Hi Clewdo, to answer your question about the age to start treatments, I was told that treatment should start at a young age. My daughter started treatment at about 8 months under general anesthesia for about 15 minutes. It was highly successful. Nevus of ota can spread shortly after birth (my daughter was born with a dark spot on her temple and it slowly spread over the next 4 months after birth). She currently has one small blue/gray patch on her front cheek (that she was not born with but that appeared at around age 1) that we are still having treated. The spot on her temple is completely gone due to the laser treatment.
