I have had multiple treatments (at least 4 different types of lasers) and yes it does "burn" the hair that you have over your birthmark (bad news). But it grows back (good news). The worst part is the smell while you get treatement (the smell of burnt hair). But the cool part is the little mushroom cloud your hair makes while it burns from the laser treatments (seriously pretty cool). I have had 50-100 treatments on my Right Arm, Chest, and Right Shoulder/Back and there is hair all over my arm and chest (normal amount). You may experience scarring (which was REALLY bad on me), so it is definately something to consider.
