Ask A Doctor Question:
I have a strawberry birthmark above my breast, how much would it cost to have this removed? And would I be left with a scar, if so, how big would it be?- Aubree
Thank you for your question. Laser treatments are typically used to fade birthmarks. Some may fade completely and others may still have some residual color. Multiple treatments are necessary to achieve the best result. The goal is to avoid a scar though there is always a small risk. Costs can vary. You may call us at the office for more specifics.
