

It is the most advanced and effective birthmarks removal treatment in Dubai. The procedure utilizes laser beams to lighten the color of the marks and ultimately removes them.

Laser Removal Procedure for Birthmarks

Laser therapy requires 15 to 30 minutes to remove a birthmark; however, the duration depends on the birthmarks’ size, shape, and color. In most cases, laser treatment is completely painless, but a numbing cream is used to numb the area before treating it to ensure patient comfort.

The step-by-step procedure is as follows:

  • The dermatologist applies a numbing cream or topical anesthesia to the treatment area.
  • Once the treatment site is numbed, he/she will use a laser beam to target the birthmark.
  • The laser used for this treatment is safe and only targets the birthmark without damaging the other areas. It will fade the birthmark and later remove it entirely by breaking the melanin pigment in the skin.

Post-Procedure Care

The dermatologist provides aftercare instructions to each patient, depending on their condition. Some general instructions are as follows:

  • Apply antibacterial ointments as prescribed.
  • Abstain from exposing treated areas to the sun for a few days.
  • Avoid makeup and other cosmetic products.

Birthmark Removal Treatment FAQs

Is the treatment painful?

The birthmarks removal treatment can be a completely painless and non-invasive procedure if the laser is used. However, in the case of pain or distress, topical or local anesthesia can be administered to make the treatment more comfortable.

Is there any downtime?

There is no downtime, and you can get back to your routine right after the birthmark removal treatment. However, you need to follow the doctor’s post-procedure care instructions to get the best results.

How long does the treatment take?

It takes under an hour, depending upon the area of the treatment and your desired results.

How many sessions do I need?

Some patients may get immediate results, while others may take 4-6 sessions to remove the birthmarks altogether.
