Laser Removal of Red Birthmarks


Red birthmarks are common. It is also known as vascular birthmarks, strawberry nevus and macular stains. Once developed, they do not go away naturally. If they are not treated properly in a timely manner, they can affect appearance and may increase risk of lesion.

❤ The most effective way to remove red birthmarks is laser treatment.

Laser Removal of Red Birthmarks

Certified by the Europe CE, China CFDA and US FDA

Thanks to the “selective photothermal” property of the Nd:YAG laser, red birthmarks can be removed effectively and accurately. During the treatment, upon laser emission haemoglobin instantly absorbs a large amount of laser energy and hence coagulates due to its thermal characteristics, turning into ferrihemoglobin. When the blood within the unwanted blood vessels coagulates and turns into ferrihemoglobin, they will then be reabsorbed and excreted out of the body through the lymph system. It is a highly selective process aiming to remove red birthmarks only, without causing harm to the surrounding skin tissue. Compared to removing birthmarks by surgery or electric current, lasers can achieve a safer and promising result.

①  Apply long-pulsed Nd:YAG laser that can penetrate 5-6mm depth in the skin, performing effectively.

② Able to penetrate deeply into the skin and generate thermal effects without harming the skin surface. Heat is distributed evenly in the skin and the pigment molecules have low thermal absorption, making the laser a safe option for clients with all skin tones.

③ To improve vascular birthmarks, laser can be used to damage the excess/unwanted blood vessels by harming the haemoglobin at the birthmarks.

★ The laser birthmark removal device in Ai Beauty is equipped with VSP (Variable Square Pulse) technology, which can induce an instant temperature rise, allowing the laser energy to penetrate deeply into the skin, producing a thermal effect without damaging the skin surface .

★ The oxygenated haemoglobin in the blood is the main contribution of the pigment birthmarks, therefore, thermal effect will be used to target the blood vessels only. The blood in the veins absorbs the energy released from the laser and converts it into heat energy, which will damage the walls of the veins and eventually improve the birthmarks.

★ Compared with other lasers that mainly treat the surface of the affected area, the Nd:YAG laser also works on the blood vessels network underneath, which ensures a long-lasting therapeutic result.

From clinical data, one single treatment can achieve 70% removal of birthmarks.

Number of treatment required: It varies and depends on the size and how pigmented the birthmarks are. Our practitioner will be able to advise after the first treatment.

Treatment interval: Once every 4-6 weeks

Treatment duration: About 30-40 minutes depending on the size of the treatment area.

Why using laser to remove red birthmarks

1. Safe and less scarring: The laser will only harm the problematic tissue and leave the normal tissue unharmed, so it has a low risk of scarring and ensures that the treatment is carried out under absolutely safe conditions.

2. Convenient and short downtime: Compared with traditional removal treatment, laser removal of birthmarks has a shorter downtime and allows you to go back to your daily life straight away.

3. Skin tightening and rejuvenation: Using laser to remove red birthmarks has additional benefits as it can stimulate the growth of collagen in the skin, increase skin plumpness, strengthen the natural skin barrier by increasing the thickness of the skin and reduce appearance of blood capillaries.
