At the Cosmetic Medicine Centre in Brisbane, we see many patients with a birthmark of some kind. In addition to making a person feel self-conscious, birthmarks can be linked to more serious medical conditions. Our expert team offers leading-edge pigment birthmark treatment and birthmark removal services.
There are many different treatments for pigmented birthmarks, from laser therapy to surgery.
Pigmented birthmarks are caused by an excess of melanin, the substance that determines skin colour. There are many types of pigmented birthmarks including:
People who feel that a birthmark might cause health problems, or people who suffer from low self-esteem because of their lesions, can benefit greatly from pigmented birthmark treatment or birthmark removal. The technique for removal depends on the size, type, location and other factors. That’s why The Cosmetic Medicine Centre is equipped with several types of pigment lasers, so that treatment can be “laser-focused” on each patient’s individual needs.
Revlite and PicoSure lasers produce fragmentation of the pigment particles with subsequent flaking off of superficial layers and gradual fading of deeper layers.
If you or someone in your family is concerned about a birthmark and you live in the Brisbane area, we invite you to contact The Cosmetic Medicine Centre today and schedule a caring consultation with one of our doctors.
