Default Re:When to start laser treatment

I live in Denver, Colorado and my 8 month old daughter just had her first laser treatment today for a PWS on her left cheek/jaw. Our pediatrician -- who is wonderful -- wanted to wait and see if it would fade and did not refer us to our dermatologist until she was 6 months old. When we talked to the dermatologist he said he would like to start laser treatments on infants with PWS as young as 2 months old! Apparently the younger skin heals better. So, I would say try and have your child treated as soon as possible.
