I have a nevus Birthmark on my face and want it removed. Could it be done by laser or would it need surgery? Cost? (Photo)

Congenital naves - serial excision

This type of birthmark is best removed with surgery. Laser can help fade the birthmark, but it will recur. See a Board Certified Plastics or Dermatologist for this procedure. All the best, Dr Davin Lim. Brisbane. Australia.
