In brief: It can be.
Pulse dye laser can make a big difference here but it takes multiple treatments.
It works about 3/4 of the time to make a real difference. The younger the treatment, the better.

In brief: Yes
The candela lasers can be excellent for treating port wine stains and was truly one of the first "success stories" with lasers.
