What types of
lesions/birthmarks can be treated?
Usually most pigmented lesions and birthmarks (portwines,
hemangiomas, cafe au lait, etc...) will benefit from laser therapy. You have to be seen by the doctor to see exactly what lesions

You can resume all of your daily activities immediately after
treatment. You should however avoid sun exposure
for 4-6 weeks and wear a sunblock on a daily basis.
