White birth marks. Any suggestions?

I have a white birthmark on all over my legs. How can I treat these white patches ? Is there any treatment to make it to the normal skin color ?

Naves anemicus vs segmental vitiligo.

Really can not comment unless a diagnosis is made. White birthmarks are very hard to treat, as lasers can not put pigment back, however I know that new tech in the next few years from Harvard is looking at replacing skin. This maybe an option, depending on the type of malformation. All the best, Dr Davin Lim. Brisbane. Australia.
