What are Vascular Birthmarks?

More than 10 out of 100 babies have vascular birthmarks. These are made up of blood vessels bunched together in the skin. They can be flat or raised with pink, red or bluish discoloration.

The most common types of vascular birthmarks are port wine stains (PWS) and hemangiomas:

  • Port wine stains appear at birth. They are formed most often on the face, neck, arms or legs. Overtime, left untreated, port wine stains may thicken nd develop bumps. Port wine stains do not resolve untreated and last a lifetime.
  • Hemangiomas generally become visible with in he first few weeks after birth.
