Red birthmarks (most commonly Port Wine Stains) may be treated with the Pulsed Dye laser, Nd:YAG laser and with the IPL, all of which progressively shrink blood vessels causing the birthmark to fade. Multiple treatments are always required. Flat birthmarks tend to respond better than raised ones, although even in this latter group it is worthwhile having a test treatment. Laser Skin Care is the only clinic in Perth to offer the Cynosure Cynergy multiplex laser for treatment of Port Wine Stains and other vascular birthmarks and lesions. The Cynergy laser combines pulsed dye and Nd:YAG lasers and allows them to be used sequentially for improved results and added safety.
