Laser Procedures

The pediatric dermatology team members at AdventHealth for Children, formerly Florida Hospital for Children, are experts in using laser therapy to treat vascular birthmarks, including port wine stains and hemangiomas, as well as pigmented birthmarks and scars of all kinds, from acne to burns.

Excimer Lasers
The light of the excimer laser is emitted in a highly controlled manner to treat specific skin issues, including psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, vitiligo and palmar plantar lesions.

Light Boxes

Similar to the excimer laser, the light box uses a different wavelength of UV light. It may be used for more widespread eczema, psoriasis, vitiligo and other skin conditions.

Hand and Foot Light Box
This light box is effective in treating skin conditions that are limited to the hand and feet such as contact dermatitis, eczema and psoriasis.

Sedation Procedures

In some cases, our young patients will be more comfortable when they are able to fully relax. Our dermatologists works closely with our Sedation Service Unit to provide your child with an effective treatment that is as stress- and anxiety-free as possible.
