What are Birthmarks?
Birthmarks are benign skin irregularities which appear at birth or in the following few weeks, hence the name. These colours marks can be present in two different types: vascular birthmarks and pigmented birthmarks. Not only do the two types vary in colouration, but they also have different causes with vascular birthmarks occurring as a result of abnormal blood vessels and pigmented birthmarks being caused by a clustering of pigment cells.
Common Types of Birthmarks:
• Strawberry Marks
• Port-Wine Stains
• Salmon Patches
• Cafe Au Lait Spots
Our team at The Laser Treatment Clinic has over 25 years of experience in treating various skin concerns, including birthmarks. We specialise in the laser removal of the most common birthmark types using Nd:Yag Laser and Intense Pulsed Light Skin Rejuvenation.
We can treat flat birthmarks as long as they are either strawberry, red, pink, or brown in colour. Here at The Laser Treatment Clinic, we also treat vascular skin markings. However, we cannot treat birthmarks which are blue, black or purple in colour, nor do we treat any birthmarks that are raised above the skin’s surface, or moles.
While we can treat light and olive to medium brown skin types, we do not treat birthmarks on darker skin types.
Our laser birthmark removal treatments include the following:
• Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) for vascular birthmarks
• Nd:YAG Laser Treatment for pigmented birthmarks
We recommend using the following homecare products to complement your in-clinic treatments, and maintain your results:
• Marine Boost Super Serum (skin revitalising serum/booster)
• SPF (sun protection)

I'd used their services and I'm satisfied with the results. I went there for a birth marks treatment and now there is no sign from them. The services may seem expensive, but still the experts will solve your problems. I'm planning to go for a pigmentation removal treatment soon.
I was born with this dark unsightly Birth Mark on the side of my face. It made me very self conscious when I had to face people. I was using a lot of make up to cover it every day, but I was always worried the makeup would wipe off. After only 5 treatments, the Birth Mark is now permanently gone. I am extremely happy with my results.
I had a reddish brown birthmark on the side of my neck which could be seen quite prominently against my olive complexion. I've had such wonderful results and I am very pleased with the staff at the clinic who have removed this mark for me.
I tried a range of treatments at a few other clinics here in London and in Dubai but nothing had as significant an effect as when I had my treatments here. I am from a hot country so I want to enjoy wearing shorter dresses but up until now, I have never felt comfortable exposing my legs. The clinic were able to remove my birthmark and were always friendly when I spoke with them. It is a nice and comfortable environment to be treated in.
I have white skin and had a brown birthmark across my forehead. I wasn't ever able to conceal it with makeup so when I turned 18 I came to the laser treatment clinic and had a course of treatments which removed my birthmark. It does feels strange to not see that darker mark across my forehead that had always been there ever since I can remember but it feels fantastic that my skin is now so clear!
