I started being treated in 1992, when I was 16 weeks old. I regularly received treatments in NY, with Dr. Geronemus every two months, until I graduated high school. I went through half a dozen different generations of laser in that time, and grew alongside the research Dr. G was doing. Now at 28, I have over a hundred surgeries and treatments under my belt, and I have seen a lot of changes in my port wine stain. I am happy to speak to anyone, anytime about my journey, and about the therapy’s I am in now for my conditions.
