Medicines are suggested by the dermatologist if you do not want to undergo laser treatment. The results of medicines are not permanent as they will only lighten the birthmarks. And the outcome only lasts when you take the medications continuously.
In the surgical procedure, the birthmark is removed directly from the skin surface. The whole procedure is painless as it is performed under topical anaesthesia. The surgery is performed if the birthmark has not faded away from the laser treatment. The surgery can also result in scarring if an unskilled doctor performs the procedure.
The recovery time depends on the type of treatment selected. In the case of laser treatment, it only requires a week to recover and you can return to your life activities right after the treatment. In the case of a surgical procedure, it may take more than one week. You may feel redness and swelling after getting the treatment. But it is temporary and will fade away in a few days.
