How effective is laser birthmark removal in terms of completely removing the birthmark?

Birthmarks can be very varied in nature. Response to treatment will hinge on the proper identification of your birthmark.

For example:

Nevus of Ota: almost complete removal after multiple laser treatments

Port wine stain: significant response after multiple laser treatments

Cafe-au-lait macules: variable response. Some respond well. Some don’t. 

Becker’s nevus: poor response

Do see your doctor for a proper assessment or perhaps post a photo of your birthmark for more precise response.

Hope this helps!
