Pigmented birthmarks come in a variety of shapes and sizes. In this discussion, we'll review laser treatments for brown birthmarks (pigmented) such as cafe-au-lait birthmarks. (For vascular birthmarks like port wine stains, click here.)

Regardless of the type you have, we understand that birthmarks can be bothersome to you. That's why we use only gold standard q-switched (very high powered) lasers for birthmark removal.

It's not clear why some babies have birthmarks and others do not. What we do know is that (brown or pigmented) birthmarks are caused by excess deposits of melanin and/or skin tissue. Generally birthmarks are benign (non cancer causing) and do not need to be treated, and normally birthmarks are removed for cosmetic reasons.

 

What are Birthmarks?

Pigmented birthmarks like cafe-au-lait marks are pigmented spots usually present from the time of birth. They are comprised of giant melanosomes (cells) that contain an abnormally high density of melanin - the pigment that creates the color in your skin.

Causes of Pigmented Birthmarks?

It is not known why some of us have these birthmarks and others do not, but it is known that their occurrence is higher in darker skinned individuals like Hispanics, Asians and African Americans.

Types of Birthmarks

Congenital moles (nevi): This type of birthmark can very in shape and size but most are dark or brown colored. They are found on all areas of the body. If you have moles of this type that are raised, then we may not be able to treat them as we normally do not treat any raised lesions.

Café-au-lait spots: This type of birthmark is usually flat and smooth. They are often oval shaped and are light brown or a bit darker in color. They are most often found on the torso, buttocks or legs.
