What are birthmarks?
They are birth defects consisting of clusters of pigmented cells which have accumulated in the upper and middle layer of the skin.
What causes birthmarks and what Birthmark Removal options are there?
The underlying reason why birthmarks occur is unknown.
Common examples of birthmarks:
- Café au lait
- Nevus of ota
- Becker’s nevus
What birthmark removal options do you offer?
- Enlighten Pico Genesis laser
- Q-Switch Nd:YAG Fractional laser
The pigmented chromosphere can be totally eliminated with use of both the technologies mentioned above, which destroy pigmented cells. The damaged pigment cells are then absorbed by the tissue fluids and excreted through the lymphatic system. 3 – 4 sessions are required, at 6 weeks intervals, to achieve best results.
- No downtime
- Effective results
- Very safe profile
Before & After
Most brown or black spots can be reversed or lightened after 5 treatments.
No, not at all. You may feel a warm feeling which dissipates after 5-10 minutes.
Treatments are performed 4-6 weeks apart. Pigmentation continues to fade in between each treatment. The interval allows skin healing and fading to maximise before next treatment.
Birthmarks are unique skin markings or discolorations that manifest either at birth or shortly thereafter. They exhibit variations in size, shape, color, and appearance, falling into two primary categories: vascular birthmarks and pigmented birthmarks.
Vascular birthmarks arise from irregular blood vessels and typically present as red, pink, or purple marks on the skin. Common types include salmon patches (angel kisses) and hemangiomas. Salmon patches appear as flat, pink or red marks that often fade naturally by the age of 2. Hemangiomas, on the other hand, are raised birthmarks with a bright red or purplish hue. While they may initially experience rapid growth, they tend to gradually shrink and fade over time.
Pigmented birthmarks result from an excessive accumulation of pigment cells within the skin. They encompass a spectrum of colors ranging from brown to black and include café-au-lait spots, Mongolian spots, and congenital melanocytic nevi. Café-au-lait spots are characterized by light brown pigmentation that may increase in both quantity and size as individuals age. Mongolian spots appear as bluish-gray patches commonly found on the lower back or buttocks, predominantly among individuals with darker skin tones. Congenital melanocytic nevi, on the other hand, manifest as dark brown birthmarks that can either be present at birth or develop shortly after. Notably, larger congenital melanocytic nevi pose a higher risk of potential skin cancer development.
Dark circles under the eyes are a common cosmetic concern that can make you look tired, fatigued, or older than your actual age. The formation of dark circles can be attributed to various factors, including:
Lack of sleep: Insufficient or poor-quality sleep can cause blood vessels under the eyes to dilate, resulting in a darker appearance.
Thin skin and blood vessels: The delicate skin around the eyes makes the underlying blood vessels more noticeable, creating a shadowy effect and giving rise to dark circles.
Genetics: Some individuals have a genetic predisposition to developing dark circles due to factors like inherited skin pigmentation, under-eye hollows, or a family history of dark circles.
Aging: The natural aging process leads to a decrease in skin elasticity and collagen production, causing the skin to become thinner and more translucent. This makes the blood vessels and underlying structures more visible, contributing to the formation of dark circles.
Allergies and nasal congestion: Conditions that cause nasal congestion, such as allergies or sinus problems, can impede blood flow and result in the appearance of dark circles.
