Cafe Au Lait or Beckers Nevus / BirthMark -- Tattoo Laser Treatment

The only possible treatment is tattoo laser (ex ruby, yag etc).   I suggest seeing an expert for treatment options.  Often these improve but may recur.  You will need a series of treatments.  Best, Dr. Emer.

Diagnosis before treatment.

We really do need a diagnosis before any treatment. Is this since birth or worsened since puberty? Could be an early Becker's naevus, or a Cafe Au Lait macule. If it was the later, QSL or tattoo lasers can help.Kind regards, Dr Davin Lim
