Question:

I have a red birthmark that takes up most of one side of my face. Is the fraxel laser effective in treating these?

Answer:

The red birthmark that occupies the majority of one side of your face is most likely a port wine stain. The fraxel laser is actually not the appropriate laser to treat this.  Instead, the pulse dye laser can be used in order to lighten the color of this lesion, and also to prevent textural changes and darkening, as well as bleeding over time.  Fortunately, we have the pulse dye laser and have two decades of experience in using this to treat these port wine stains.
