Port-wine stains and Salmon patches are birthmark malformations of capillaries visible through the skin. Most often located on the forehead, eyelids, upper lip, between the eyebrows, and the back of the neck, they tend to fade as the baby grows. These anomalies are non-malignant, asymptotic skin ulcerations that are present at birth and subject to cosmetic removal due to their unaesthetic aspect. Both the port wine stain removal laser treatment in Birmingham and the salmon patch removal laser treatment in Birmingham are efficient, painless cosmetic alternatives that heal the affected areas leaving minimal scarring.
The transitory capillary dilatations called salmon patches occur in about 70% of newborns and normally ameliorate on their own. They appear like pink or red skin ulcerations with poor delimitations. Though most of the salmon patches disappear transiently during the first year of life, the ones on the nape of the neck persist into adulthood in 50% of cases. In order to repair these skin lesions, the salmon patch removal laser treatment in Birmingham may be the cosmetic solution.
Conversely, port-wine stains occur in 3 per 1000 births both in males and females but they do not disappear spontaneously and even enlarge as the infant grows. Pink, red or purple patches with clear edges, port wine stains usually appear on the face and neck. Though asymptomatic, if visible, they cause psychological trauma and lack of self-esteem requiring cosmetic therapy.
