​Birthmarks

UPMC Content 3
Birthmarks can come in various shapes, sizes and colors. They are not inherited and have no relationship to anything a mother did, or didn’t do, during pregnancy.
 
Some of the more common birthmarks are tan or dark ones, such as café-au-lait or benign nevi, which can be removed with the MedLite® laser, or vascular birthmarks, such as hemangiomas or port wine stains, that can be removed or lightened with the
V-Beam, Cynergy,™ and CoolGlide® lasers.
