Hi there. Thank you for posting your question. I will do my best to help you.

The doctors who told you that your birth XXXXXXX was due to an overgrowth of blood vessels were correct. They were also correct in saying that pulse XXXXXXX laser was the best treatment for this birth XXXXXXX on your face.

What you need to do now is to Google 'Laser Clinic New Deli' and see what comes up. There will be several places in New Deli offering this service.

I hope that I have answered your question fully and been of some help, please accept this if you are satisfied. If you have anymore questions please contact me again anytime.

Dr Andrew Rynne.

Hi there again.

There is a clinic in Hyderabad called Cosmos. They have pulse XXXXXXX laser. If you phone them up, they will give you all the info you need. Ph. 040 0000.

You may need up to three treatments. Cost varies from institution to institution. You will have to enquire about it in the center where you consult.

These are safe treatments but, temporary pain, redness, bruising, blistering and/or crusting or infection are few possibilities.

There is no known cause for these kind of birth marks.

I hope, this helps. Please accept my answer in case you have no follow up queries.

Regards.

Andrew Rynne.

if i underwent treatment, will i surely be completely away from my birthmark?
if so, is there any possibility of occuring that birthmark which i had now again in future?
as u said i will have 3 treatments but how many months gap should be maintained between treatments?
