In brief: Vascular birthmark
Whether laser treatment is best for a vascular birthmark depends on the nature, size, location and evolution of the birthmark.
The age of the patient also needs to be considered. Some vascular lesions will resolve untreated. Treatment is not needed unless they are big, and/or interfering with sight, eating or breathing. Surgery and sclerotherapy are other options for some vascular birthmarks.
