How are pigmented birthmarks treated?

ANSWER

In most cases, no treatment is needed for birthmarks. But when they do, that treatment depends on the kind of birthmark and its related conditions.

Large or prominent moles that affect appearance and self-esteem may be covered with special cosmetics. Moles can also be removed surgically.
