Medical insurance cover and birthmarks.
This will depend on your individual cover, however in Australia this is partially covered under Medicare. This type of birthmark is called a congenital naves, and will require serial excision by either a surgical dermatologist or a plastic surgeon. The final scar can be improved with lasers. All the best, Dr Davin Lim. Brisbane, Australia.
Birthmark Removal = priceless with lasers, peels, microneedling/prp
Birthmark removal require a series of treatments combining lasers, tattoo lasers, peels or microneedling/prp. I can't speak to your insurance coverage, but I recommend getting a formal evaluation with a cosmetic dermatologist who is an expert in lasers. Best, Dr. Emer
