Default Why should I have lazer treatment?

I am 29years old and have a portwine birthmark that cover half my nose and the area on my right cheak from under my eye to my mouth. As I have gotten older it has definately got darker and has started growing small lumps. I had one lazered off just before my 21st birthday because it kept bleeding. My birthmark does not cause me any discomfort at all yet the treatments I have had to date have made me sick and with large painful blisters and swelling. I have to travell quite some distance for treatment. It is also very expensive and I do not have private health insurance. So why is it that everyone acts like it is just natural that I should want treatment?? :-\
