I'm 15 years old and have a few càfe au lait spots on my right leg. What treatment would you recommend for removal?

I would like to know how effective laser treatments are where I can have this done and also if there are any home remedies I can try? Thanks

Hi Amanda.  The most effective treatment for getting rd of a cafe au lait mark without leaving any scarring is a q-switched Nd:Yg laser.  Typically 3-5 treatments are involved and they are spaced out about 4-6 weeks between treatments.  The cost is going to depend on the size of the spots.
