Port Wine Stains Treatment in Dubai

A port-wine stain is a birthmark that is present at birth and can be seen in individuals of any gender. Port-wine stains are caused by a malformation of small blood vessels in the skin. A port-wine stain is a type of birthmark that belongs to the vascular birthmark side.

This type of birthmark may darken or thicken over time, but does not necessarily increase in size proportionally as the individual grows. This is why a constant check on the area with stain is very much important. Port-wine stains are typically permanent birthmarks that do not fade on their own, although there are rare cases where they may lighten slightly over time. However, there are several effective treatment options, such as laser therapy, available for reducing their appearance.

Signs & Symptoms

Port-wine stains appear at birth, vary in shapes and sizes, and are most commonly found on the face, neck, scalp, or limbs. Early port-wine stains typically appear as flat, pink marks, but over time, their color may deepen to dark red or purplish. In some cases, the texture of port-wine stains may change over time, potentially becoming thicker and more pebbled than the original smooth flat marks.


Port-wine stains are formed due to capillary malformations in the skin.

Treatments Available

There are a number of options available for treating port-wine stains and other birthmarks. Some effective and common port wine stains removal treatments include:

  • IPL treatment: IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatment uses a light beam to reduce the appearance of port-wine stains and capillary malformations. IPL is highly effective for some other conditions like pigmentation and rosacea but it is not the first choice for the removal of port-wine stains. It requires several sessions to achieve successful outcomes.
  • Laser treatment: Laser treatment is a highly effective method for treating port wine stains and can produce successful results. It uses laser energy to effectively reduce the visibility of port-wine stains and capillary malformations. It is useful for both new and old port-wine stains. It also requires multiple sessions to produce desired results.

Post-op Care

You will feel swelling and bruising immediately after the procedure. The treated area may feel sensitive and irritated, similar to a mild sunburn, but this sensation is temporary. Most side effects typically subside within a few days, but recovery time can vary depending on the individual and the extent of treatment. After laser treatment, it’s important to follow specific aftercare instructions provided by your doctor to ensure long-lasting results and minimize any complications or risks. Some common aftercare instructions include:

  • Relieve the discomfort and swelling with ice packs.
