This port wine stain was extensive, extending from the chest, neck, ears, and down the back. After 5 brave laser sessions, I have managed to fade this by at least 80 %. I still think we can improve the texture even more. I used a V BEAM laser - recovery following each laser session was 7-8 days. For deeper blood vessels, I use either a 755 or 1064 laser. This procedure is life changing. 90% of all port wine stains can be faded with laser. In Australia, Medicare grants 6 subsidised treatments per year. Dr Davin Lim
