Default Treatments other than laser

Hi all -

I'm new here. My name is Kari and I have a daughter (4) who has a PWS on the left side of her face that extends under her eye and up next to her eye.

She has done 11 laser treatments and, while it did lighten some, the results were not as good as we, and the doctors, would have liked.

We have decided to stop laser treatments for now as there really didn't seem to be much change the last few times that she had it done.

I am wondering if anyone knows of any alternatives to laser treatment to treat a port wine stain or is that pretty much it at this point?

Thanks!
