Birthmark Removal with PicoWay Laser and Dr Firas

Each birthmark is totally unique, and while some may embrace them, others may feel it detracts from their physical appearance, and seek to remove their marks. Luckily, if you are seeking a way to remove birthmarks and achieve a more even complexion, there are plenty of options- chief among them, the PicoWay laser, available with Dr Firas Al-Niaimi.

What is a Birthmark?

There are two key types of birthmarks. Some are red in colour and vascular by nature, caused by blood vessels, such as port wine stains or hemangiomas. For these types of birthmarks, treatment with other types of lasers, such as the V Beam Prima, is recommended. However, other birthmarks are areas of pigmentation, usually brown in colour, such as café-au-lait birthmarks. This is where PicoWay lasers excel. Unlike other forms of pigmentation, there is no way to prevent birthmarks. Fortunately, they can be safely and effectively treated.

Treating Birthmarks with PicoWay

The PicoWay laser is a leading technology for treating areas of pigmentation, such as age spots, sun damage, moles and birthmarks. During treatment, short bursts of laser light are used to fade pigmentation, helping to reduce the appearance of prominent birthmarks. PicoWay allows for better results in fewer treatments, and uses less heat, so is far more comfortable for patients. As a non-invasive procedure, patients can enjoy minimal recovery time, and as long as Dr Firas’ aftercare advice is followed, many can return to their usual routine immediately after leaving the clinic.

All treatments with PicoWay require a consultation with Dr Firas prior to undergoing any procedure. This allows the doctor to assess your unique skin concerns, ensuring PicoWay is the best treatment for producing optimal results for you, and gives him an insight into what your goals and expectations for your skin may be.
