Birthmark removal

Birthmarks are often unique areas of abnormal deposition of melanocytic materials. These lesions can be quite tiny and even attractive while extremely large lesions can be considered disfiguring.  Many patients both adults and children have told us their birthmarks have hampered their social interactions or career advancements.  These can be hard to treat but technology has given us excellent tools to help do so. Dr. Green uses several techniques to help remove these lesions when it is desired. Most commonly radiofrequency excision and laser resurfacing techniques can be used to removed or lessen the appearance of birthmarks. In rare cases sequential surgical excision is indicated to get the best outcome.
