Port Wine Stain

Written by Dr. Ringpfeil

Port Wine Stains

Treatments: PDL, Nd:YAG, KTP


These birthmarks present as wine-colored areas on the skin with or without swelling. They gradually enlarge for the first year of life and do not regress.

Laser treatment is possible at any age, yet the newer the birthmark, the more likely it is to completely eradicate the unpleasant color. Many treatments are often necessary to achieve results, and bruising can be expected with each treatment.

With darker skin types there may be a chance of lighter-color skin remaining at the site of the original birthmark. Scarring is extremely rare.

I found this to be a very pleasant and professional appointment -- better than most .... I would absolutely recommend to others and will utilize the many services available at this office.

The staff was very friendly, helpful and professional. The doctor herself is a pro, I was very impressed and will definitely recommend her to others, especially of my race. Its very hard to find a good dermatologist and I believe she is wonderful and really knows what she's doing. I am glad that I came here, thank you.

The openness and friendliness. The doctor was very careful to make sure I understood. Thanks. The fact that you urged me to come back for an annual exam I consider very kind and caring.

I had problems with my insurance. Since you took my insurance information over the phone it might have been nice to know that before I came in so I could have fixed it.
