Every day, many children are born across the world with some type of birthmark. These birthmarks are called “vascular anomalies” and can vary in size, color, and shape. While many children will find that their birthmarks are simply minor flaws on their skin, some will have a birthmark that will require treatment. Vascular malformations are benign lesions that are present at birth and will continue to grow slowly throughout life. At The Vascular Birthmark Institute of New York, our incredible team of doctors is dedicated to using a unique approach to helping children and adults with vascular malformations.
Vascular malformations are very tender birthmarks that require the most precise, gentle, and accurate touch in order to treat properly. Early intervention of infantile vascular malformations can benefit children and adults because of the way that these lesions grow over time. Unlike hemangiomas, vascular malformations do not have a rapid growth cycle that is followed by regression. There are “good” and “bad” to both of these. With hemangiomas, doctors know that they will continue to grow eventually, but with vascular malformations, the growth continues. This continued growth makes every case a very specific one – meaning that no two are alike, no two grow alike, and no two can be treated exactly the same.
At The Vascular Birthmark Institute of New York, Dr. Milton Warner and Dr. Alejandro Berenstein lead our practice with years of experience and deep knowledge of treating hundreds of patients. Our practice is made up of a team of six talented physicians who provide diagnosis and treatment for patients of all ages who suffer from vascular malformations.
