Removal of a birthmark

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.

There are many different types of birthmarks and different methods to potentially remove them.  Without seeing you or a picture of you it's impossible to know if you might be a candidate for birthmark removal or not.  Sometimes birthmarks can be improved with a laser procedure while others sometimes require surgery.
