I have had lots of laser surgeries done on both legs (as I have a port wine covering about 1/3 of me). Yes, it has faded it a little, but the area is so massive, I would have to make it a fulltime job to get the whole things done. Also, it takes about ten surgeries per area to make any difference. I also heard that it only lasts ten years, like eye surgery.

I am waiting for stem cell surgery to be possible. I hope they can do that before I get into my 50s, as I am afraid my marks will get soar and bleed, as one doctor told me.

I heard Harvard is experimenting stem cell surgeries on port wines. The president has a PWS. Anyone know about this?
