Birthmark Removal for the Face
Birthmark removal for the face is fast, effective and requires no downtime when performed with the MedLite® C6 laser system. Available in our med spas in Pittsburgh, birthmark removal treatment effectively lightens or removes birthmarks and other types of skin pigmentation conditions.
The MedLite® laser removes birthmarks, port wine stains and other types of unwanted brown pigmentation through the power of PhotoAcoustic energy.
The specialized PhotoAcoustic energy is absorbed by the port wine stains, or brown mark, which is then damaged and lightened or removed entirely.
Most pigmentation irregularities, like the port wine stain birthmark, are removed after one or two skin treatments, however depending on the degree of pigmentation, more MedLite laser treatments for the port wine stains may be required.
In Pittsburgh, birthmark removal is performed in our Mt. Lebanon, PA, Shadyside, PA and Wexford, PA med spa locations.
