This is me as well. No foundation on skin. Just lipgloss and eye shadow.
As you can see only have it left on my eye lids. I love to make people aware and help let everyone know there is hope and you can remove it. My whole life i was ridiculed and lack self confidence, cant even look at people in the eyes, and have absolute stage fright. That is no longer anymore. I still lack confidence however and gaining that slowly
You are so beautiful--and you cannot see your birthmark at all, I wouldn't have ever known you once had one. Laser technology is amazing! Do you mind sharing where you have been receiving the treatments and how often?
Thank u so much. Ive been going to a place called the laser associates of victoria. This is in australia victoria. They have amazing dermatologists and specialists there. Have been going there for 11 years now. They deal with all sorts of birthmarks. Do you have one too or thinking of removing one?
Hi, I'm a 60 years old woman, from Brazil. So happy to meet people like me, changing experiences and feelings. (sorry for my bad english, I hope you can understand me). By the first time I can see a way to remove my birthmark and I'm very excited.
So, can I write in portuguese? ...
ok as far as foreign languages and me go its like this "Guten tag?" "No comprendo" "No hablo espansol" "come se de say ingles ? " and "Techo mucho hambre". I am pretty certain i spelled it all wrong too hahahahahaha
I am 32 and have a Nevus of Ota birthmark around my left eye. Basically my birthmark makes me look like I have a black eye and there is no shortage of people who ask me "what happened?". I have only recently found out what the official name of my type of birthmark is. Most of the resources I have found online pertain to PWS marks. This is mainly because my type of mark is most prevalent in Asian countries (I'm not Asian -- just lucky I guess! :-).
Does anyone else on this forum have Nevus of Ota? If so, I'd love to connect. I'd also love to connect with anyone who has any type of facial birthmark.
I do use make up and it works okay -- not 100% coverage, but I don't like to be without it.
Looking forward to "meeting" others. Thanks.
i have the same birthmark exactly what you describe and not asian and i do want to connect with you also
