How Does It Work?

The light energy in the laser treatment is finely focused on the birthmark, passing cautiously through the translucent top layers of the skin to heat the underlying blood vessels that help to evoke the birthmark. When the laser light hits the red color of the birthmark, the light is absorbed and its energy released as heat. The heat breaks or singes the small vessels under the skin, which degenerates, leaving the lightened color skin. This non-invasive with virtually no recovery time necessary treatment destroys the vascular capillaries without any significant damage to the overlying skin.
