How Are Birthmarks Caused?

There is no definite cause as to what causes birthmarks. Your family history could play a role in the development of birthmarks. Your genes decide the amount and the location of pigmentation in your skin. Any genetic changes or predisposition can alter the pigmentation process and result in a birthmark.

Birthmarks can be of two types — red and pigmented birthmarks.

  • Red birthmarks: These birthmarks are red in color due to the presence of blood vessels in and around that birthmark. It can further be of the following types:
    • Strawberry hemangiomas: They are also known as the strawberry mark, nevus vascularis, capillary hemangioma, and hemangiomaThread Lift cost in India simplex. They might appear anywhere on your body but are commonly found on your face, scalp, back, or chest. They look like a strawberry-colored patch in your skin as they consist of small, very closely packed blood vessels. They typically grow quickly, stabilize at a certain size, and then dissipate. Strawberry hemangiomas usually go away by the time your child is nine years old. Some skin discoloration or puckering may remain at the site of the hemangioma.
    • Cavernous hemangiomas: They are also known as angioma cavernosum and cavernoma. They are similar to strawberry hemangiomas but are deeply situated. They may appear as a red-blue spongy mass of blood-filled tissue. Some of these lesions go away on their own, usually as your child gets closer to starting school.

Cavernous hemangiomas

    • Port-wine stains. These are flat, purple-to-red birthmarks consisting of dilated (widened) blood vessels. These birthmarks are most common on the face and can vary in size. Port-wine stains are often permanent (unless treated) and may thicken or darken over time, causing emotional distress.

Port-wine stains

    • Salmon patches: These are also called stork bites. They appear as small marks, consisting of small blood vessels. These are red in color because these blood vessels are visible through your skin. They are commonly seen on your forehead, eyelids, upper lip, between the eyebrows, and the back of your neck. These birthmarks often fade away with age.
    • Pigmented birthmarks: These birthmarks are found in areas where the color of your birthmark is different from the color of the rest of your skin. It can be of further types:
      • Mongolian spots: They are typically bluish in color and resemble bruises. They are most commonly found on your buttocks and/or lower back, but they can also be found on your trunk or arms. These spots are more common in people with darker skin.
      • Pigmented nevi: They are also known as moles. They are skin growths that are usually flesh-colored, brown, or black. Moles can appear anywhere on your skin, either alone or in clusters.
      • Congenital nevi: These are moles that are present at birth. These birthmarks are very common and, depending on their size, have a slightly increased risk of developing skin cancer. Larger congenital nevi (>20 cm) are more likely to develop into skin cancer than smaller congenital nevi. A healthcare provider should examine all congenital nevi, and any changes in the birthmark should be reported.

Congenital nevi

      • Cafe-au-lait spots: These are light tan or light brown spots that are usually oval in shape. They usually appear at birth but might develop in the first few years of a child’s life. Cafe-au-lait spots might be a normal type of birthmark, but the presence of several cafe-au-lait spots larger than a quarter might occur in neurofibromatosis (a genetic disorder that causes abnormal cell growth of nerve tissues) and other conditions.
    • Other types of birthmarks: Apart from red and pigmented types of birthmarks, there can be the following types of birthmarks too:
      • Nevus sebaceous: It is also known as an organoid hamartoma. This birthmark usually develops on the scalp of your baby. With age, the shape and size of this birthmark may change but it usually remains permanently. This birthmark is a slightly raised hairless (or nearly hairless) patch surrounded by healthy hair.
      • White spot: It is also known as Hypopigmented macule. This birthmark is frequently a patch of skin that is lighter in color than your child’s surrounding skin. This location can be elevated or flat. It could be round, oval, leaf-shaped, or a different shape. The majority of them appear on your chest, abdomen, back, or buttocks. They can also appear in other parts of your body. They usually disappear as you age.

 

A professional, well-qualified and experienced dermatologist can identify a birthmark through a physical examination. Your dermatologist may suggest a biopsy, in some cases, to determine the kind and severity of your birthmark.

To rule out other skin pigment diseases such as vitiligo, a Wood’s light examination is performed. The process is done in a dark environment and involves the use of light to brighten specific regions of your skin.

Birthmark Removal treatment

 

Your birthmark generally does not require removal. But sometimes their shape, size, and location are very esthetically problematic, which requires their removal. Your birthmark may also grow and result in skin cancer in a few cases. Therefore it is better to get them removed rather than waiting for them to be problematic.

Your dermatologist can suggest or perform any one or combination of the following therapies to remove your birthmark:

 

  • Laser therapy. It is one of the most popular and successful ways to remove birthmarks. It is a non-invasive therapy in which highly pulsated energy beams are directed towards your birthmark to destroy it. You might require a local anesthetic during this procedure. Some swelling and bruising are normal after the procedure which will resolve on their own. Various types of laser can be used to remove your birthmarks:
    • Carbon-dioxide laser: This produces light with a specified wavelength in the mid-infrared band (10600 nm), and its energy is a viable alternative for DPN.
    • The Erbium Yag laser is a solid-state laser that emits a wavelength of 2940nm, which is closer to the top layers of skin or the water peak spectrum. It is the most successful, least painful method of removing DPN.
    • A potassium titanyl phosphate (KTP) crystal: YAG laser is used in this approach.

