Port wine stains and V Beam lasers
Good news is that it is small, so expect to have between 2-5 sessions depending on the exact location on your arm, your skin colour, and thickness of the port wine stain. Video explains the procedure. All the bestDr Davin LimLaser DermatologistBrisbane, Australia.
Port wine birthmark treatments
Thanks for the question. Most port wine stains are effectively treated with vascular lasers. In our Albany NY office we treat with pulsed dye lasers and YAG lasers tailoring the treatment to the characteristic of the vascular lesion. With these treatments we can effectively clear most lesions in a number of sessions. Find a practice that has experience with the latest treatments of birthmarks.
All the best to you,
