In brief: Depends on birthmark

Ultimately, it depends on what the birthmark is.
Birthmarks that result from pigment deposits in the skin or a collection of blood vessels are best treated using pulsed dye or similar lasers. Some vascular lesions are treated surgically and yet others will eventually resolve (small, superficial hemangiomas). Visit a center that specializes in treatment of birthmarks to discuss best options.

In brief: Sclerotherapy maybe

In addition to what dr. Balogun said, some vascular birthmarks can be treated with injection sclerotherapy.
