Cafe au lait birthmark on leg how will it react to laser surgery?

I have a cafe au lait birthmark on my leg, and would like to get it removed. If I do, is there a chance that hair on my leg will not grow back where the birthmark was? If it will grow back, how long will it take after treatment thanks

I would first confirm this diagnosis with a dermatologist and exclude the possibility of any suspicoius areas warranting biopsy prior to a laser treatment,
