When considering laser birthmark removal, It's important
to approach the treatments with the right set of expectations. Not all birthmarks
can be treated with lasers and the birthmark removal we perform is typically limited
to those birthmarks that are flat. If your birthmark is raised or has hair on it,
you may have to look at getting the birthmark excised (surgically removed) rather
then removed with a laser.
In addition to being limited in the type of birthmarks we can treat with lasers,
it is also important to understand that laser birthmark removal may work very well
for one person and poorly for another. There is much variability in the physical
makeup of a birthmark and two birthmarks that may look very similar may react very
differently to laser treatments. Some birthmarks may be completely removed and some
only partially. Some may take only 2-3 treatments, while some may take, 4, 6 or
more laser treatments to respond. This means that when you come to a consultation
there may be some uncertainty about how your birthmark will respond.
Celibre is unique when it comes to laser birthmark removal ( cafe-au-lait or and/or
nevus) because we possess two separate kinds of q-switched lasers for the removal
of birthmarks. Q-switched lasers are high powered lasers that fire laser light energy
into the skin in short bursts measured in billionths of a second. By using these
short high powered bursts of energy associated with q-switched lasers, we are able
to break down the pigment associated with the birthmarks. The body can then remove
the excess pigment, returning the skin to it's normal tone. During the laser treatment,
the light energy of the lasers passes through the upper layers of the skin and is
absorbed by the darker pigment of the birthmark. You will feel a hot tingling sensation
as the laser energy is absorbed by the birthmark. The laser treatments normally
last between fifteen and 30 minutes. Although there may be some discomfort during
treatment, there is no down time after the procedures. You will be able to return
directly to work, home or school.
