Birthmark Removal


Birthmarks, though often harmless, can sometimes be a source of cosmetic concern for individuals. At California Dermatology Institute, we understand the impact birthmarks can have on self-esteem, and our experienced dermatology providers offer advanced cosmetic treatments to help you achieve smoother, blemish-free skin.

Birthmarks can be categorized into vascular birthmarks and pigmented birthmarks, each requiring a unique approach to cosmetic management.

Vascular birthmarks, such as hemangiomas and port-wine stains, are caused by abnormal blood vessels in the skin. While some vascular birthmarks fade or shrink over time, others may require cosmetic intervention.

Pigmented birthmarks, such as café-au-lait spots or congenital melanocytic nevi, are characterized by an overabundance of pigmented cells in the skin. Cosmetic treatments can help minimize their appearance.

  • Cosmetic Removal: Surgical excision or other procedures can be considered for the removal of certain pigmented birthmarks, particularly when they are large, prominent, or located in visible areas. These procedures are performed under local anesthesia to ensure comfort and minimize scarring.

Our dermatology providers at California Dermatology Institute have extensive experience in performing cosmetic procedures for birthmark removal, and they will work closely with you to develop an individualized treatment plan based on your specific needs and goals.

It is important to note that not all birthmarks require cosmetic intervention, and our dermatology providers will assess each case carefully to determine the best approach. Additionally, it is crucial to manage expectations regarding the outcome of cosmetic treatments, as results may vary depending on various factors, including the type and size of the birthmark.

Consult with our skilled dermatology providers at California Dermatology Institute to explore the cosmetic options available for birthmark removal and achieve smoother, more even-toned skin, boosting your confidence and helping you feel comfortable in your own skin.
