Laser Birthmark Treatment

Birthmarks are common for many people and often do not cause any adverse side effects or health risks. However, some birthmarks are the result of abnormalities in blood vessels and capillaries. These birthmarks can grow or change shape over time, causing an array of aesthetic and medical concerns, including pain, swelling, skin discoloration, and bleeding. Laser treatment uses concentrated light to destroy or remove abnormal tissue and reduce the appearance and discomfort of a birthmark. 

Target Treatment Areas

There are several types of birthmarks that can be caused by abnormal blood vessels. Using the advanced technology of the Fraxel laser, our laser birthmark treatment can target all birthmark types in any area of the body, including:



Port-wine stains


Strawberry hemangiomas


Vascular malformations

What to Expect

Laser birthmark treatment is a non-surgical method of reducing pigmentation and other symptoms in vascular birthmarks. Laser treatments typically require 4-6 sessions to significantly reduce the appearance of most vascular birthmarks, with 2-4 weeks in between each session.

During the Procedure

Laser birthmark treatment is typically painless and does not require anesthesia. During treatment, a laser is used to focus energy on the birthmark. The energy from the laser is absorbed by the abnormal blood vessels, causing them to shrink or disappear. Laser sessions typically last between 15 minutes to an hour.


Many patients say that laser birthmark treatments feel similar to sunburn. Mild swelling is common immediately after laser treatments and should go away in a few days. Your provider will schedule follow-up appointments to monitor the progress of the treatment and determine if additional treatments are necessary.

After Treatment

Patients may experience minor side effects after laser treatments, such as redness, swelling, and itching, that should subside within a few days. No recovery time is required after laser birthmark treatment and it may take several weeks for any significant changes in coloration to appear on the treated area.

The Beauty Benefits of Laser Birthmark Treatment

Laser treatments are a great option for reducing the visibility of birthmarks and varicose veins on the face and body. Its Aesthetix uses the most advanced laser technology to pinpoint cell abnormalities without damaging healthy cells surrounding the area. Our Fraxel laser treatment is the original non-ablative fractional laser technology that reduces the appearance of spots and scars while unveiling smoother, younger-looking skin. With our treatments, most patients are able to significantly, if not completely, diminish the appearance of their birthmarks.

Reduce the size
Decrease pigmentation
Improve appearance
Reduce physical effects


Patients can realistically expect a 70 to 90 percent reduction in the visibility of birthmarks with laser treatment. Children and young adults tend to see the most significant results with laser birthmark treatment. This is because birthmarks often grow and change as a child matures, and laser treatment can halt or reverse these changes when performed at an early age. Younger skin also has more elasticity and can recover faster.
