Becker nevus treatment


Many Becker's nevi have excess hair for which laser hair removal works well. At present there is no great laser for the pigmentation/color part of a Becker's nevus, and so your main treatment option would be surgical excision. Q-switched lasers may fade the nevus a little, but will not clear it completely. Dr. Benjamin Barankin, Toronto Dermatology Centre.
