forehead birthmark

I am a middle aged dark skinned male, and  I have a light birth mark on my forehead. I've visited two doctors regarding this issue and they both told me that there is no treatment to darken this light birthmark. Are there any treatments that for my condition ?

If there isn't anything like a mole to treat, and just changes in the pigmentation, there isn't any way to treat this, unfortunately - https://www.webmd.com/parenting/baby/birthmarks#1

There are some other things you can do, though - some use cosmetics to darken it, others use medical tattoos - https://www.realself.com/question/melbourne-fl-darken-birthmark Talk to a licensed plastic surgeon about that.
