Default Re: Are Port Wine Stains Ever "Cured"?

Your daughter should have reached "peeked" clearance by now and should be able to go on a "one treatment" a year program. If there is still stain it is because it is deeper than the laser can reach (current laser you are having her treated with). Those vessels won't be reached until a new laser is invented or a new procedure developed to reach them. We are hoping to hear about this at our conference in California in October.
