The highly trained and experienced laser providers at Celibre have helped thousands of Los Angeles patients safely and effectively get rid of (or drastically reduce the appearance of) their unwanted port-wine stains.
We take a lot of pride in our efforts. We truly know how devastating having a port wine stain can be and we’ve seen the lives of the patients that we’ve helped transform due to the liberating effect of our laser’s ability to remove these disfiguring vascular birthmarks.
We offer only the best, state-of-the-art laser for this treatment, which is the Cynosure and Candela pulsed dye lasers. These two are the most powerful lasers out there for targeting vascular lesions and they allow our Celibre providers to offer the safest, fastest and most effective treatments for birthmark removal. These lasers target and heat up the dense networks of blood vessels, which damages their structure and effectively shuts them down. Because they can’t hold blood any longer, they are reabsorbed by the body causing them to disappear! Over time and with multiple treatments, this technology gives us the ability to drastically fade or remove port-wine stains permanently.
The beauty of these devices is that they are extremely safe. Because they’re designed to target only the unwanted blood vessels, the surrounding skin is left perfectly unharmed. This is the key to both the safety and efficacy of the Cynosure and Candela pulsed dye lasers.
Our treatment sessions typically last anywhere between 15-60 minutes, depending on how large of an area we are treating. The laser is very tolerable; most patients describe a feeling of heat combined with a slight snapping sensation, almost like a rubber band on the skin as the laser energy is absorbed. Celibre Medical uses the highest, yet safest energy levels to give you the quickest and most effective results. However, the downside of this is that the port wine stain will probably look darker, or even bruised after treatment. This is only temporary though and shouldn’t keep you from work, school, or any other activities.
We want you to feel totally empowered and educated about your condition and the treatments available to you for your port wine stain. We invest a lot of our time in your education and want you to know that we value and encourage your involvement in the treatment process. We are always available to answer any question, anytime throughout your treatment.
