Helping You Enjoy Clear, Gorgeous Skin

For the most part, birthmarks are present on the skin from the moment you’re born, though they can sometimes form shortly after birth. They vary in size, shape, and color, and they don’t present much more than cosmetic frustrations, keeping individuals from enjoying clear and healthy-looking skin. While the medical community isn’t totally sure about why or how birthmarks are formed in the first place, we thankfully do have a range of treatment options that can help you address the presence of frustrating birthmarks, so you can enjoy a more evenly-toned and clear look. To learn more about how Certified Dermatology can help you find relief from the presence of birthmarks, take a look at our locations page and reach out to set up your initial appointment at the office that’s most convenient for you.

Types of Birthmarks

Birthmarks can take a number of forms and are typically unique from individual to individual. These are some of the most common types of birthmarks that can be addressed by the talented team here at Certified Dermatology.

  • Brown birthmarks are typically areas of hyperpigmentation that look brownish in color. They can range in shade from light brown to darker brown.
  • Vascular red spots are another common type of birthmark. These are sometimes called “port wine stains” and tend to be comprised of dilated blood capillaries on the face.
  • Vascular birthmarks are the result of improperly formed blood vessels. They tend to be pink, purple, or reddish in color.

Your Informative Initial Appointment

The first step in your journey to finding relief from the presence of unwanted birthmarks will take the form of an informative initial appointment at a Certified Dermatology office. As you can see on our locations page, we have a number of convenient locations, and a member of our team will be happy to help you schedule your appointment at the location that’s most accessible.

During this meeting, you’ll meet with an expert member of our dermatological staff in a warm and inviting setting that keeps you comfortable and ensures that you feel welcomed. Your practitioner will get to know your skincare concerns and learn about the unique qualities of your skin, so the two of you can work together to craft a customized treatment plan.

Once we’ve learned everything there is to know about your skincare concerns, we’ll guide you through the various treatment options we offer. Once we’ve created your treatment plan, we’ll give you a clear idea of what you can expect from the procedure, as well as the recovery period you’ll experience once your treatment is complete. Our goal is your total peace of mind.

Treatment Options for Birthmarks

Depending on the specifics of your birthmark(s), we’ll recommend a treatment that can help you clear away the appearance of hyperpigmentation, so you can enjoy your ideal look. Here are some of the treatment options that can address the presence of birthmarks.

Sclerotherapy

This treatment option was designed to address the presence of malformed veins, which can lead to visible varicose veins and birthmarks like port wine stains. This procedure is quick and easy, and involves injecting a substance into the treatment area that will eventually shrink and break down the blood vessels that are causing your visible birthmark.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser resurfacing is just one of the advanced treatment options that we’re excited to offer. This treatment protocol utilizes advanced laser energy to address the presence of issues like hyperpigmentation on the surface of your skin, breaking up unwanted pigmentation without requiring that you deal with any extensive downtime.
