Port Wine Stains

Port wine stains are permanent vascular birth marks. They derive their name from the dark red or purple color that “stains” the skin. Port wine stains often appear on the face but can appear anywhere on the body. They get darker and thicker over time and sometimes develop an irregular or pebbled surface.
