I have a Port Wine stain on my chin, lip and cheek. I started laser treatments very young but stopped after I didn’t see changes to the size or color. However, Technology has improved and I am back at it! I had my second laser treatment this year, and I am seeing improvements! I had two “debulking” surgeries on my lip to decrease the size and create symmetry.

I have been making paintings of people with birthmarks which you can see on my Instagram page, @portwinestainpaintings! I am really happy to connect with people with birthmarks! Send me a DM if you want to chat. <3
