A port wine stain is a malformation of blood vessels that creates a discoloration of the skin. At a young age, it may appear to be pink in color but as one gets older, the color begins to darken and become dark red or purple. Port wine stains can occur on the face or body and unless treated, may continue to darken.

Rosacea Treatment Chicago
Rosacea is a chronic inflammatory disease that occurs most commonly in middle-aged, fair-skinned adults. The early stages are recurrent episodes of blushing that finally become persistent in dark-red erythema with facial spider veins. If left untreated, rosacea can result in the appearance of red lines, which result from swollen or damaged veins.
What causes Rosacea?
The exact cause of Rosacea is not known; however, symptoms are very well understood and there are a variety of lifestyle factors that may trigger outbreaks, such as certain foods and activities.
How is Rosacea treated?
Laser and Intense Pulse Light treatments have been found to be very effective in controlling rosacea. These treatments work by sending energy through the outer skin, concentrating on the dermal layer just below the outer layer. This energy lessons visible blood vessels, reducing extensive redness. Various oral and/or topical medications may also be used to treat bumps, pimples, and redness often associated with rosacea.
