Hello Doctor,

I have a cafe de lait birthmark (based on my own identification) at a visible area which I would like to seek treatment to remove it. I understand that both dermatologist and certain GP are able to offer laser treatments for removal of the birthmark. I am hoping to spend minimally. I am wondering if it is important to seek treatment from a dermatologist instead of a GP? What are the associated risk if I seek GP and would the end result differ significantly? I conceive that the treatment is done by the same type of laser machine, the end result would not differ significantly. Please enlighten me with advice. Thanks
