They usually appear at birth and tend to become darker and thicker with age. Many clinicians consider the gold standard to treat PWS is pulsed dye laser (PDL) with wavelengths of 585 nm or 595 nm. But PDL is not suitable for patients with Fitzpatrick skin type V or nodular lesions. Vascular-targeted photodynamic therapy (PDT) might be an alternative approach in… CONTINUE READING
