What Is a Birthmark?

Birthmarks are common, often appearing tan or red and small in size. Sometimes they go away with time, but sometimes they can be permanent and larger, pushing individuals to want to get them treated to reduce their appearance. The two main categories that most birthmarks fall into are vascular and pigmented.

  • Vascular birthmarks occur if blood vessels in a particular area of your skin don’t form the way they should.
  • Pigmented birthmarks occur when there’s an overabundance of pigment cells in one area.
