What could be done to remove this spot on my back ?
Hi, i am a 17 year old Chinese(Asian) female going on 18 this year, and i have had a rather large mongolian spot on the top right corner of my back since young. It measures around 4inches by 5inches and is a faint, grey colour with a slight tint of blueishness. I have read many online articles which mentioned that such birthmarks which remain after puberty are usually permanent. Is there any way i can get the spot to lighten significantly, or disappear(besides laser removal)? Thanks.
Usually mongolian spot disappears gradually with age.If not you can go for lasers .Among lasers, Q-switched Nd:yag laser( 1064 nm) would be the best.Consult a dermatologist who has this particular laser.Creams are not going to give any result on this so, don't waste your time on that.
mongolian spot is very common in asian skin.
mostly they fade out as age increase.
but in case it remain,dont worry.
LASER is best option for that.it is very effective in this condition.
result may vary.but result is there only.
