ABSTRACT
Port wine stain (PWS) birthmarks are a congenital and
progressive vascular malformation of the dermis, involving capillaries,
which occurs in approximately 0.7% of children. The objective of
laser surgery for this and similar conditions is to cause selective
thermal damage, thrombosis, and, eventually, permanent
photocoagulation in the PWS vessels. To achieve this, the radiated
