In brief: Not really

The question is how insignificant can the mark be.
Most surgeries on the face leave small scars that all will look better than the hairy nevus but as abirth mark her risk is high that at puberty that bithmark could evolve into a cander. Removal is some better as the child gets closer to puberty but in any case with multiple options plastic surgeons do the be job in hiding scars.

In brief: Plastic surgery

She should see a plastic surgeon, as any surgery can leave a scar, and plastic surgery can at least minimize it.
