Default PWS Clinical Trial in NYC

The Research Department at the Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York is currently recruiting patients for a clinical trial involving laser treatment to treat Port Wine Stains.

To qualify you must be 18-65 years of age with a Port Wine Stain of at least 5x5 cm. You cannot have had treatment six (6) months prior to enrollment and PWS located on the hands and lower legs cannot be enrolled.

Patients will be required to visit our Manhattan office twice a month for 5 months (5 monthly treatments with a 2 week follow-up after each treatment). After the final treatment you will be asked to return 2, 6 and 12 weeks later for follow-up.

Please visit our website to find out more about our practice and clinical trials:
