About Red Birthmarks

Red birthmarks are a vascular malformation, or an irregular growth of blood vessels that develops before birth or in infancy. There are different types of vascular birthmarks that vary in appearance, including:

  • Salmon patch – small pink spots with a flat surface, often found on newborns. Also called a stork bite, salmon patches usually appear on the forehead, neck or face.
  • Strawberry hemangioma – dark red in color, commonly occurs on the face and neck, but also appears on other body parts.
  • Port-wine stain – starts with a slight discoloration, becomes a darker shade of red or purple not treated. Typically forming on the face, some port-wine stains cover large areas of the body.

Removing Red Birthmarks

Laser birthmark removal is effective for most types of red birthmarks. A pediatric specialist is qualified to treat infants with birthmarks or other skin conditions. A pediatric anesthesiologist is also available for cases that require a general anesthesia.
