Can a laser really help in removing a birthmark permanently

Birthmarks are unique developments on our skin that are linked with our individuality or distinguished identities. Sometimes, the appearance of these marks does not excite people and even creates negative emotions such as anxiety, depression, and negative self-perception. Birthmark treatment in Islamabad improves the appearance of an individual, develops confidence, and eliminates negativity and stigmas. This blog will explain whether laser birthmark treatment in Islamabad effectively removes birthmarks permanently.

Birthmark: Overview

The vascular irregularity, pigmentation, or discoloration that appears on the skin at birth or right after birth is called a birthmark. Birthmarks differ in terms of color, size, shape, and texture. They can appear on any part of the body, such as the face, neck, hand, arm, etc. Usually, they are harmless and do not cause any harm to the skin or body, but their appearance may trigger some negative emotions that incite people to treat these marks. 

Can Laser Treatment Really Help in removing A Birthmark Permanently?

Laser birthmark treatment in Islamabad is deemed an effective treatment to permanently address the appearance of birthmarks. This treatment targets specific pigments responsible for the appearance of these marks. Laser technology eliminates those pigments without damaging other surrounding areas. Furthermore, it also stimulates collagen production, leading to better and smoother skin.

Laser Treatment: procedure

Dermatologists at Royal Cosmetic Surgery Islamabad hold an initial consultation before the treatment. The purpose of this meeting is to evaluate the patient’s skin conditions, the mark’s severity and size, and the procedure’s feasibility to ensure optimal treatment. Before starting the procedure, local anesthesia is administered to minimize pain and discomfort. Then a focused and precise light beam is targeted on the specific mark. Energy is absorbed by the pigment, which later on breaks down the pigment after converting it into heat.  Though this is an easy and largely painless procedure, a patient may experience mild sensations such as warmth, sensitivity, etc.
