Default 17yr old-Birthmark that is dark blue

Hi evry1
I have a darkblue birthmark. The colour your skin would get after being beaten up-(bruised). The colouring is on one half of my face, also on the inside of my eye. I have no bumps or anything like that, my skin is still flat. I was born with it and has eventually spread from birth.
I am waiting on getting laser treatment but heard that if the birthmark is underneath the skin the laser is able to hit your nerve system. Can anybody help me with words of advice??? It woulld be greatly appreciated if they could tell me if they know more info of the birthmark that i have. :-\
