Stop Wasting Money on Makeup: Aesthetic Facial Restoration Can Eliminate Your Port Wine Stain

Port-wine stains, so called because the discoloration looks like a splash of red wine, show up anywhere on the body, but are particularly bothersome when they appear on the face or scalp. They’re present at birth – usually as a pinkish stain – and they darken with age. Depending on where a port wine stain is located, it can cause disfigurement or at least a feeling of self-consciousness and poor self-esteem.

A port wine stain is really nothing more than a birthmark and is harmless in almost all cases. But, if the discoloration is upsetting to you, you may desperately try to camouflage it with makeup. 

Makeup is an imperfect solution though. It’s impermanent, messy, and easily washes off when you’re swimming or sweating, or if you get caught in the rain. Plus, makeup of the high quality needed to successfully cover up your port wine stain can put a serious dent in your budget.

At The Aesthetic Surgery Center in New York CIty, New York, Dr. Eilliot H. Rose understands the insecurities and dissatisfaction that can arise due to a port wine stain. He provides successful aesthetic facial restoration treatments using state-of-the-art laser technology and microsurgical techniques. 

Don’t keep covering up to feel confident. Instead, let us erase your port wine stain so you feel free to be you.

About port wine stains

A port wine stain, also called nevus flammeus, is a birthmark and can’t be prevented. When the discolorations appear somewhere other than the face, they’re usually just a part of who you are. They’re easily covered with clothes and even if they’re obvious, a stain on your arm or leg is not especially disfiguring.

While port wine stains are simply a genetic occurrence, you do have options in helping them fade or disappear.

Aesthetic facial restoration

We offer aesthetic facial restoration that can literally erase port wine stains so you don’t have to feel self-conscious or cover up with heavy makeup anymore.

Dr. Rose uses sophisticated laser resurfacing to destroy the pigment in port wine stains. The highly concentrated energy of the laser lightens port wine stains and is especially successful when used on the head or neck.

You’ll need several sessions to break up the pigment. The longer you’ve had the birthmark, the harder it can be to treat. The advanced laser technology available at the Aesthetic Surgery Center is adept at addressing even the most stubborn port wine stains in some of the most delicate areas, such as near the eyes or lips.

Dr. Rose is also an expert at addressing port wine stains that have become bumpy, raised, or especially thick. He can enlist a variety of lasers and even employ microsurgery, if necessary, to restore a natural, evenly toned appearance.

Custom treatment

Your port wine treatment is entirely customized, depending on the location, size, and depth of the pigmentation. Dr. Rose also enlists a professional aesthetician who can formulate custom concealer to camouflage the port wine stain until it’s faded to your satisfaction.

Custom-made makeup better fits your skin tone and is of a higher medical-grade quality than any you obtain from drugstores.

If you’re struggling with the embarrassment and self-consciousness caused by port wine stains, contact us at our state-of-the-art treatment facility. We can help you fade or eliminate the birthmark entirely so you enjoy smooth, evenly toned skin. Ditch the makeup – call our office or book a consultation online today.
