port wine stain birthmarks and rosacea, laser light is absorbed by the blood in the
vein, damaging or destroying the vein’ so that it gradually dissolves and is removed
by the body’s immune system over the course of several weeks.
Anti-ageing treatments such as ‘skin resurfacing’ or ‘photorejuvenation’ also use
Photorejuvenation is used to reduce fine thread veins, brown or red pigmentation
