Background and Objectives: Although cryogen spray
cooling (CSC) in conjunction with laser therapy has become
the clinical standard for treatment of port wine stain (PWS)
birthmarks, the current approach does not produce
complete lesion blanching in the vast majority of patients.
The objectives of this study are to: (1) experimentally
