Birthmark Removal
Available In Pittsburgh, PA  

Available in Pittsburgh, birthmark removal with the MedLite® C6 laser system removes unwanted pigmentation, sun spots, freckles and more with no downtime and fast results.

MedLite C6 laser uses specialized PhotoAcoustic energy which is absorbed by the pigmentation.  By damaging the pigmentation, the birthmark is lightened or removed entirely.

The MedLite laser system treats pigmentation irregularities such as:

  • Port Wine Stains
  • Birthmarks
  • Cafe-Au-Lait Spots
  • Nevus of Ota
  • Brown Spots
  • Freckles

Most pigmentation irregularities, like birthmarks, are removed after one or two skin treatments, however depending on the degree of pigmentation, additional MedLite laser treatments may be required.

In Pittsburgh, birthmark removal including port wine stain removal is available in our Mt. Lebanon, PA, Shadyside, PA or Wexford, PA med spa locations.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can the birthmark return after having the MedLite laser treatment?
The most common types of port wine stains, birthmarks or pigmented lesions do not return. However, some types of birthmarks may return over time, usually several months to a year. If the birthmark returns the MedLite laser treatment can be performed again.
Is the MedLite laser for birthmark removal painful?
For removal of port wine stains or other types of birthmarks, the MedLite C6 laser emits light in very short pulses of energy. The short pulses of light are often described as feeling like the snap of a rubber band. Following the birthmark removal treatment, the area may feel as though you have a mild sunburn, which dissipates within a day or two. Anesthesia is not necessary for the MedLite laser treatment, but depending on your own comfort level you may request a topical desensitizing cream.
