photoderm VL
 
Hi! My name is Hannah, I have a PWS that covers my right eye and continues into my scalp area. My PWS was a pinkish color until I became pregnant, and then it began darkening to a much darker shade. I am looking into laser tx- not for cosmetic reasons (I have already lived a wonderful 30 years without any problems ;) ), but because it is starting to change. In the area where I live, there is only the photoderm vl laser available for this type of tx. Has anyone out there undergone tx with this type of laser? ??? I have come across a few research articles that document success with the photoderm vl, but would like to hear from anyone else out there who have had experience with pws and photoderm vl. Also, since my pws covers my upper eyelid, I am concerned about how risky it is to treat this area. Thank you for your time in answering my questions. ;D

Hi Hannah. I'm sorry that I can't answer your question but if you go to www.Birthmarks.com they have a section about lasers. Also they have a support group that is for pws. I have learned a lot from them. My son, who is 2, has a pws. He just started treatment with V-Beam. Once again sorry i can't be more help.
