Types of Birthmarks

Birthmarks are common skin irregularities present at birth or developing shortly after. They come in different types, each with unique characteristics:

  • Vascular Birthmarks: These are caused by blood vessels close to the skin’s surface. Examples include port-wine stains and hemangiomas.
  • Pigmented Birthmarks: These result from a concentration of pigment cells. Common types include café-au-lait spots, Mongolian spots, and moles (congenital nevi).

Understanding the type of birthmark is crucial in determining the appropriate treatment approach.

Safe Birthmark Removal for Children in Lawrenceville

Safety is our top priority when it comes to treating pediatric patients. At MJR Dermatology, we utilize the latest techniques and technologies for birthmark removal that are safe for children, including:

  • Laser Therapy: Ideal for certain vascular birthmarks, laser therapy can lighten or remove the birthmark with minimal discomfort.
  • Surgical Removal: In cases where birthmarks pose a health risk or are particularly large, surgical removal may be the best option.

Non-Invasive Birthmark Treatments

Not all birthmarks require removal. Some treatments focus on managing the birthmark’s appearance or any symptoms associated with it. These treatments include:

  • Topical Medications: To reduce the size or prominence of certain birthmarks.
  • Monitoring and Observation: Especially important for birthmarks that change over time, regular monitoring ensures any changes are noted and addressed.
