Can you get rid of dark birthmarks with a laser?

In brief: Depends
By saying "dark" do you mean pigmented or red? Yes, you can treat both pigmented and vascular marks with the laser but every patient needs to have an individualized approach.
Just because you "can" treat something with a laser does't mean you "should" do it. Seeing a dermatologist or plastic surgeon or maybe and ENT doctor who treats these types of things will help you find out what is best.
