We have treated many birthmarks in the past that are resistant to traditional q-switched lasers. In many cases, this is because the birthmark is textured (bumpy) and traditional laser treatments cannot penetrate to the depth required to have an effect.
More recently, we have begun to use q-switched laser treatments for the removal of deep nevi without excision (surgical removal). Because we do not have to use surgical removal for these types of birthmarks patients can still get permanent removal – but without scarring. Take a look at the pictures below to see what Sciton Profractional Laser Resurfacing can do for a dark textured birthmark.
