Birthmarks & Causes

Birthmarks & Causes

Birthmarks are spots of discoloration on the skin at birth and are typically permanent. As its name suggests, birthmarks are areas of discoloration on the skin. They can come in various colors and sizes, including red, pink, purple, or brown patches. Birthmarks can appear everywhere on the body, including the face.

Vascular birthmarks are typically colored red, pink, or purple and are caused by an irregularity in the skin’s blood vessels. These birthmarks can appear anywhere on the body. Brown birthmarks are typically generated by clumps of the pigment melanin found in the skin.

Treatment at IPAL

Birthmark removal is a cosmetic operation that employs innovative ways to eliminate birthmarks on the skin. The therapy you receive will vary depending on your birthmark’s size, location, and kind.

At IPAL, we provide various birthmark removal options, including:

  • Laser therapy includes targeting and breaking up the pigment in the birthmark with a laser, allowing the body to absorb it naturally.
  • Surgical excision entails surgically removing the birthmark and suturing the wound closed.
  • Cryotherapy involves freezing the birthmark to eliminate the pigment cells.

Most birthmarks are harmless and do not necessitate medical treatment. Yet, some individuals may discover that they affect their self-esteem and elect to have them removed for cosmetic reasons.
