Port wine stain concerns. Have lasers improved? Are there other options?

Deeper wavelength lasers for cobbling for port wine stains.
If you have cobbling, deeper penetrating lasers are best. Since the invention of pulse dye laser, newer lasers such as the Excel V can deliver dual wavelengths. Additionally longer wavelengths lasers penetrate deeper into the skin, such as the 1064 Nd Yag. These are more effective than the pulse dye laser. Consult an expert for an opinion on possible treatments. All the best, Dr Davin Lim. Brisbane. Australia.
