Port Wine Stain

Affected by Port Wine Staining?

Port-wine stain (PWS) is an abnormality in human skin due to abnormally formed finer blood vessels which may mimic the colour of port-wine hence the name port-wine stain (PWS). If left untreated then the port wine stain will persist for the rest of the life although the colour of port wine stain may change with time to dark red to purple and brown and sometimes development of tiny bumps on the skin, but this doesn’t always happen.

These are mostly discovered at birth and however only few cases have been reported later in life when it is called acquired port-wine stain.

The cause of port-wine stain is not clearly understood but one theory suggests the nerves controlling the fine network of the blood vessels don’t turn off following chemical signals in these nerves hence these fine blood vessels enlarge to give this colour of port wine stains.

If it is around the eyes, then it may cause glaucoma (raised eye ball pressure). And if this is the case please consult your own GP to get help. Port-wine stains are best treated with Pulsed Dye Laser (PDL) with wavelength frequency of 585mn but this is not available in every city in UK but you must explore this yourself.

What does the treatment involve?

If you do not get any joy, then you may contact Renew Skin and Health Clinic on 01926 422 454 to have a consultation booked in with us. At our clinic we apply a numbing cream for 40 min prior to laser treatment so that there is minimal or no discomfort.

Additionally, we use a cryogen cooling device which actually part of the modern laser in our clinic and application of cryogen cooling significantly improves the outcome of the Pulsed Dye Laser (PDL)treatment.in general, port-wine stains fade by 70-80% after 8–10 treatments.Some lesions typically respond quickly than others and for eg facial lesions or leck lesions tend to respond faster than one present in lower limbs.

For the treatment of port-wine stains, hemangiomas, and facial telangiectasias, the 585 nm pulse dye laser has the best clinical outcome record for both the effectiveness as well as safety profile, regardless of patient skin phototype.

Dr Jha was so welcoming, calming and professional. He walked me through the procedure, his extensive knowledge and experience and put me at ease about a procedure I’d been wanting to get for years. He checked in with me EVERY DAY during the healing process and offered constant support and insight. I would recommend Renew to anyone looking for the treatments they offer! A+

I have received an excellent service and treatment at the renew skin and health clinic in Leamington Spa. I had a small ugly lump on my lower lip which was diagnosed at the Clinic by Dr. Jha as a venous lake. This was treated with a special laser and within a few weeks the lump has disappeared and my lip has healed. I can highly recommend this service and treatment for complete removal of a venous lake. All the staff are very professional, full explanations on treatment and excellent follow up have been received. Thankyou Jane

Absolutely first class service. Felt at ease as soon as I walked through the door. Everyone so welcome and I was nervous at the appointment but was so at ease straight away by all staff. Im so pleased with the results but also the aftercare is amazing and the Dr is always available to answer any questions at any time and replies almost straight away. I cannot recommend this clinic enough. Thankyou for giving me so much confidence after the treatment. Thanks again

I’m currently undergoing a series of laser hair removal treatments at Skin Renew in Leamington, and I couldn’t be more pleased with the experience. The care and professionalism exhibited by the team are exceptional. Dr. Pravalika, in particular, ensures that I am comfortable throughout each procedure, providing a reassuring presence and meticulous attention to detail. I highly recommend Skin Renew for anyone considering laser hair removal.

Been going for laser hair removal for a few months now! Been through a variety of different treatments and clinics – this has been the best experience so far!! Painless and effective laser hair removal! Dr Pravalika is super attentive and knowledgeable – makes sure I know what she’s doing and what settings are used!! She checks in multiple times throughout treatment – absolutely brilliant!

Went to get a skin growth removed by laser. Very good consultation, treatment, and attention to post-op care. They proactively got in touch after the treatment to make sure I updated them about how I was doing. Brilliant. Very happy with the result, and would go again. Also, polite and friendly. They know what they’re talking about, I’d recommend.
