There are two main types of birthmarks: vascular and pigmented. Vascular birthmarks are typically red in color and are the result of blood vessels that formed incorrectly. Pigmented birthmarks are caused by a highly concentrated area of melanin in the skin. While some birthmarks are small or inconspicuous, others are very noticeable and embarrassing which may be cause for removal.

As a result, volume loss in areas of the body such as the lips, cheeks, temples, and hands can contribute to an aged appearance.
