Using the pulsed dye laser for the port wine stain.

I use the pulsed dye laser, namely the VBeam laser, for port wine stains such as yours on the face.

Laser therapy is best for red birthmark

+1

The best treatment for vascular birthmarks is laser therapy, specifically pulse dye (PDL laser). This laser targets blood vessels under the surface of the skin. It can effectively treat redness associated with rosacea, angioms, scars, birthmarks and even some stretch marks.
