There are several natural ways to fade the birthmarks though they may not eliminate them completely. Listed below are some of the effective ones:
Lemon juice: Lemon is natural bleaching agent and has properties of skin lightening. So, applying lemon juice on birthmark will help you fade birthmark over time. Using lemon for birthmark removal is not a difficult process. Just dab cotton in lemon juice, apply it on birthmark and leave it there for 20 minutes.
Olive oil: Olive oil is natural moisturizer, which helps rehydrate damaged skin cells. It helps lighten birthmarks as well.
Iodine solution: Iodine solution can also be used to remove birthmarks, especially moles. The process is very simple. You will need to apply iodine on the mole twice a day and after some period of time; it will come off on its own. Iodine can help you remove mole but you need to take care while using it as it is a toxic product.
Apple cider vinegar: Apple cider vinegar can surprise you when it comes to removing warts and birthmarks. It is an effective remedy for moles.
Birthmark creams can also be used to remove birthmarks. Birthmark creams contain bleaching agents such as hydroquinone. These agents lighten skin tone and as a result birthmarks fade away.
In case topical and oral medications don’t work, corticosteroids can be used to remove birthmarks. They can be used in oral form or corticosteroid injections are used to remove birthmarks. They work by speeding up the shrinkage of birthmarks, ultimately eliminating them completely.
Laser therapy is considered the most effective option among birthmark removal options. For the treatment of vascular birthmarks, laser works by making blood vessels less visible and prominent. In case of pigmented birthmarks, laser breaks the pigments fading birthmarks and ultimately removing them.
Surgical birthmark removal is often the last option, when no other option works. Surgery is mostly performed for large birthmarks or that are found in internal organs.
