Port Wine Stain Often a Challenge
While your doctor may be able to achieve better results using more aggressive settings, scar/injury risk also increases.
Many sessions may be necessary to effect the best possible outcome (even more than you've already had)
Sometimes, PWS or a component of it does not respond further to treatment.
While newer technologies may be in development to "reach" these stubborn PWS, PDL is still the best current option for treatment.
