What Are Port-Wine Stains?
Port-wine stains are vascular birthmarks that emerge from an anomalous development of blood vessels in the skin. They are uniform, purple or red marks on the skin that may thicken, darken and progress into a cobblestone-like appearance with time. Port-wine stains can diminish your morale, but we have the ADVA laser treatment that eradicates them, and in turn, boosts your self-confidence.
The vascular birthmark can develop anywhere but mostly on one side of the body. Around 65% of this type of birthmark develops on the head and neck. Those that grow on the upper part of the face may be associated with Sturge-Weber syndrome, glaucoma, or Klippel Trenaunay syndrome. Port-wine stains cannot disappear on their own but can be treated with laser therapy. We trust that every guest can boost their natural beauty with our gentle and effective treatments.
How Do Lasers Work in Treating Port-Wine Stains?
Laser therapy is harmless, effective, and aims at abnormal blood vessels. Laser therapies can make the birthmarks less visible by shrinking the blood vessels in the birthmark and fading them. Port-wine stain treatments usually take 6–8-week intervals.
At Focal Point Salon & Spa, the laser therapy is completed within a few minutes per area. The high concentrations of light from the ADVA laser are effective on the head and neck. The red color soaks up the thin light beam from the laser in the blood vessels.
Following the port-wine stain laser treatment, our guests can anticipate having some minimal redness for a couple of days and enjoy limited downtime, so you will be able to go about your normal routine. Port-wine stains can completely disappear in some guests, or the color gets significantly reduced in others.
