Sharon-
I don't have too much factual information on PWS, or types of lasers or anything, but I just thought it might be comforting for you to know that I was born with a PWS, and at age 15, it is almost completely gone. I've been getting treatments a few times a year since I was young (in fact, I'm scheduled for one tomorrow) and when I wear makeup over it, my PWS is almost completely invisible.

I know it might not help much with your concerns, but I thought it might be comforting for you to know that I was never teased in school (most kids just assumed it was a bruise, asked what happened, and were then very accepting of it) and I have a completely normal life Best of luck.
