What kind of birth marks and moles should be removed?
Birthmarks can include pigmentation-type marks, such as coffee-colored spots, elevated moles, and “Mongolian spots” that are the flat, grayish patches usually found only in children. Port wine stains, or vascular malformations, can be found anywhere on the body and tend to darken with time. Some individuals consider these items of concern. Finally, there are hemangiomas, which are lesions that develop and can remain for years.

How is birthmark removal performed?

Birthmarks close to the surface of the skin, such as port wine stains and hemangiomas, can be removed in this manner.
