Did they really say that? I would consider looking for a second opinion. I've seen before and after photos of dark PWS that lightened significantly after laser treatment, and treatment usually has higher efficacy in children. I'm not expert, and I only have a facial PWS, but I don't see why it isn't worth a shot.
