Birthmarks

Birthmarks are common. Most vascular birthmarks (derived from the blood vessels and circulation), such as “stork bites” or “angel kisses,” affect a large number of newborns and generally fade over time on their own. Other vascular birthmarks, such as hemangiomas, can grow and cause disfigurement and impairment in certain locations, such as the face and neck. Another form of birthmark is a pigmented lesion, such as a mole . These “congenital nevi” are usually benign and don’t require treatment, but, depending on their size or other features, may need to be followed by a dermatologist over time. Rarely, very large congenital nevi may be at risk to become cancerous and can be associated with internal abnormalities of the nervous system. These may require treatment.

Dermatologists are uniquely trained and qualified to evaluate birthmarks and develop an appropriate treatment plan. Call Teton Dermatology at 307-734-1800 to schedule an appointment for diagnosis and management.
