Port -Wine stain combined treatment with medical laser and intense pulsed light

What is a Port -Wine stain?

Port – Wine stain (naevus flammeus) – is a congenital vascular malformation of skin, known as the “wine stain”. This is a flat red or bluish spot on the skin. The most common place of a Port -Wine stain is on the face. Although this is called vascular dysplasia, but it is believed that the cause of the disease is not altered skin blood vessels, but the failure of their innervation. Underdeveloped vascular innervation of the dermis causes blood vessels always to be dilated, what visually looks like a red spot on the skin.
