Birthmark on forehead
Thank you for your question. There are various ways to remove birthmarks, depending on its etiology. For example, a birthmark caused due to a vascular problem needs a completely different treatment than a birthmark such as a mole. More often than not, vascular birthmarks need to have some form of laser treatment. They can require more, but a laser is generally a minimum. Other birthmarks such as a mole, can be excised in the office with relative ease. The size and location will determine the final outcome. A photograph always helps but there is no substitute for and in person physical examination. Make sure you visit with a board certified plastic surgeon for the best outcomes.

Birthmark on the Forehead
You can remove this surgically or by laser. You are guaranteed it will be completely removed if you remove it surgically yet it might leave a slight scar. It may not be completely removed by a laser.
