Port wine stains - Will using a laser on a port wine stain increase the risk of it becoming more nodular in the future?

Port wine stains and lasers

Just the opposite. Treating early port wine stains decreases the chances of nodules i the future. If they are nodular, we use longer wavelength lasers, early ones that are flat respond well to V BEAM pulse dye lasers.All the bestDr Davin LimLaser dermatologistBrisbane Australia.
