Sk:n clinics expands their birthmark removal treatments to include birthmarks on children.
Often there is a stigma attached to birthmarks and children can be especially sensitive to negative criticism from their peers. Sk:n clinics offer a sophisticated birthmark removal service for children from infancy up to 16 years of age. Skin care procedures for children are performed by a team of specialist dermatologists that understand the delicate nature of a child’s skin. Children’s services at sk:n clinics include removing birthmarks, port wine stains and blemish treatments.
Big or small, light or dark, ugly or beautiful, birthmarks are blemishes on the skin that can be inconspicuous or obvious and obscure. Some people are born with birthmarks while for others, birthmarks appear shortly after birth and the shape, size, location and colouring of birthmarks can vary from person to person. Most birthmarks are harmless and pose no threat to a person’s health. Yet sometimes, a birthmark can have a negative impact on a person’s emotional well being and self-confidence.
Removing birthmarks can help improve a person’s self- esteem, confidence and quality of life. Sk:n clinics, the UK’s leading birthmark removal specialists, use advanced laser technology which is a simple, safe treatment for removing birthmarks. The laser light is matched to the colour of the birthmark and then a series of short laser bursts are directed at it. Birthmark removal requires a series of laser treatments, which effectively break down the colouring of the birthmark so that it blends in with the natural skin tone. The process is generally painless although the area being treated may experience slight bruising or whitening for a short period of time after receiving treatment. This will fade along with the birthmark. It is advisable to apply a SPF 30 sun screen to the treated area for at least three months after removing birthmarks.
