Are there any other types of pigmented birthmarks - other than CALs and nevi? Do any of them fade with age?

There are other types of birthmarks and some may fade with age. My suggestion would be to see an expert who has multiple lasers (ProYellow, Excel V, Pulsed Dye)to treat the deep and superficial portions of a birthmark.  It likely will take a series of treatments for improvement.  Best, Dr. Emer.
