Capillary Malformations

Capillary malformations, previously referred to as port-wine stains, appear as flat pink or red stains on the skin. They are present at birth and typically remain throughout life (often becoming wartlike in nature) unless they are treated. Pulsed dye laser therapy often is effective at removing or lightening the discoloration. This is best done in infancy and often requires multiple treatments spaced several months apart.
