A little lidocaine topical, a little laser action and bye-bye nevus. I am SO impressed at what laser treatments can do accurately and quickly. I wish I understood Japanese (I think it’s Japanese) to get more of the commentary from the med professional doing this. It looks like it’s painful, especially with all of the soft, thin tissue around the eyes, but the dramatic change in one session would make me come back for more. Remove a lifetime birthmark from my face? Heck yea.
This is a nevus of Ota:
Nevus of Ota is a hamartoma of dermal melanocytes. Clinically, nevus of Ota presents as a blue or gray patch on the face, which is congenital or acquired and is within the distribution of the ophthalmic and maxillary branches of the trigeminal nerve. The nevus can be unilateral or bilateral, and, in addition to skin, it may involve ocular and oral mucosal surfaces. Women are nearly five times more likely to be affected than men, and it is rare among Caucasians. Nevus of Ota may not be congenital, and may appear during puberty.
