What Causes Port Wine Stains?

Port wine stains are formed by clumped tiny blood vessels. When these vessels collect abnormally, they can result in large reddish-purple spots. These spots often appear on the face and neck but can also be present in other areas of the body. Port wine stains develop at birth, and their occurrence is impossible to control. However, their appearance can be reduced through laser therapy.

How Are These Issues Addressed?

ADVATx® Skin Rejuvenation is an impressive laser treatment designed to address these and other hyperpigmentation issues. This laser device will target your port wine stains directly using pulses of energy with pinpoint precision. These energy pulses will increase the area’s temperature until the mark is removed. Treatments can be repeated as needed, and there is no downtime required.

What Can I Expect?

Several sessions may be needed to get the skin you want. The number of visits you will need will depend on the size and location of the spots. The major benefit of ADVATx® is that it is not an ablative laser. This means that it does not remove the top layer of your skin, it relies on heat instead. This makes it safe, and effective, and it means that you will experience little if any, side effects after treatment.
