How is the birthmark treated?

Dr. Lynch will perform the nonsurgical laser vein reduction in Peoria, AZ. The treatment session will last from 20 – 40 minutes, depending on the size of the birthmark. You will be positioned in a comfortable reclining seat during the entire procedure.

The area with the birthmark is washed and cleaned in preparation for the procedure. A local anesthetic is often applied upon request to minimize any discomfort caused by the laser. Dr. Lynch will pass the Harmony XL PRO laser across the skin’s surface. It will emit various wavelengths to target the birthmark with pulses. The laser does not damage the surrounding tissue. It targets only the birthmark to lessen the coloration and size of the blemish.

Treatment with the Harmony XL PRO laser has no downtime. You can return to work or regular life promptly after treatment.

Following the laser treatment to reduce the appearance of the birthmark, you might experience some redness, swelling, or bruising in the treated area. Eventually, the birthmark’s appearance will start to fade in 7 – 10 days. Some patients see a rapid improvement, but others take longer to notice any significant changes.

For stubborn birthmarks, Dr. Lynch might have to perform several sessions or provide touch-up treatments to prevent the birthmark from returning.

Will the birthmark return after treatment?

Stubborn vascular birthmarks might show considerable improvement after laser treatment but in time, the birthmark can start to return. If the birthmark does come back, you can have the site retreated with the laser.
