Default a change for me

I see alot of stuff on here but nothing about how people are progressing with the removal of their PWS how it feels etc. I will give you a little background on me and my story maybe it can help someone out here.

I am 35 years old have 2 teenage children a man who loves me and a full life. My parents were never able to pay for treatments to try and remove the PWS from my face and I had done several treatments with a dermatologist who happened to have a laser and thought she could make progress. NOTHING!!!! Feeling extremely defeated I gave up, gave in and quit treatment all together. As I get older the thicker the birthmark becomes and the more cobbling I have on it. Low self esteem still in full force I keep my face to the ground and plowed through.

I read something someone on here had posted about how we forget that we have the PWS and start to fell comfortable and how there is always someone who lets you know exactly how different you are really.... With that in mind I have done alot of research as to how to effectively get rid of the PWS that sits below my left eye and down almost to my lip. I found an amazing doctor named Tiffany Hamilton here in Georgia. She uses multiple lasers to treat the birthmark and I have already seen great results in the 2 weeks since I had the treatment.

Long and the short of it.... Don't let anyone tell you its impossible! Keep going till you get the answers you need and see the results you want! I may not be 100% ever but I already feel better about myself!

I would post the 3 photos I habe of the process but they are too big to post and I have no clue how to fix them. Thanks for listening!
