birth marks on baby face...will it fade??

my wee baby (6 months) has a couple of marks on his face. He has one sort of purple on his nose and upper lip which seems to fade and reappear depending on temperature and his mood. He has a more red mark on his eyelid and between his eyes which is always bright and slightly raised.

My first child had birthmarks but much smaller and they faded much quicker. I am starting to worry that these will not go.

Has anyone had a similar experience and did you try laser removal?

Thanks in advance

My DS had a raised, small strawbery one on his back and the doctor said it would disappear by 2 yrs and it did-completely.

A frinds baby had a 'strwberry' mark on his nose, that too was gone by the age of 2

He seems to have two varieties of birth mark...

He is still very handsome though!

Dd has a strawberry one on her bum, I was told it would get bigger, then go white in the centre and fade away.

It did that, it's still fading away more and more. She's 3.5 now and has had it since birth.

DS1+3 had/have these between their eyebrows. I used to call ds1's his poo alarm as it used to go bright red during/after a poo. He is 6 now and it is totally gone. DS3 is 8 months, and his is less noticeable as well.
