What is the latest for facial port wine stains?
I don’t treat these because it’s mostly a pediatric problem so I would suggest consulting with the nearest University based dermatology clinic that has a strong pediatric dermatology program at a nearby children’s hospital. For example, the dermatology training program at the University of Washington is affiliated with dermatology at our nearby main children’s hospital. They treat most of the port wine stains in the region. Also, pediatric dermatologists (they only see children) can be as good or sometimes better (less red tape). Call first to make sure they treat port wine stains frequently – not all clinics do.
Hope this helps, Dr. I
