Hi there

Looking at the photo (which may not truly reflect the real appearance), light based therapies, including Yellow Laser or IPL would probably be my preferred mode of treating your condition

A proper examination is first required to determine level of skin pigmentation.

A combination of lightening/bleaching creams (e.g hydroquinone, triluma) and pigment lasers (e.g Q-switch) can be used for treatment.

Hope this helps!

Topical lightening creams and pigment-specific lasers would be my treatment of choice.  Multiple sessions will required for optimal results. 

Such birthmarks are generally more challenging to treat and complete clearance may not be possible.

Hope that helps.

All the best!
