Question Waxing?

Hi, I have been shaving and am now considering waxing; however, I was just wondering if you can wax hair over the area with the Port Wine Stain. Has anyone tried this before or know if there will be any affects? Thanks.

I shave my legs, but I did try waxing them once with a couple of my girlfriends in college (had to experiment with NAR when it was new). I had no problems with it. I'm not a doctor or anything but I think the hair follicles and roots are more on the surface of the skin as the PWS is deeper in the skin.
