My 20 month old baby has a beauty mark/mole on her face. Is this something I should be worried about at her young age?

Not necessarily: A "beauty mark"/mole on the face is not generally a problem. Keeping it protected from sun-exposure and trauma (i.e. child picking at it), are about the only things you need to do at this point. If it changes color or the edges become irregular and ragged then get it assess ASAP. Your pediatrician will note it at each well-check as well. ...Read more

Will my beauty mark regrow because it went scabby and fell off after having laser hair removal please can you answer my question thank you?

It may grow back but: Although it is likely that the mole treated with lasers may grow back. This is because lasers can rejuvenate the skin cells and that can cause recurrence of the mole. But that does not mean every single mole removed with laser will grow back. So to answer your question sometime the mole may grow back.
