Birthmark stains like port wine stains are a source of concern for many patients. Prof. Dr. Ikram Ullah Khan, the best skin specialist in Islamabad, uses state-of-the-art technology like Candela V-beam Perfecta for the treatment of port wine satins. These treatments are best known for giving even skin tone to patients.
Port wine stain also known as nevus flammeus characterized by a congenital birthmark. It is a smooth, flat red patch present at the time of birth or appears shortly after, because of abnormality of blood vessels on the surface of skin. If left untreated, this mark increases in size and becomes darker.
Although these congenital marks are sometimes harmless but are a matter of cosmetic concern when they arise on the face or neck.

Candela V-beam Perfecta is available in Prof. Dr. Ikram Ullah Khan’s Clinic in Islamabad and is effective in curing port wine stains on sensitive areas like the face. This laser is also known as a Pulsed Dye Laser. It is a non-invasive and non-surgical procedure that requires minimal downtime to remove the stain of port wine
Depending on the nature of the skin conditions of the patient, Prof. Dr. Ikram Ullah Khan does different sessions to cure Port Wine Stain. V-beam Perfecta emits wavelengths of about 585-590nm. This wavelength is absorbed by the hemoglobin in the blood vessels. This treatment helps reduce redness, removing blood vessels, and severe vascular skin problems. Prof. Dr. Ikram Ullah Khan adjusts the wavelength, energy, and pulse duration according to the skin condition. At the end, cooling gels are applied to the skin of the patient. You will feel a vivid fade in your stains after your first session. But sometimes keeping in view, skin condition and individual factors, multiple sessions are required to cure port wine stains.
Avoid scratching your treated skin area.
Do not exfoliate your skin for at least a week.
