Lasers for birthmarks- CALM

Laser treatment is possible, but it has to be a CALM- congenital navevi or moles do not do so well with Q switch lasers. 

Below is a video of how it is done and the expected outcomes. All the best.

Cafe Au Lait Spot, Treat with Tattoo Laser

Birth marks can appear as people age. Q switched and pico lasers can help this. I suggest seeing an expert for an evaluation. Best, Dr. Emer.
