Pigmented Birthmarks and Port Wine Stains

EXCEL V Treatments are also the best choice in removing or lightening pigmented birthmarks, or coffee-and-cream birthmarks.

These marks are patches of skin with high concentrations of pigmentation.

A Port Wine Stain is a vascular birthmark caused by a high concentration of blood vessels in the birthmark. Swollen vessels in the area cause a reddish-purplish discoloration of the skin.

They occur most often on the face but can appear anywhere on the body and may be the cause of personal insecurity so some people choose to have it removed.
