Default Has technology improved enough yet?

Its been almost one year. I wonder if now there is technology that can remove a birthmark without it coming back later. How much has it improved or how long will it be for doctors to come out with a solution to birthmarks?

For now i guess we have to stay STRONG.

early thanks to the replies and comments.

Hi Junior,

As far as I know there has not been anything new that can completely removed a birthmark. I know there is a lot of research going on out there, but as we all know money makes the difference.

You could possibaly contact Dr. Nelson who is the "ask the pws expert" that is on the front of this website.
Dr. Nelson uses several different lasers he might have one that you have not tried yet. He also would know a little bit better about if there is any new laser coming out soon.

Hope this helps.

YEs, Dr. Nelson is the person to go to for answers. He is also an engineer working on ways to improve laser treatments. He has already contributed so much to our field.

Good luck!