    • Cryotherapy. Cryotherapy includes using liquid nitrogen to freeze the wart. When a wart is frozen, a blister forms under and surrounding it, which eventually rips the wart away from the skin. The operation is a little unpleasant and will most likely require multiple sessions. It normally works effectively, but on dark skin, it might cause discoloration and scarring.
    • Medicines. Some birthmarks can be managed by medicines and birthmark removal creams to some extent. Your doctor can give the following medicine to manage your birthmark:
      • Beta-blockers: For hemangiomas, controlling blood flow is important. Therefore beta-blockers are given to alter the blood flow for reducing its color and extent.
      • Corticosteroids: Your doctor can inject corticosteroids inside your birthmark or give you corticosteroids orally to reduce swelling in and around it. It is used to shrink the size of your birthmark.
        Topical creams: Some OTC and prescription birthmark removal creams are also available that can help lighten your birthmark. However, you should use these birthmark removal creams as instructed by your doctor and over small-sized birthmarks.
    • Surgery. Your birthmark can be removed by performing minor surgery. It can be done for very deep hemangiomas that might damage your healthy tissues. It is usually an outpatient treatment and may even be done in your dermatologist’s office rather than a hospital. In this procedure, under local anesthesia, your doctor will make a small cut to remove your birthmark.

Q: Can a brown birthmark be removed?

A: Treatment for brown birthmarks is determined by the size, type, and location of the birthmark on the body. Some birthmarks are surgically excised, which removes the birthmark completely but leaves a scar.

Q: Can Lemon remove birthmarks?

A: Lemon can lighten your birthmark in some cases but can not remove it. Apply a few drops of lemon juice to your birthmark, leave it for at least 20 minutes, then wash it off with warm water and pat your skin dry. Repeat this procedure at least three times per day until your birthmark is gone.

Q: Do birthmarks darken with age?

A: They usually appear between one and four weeks of age, then grow – sometimes quickly – for a few months. They stop growing between the ages of six and twelve months and then gradually fade away over the next few years.

Q: What do brown birthmarks mean?

A: Birthmarks can be passed down through families. Some marks may resemble those on other family members, but the majority do not. An overgrowth of blood vessels causes red birthmarks. Pigment cells (melanocytes) cause blue or brown birthmarks.

Q: What causes birthmarks?

A: Birthmarks are typically caused by an overgrowth of a structure that is naturally present in your skin. Vascular birthmarks occur when your blood vessels do not form properly. Pigmented birthmarks are caused by an overgrowth of the cells in your skin that produce pigment (color).

Q: Is laser birthmark removal painful?

A: Laser birthmark removal is a completely painless procedure that requires no anesthetic. There will be no pain or discomfort, just a slight tingling sensation. Laser treatment can significantly reduce the dark tones of your birthmarks, coffee-cream birthmarks, and even completely even out the tone of your original birthmark.

Q: How do you cover a brown birthmark?

A: You can use makeup products to cover your brown birthmark. Select a color-correcting concealer or primer that will mask the appearance of your birthmark. On reddish marks, use a green concealer, on purple or blue marks, a yellow concealer, and on brown or tan marks, a purple or lavender concealer.

Q: How do you cover up a birthmark?

A: Try using makeup to cover up your birthmark. You can choose an appropriate color corrector that can neutralize the color of your birthmark. Select a green concealer for red birthmarks, yellow for blue birthmarks, and purple for brown birthmarks.

Q: Are birthmarks Genetic?

A: Some birthmarks are inherited and run in families, but the majority are not. Some are caused by gene mutations on rare occasions. Some babies born with port-wine stains, for example, have a rare condition known as Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome.

Q: What is the rarest birthmark color?

A: Port-wine stain birthmarks are the most uncommon (less than 1% of people are born with them) and are caused by capillaries in the skin that are wider than they should be.

Q: Do birthmarks grow hair?

A: Birthmarks that babies are born with, or develop soon after birth may have hair growing out of them. Any hair that grows out of a mole can be darker and coarser—and even grow faster than the rest of your body hair.

Q: Do birthmarks grow?

A: The color, size, appearance, and shape of birthmarks vary. Some are permanent and will grow in size over time. Others completely vanish.

Q: Can birthmarks be cancerous?

A: Most birthmarks are harmless and do not pose a cancer risk. A very rare type, known as a giant congenital melanocytic nevus, can develop into melanoma (become cancerous) if it is larger than 20cm in diameter.

Q: When should I worry about a birthmark?

A: You should decide about removing your birthmark when your normal activity is hampered by the birthmark; the birthmark bleeds or exhibits other distressing symptoms, or the birthmark causes you to be self-conscious about your appearance.

Q: What happens if you take off a birthmark?

A: You should not remove your birthmark by yourself. Cutting off any growth raises your risk of infection, particularly if the tool you use is not properly sanitized. You can also leave a permanent scar where the mole was previously. Another risk of removing a mole yourself is not knowing if the mole is cancerous.

Q: How long does it take to remove a birthmark?

A: To achieve the best results, a series of outpatient treatments may be required. Laser birthmark removal is virtually painless and does not usually necessitate an anesthetic. Depending on the size and pigmentation of the birthmark, treatment can take anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours.

Q: Can you bleach a birthmark?

A: Not all birthmarks can be bleached. Skin lightening, also known as skin bleaching, is a cosmetic procedure used to lighten dark spots on the skin or to achieve a more even skin tone. It’s typically used to mask blemishes like birthmarks and dark patches (melasma).
