Spotlight on Port Wine Stains

Port wine stains are birthmarks that can appear on any part of the body. They get their name from their red, pink, or purple appearance. Although port wine stains will not go away on their own, they can be reduced or completely removed by a pediatric dermatologist using laser skin treatments.

Port wine stains are flush with the surrounding skin, and while some are very small and hardly visible, others can be very large. They are not dangerous and do not increase the risk of other skin conditions, but people are sometimes unhappy with their appearance. Pediatric dermatologists can fade port wine stains using laser therapy. It usually takes multiple treatments for port wine stains to disappear completely.

Whether you need a cosmetic dermatologist for an aesthetic treatment, a pediatric dermatologist for a childhood skin condition, or a clinical dermatologist for acne treatment, Advanced Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery can provide the service you need.
