Birthmarks can appear anywhere on the body and come in all shapes and sizes. While most are small, many can be visible and impact how patients feel about their overall appearance. With professional birthmark removal in New York, you can restore the texture and look of your skin. Using modern dermatological techniques, Dr. Clark can help you see a significant reduction in your birthmark or even remove it entirely!
At MD Skin Science, we dedicate ourselves to helping our patients look and feel better about their skin every day of their life. Our goal is to provide top-of-the-line cosmetic and non-surgical procedures to our patients to help them achieve clear and healthy skin they can feel comfortable and proud in.
How Birthmark Removal Can Improve Your Skin’s Appearance
While birthmarks are physically harmless, they can still have a significant impact on your life. These skin irregularities appear either when a baby is born or soon after, but they can stay with you for your entire life.
In cases where patients have highly visible birthmarks (such as on the face), they can impact your confidence in how you look. Our birthmark removal treatment aims to restore your skin to a smooth, even texture wherever your birthmark might be.
At MD Skin Science, we can treat birthmarks and other skin concerns using a range of non-surgical treatments. These treatments can not only improve the appearance of birthmarks, but they can provide your skin with an overall improved look and feel. You can not only reduce birthmark visibility but enhance and rejuvenate your skin at the same time.
What Is the Treatment Like?
At MD Skin Science, we provide several treatment options for birthmark removal. Each of these treatments can also effectively help with a range of other skin concerns. These include:
- Laser Skin Resurfacing: Using precise lasers, we carefully remove the upper layer of affected skin to reveal the skin below. When your body replenishes these cells, it results in a decrease in the appearance of birthmarks.
- Chemical Peel: A chemical peel uses a medical-grade chemical solution to remove the top layer of skin over the birthmark. As your body replaces the birthmark skin with new cells, the texture evens out.
- Microdermabrasion: The best option for milder birthmarks, microdermabrasion gently removes the outer layer of affected skin. Like the other treatments, your body can then replace this skin with cells that give your skin an even and consistent tone and texture.
- Surgery: While surgical options do exist, we use only non-surgical methods at MD Skin Science. However, if surgery is the only way to treat your birthmark, we can help you find the right specialist for your needs.
Every one of our birthmark removal treatments is non-surgical and comes with minimal downtime. For most of our treatments, you may spend only about half an hour in the office for your session, and you can return to your daily life right away. Dr. Clark uses personalized methods to ensure that every treatment is comfortable for her patients while also optimizing the outcomes.
Which Birthmark Removal Treatment Right for Me?
If you have a birthmark, we can work with you to find a treatment that will effectively reduce its visibility or remove it entirely! When you come in for your consultation, Dr. Clark can evaluate your situation and every aspect of the birthmark you want removed. Then, pulling from her years of experience, she can work with you to build a birthmark removal plan that will help you achieve your goals.
Birthmarks vary significantly in cause, shape, color, and size. In order to get results that matter, it is important to receive the right kind of treatment. Dr. Clark has helped countless patients with all manner of birthmarks achieve even and clear skin throughout her years of experience.
We build your plan from the ground up, including:
- Type of treatment for your birthmark
- The ideal number of sessions
- Additional therapies
- And more
We provide you with complete information at every step, so you can be in full control over your birthmark removal treatment the whole way.
When Can I See Results?
Most patients will see a significant reduction in their birthmark after a single treatment. However, it can take several sessions to reach your goals, depending on the type and size of the birthmark.
After each treatment, patients can experience some redness and swelling around the treated areas. But these are entirely normal and should fade within about a week. Some patients prefer to take the first week after treatment off, especially if the targeted birthmarks are on the face. However, you should still be able to go about your daily life the same day as your treatment. After each session, you will see continued improvements as you get closer and closer to your target goals.
